    Phew! For a minute there, I thought it might be the new babooning paddles issued to all Mods! :yikes:

    And guess what ? I got distracted as usual :eek: :D .......I think I was watching the blacksmith :confused:

    It's a beautiful piece of work, and that is the lead weight, the grey circle.
    Yep, Galgael in Govan.

    cheers,

    which is nowhere near govanhill, where i used to live

    the wonderful thing about glasgow is i could take a 2 mile trek to another part of town, 80% of which was in the woods

    it's a lovely town if you know the parks (of which there are many)

    I have no reason to doubt that a Moderator's inability to read PMs is fact, and in any case, I'd always give a moderator the benefit of any doubt because it is a thankless task.

    Nevertheless, anyone who uses this place and sends any PM that they would not really like to see in public is a fool. The numerous tools that allow such forums to exist are simply not secure.

    In fact, I'd suggest that this is stated in the usage rules clearly, to protect the Moderators.

    The consensus is that it's a mess :rolleyes:
    However, it's kind of redundant because of subsequent threads.
    Of the three Mods involved none has had time to wade through nine pages.

    I was quite serious, none of the Mods can read pms, it's just not set up that way.

    The beautiful sailing canoe is now sold however :D

    Josh said, "Can you hold these up so I can get a photie ?" so we have Toddy in Nazi salute :rolleyes:

    What can't be seen in the photo is that the structure above me is what was the last sail loft in Glasgow. It even has a hammer beam roof :cool:

    cheers,
    Toddy

    Hi Toddy,
    can I just echo the praise to all the Mod's and anyone else that has a part in making this site so good!
    As I'm sure 99.9% of us know you do a damn good job!

    Thank you kindly :eek: , but I reckon that it's the members who make this site kind of special :D
    I hear horror stories from folks who Mod other sites and chatrooms and it sounds like this one is a bastion of civilization :cool:

    And even the disagreements that we do have.........sit us down around a fire and we'd talk them out.

    The porn spammers though.........I'm sure there's a ring of hell waiting for them, especially the ones who target the scouts forum with children. :(

    cheers,
    M

    +1 to the praise of the mods

    Being a Mod is a thankless task... so thanks to the Mods.

    For the most part i agree. Too many inconsistencies though for it to be classed as good modding. I would more call it restrictive speech enforcement or opinionated modding.

    Not all the time, just on the odd occasion, but still, it is there. It needs working on somewhat. You see a mod has to be unbiased and go with the rules in EVERY situation where modding is required as accorded by the rules. I think that is forgotten at convenient times though with certain people. Which basically means that the rules suit as and when it suits the mods to enforce them.

    Many people on this forum already know this of course.

    Change ‘many’ in to a ‘disenfranchised minority’ and I would agree with you. Mainly would-be and wannabe mod, who lacking the respect of their peers or the experience and levelheadedness of a bipartisan independent free thinking person, want ‘their ways’ to replace the ways of the majority. And get all ‘bent out of shape’ when their wishes, direction or offers of ‘help’ are not welcomed with a pathetic gratitude and open arms. Like quite a few people they forget that this forum is not a democracy, we do not have rights, especially not equal rights. We, yes, all of us are merely guests, a welcome guest, but still a guest.
    It is good to be able to give back to the forum, but if you don’t like the way the forum is run, there are others, others that are welcoming, even boastful of the fact that they take the trouble makers, the banned, the bitter and the vengeful. I’m sure they have already sent out invites to any that they feel are kindred spirits

    Thing is Tad, me old mucker, that the 'troublemakers' you refer to dont cause trouble on other sites, only on here and British Blades, another site with a heavy handed and hypocritical approach to moderation. Why do you think that is? Hmmmmmmm? Answers on a postcard.

    If I found that I did not like the company I was keeping on a site, the stlye of Modding or how threads develloped...I would leave (letting folks know why) not sit and moan interminably.
    That is everyones option too.
    So the disaffected, those who feel hard done by can go to...where-ever they please realy!

    Picking at old scabs seldom encourages them to heal. I think it would be better to leave this one alone now. Please.

    I've been to "the darkside" and read some of the threads :eek: and I may not live upto my user name, but I'd rather be on here:) I'm no "shrinking violet" and been around the world, but some of the thing that have been posted recently were TOTAL uncalled for:rant: .

    I agree with Nagual let put his to bed once and for all, if we don't we lower ourselves to their level:(

    At the end of it all this is a public accessible site and available to all ages. which is something we should strive to encourage or the skills die:(


    Regards

    Richard:)

    P.S Sorry Chris I must have been typing while you posted.
