Wow, you really think we'd appointment a madman like that? You make it sound like he's a possible Sinfinity. Not only is that highly unlikely, but he's only a mod. If for some bizarre reason he flipped, an admin would be more than able to undo it, and punish such an egregious act.

You may not know him, but we do, and that's...kinda paranoid. He's not Vossler/Q/Sinfinity

I think staff didn't appoint Tennyo because she was a woman and they're a group of sexist cowboys on a power trip.

That post had nothing to do with you. Quit antagonizing and speaking of her ego. This thread's been off topic enough as is.

See, it's this cutting perception of yours that keeps you out of staff Alex. You know too much.

A lot of posts have nothing to do with anyone, but you don't see admin attention brought directly to those posts.

I thought respect of other members was a requirement, but it seems that if you make a few of the right people laugh, you can show disrespect to whomever you want.
Really now, you're expecting a staff whose most active admin flames in virtually every fifth post he makes to enforce no-flaming rules?

It's because they don't like you, it means they'll be on your back more.

Mako's text is now bold. Shit just got real.

So don't take anything personally, okay? I certainly never did when you reacted to me. TBH I think you're a pretty good member here and I never really had a problem with you.

So can we call a truce before you leave? I don't want you to leave hating me or anything.
Don't give yourself too much credit love. You're getting defensive over an internet forum; there weren't even any witty quips in your posts. Mate, you're not legendary enough to be a bitch.

Man up and step up to the plate, watching you brown nose the staff is about as appealing as ice fishing in a 40 year old hooker's fanny.

Also, I would like to wholeheartedly commend Road for his opposition. love love.

Really i'm not totally informed on what are the qualifications for a good mod, I just figured someone who is one a good amount of time, is good at dealing with bullshit drama and making decisions, has decent enough posts and understands what the forum is ever about. Though i'm not on staff so I don't know why they chose SoS, but i'm sure there is some good enough reason that i probably missed while skimming.

They appoint people like you, rite?

But I don't actually think he'd suddenly ban people, I just don't know how fair he is in arguments and giving credit to both sides.

From past experience and encounters, he's more than fair, and if there's a problem that's what the rest of staff is for.
