Don’t keep shutting down thread for no reason! papadon was not my thread but was aimed at me. We got some problems straightened out. Of those in disagreement there were no attacks or war clubs drawn. There were a few questions directed at me that I would be happy to answer without rage or language. Please wait and see if a thread goes south before dumping it. READ IT before locking it. Or go find a new job! Listen to the users on this site, we aint kids no more, get us some features we need like options for larger text or Spell check, things to help us not just act like a rent a cop and block us. If this make you mad then please feel free to bann me for good. Until then I will answer asked questions even if we do squabble a little, just like real people do, Watch the reality shows and learn about life. Hey, who stole my soap box.

She has done a tremendous job for us on this site since she has been here. She is super quick to follow up on complaints…always quick to get rid of spammers. Maybe you should take your sour grapes to a PM to her or others you want to argue with and quit airing your dirty laundry. It stinks

In my experience, she has let things go in other threads and people took it too far. She had to come along and end it. I believe it usually takes a flag for her to come along and moderate, which means it was other LJ’s who didn’t appreciate what was going on.

One vote for ban him for good. Yes, I fully expect to get blocked for this, papadan.

Hi Gary, thanks for your input. I actually have on numerous occasions over the year PMd Cricket on different matters. She don’t PM! Never got a single reply from her. I can’t remember his name now, halfshiemers ya know, but the original Admin that built this place would at least take the time to read a thread and even contct certain individuals about it before just shutting it down. She don’t read them or she would know, she just locks em if she receives even one flag. and the flags come from guys like you that are not involved. Don’t flag posts you don’t like, just don’t read them. Leave the flags for the ones involved and if it gets out of hand they will flag it themselves.

Poor little joe, you let me know if a bully blocks you and I will laugh at them for you. ;-)

The former administration did nothing to police the forums and allowed far too much. Martin did a great job launching this site. Debbie was a wonderful person, but didn’t do anything to police it.

Keep in mind that Cricket is hired by the owners to do this job. Too many of us, she does a great job. Regardless, she must be doing a good job in the eyes of ownership or they wouldn’t allow her to continue it.

I don’t know you or your comments or communications. But I have never had an issue getting replies from Cricket. I for one wouldn’t be around here anymore if she hadn’t cleaned it up.

I wont argue with you monte on that, but she does need to read and see whats going on. there was no reason for that thread to be locked. If it was getting too wild I would ask for the lock. I flagged 6 posts in the magnaflux thread and wrote one post asking for a shutdown, before she finally locked it. I love a good debate and snide remarks and critisism can be fun just to break the monotony But I object too when people turn mean and make personal attacks instead of keeping it to the thread content. Martin really did not do too much policing but when push came to shove he did handle things. That’s my point.

Cricket hang in there. We are ALL behind you 100%. You are doing a wonderful job. Those who matter, do matter. Those who don’t matter, don’t matter. If someone is that unhappy with the way you do your job, they have the freedom to take their venom elsewhere.

I think that Cricket does a great job and has responded to me a couple of times when I sent a PM.

Just a little friendly advice: The fact that you are feeling persecuted should tell you something. I appreciate a snide remark as much as the next guy, but you are one of the few people that I remember only because your remarks often cross the line to mean and not because your contributions where helpful or even funny. Just saying.
