    Imagine being so pathetic, so childish, so bitchy, so bitter and twisted that you spend so much time on a geeky forum carrying out little vendettas by abusing strangers rather than just behaving like an adult and ignoring anyone whose posts you dislike.
    Imagine if your abuse consists of calling someone a paedophile , a child murderer and wishing him dead and you actually think you're the better person.

    Beyond pitiful.

    Imagine being the sadsack who, despite all that, keeps reading the posts and writing about them.

    What happened? Did someone realise that it would be a bad idea to Mod an Aussie during the ashes?
    I think it happened because there was a fairly spam-heavy period, where all of it was concentrated in the times in which I was

    a) awake, and
    b) a bored uni student with nothing better to do

    rather than any real aptitude for moderating discussions and such. But it was nice to be nominated, to feel loved. Or feared.

    ...respected? Probably going a bit far there.

    Nope, I have all of them on ignore so only see them when quoted so I'm sure it's much worse than I see.

    Does the sad little clique ever wonder why so many posters have deserted the place, ever wonder how many people get put off by their endless toxicity?

    Honestly, why do you stay then?

    And do you not think you can be a massive bellend?

    @Mola_Ram

    If you were made a mod now what changes would you implement and how does they relate to the core competencies of the position?

    I will just invite everyone to remember the two or three weeks recently where you fucked off 'travelling' and how the vibe of the forum changed literally the second you started posting again.

    I actually think the forum is kinda toxic-free mostly. It was much worse when I joined, where i was informed if dirtbox didn't call me a cunt by the end of the day I was clearly doing something wrong.

    There are, unfortunately, little pockets of toxic in the forum... it is weird how they gravitate towards ecosse, fuzzy and Dale/Chris.

    I imagine some others have the possibility to raise a complaint, I would listen to Roddy-Prime if he called out everyone for bullying but he has never given any inkling that he is dissatisfied with the responses he receives.

    Yeah, I don't think rodimus really deserves any stick. He's weird but the world would be boring without transformers photographing private dicks.

    I think the forum is pretty even handed when it comes to dealing abuse, we’ve all been called out for being a cunt at least once. It’s usually when you’re being a cunt, and you adapt your behaviour so people stop thinking you’re a cunt. At least some of use do. A bit like real life

    Roguey is politically opposed to the overwhelming majority to the Royalty yet manages to not be part of the pilloried.

    Is it because he's not a massive cunt

    I think he said they had to delay, I was frankly gutted, more so because we missed out on them having to get all Brokeback Mountain.

    Rodimus is one of the more interesting posters, my lunch breaks at my computer are better when he's posting.

    Would be a pretty shitty world if everyone just nodded along with each other in agreement.

    It also depends who calls you a cunt. Certain individuals calling me names only confirmed to me I was on the right side of history!

    Blah, blah, victim blaming horseshit.
    The simple, indisputable fact is that anyone of the abusive twats could just choose to use the ignore button but they don't because they have zero interest in any sort of forum harmony or behaving decently, they get off on being nasty to people.

    Because there are good people here too, simple as that.
    As much as the twats want to believe that they own the place, they don't.

    Of course I can, the thing is, if I find someone is a bellend, my instinct is to put them on ignore, not to follow them round the forum, calling them a child murderer over and over, strange, eh?
