  • Why?

    Why not delete offensive posts, why close a whole thread that had some good arguments almost all of which were constructive, non offensive etc....

    Moderators:
    Moderators are appointed and dismissed by the forum’s administrator. Moderators are forum members with elevated rights. These rights are:
    • Moving, editing and deleting posts and closing topics. These actions do not have to be justified or explained to the author of the thread in question. Moderators are accountable for their decisions and actions only to the administrator.
    • Pointing out adherence to forum rules
    Mediating heated debates (replies may sometimes take a while because moderators may have to confer with PokerSchoolOnline and/or PokerStars)

    I think the 2 hilighted parts would help, especially the last... maybe this would stop the festering disease that seems to be creeping over this forum. We have a person that makes bets then decides not to pay them after accepting them, and when it gets heated the topic is closed. All this accomplishes is more anger directed at one person, resulting in more and more of the same types of posts.
    Mediate the dispute, get a solution and we can all move on. Simply closing the post will just lead to more similar posts and more anger from the community

    Its the questioning of power that gets threads closed,we are allowed to rip into each other as long you dont question the MODs.
    Look how many offensive posts go unchecked,but you mention a MOD,boom closed.

    Democracy is dead in PSO land,fight the power.

        What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here last week which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. And I don't like it any more than you men.

          Hmmm,let me take a wild guess at the why here..............

          "Because we said so!!!"

          Am I close? Am I warm?

            Remember when PSO used to MOD the forum?
            If you disagree he would throw his 15 years+ of poker play in your face to shut you up.
            Looks like the current MODs just emulate that model.

            I know Im one of the few that bumped heads with them,but it was something that rubbed me the wrong way as well.

              This used to be one of the fun forums around, it is becoming clear I think that it might just be time to move along to other places.. much like the pso games are just a stepping stone, maybe so this forum is too

                Looks that way or a mandate to stifle free thinking.

                    I have given this some thought the last few weeks myself. Especially after my last warning which I got 20 seconds after pushing the submit button. I found out that the truth about one of the teflon poster boys could get you a warning because it was considered insulting.
                    Upon questioning this by pm, the answer was essentially that we mods can do as they please and have to answer to no one. While this is true, the long term effect is that good people will get tired of all their petty bs and drivel from the teflon boys and will leave. It will be a sad day for pso when all they have left is pres and his ilk. And I for one will not give a RIP.

                        Great idea Joker, I will join you. I am fed up with the bs anyways and the mods playing favorites. Now watch this thread disappear before it catches on. So long

                            I agree but I don't feel like it will do one bit of good. I do think it will just give 10 days for the morons like Pres and his community to just have a free run of the forum. And you know the mods will just be sitting with their thumbs up you know where and nothing to do because they never reprimand the source of this forum's problems. But I will check back on the 13th with the rest of you. And if the mod gods see fit to giving their warnings out to the problems of this forum during this 10 day boycott I will gladly apologize and eat my words. And want do you want to bet I get at least a warning for this?
                            OK I'm over it ! ! !
