If you think I'm bad . . .

Hi ForumMates,

I just joined another forum that deals with a specific topic.  For those of you who think that my moderation is sometimes too fussy and directive, I thought I would share one of their TOS points with you.  The |||| replaces the actual name of the forum. 

Quote from: |||| Forum
"I am leaving ADD Forums" threads:
* It is the policy of ||||Forums to disallow threads that are purely to announce that you are 'leaving the site' for any reason. Posts of this nature will result in the following action: 1) The post will be removed from general view. 2) Your membership will be suspended without notice. 3) If you wish to have your membership reinstated then you may contact an Administrator or Moderator to request this. If you find it necessary to 'leave' |||| Forums for any reason - or just take a break from the site - then you are welcome to notify your |||| Forums friends via personal Private Message.


I think, translated into plain English, this means is "Do not announce your departure or "retirement" from the forum, just go . . . and don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out!"

To be perfectly honest, this kind of reflects my sentiments about people who announce--usually in high duegon--they are "retiring" from the forum.  However, I would never dream of making it a rule and saying you cannot post such a message (even though it annoys me) and that if you do, it will be deleted.

I find that often or even generally forum TOS are incredibly fussy!

There was another fourm where I thought I would do the courteous thing and wrote to Amin to ask if he minded if I talked about the Chiang Mai forum on his forum.  He wrote back and said "No!" because he noticed that on the Chiang Mai Forum we linked to ThaiVisa.com occasionally . . . And because ThaiVisa is was so fussy and difficult--instantly pounces and deletes any references to any other forums--he would not allow any references to any forums that reference ThaiVisa!

Geeze!  I am surrounded by a wordl of kindergarten children!!!   roll

Oh, and have a nice day!  And consider yourselves lucky to be HERE . . . Hehehe . . .

Thank you for your post.

Welcome! Sir, you  are free to participate or not, stay or leave. Up to you, lah!  It's all good as long as you respect TOS. 

I did not identify you nor your forum in any way in my comments.  My comments were intended to be  illustrative and not meant to be an attack on your or your forum in any way.  It is a pity that you took them personally, and chose to respond in a hostile way,  especially when I added a smiley roll clearly indicating that it was a jest.  However, I stand by my "kindergarten" statement. 

There is a lot I could criticize and complain about TV.  However, I don't see myself in competition with them.  It's a good thing too, as they are the big dog in the junk yard, and one would have to command  lot more resources  than I to presume to compete with them. Besides, I would never want to dish up the crass commercialism and vulgar "in your face" style.  TV has its  value, and they can do things and provide services that we cannot.  I don't mind giving the devil his due.  If they won't let anyone link to or mention other forums, shame on them!  However, I am not going to be childish and respond tit-for-tat.
