    I voted for a little more mod. I'm with Colton on this one. Let people say what they want and let people speak their minds. If it turns into a personal attack then it should be delt with.

    In my opinion, it's the internet. If you don't expect name calling, lies, and e-thuggery, you haven't been online very long. I take nothing that is said on the internet personally, as 95% of the people saying it have no clue what they are talking about, and would never say it to a person's face. This is just my opinion, but I hate reading through a thread that is a couple of days old and all I see is "edit, delete, edit, edit." You have no idea what was done or said, and I hate that. I have thick skin, especially when it comes to conversations on the internet. I don't think people's opinions should be moderated at all, unless it's a straight on "I'm going to come find you and kill you" threat type situation.

    Takes two people to have an argument. Some people like to throw some stones and cry victim when they come flying back.

    I don't think any more moderation is needed and I've said it before. If someone is trying to argue with you and you don't like it just stop posting? They aren't going to continue to argue with the wall. People get drawn into these arguments, go back and forth for several pages, then "this forum has gone to shit because of THAT guy, I had no part in this." The amount or severity of arguing is no more than it was several years ago during winter and could maybe be considered more tame.

    Ed/George/Tyler will throw a little poke in, a lot of members get ruffled and jab back, then cry for moderation when they got sucker punched. Just my opinion looking from the outside. I've been on this forum a long time and any shit fest I've been involved in I chose to get involved in or chose to stay involved in. There are some arguments you can't win so just shrug it off and stop crying.

    I voted for maybe a little more moderation.

    Like was mentioned before, if you find yourself in an arguement that gets personal, how much of that is brought on by yourself? Certain discussions call for someone to take the higher road and occasionally for someone to consider the people that their arguements are with. If someone has proven time and time again that they lack the ability to intellegently defend their stance or their point and then resort to personal attacks, why continue to argue with that person?

    That said, when someone goes out of their way to single out one particular individual or another repeatedly, that's really no different than school yard bullying and needs to be moderated.

He took it upon himself to try and drive away anyone he didnt think was "worthy" of being on here. He constantly said negative things about the forum and just overall acted like he owned the place.

    I am a mod on a few other forums and i know it's a pain in the ass sometimes. As far as it not happening recently, i would say a couple/few days is fairly recent. May be it is just me but when someone constantly makes personal attacks on me, i dont tend to forget about it overnight. It doesn't ruin my day by any means but i dont forget it...
    Maybe you should get a lane or STFU.

    ^This. Maybe people should be more prepared if they want to be on an internet forum. Like being prepared to be in an epic gun fight on the streets and carrying a firearm on every extremity, including my junk. Never know when my 5 other guns are gonna jam.

    The thing that made me love places like Clubgp, was the complete lack of moderation and the absolute "say anything you feel like" attitude. That is fine in some respects, but as far as this place goes, I have yet to encounter a problem with moderation... or even with anybody really. Say something dumb and get made fun of... talk shit and expect to get it back 2x as bad. Such is life.

    getting specific, i just have such a hard time seeing Ed and George as victims. its not a rip on them, i get along with them just fine on here and in real life, but it's like feeling bad for the velocoraptors that were killed by the T-rex at the end of Jurassic Park. back to generalizing, the more wellknown you are on a forum like this, the more critics you're going to have. sometimes people arent going to like you, and you just have to deal with it. most people usually know what theyre getting into when they respond to someone's rude remark, but no one wants to be the one to walk away before the shit actually starts. i like things the way they are, but i wouldnt leave if the site was moderated a little more.
