Spit,

Couldnt the person's adgenda change if others reasoned and talked with the person?

I still dont understand why you guys feel that DBP is operating the other runboard under the "my way or highway" idea. What has he done to cause this assumption in your minds?

Re: Who is the worst troll?


Hey UGF

Thanks for your concern.
Since you asked, I will give you the abbreviated version.
Don't really want to spend too much time on it, as I would like to move on.

Basically, I tried to play peacemaker between the warring parties and ended up caught in the middle. I had a private discussion with the nameless party regarding the good of the board. I thought we had come to an agreement, only to find the tune had changed, and the aforementioned party claiming no knowledge. At this point I decided, I did not want to live under the rule of one man.

I better stop there as I was making this a LONG story.
Sorry UGF, maybe things will change in the future, but the history is there, and I will not put MB existence in the hands of someone I do not trust.


]my my last post on the other board on the matter

I understand what you are saying, but why do you feel that DBP is running the board under "my way or the highway?" and why do you care so much on how he runs the board? Isnt it just a place to post your thoughts on the giants, other sports, other topics etc...?

Dont even try to be the peacemaker in any kind of drama between people. Dont even get involved. Dont even pay attention to it. You are better off that way.

it didnt seem like the board is going in any direction.

THAT is probably true

But its kinda what I do for a living too...

Always been my tendency, almost like you are doing now.

Hindsight...

I really do appreciate your input and concern on the matter.

Hope you find it to your liking to frequent both boards

We may be separate, but we are neighbors

And hopefully good neighbors

=D

UGF,

It is hard to explain to someone on the outside looking in. Things are sometimes said to people that other people aren't privy too. Things were said to Merkin and I that we just couldn't go along with. Those things said went against our principals on how to treat your friends and are better left unsaid at this point. As you know some animals change color when threatened like the chameleon. People are somewhat like that when their ego is threatened and tend to react in a dominating or explosive manner. This being said I will leave the rest for you and others to determine. You need not question but just look and observe.

Spit

You are kind of missing the point though. We were all Moderators and Administrators on that board. When we all had started it we decided we would try to be democratic. The matter in question was between two posters and it was unsure if one of them was who everyone claimed she was. Some of us wanted her banned, some of us didn't really care. However, once the poster was banned, DBP sent out an e-mail to all of us asking if we should let the poster back. Not a single one of us said yes. Most said no and some (such as myself) said it made no difference. After getting a consensus showing tand did it anyway. Thereby completely betraying the trust of many posters. I remained on the board as a Mod as I had no issues, but then he get angry over the fact that this board thrives more than his and treated me no differently than the others. Understand that I am still willing to talk with DBP on this matter, but he gives everyone the cold shoulder. So you see the problem doesn't lay in the hands of us over here.

BF2001

The reason we didnt make everyone a mod, is cause we wanted this MB to be governed by rules, instead of whim of one of the mods.

Also why we added this rule.
We plan on listening to the ppl on the board, so we hope it never gets to this.

BOARD VETO
(after April 15th 2006, let the board get started first)
If at anytime, 66% of the registered board members can vote via poll to overturn a Admin decision
To avoid stuffing ballots, only members with 2 months service and 25 posts can vote.
Vote will not be a poll, but a thread so the voters status can be verified
