I'm only going to focus on this small bit of it because I'm too tired to respond to the rest and this particular point irks me.

We're not eating steaks. We serve the forum, the forum doesn't serve us. Everything, absolutely everything, we do is out of interest to the good of the forum. I know you know this, but I don't think I can stress it enough honestly. Ever since I became a mod I noticed what a thankless job it really is. I'm happy to do it because I enjoy working with the team and love MusicBanter, but I'm not getting any perks. Neither is anyone else. (Besides the bigger inbox space... but mine is still always filled up. I'm just a popular guy )

That statement was meant towards the wealth of information, and how it is given to us on a limited and controlled basis. It had no bearing on the leisure or luxury of modship. I knew it was a terrible analogy.

My point was, I'm expected to be satisfied with a nibble of truth, when you are given a multitude of facts on which to base your stance on an issue.

We're "given" a multitude of facts" because we're in the position to gather "a multitude of facts". We see behind the curtain because that's our job, we were hired to make judgment calls based on the information we observe. It's our information gathered by us, if we don't want to share it we don't have to.

That's how I feel about it.
Again, in case you didn't catch it the first time. That is how I feel, how I have felt, and how I will remain to feel about the issue for the foreseeable future.

I can't believe this fuss is still raging. It's ridiculous!

It's a clear case of somebody finding a horse before the owner loses it.
The way I see it, the mods didn't invent this new rule...Dirty did.

Somebody close this mess.

I was late to the party, and I like that logic.

The Virgin is fine because he's not going around insulting people which is more serious than the light trolling that he does from time to time.

When his trolling gets more extreme that's when he gets banned like he did for a week.

I'm glad that I've managed to stay out of this conversation for the most part. I'd like to remind everyone that this thread was intended for a more brief discussion of why someone was banned, and if you still have questions, PM a moderator. It's as simple as that.
