    Nope, I can’t help summarise at all.

    He was very wrong about compression damping though.

    I’ve been on holiday for two weeks, can someone summarise anything useful from the last seven pages please? Or is it the usual handwringing without any real point?

    It’s boring here without the arguments
    No it isn’t
    Yes it is
    Free the persecuted
    They were all right really
    Never hurt anybody
    it’s all a massive conspiracy
    No it’s not
    Yes it is
    It’s boring in here

    I thought TJ was a genuine helpful guy who was positive overall on here. He had some strong views which were easy to avoid if you didn’t fancy arguing for days, just don’t click on the thread.

    Fred was just a tragic pathetic bellend though really, although looking at STW argue it would appear his online persona is the result of some mental deficiency. Apparently he’s a really great guy in real life though!!

    It’s a lot better now threads don’t get hijacked and derailed into 2 or 3 people arguing that black is white vs white is black

    Yeah, that never happens any more ๐Ÿ˜•

    Yes it does.

    I think to be fair, it happens less. But then I reckon that’s largely because we have less interesting threads- nobody bothers to derail or otherwise fill boring threads with pish.

    Incidentally,

    The mods certainly like to join in, or even start debates here. After what happened to TJ it makes one think twice before engaging with them now.

    I’m not sure if I’m reading too much into this, but it seems to imply “argue with a mod and you’ll get banned.” If that’s what you’re getting at then I’m a little sad that you think this because I genuinely don’t believe it’s the case. I’m a forum user who also happens to be a mod, not a mod who also happens to be a user. I’m not aware of anyone ever abusing power to win an argument (except when it’s funny).

    The vast, vast majority of my posts are voiced as a user and I do try to label posts clearly when I’m speaking in a moderatorial capacity.

    I think you get grief because you are open moderators tbh and some folk seem to want to score points off you, goad you and prod you with the same stick over and over again

    I am not sure how or what they expect to “win” with that approach tbh

    Do they? They’re not very good griefers then, I hadn’t noticed. (-:

    You should see them on a Saturday evening..

    All three on my front lawn, drunk and teary, bickering over which one of them they think I love the most..
    Quite tragic really.. like three needy schoolgirls.. They even started pulling each other’s hair and suchlike the other week, until my neighbour came out and chucked a bucket of water over them..

    They even started pulling each other’s hair

    Strange, I’d only expect that kind of thing from one of them.

    One or 2 have tried yes but it’s so dull and tedious it gets ignored.

    That’s not really going to happen as although I will at times get involved with a debate I’ll wander off before the pointless bitching starts.

    Far as I know, and I could be wrong, Mark doesn’t have enough to pull. On his head, anyroad.

    No you won’t.

    I mod a couple of forums and I’ve had some right nutters… They don’t bother me though, because they’re just tossers on the internet, but then this tolerance of tossers on the internet may be what makes me such a terrible mod.
