Some complain about things here on LJ’s, but I want to say that, overall, this is by far the best forum on the web. I’ve been a member of Sawmill creek far longer than LJ’s, but today I asked for my account to be closed. Not because of any of the members, or any of the threads, or any of the arguments or any of the drama over their. I did it because I am tired of the moderators.
LJ’s has a pretty “hands off” take on things here. I like that. But Sawmill Creek has a couple of moderators who are absolutely unprofessional. Ask them a question about the rules, and they give you a smart-alek answer. Ask from clarification and they accuse you of arguing, and then they start trying to find reasons to send you nasty PM’s, stretching the finest print in their rules and applying it to anything they can, in often ridicules ways, just to get you.
Here’s a good one… Lots of people over there use nick-names. Now I am told I can’t refer to myself as Stumpy Nubs. Why? Because I have a google blog where I also refer to myself as Stumpy Nubs. And so just using my name (Not saying Stumpynubs.com, they say I can’t even say “Stumpy Nubs”) is some how promoting my blog! And even though my blog is strictly non commercial with no ads or sponsors, they say it is for material gain.
Why try and apply these rules to ME? Because they have an advertising program that you have to pay $50 a year for, and they want me to join it. (More than once they have hinted to that in the latest set of PM’s)
One of them PM’d me this morning just to say they have been bashing me on their private moderators forum and that he didn’t find my woodworking show funny. I mean, come on, how childish can you get!
So I want to say that if you find some of the policy here doesn’t agree with you, remember, it could be MUCH worse! It could be Sawmill Creek!
Keep up the good work LJ’s!
