In Topic: LGW Moderator Problems

Please.  I've been here a looong time and this site is hardly locked down.  The biggest change is the profanity filter and it's because it got so out of hand here Matt very reluctantly implemented it.  

 

It's always funny to me when people long for the old times (admittedly I do too) but imply it's somehow the moderating team's fault.  

 

We don't generate the content here.  You guys do.  Post garbage, the site becomes garbage.  And there's a lot of garbage posted here these days.  Sometimes I wonder if anyone actually comes to talk hockey.

 

Post great stuff, the site gets great again.  Pretty simple.

The problem I have isn't the "content" (I guess this is yours given the soap box there), there is no content when people leave. My problem is more a moderating style that went from far too lax to running this place like a kiddy daycare. Obviously someone missed the memo there's quite a lot of grey area, and given in this thread every time someone suggests they have a problem with the mods the first thing you and one or two other mods do is blame posters, it's evident there's hardly an ounce of introspective reasoning here, it's purely "them vs. us" and rife full of posts like yours talking down to people. I can only wonder what you'll do when you have no posters left to kick around.

Who knew there'd be volatility in the oil and gas industry? Was making bank until this recent oil price collapse.

 

Meh. Back to school to get another business degree and come out making even more.

 

I love the climate out here far more than Ontario's Great Lakes climate. Not nearly as humid as the US Southeast, but humid enough to bug someone who's a native of much drier climates. :lol:

 

Filed for Canadian citizenship already, waiting for the ceremony to dump US citizenship (the cost went from around $400 to around $2300) and attain German citizenship through mom.

This forum looks very locked down. It's like watching it go from one extreme to the other. Very unfortunate. I read some of these mod responses too and can't help but shake my head. Obviously this is a very different place than what I used to enjoy.


In Topic: Concerts. Who are you seeing?

08 July 2015 - 09:07 AM

Been a while since I was at any concert. Saw KMFDM in Pittsburgh, PA (5-6 hour drive from Toronto) in like.. 2012? Missed a Rammstein concert in 2013 in Vancouver, so pissed. Hoping they come around this way again. Their age is getting up there now, so hoping my chances haven't run out. Not many tours come to Calgary or Edmonton for some reason, so I tend to look also toward Seattle, Vancouver, and Spokane, for one that might be worth the trip.


In Topic: Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Forget both of them. It's well past time for Sean Avery to have his number retired.
