If you know you're wrong in this particular point and just want to avoid admitting it I don't mind. I too have my weaknesses. Maybe next time I ask you something you choose to respond.

Wolfgang you have played so many childish games in posts to me - for the benefit only of the watching crowd and your own brand of humour - that such high-sounding allegations from you can be safely dismissed.

You posted with a suggestion as to how you judged I should post - and explained your reasons. Feeling perhaps that you had some right to do this.

I could have responded by telling you that you had no such right and that how and what I choose to post was none of your business, But:

I responded with a suggestion as to how I judged you should post - and I explained my reasons. Feeling that as you felt you had the right to do this to me - that perhaps I had as much right to do this to you.

Hopefully the end result will be that those threads will be as interesting as posters wish to make them.

In time Max will of course let us know, in the meantime it is wrong of you to assume what he feels regarding members only posting either way. As far as I can remember the only clue available is in a post from Joe Offer saying that AT THAT TIME Max was not convinced of the need for this.
It's my guess however, that during the course of the many ensueing rubbish threads started by Guests, along with the nasty comments contained in other threads by them, he may just have changed his mind.
Members only also means that controlling the ingress of undesirable posters is a more exact science.

Perhaps suggestions as the following from the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team - with such drastic potential consequences for all posters - should be placed for open discussion by them - on the music section of our forum - rather than for the benefit of the conspiratorial and 'faithful few' in Snitchers Corner?

Then our forum can be informed what such a change is thought to be the only way to deal with the very same problems that the our current set-up has dealt with for 10 years? Has there been any real change to warrant such a move?

I know, it's a tossup about deleting nasty posts. If we delete such stuff while they're here and watching, they just post it again. I've seen Shambles do it eight times in a row, and then post a dozen messages complaining about the deletions.
If we don't delete the nasty stuff right away, then a dozen Mudcatters respond to it. Seems like a losing battle. I'm beginning to think that the only way we can bring it under control is to have members-only posting in BS, and a way to screen non-member posting in the music section before it becomes visible to the public.

that echolalic language does not fit into a discussion between adults. The last time I could enjoy such a discussion was roughly 45 years ago.

If you know you're wrong in this particular point and just want to avoid admitting it I don't mind. I too have my weaknesses. Maybe next time I ask you something you choose to respond.

If you really think you are right here you have a problem that is not my business to care about.

Another gem from The Mudcat Help and Trouble Forum.

Please delete personal attack

You can see from (some of) our 'moderators' current comments on that thread - that as far as they are concerned - the move to members-only posting is not a question of if - but of when.

When we see this changed being publicly pushed like this - is there any reason for those of us who have always supported Max's policy of the public's access to our forum - to feel that our host's vision is currently 'safe' in the hands of our current 'moderators'?

As far as I can see their best efforts are just to demonstrate how this change is the only solution to the many problems that our forum has had to deal with since its inception.

Perhaps Max would be kind enough to finally inform our forum and our 'moderators' what his intentions are in this regard?

Well Roger if anybody should know what the definition of hijacking a thread is, you should.
It is when you ignore the subject of said thread, and post one of your complaints/attacks, usually a repeat posting from several other threads, in order to bring your pet peeve to the notice of people you think just might have managed to avoid it!


Ah- it is as I thought. Hijacking is an intentionally emotive term to describe a post in a thread saying what you don't want a poster to say - but which no is forcing you to read or respond to and which you can easily ignore.

So by the same logic - thread drift is where a whole gang of posters are encouraged that filling a thread on this subject full of recipes or an any other subject - is great fun.

And hijacking is not of course to be thought as imposed action by some anonymous fellow poster who decides to silently delete an entire thread - complete with every poster's contribution to it?

Joe Offer - Hijacker alert

The above thread has been closed.

Does anyone wish to have a stab at what the difference is between what is referred to as 'thread-drift' and that charged term 'hijacking'?

All they both describe is someone posting to a thread.

Perhaps hi-jacking a thread is a term best reserved for when some anonymous 'moderator' judges and imposes the various actions that move, alter, delete, close threads and prevent posting?

In the sense that these imposed judgements and actions prevent posters fron judging for themselves - and all ordinary posters CAN do is (try to) post - perhaps our 'moderators' are the only true thread hijackers on our forum?

It has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that the main object of your scorn, has stated on this forum that he's not too keen on birthday threads of course, does it?

In a rather small way perhaps it partly does. But it is no secret that on this issue the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team and I will always have very different views.

It was Wolfgang's earlier post on the subject of birthday threads that gave me the idea. He suggested that birthday threads of musical worthies stayed on the music section. I thought this was partly a way of bridging the chasm that now seems to developed and is now firmly enforced by our 'moderators' - between music related subjects and friendly banter. To the detriment of both sections of our forum.

But the bigger picture is that in my view 'moderating' is simply enabling posters to post what they wish to to on our forum. It is not inhibiting posts which may not be to a 'modrators' personal taste.

But what you have again highlighted is the problem caused when 'moderators' are seen by our forum to have personal likes and dislikes. As Ron has stated here, in the following.

IF I were a moderator (and I can guarantee you that I am not - nor would I want to be one), I am not sure if I would make my opinion known in that fashion.

What is a sesh? has now been relegated to the BS.

This is not a judgement of your worth it is just a suggestion how the worth of the birthday threads could be increased.

Then rather that post here only to judge - please by all means place there anything that you judge would make those threads (and any other threads) more interesting and informative. I place only the little information I do to encourage others to post their contributions. I also learn a lot form this and also from surfing to find the information.

That used to be the postive way things used to work on our forum - before posters were encouraged by the negative example given ONLY to pass judgements on the worth of a thread or post or of the worth of the poster and to call them names. And encouraged to simply swoon with horror at the thought of seing the titles of more than one thread at a time.

If it is a thread with little information - why not encourage other posters to provide it?

If a thread is questionably music related - then add it and attempt to keep it there - rather only judge it and than ask that it be relegated to the BS.

These birthday threads were an idea to try and return some of the old spirit of shared fun and joint discovery that makes our forum different to those sites obbsessed only with order.   

To encourage the act of posting - not to find ways that CAN only inhibit the posting of reasonable discussion.

It is very telling what the reaction (from some) to these threads have been.

Shambles,

since you have mentioned the idea to start birthday threads in this thread, may I ask you here to include the respective date in the title. That would make these threads more user friendly. Look how much more informative one of your birthday threads is now with the addition of the date by an unknown volunteer fellow poster for unknown reasons.

This is not a judgement of your worth it is just a suggestion how the worth of the birthday threads could be increased.

I see your point now. I had thought you were accusing me of something by the way your posts read.

IF I were a moderator (and I can guarantee you that I am not - nor would I want to be one), I am not sure if I would make my opinion known in that fashion.

However, lets assume that I am a moderator and that I did express my preference publicly.    Sure, you probably should worry if your opinion was different from mine.   Sure, I could try to make it easier to implement my policy.   And before you ask the question - no, I would not stop posting and no, I the owner would not prevent me from keeping on with business as usual.

What are your options? You can continue to post and hope that others will understand your points (such as what happened with me this week).   However, getting back to the "party" analogy - our opinions do not matter.   The host and his appointed bouncers are running the show.

I don't buy the arguement that it would restrict discussion, most sites that I visit have similar arrangements and it works quite well.

Ron I like the way d's status has elevated to D. Good move.

I think it is time the pitbulls were muzzled for everyones well being and the doors were opened to D.

I don't for one minute believe that the party host decided to restrict D. I believe over zealous pitbulls enjoy the sport, suggested the move (or not) and watch with tongues lolling and spittle drooling on the sidelines.

The only change is the pitbulls are now being watched very carefully and the viewing ain't pretty.

"But would you not agree, Ron, that it is somwhat unusual to have or allow one geust to be placed under special conditions for not being a problem? "

Not at all unusual.   The guest may be put off by the request, but as host is is my call. If I have a guest that I know drinks too much, I would tell them to stay away from the beer. If there is a guest who has a habit of attending parties and then eating all the pigs in a blanket, I might tell that person that they are off limits just to him or her.

Is it fair? It doesn't really matter what is fair since it is my house and my party. If I want the rest of the guests to have an opportunity to snack, I might restrict one person. You might not like me as a host, but that is something I have to live with. It is my responsibility and my decision.   If you don't like it, you don't attend.

"d is not barred from participating in all the party rooms, merely from spreading gloom and despondency there, by sowing disaffection, and repeating complaints already voiced in other rooms."

How is that accomplished?   Has D been told they can't enter certain rooms and to stay away from the shrimp bowl?

If D has been given restrictions, then everyone would expect D to honor them. If D continues to fight them, then it is up to the host to make a decision - and the rest of the party goers to abide by it.

IF the hosts decides D needs to leave, he should call him or her a cab.

IF D is allowed to stay, with restrictions, then everyone should shut up and allow him or her to particpate as the host allows.

IF D is allowed to stay with no restricitons, then the remaining guests need to assess whether they want to stay and follow the rules that host allows.
