Default This place needs a Moderator

Witness the spam and profane exhibition this afternoon of a poster I will refrain to identify. This board pulls in a lot of traffic and for something to stay so long before being deleted is beyond me.

Bring in long-standing, reputable posters who would volunteer to serve as Mods. The effort can start with this particular forum.

Well, we have two moderators. But we do need more I agree, wholeheartedly. I have sent a message to ST Redshirt, but that could take a while.

I already reported all the posts (I take it many of you have done that as well). However, they are still there.

Well, there was a thread by (unonimous) that was deleted fairly soon after I reported it. So, service is pretty good here. It's just not in-your-face which is what I like so much about being a member here.

The problem is, the admins probably can't be online and available all the time. That's why moderators from different time zones are needed... something like shift work!

I have moderating experience and I can be here non-stop. I'm a stay-at-home daddy

and he posted that pic in my baby thread.

Agree with NCC-73515

I believe many of us feel a sense of ownership for this board. We have great contribution from posters with wide-ranging personalities. I look fwd logging in daily and reading a lot of good stuff.

Please provide us the means to take care of our house.

You are talking about MyKlingonMouthYourMoronDicks little willy fotos here (or whatever his name was)?

Lets say, I am not impressed. Even in Kindergarden we had bigger guns. Dont you?

As I said, he should have posted in the "What do you look like?" thread.

Kids come on this forum all the time. By posting the photos he did, he could be charged with "attempting to solicit a minor" His IP address should be turned over to the cops, and a complaint filed.
