once again I keep suggesting. Ideally moderators should not get involved in discussions - if they love it that much they should relinquish their mod title and be normal posters and discuss all they want. If they cannot get themselves to do that then at the very minimum they SHOULD not police threads or discussions where they are involved.
Please acknowledge the power structure in this forum (even if you may not agree with it) and continue to spread the light to the extent possible.
Yeah, we lobbied for ages to get this POWER since we were so thirsty for it. And we have to protect that POWER STRUCTURE.
Keep fighting for what you think is right and go down. If the moderators gang up, that is the eventual outcome.
Oh, yes, we have a daily meeting with a dartboard set up, to decide who to "gang up" on. See above re: Feeling of Power.
how many people you knew once upon a time still remain ..or still post... please ask yourself why
Presumably the postor asks himself/herself the same??
Answer to all the above is easy. The internet has too many postors who missed important lessons in kindergarten. Some feel that the whole Duniya is set up for them onlee. Some claim that Moderators should not moderate threads where they have anything to contribute. In other words, if you are a policeman buying food in a shop, and you happen to see the store being robbed, you should just ignore it because, hey, you are yourself a shopper there and may feel that the prices are a bit steep too. If you happen to have followed a discussion thoughtfully and see that one postor is being disruptive, then hey, you should do nothing about it because you have thought about it. We need the O.J. Simpson Jury ideally as Moderators.
Oh, yeah, we come to BRF to be chaprassis and get chai and wipe the bottoms of these postors for them, sure!
Bottom line for the discipline-challenged:
Some learn by themselves. Some get trained by cause-effect correlation. Some don't. Those that don't, leave, voluntarily or otherwise. So if many of those you admired here have left, hey, ask yourself why you haven't. The pity is when the continued disruptive antics of those who WON'T learn, drive away the intelligent postors. And that we do mean to try and head off.
And this is not a desi Diwali party with the brats all running around the legs of the guests, knocking over stuff and being general pests, with their mommas feebly cooing:
for the 27th time and being ignored.munna! don't run please
Here, if you don't follow guidelines, or are asked to cease and desist, your chair has already been moved right next to the door.
But hey, THANKS for your "feedback", however oily it is. Helps identify the corrections needed on the forum.
