    And that is exactly why that is a bold statement to make.

    What I typed stated he was not guilty of bullying the quieter, more refined folk and I meant it. As to what transpired twixt RW and yourself I have not an inkling.

    Interesting. Even in the absence of almost everyone, the fight and arguments continue.

    He is a lightning rod as many seem jealous of his being made a moderator and jump at any chance to behave as an over-reacting soccer player to draw attention and elicit a reaction. Friendship aside, I would defend the man regardless for this is how I honestly see the goings on. This is how the crew got the family of Anna-noyance to pack up and leave. One slip of the tongue, a French individual using an English word in the wrong context and she and her family were branded as liars. This by the way despite the fact name-calling is not supposed to be tolerated by those owning the board.

    Rather than let things die, each and every time they posted, the attacks continued. No one seemed to notice nor care as it was allowed to go on ad nauseam. I wonder who gets applause for the continuance? I can, if you wish carry on but I believe you get my side of the crap going on.

    Why is it that you never have any real squabbles with anybody?

    There were/are several moderators on here, but if I understand you correctly there is only one many seem jealous about? Don't you wonder why that would be happening?

    Me and RWGR are not exactly known to be the best of friends either, but that has never caused any issue on here. Makes you wonder.

    It could be that you don't throw out passive aggressive posts every 5 minutes followed by 3 smiley faces or start threads that you know will get off track quickly but do it anyway and then cry about it when it does.

    It helps to have a friend like Anapeg to assure you that you're the one being victimized even when the true intentions of a certain individual are punching you in the face. I get it though, that's what friends are for and I accept it.

    If all are of the same mindset, why bring him back? If you and the other moderators think Barry to be the problem, are you not at fault for offering the position a second time? I realise my questions cannot be answered in an open forum BUT, they are food for thought. It seemed to me when the position was rescinded the *****ing and chewing continued without change, or am I being, once again, myopic?

    Of course it continued. He was still the same buffoon as before the rescinding but now when he started crap, he couldn't ban anyone and send multiple taunting PM's which was causing more problems.

    FYI, I was never consulted on any such matters and never had any say/input. I honestly have no idea why these things happen the way they happen.
