For lack of a better category. Feel free to move the thread if it is misplaced.
How nice would it be if people would simply report a forum violation they feel to be against the rules? No further action required. I’m certain this is one of the rules here, correct? No mini moderation? If not it should be. Nobody needs to be yelled at for a petty gripe. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face don’t post it here.
Do certain people here feel it is their responsibility to boss people around and be disagreeable? It has nearly chased me way. I avoided this place for years because of certain behavior. How hard is it to report and scroll by? Has the forum owner asked for help? Have they instructed you to type in all caps and act like each violation is a felony? I’d bet that isn’t the case.
So yeah here is my suggestion. Add a message board or forum rule that discourages members from imposing unsolicited moderation from
people who are not in fact moderators. It may save some aggregation on both sides. I’m not speaking only of my experiences. I see this happen daily to almost everyone. Enough already. It’s rude and unnecessary. Learn to pick your battles.
Leave message board moderation to actual moderators. What a concept.
