@ Everyone Concerned
to speak for myself personally, i have not singled out Penelopip, and I KNOW most of this post relates to me alone if not a few others, and... that's ok. i don't take it personally, I understand
but so that it's clear, let me say this
What i accused penelopip of was based on a sequence of factual events and my belief that she was executing the actions on her post (Deletions and flags and what not) at her own discretion.
I have since spoken to (i think) Pipstradamus, who has told me ... briefly stated, that before she takes action or any mod does, they apparently have meetings over it and it's a joint decision
so.. that then, changes my perception on things
it also then leads me to question , Why the sudden change , but anyway.... IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER,
at the end of the day, the mods will do what they think is in the best interest of their company
we are the guests on this site
and i accept that the mods have to deal with a bunch of whinging idiots on a daily basis so much so that the crap they have to deal with is probably oozing out of their eyeballs... and i can respect that
i have also come to understand that what penelopip did in the past was really more about bad timing.. wrong place, wrong time, sort of thing, as opposed to intentional actions
this in turn has made me rethink what occurred
so.. THIS IS MY PERSONAL POSITION ON PENELOPIP
i don't hold any ill will towards her, but what i believed she did at that time, i just wanted to her to recognize it, because (without mentioning the members name so as to respect their wishes) i think it's sad when people who contribute to the site leave as a result of a mod being unfair, which i believed was the case at that time
but like i said, things have been clarified since.
penelopip is not without fault, but it also is clear that EVERYTHING i believed was also not as it appeared to be at that time.
life is like this sometimes, things are not always as they seem .
but yes she is new and we will give her the time of day (at least i will)
as for this comment
that's fine, but changing a name would not modify her traits and her style of moderation,
it would be obvious, even if we didn't realize it was her, we would have another that we would accuse of the same thing
i just wanted to say that i disagree that if the name is changed we would not pick up on it.
the only way it would be possible to pull that off is
if the name was changed and the problem that was occurring was rectified,... then.. YES IT PROBABLY WOULD GO UNNOTICED.
anyway,i just wanted my position clearly understood towards penelopip,
i know she already knows this as we have PM'd
but i thought it would be useful and informative that all of you understood this as well
I have nothing against penelopip
and what occurred back there...WE HAVE SORTED OUT
penelopip since then , has deleted a lot of posts i have been on, Mainly due to other scammers violating rules , but not me violating them, but i did converse with them so my comments were deleted
do i care..... No, not in the slightest...I completely understand
so.. ME AND PENELOPIP ARE COOL (as it stands now) we have an understanding
now beyond that, if anything is still outsanding between penelopip and another member, I personally have no part in that. I'm responsible for my own words and actions towards mods.. that's it.
BUT I HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE... SERIOUSLY
@Pipstradamus Take a Bow Mate
I mean , guys... seriously.. let's consider how much crap the mods have to deal with (and i know, i've had to lead teams in the past in various roles)
Now imagine , how many members there are
How many whingers
how many time wasters
how many scammers
how much BS they have to put up with
NOW... PIPSTRADAMUS has been ever so patient.... i gotta admit that
and let's be honest, back in like November when he didn't know me too well. there we times when i was talking to him and he bit my head off a little (So to speak)
but, IT'S COOL
i ignored it and didn't make thing out of it and i asked for understanding, and HE GAVE IT
HE IS A REALLY INTELLIGENT AND PATIENT GUY
NOT MANY PEOPLE CAN DO WHAT HE DOES (in my opinion)
so... for that HE HAS MY RESPECT and appreciation
i also wanted to say that, because he doesn't have to put up with what he puts up with.. YET HE DOES
and i know he won't always receive a resolution that he wants
but, i can assure you when he deals with me.. he certainly will
i respect people that respect me back and i am willing to do whatever is necessary to find a solution IF THE OTHER PERSON IS WILLING TO DO THE SAME
PIPSTRADAMUS IS ONE OF THOSE GUYS THAT IS WILLING TO DO THE SAME
he's a good bloke
that's all i have to say here
sorry for the long post
