Post subject: Nicks needs to lift its gameReply with quote

I haven't posted anything for a few days after being publicly admonished by an unnamed Mod for advising, very politely, some posters to settle down, stop bickering and focus on Collingwood....and I only posted this after becoming sick of reading several pages of personal bickering, which the mods had allowed to go on and on and on....I was basically told to butt out!

In my more than 10 years of Nicks, I've always tried to post about the issues, not the person. I even managed this through the vicious Didak wars. I generally wear my heart on my sleeve, and try to post with passion, but only get personal when it's clear I'm dealing with a troll, and I'm telling them to piss off Nicks. Other than that, I enjoy the posts of the pro and anti Buckley camps equally.

Anyway, the purpose of this post is to ask the Mods (whoever they are) to be more vigilant in putting an end to personal bickering on Nicks, and in future to be a little more respectful to anyone who advises such posters to focus on the issues, not each other.

I strongly agree, as I recall the matter concerned, and it was the ultimate "technical free". Moderating has become much more heavy-handed and touchy lately, and the "no backseat moderating" rule seems to be invoked on the most minor grounds. When the likes of Rob is put off posting, it is surely a signal that policy is not being well used.

As an aside, I tried sending this to the bbmods@magpies.net email box (where I understand complaints are supposed to be posted) and got a "non deliverable" return, below.

Thanks mugwump. I've only ever posted in the General discussion area, and didn't even know there were so many other forums. Dohhhhh!

i get in trouble for trying to raise interesting perspectives for people to debate. Those threads also get changed and deleted. What is there left to do but troll others when you cant even create a mass-debate?????

I didn't have a problem with the comments of yours at all and with a recent inundation of trolls on this board or people attacking Buckley the man or footballer and not the coach it was a warranted observation.

It's ridiculous the reaction you received from a moderator because of it and as someone who is a long time and thoughtful poster on here totally uncalled for and you deserved to be shown more respect.

Thanks swoop42. Much appreciated. To be honest, I'm pretty thick skinned and my first reaction was to let the incredulous remark from the moderator go through to the keeper. The only reason I started this thread was because I felt it was important for the long term health of Nicks, that the behaviour of the moderators themselves be called to account.

Rudey, let it slide mate...

Sometimes we have to cop a backhander from the Mods, myself included.

In their defence, it's not like they are on Gil McLaughlin's wage to do this task.

We are all a bit cranky right now, and it's another long season ahead of us.

You'd actually be better served speaking to the BatMod, and nominating your services as a part time mod, as you are a good leader, peacekeeper, champion of the working class, and general icon of the community.

Don't believe me? Google yourself lol!

Some posters need to pm each other, or get a room, and carry on their childish bickering there.

It's definitely not the same place it used to be.

I suppose Collingwood is in the worst shape it's been in since Nicks has been around.
