Seriously, Mods? You make great librarians, but otherwise..

How about you stop this autistic need of yours to see posts filed according to topic, and actually MODERATE something? You make great librarians, but otherwise, your standards are lacking.

Exactly! If you were to borrow a book from a library about plumbing, you would not expect it to change to knitting and sewing half way through chapter one.

Not quite the same this, though, is it? A reader is a passive recipient; on a forum it's more like a conversation, and digression is a part of all natural conversations. You know all that, of course. I guess what the OP is unhappy about is that mods are sometimes a little trigger-happy.

"Keep on topic, for God's sake!" Isn't that what women complain about when their men insist on a strictly linear progression while talking?

But if you borrowed a book from a library about computer programming and after two chapters it turned into a cracking bird with a pizza on one hand, a bottle of single malt whiskey in the other and not a shred of clothing anywhere, would you go back to the library to complain?

I don't agree, if a guest came to PF to find information about a bus route in Krakow for example, then the best place to look would be a thread titled "Bus routes in Krakow". He or she would not expect to find the answer in a thread about food..

would you go back to the library to complain?

I would probably complain about their filing system. In my opinion "computer programming" and " the arts" should be filed separately.

I've worked in a few libraries. The one in Savannah, Georgia was my favorite, and is perhaps the most fitting example for the PF analogy. We were near downtown, and like most public libraries, we were often a daytime sanctuary for the city's homeless population. Most of them were quiet, and caused few problems, even the ones who thought there were government chips implanted in their arms, or the ones whom showered so seldom that they made entire sections of the library stink like burnt onions and cheese. We served them all. However, when the eventual unmanageable elements came in, the ones whom we would discover hunched over behind the atlas case pleasuring themselves, or furtively ripping pages out of the Georgia Congressional Record; then it was time for them to go.

Well I think that sometimes you could allow discussion to flow freely in the direction posters want,sooner or later it will go back on track.

Remember it's a fine line between a discussion taking an interesting direction and a discussion returning to various themes that have been done to death in other threads.

Oh,come on,this way you can easily close at least half if not more of the existing threads.What I am refering to is my exchange with this Lyzko dude about differences between occupied Poland and collaborating Denmark in the thread "Jewish roots of Poland" or something.I don't know why mods closed it when I was in a process of proving how ignorant this Lyzko dude is.

That's probably on the edge of being relevant. If it started to dominate a thread, it might be better to move it to a new one.

I was in a process of proving how ignorant this Lyzko dude is.

I think it would need to be a very long process indeed. He comes across as being very far from ignorant.

I thought that was a chatroom?

i thought that a forum, based on a particular topic like Poland, would be an accumilation of knowledge so that when someone wants to find out something they can look it up and and get the relevant information rather than the rants of people who are addicted to such a forum?

Bus routes, yes; complex social, political or historical issues, no. There should be a little leeway allowed instead of cutting people off at the knees for a little digression. Some mods are notorious for this.

Wikipedia can be useful for that.

I have no problem with what you say. Mods and Admin do, however, have a big problem with a discussion taking any direction other than strictly within the letter of the OP's remit. Boring.

Merged: Thin skinned hypocritical mods

Just got a warning for pointing out scuzzy behavior by the mods... again!
Someone asked why off topic comments were being allowed to stand and I said it's because the poster in question gets preferential treatment.
That comment got moved to random.
I posted again that moving my comment to random was proof that this poster was being treated more..... delicately than others.
And then I get a warning. Hypocrisy much?

Due to the fact that moderation on this forum reached a new low. As I cannot respond properly to some psycho troll or stupid trash from the gutters of a poster, while it can do as it pleases.

I'm not gonna argue anymore with anyone on this forum or respond to any post, question or whatnot. If someone want to talk pm me.

Still I'm going to start some new threads now and then but I'm not going to argue or post in those threads either. They are going to be hidden under a heap of some sh...ty threads that has very little to do with a new thread - well whatever.

Just to let to know to those who wants to know.

It is getting a little annoying to be receiving unearned warning or at least have both posters receive them while exchanging banter.
It has become apparent that it is not the scuzzy Mods plural but the scuzzy Mod singular.
The one that is running the TAG TEAM here.
The only way to nip this huge problem in the ass is to have the Moderators sign in publically when they are Moderating so we can make transparent which Mod is the Hitler one with scuzzy behavior running the Tag Team.

I mean we already know which one it is but if they were to sign in publically it could be confirmed so we would know when we could posts safely without being harassed by the scuzzy behavior by this Mod.

And you didn`t keep your word. You keep arguing in most threads, and litter good topics with trash posts.

Vincent is an o.k. dude and will at least reply back with an explanation which I respect.
The mystery stealth one is ARTS, delph's buddy.
His tactics are so blatant that I think he is to embarrassed to give explanations to his bias tactics in fear it would confirm his Tag Team.

I still think Pam is moderating too by the way she thinks she is in control over other members with her condescending posts of them without so much of getting a warning.

This is why I raise the question of why the Mods should sign in publically so we know which one is being the bias Tag Team mod.

Milo already pointed out that Arts, delph and Pam are the "Tag Team".
I tend to agree after taking notice of the consistency of this B.S.

You mean subconscious mind control? That`s fascinating.

I knew nothing about ARTS.
As for delph, how can he be in the Tag Team if he isn`t a mod?
johnny reb 16 | 3,444
3 Mar 2019  #19
He is personal friends with the other two in real life.
When Arts comes on to Mod delph starts his provoking Baiting and then Arts gives the person that responds to such provoking a warning for responding to delph's Baiting.

A long time sick game here.

Yet delph receives none for starting it.
Go look in random chat post 3164 where delph FIRST responded to me.
I get the warning yet he started it.
delph doesn't do that when Vincent is moderating because when he does......well just look at the pile of warnings delph has.
Pay attention pawian and you will learn.
pawian 157 | 9,053
3 Mar 2019  #20
Yes, I want to learn because I have always been hungry for knowledge. But in case of the TAG team and moderating conspiracy theories, I am interested in it mainly for amusement. I don`t care about those warfares between members and mods, they are simply funny from the sociological and psychological point of view.

I have always admired when adult mature people engage in those games and they seem to treat it very seriously. .

I am so tired of all this. As usual you have no idea what you are talking about. You put 2 and 2 together and make 5 every time. I have not moderated here since giving up my post in 2015, but you will not let your obsession with me lie.

One minute I get this:

"I know for a fact that you are not as moderator here anymore."
polishforums.com/feedback/political-bias-moderation-83256/#msg1637430

And then I had months of you announcing to the forum that I was a secret mod and was deleting your posts and suspending you. I even had to ask to have a thread that you had started about me being a secret mod to be deleted, such is your obsession.

polishforums.com/feedback/member-warning-system-prevent-abuse-spam-off-73437/5/#msg1664457

Arts, delph and Pam are the "Tag Team".

I really do believe you have mental health problems.
When I opened my current account after closing my old one, I set it to not receive any private messages. This was due to all the abusive posts you sent to me when I was moderating, for my terrible crime of giving you a couple of warnings. You being the giant snowflake that you are, have been on my case ever since. Your 'Tag Team' would suggest to me that there must be a degree of mutual co-operation going on. Seeing as though I don't send or receive any PM's I presume you think I keep in contact with the other team members by telepathy?

You might also be interested to know that it is not Arts but Admin that you are berating in posts: /off-topic/poland-random-chat-74400/19/#msg1670816

He is personal friends with the other two in real life.

News to me, I've never met a single PF member in real life.

You still don't get it, you blame everyone else for your warnings/suspensions, me, mods, Delph, the so-called 'Brit Bullies', but not once will you ever look at your own behaviour.You excel at dishing it out but you cannot take it back. You cry about snitches, but you have the dubious honour of being the only PF member to have had your report button deactivated by admin, such is your proclivity for snitching on others.

Take notice of what admin said about you here and you might understand why you are so easily banned.:

Forum criminals don't have the right to demand anything; you are on constant probation,

Sources please

Many of us here remember you CLEARLY posting how you enjoyed meeting delph's lovely wife while having dinner with them.
I guess ALL of US here read that post wrong. :-o
The first time you denied it that post "mysteriously" got delete.
That is when I started keep copies of all your lies.
Even after your Mod job you accused me of posting under different names.
You could never substantiate those lies though could you.
Why is it that you are the ONLY regular here that has never had any kind of warning ?????
That is a statement in itself ain't it Captain Happy. lol

the so-called 'Brit Bullies'

The 'Brit Bullies' was not a non-existant group. The group was real and abusive. The group ceased to exist some time ago, however.

IME some (not all but a good percentage) of British people are driven to emotional extremes (exasperation to blind rage) by anything that is different from Britain (maybe how they ended up with an empire - the desire to turn the world into Britain)... a large amount of Brit discontent in Poland is about trivial differences that most non-British foreigners here come to terms with pretty quickly....
pawian 157 | 9,053
3 Mar 2019  #26
No, their discontent is a clear sign of their willingness to integrate faster in Poland. They just copy Polish style of complaining about just anything, even when the situation is very positive.

I think that proves Brits are very OK guys, even when they complain, because it is so Polish.
