A General Feedback thread

sorry for the double post. As a more general comment. I'm not sure why the moderators should be expected to moderate opinions. Look, I read many, many posts and opinions here that I just dislike, on a molcular level. They aren't breaking any politics forum rules, but, imho, probably break rules t

A General Feedback thread

Wow. You have a huge issue with this. As stated before you posted this. 1. I didn't disappear. my whereabouts was stated and known. 2. My being away in no way contributed to the running of the forum. I didn't get any PMs that went unanswered, I wasn't taking a space from someone else. 3. I don't

without responding to anyones posts directly I see some huge assumptions are being made. I would say that 1. just because I didn't log in and ban someone doesn't mean I didn't read the forum for 6 months. I have an email account that gives me a summary of reported posts and I skim regularly skim o

While this is true, it hasn't been an issue. As an aside, I still get plenty of PMs asking how to get access to soccer :(:confused

I gave an explanation in the appropriate place. The original post here, that I responded to was a cross post anyway. While I understand the perceived issue on moderation, I don't think that my presence in anyway inhibited the actions or appointment of other mods as anyone in that decision making

A General Feedback thread

I spent 6 months on a doctors without borders placement. They didn't have boards.ie browsing level internet where I was. However, I told the mods/admins that I was talking to that I was going. Kinda surprised about this myself. Maybe they're scared that the internet would collapse if I wasn't a mod

Fine Gael are little better

Interesting AP article about FF and FG politicians that has been circulated to some major broadsheets (Telegraph and FT so far) highlights the fact that many of the TDs are from non professional political backgrounds (ie. former schoolteachers, lawyers, MD's etc) or "inherited" seats from family.

Look, I closed the initial thread and the one on Hannafin (which I admit I was late coming to, but that's time zones and a busy life for you). I made a moderation call which is outlined in the closing post. Quite simply, the actions of a a private citizen are not open for dissection on politics b

Politics: Double standards

To clarify, ISAWs warning and the reason for locking the Hanafin thread are not related. The Hanafin thread in question was locked because it really wasn't a politics-standard thread (reasoning in my closing post), much like the original thread by ISAW

How about a colour code option?

Why color code? Why not just take each post on the merit of content? Just because a person has a leaning in their world view, doesn't mean that they are incapable of making a valid point. Read posts and make up your own mind*. (this should really be something applied to all of boards.)

Mary Hanafins mother claims 62k

What the relative of some politician does has no bearing on the politician unless the relative is acting on instructions of the politicians. As we have no evidence that this is the case, I don't see a reason for this thread. The mother of Mary Hanaffin is entitled to pursue legal compensation in th

Politics: Double standards b y moderators??

No ISAW, I didn't refuse to discuss it, I refused to enter a game of semantics and pedantry on the nature of soapboxing when you asked for a definition. You have also posted in the wrong place, If you have a problem, the place is the dispute resolution process. The cynical part of me thinks you p

There is no new code. The rule you fell victim to and are debating here has been in place and enforced since March 2009
