Ok, please elaborate on how you are being stifled/oppressed.

We all want to know.

At the risk of seeing how quickly this thread is locked or deleted, here goes...

There's a clique that's grown within the BOC:
(1) post anything the slightest about/against a clique member or topic, you get warned or banned, your post gets deleted,
(2) start a thread that may oppose the clique, your thread gets locked. No opportunity to let it set its own course (Silly me - of course, there is only one course)
(3) clique threads, regardless of topic or whatever? Unabated - let it run regardless of how off topic or on topic it is.
(4) clique posts, well if they do happen to go over the line, they'll make 'em disappear. No need for them to be seen in a bad light

Yes, there's an evident bias going on in here.
The level of "impartiality" that was once here (Strat) is long gone.
Its Our way or the highway...

My bottom line here?
- you're losing people (members)
- they're losing interest in something that has lost its way
- unless something changes, the end result is clear

I know - a controversial post. But it is what it is.
How long will it take for the clique to defend the clique?

BTW, what happened to PugetMike's post?

What clique? What topic areas? I must be right in the midst of this because I'm blind to any of it. If you feel change is in order, you'll have to be a whole lot less cryptic.

BTW, I agree that Strat is an impartial and fair moderator. Are you suggesting he's the only one?

Cosmo - I deleted my post.
I figure dont know know you and dont read your posts, and probably have no idea what you are chafing about.

If you want, I can repost the monty python "help I'm being repressed video".

I am really hoping this wont turn into another "I dont like the way recent topics works" thread.

This is just a freaking forum on the dang Internet for Gods sake! If you don't like how it's run then leave! Take your wadded up panties, hit the Infomation highway, and go find a forum that will call you king. I have managed to stay here for years with only one, count em, one PM from a mod, and I knew when I posted I was on thin ice. The Mods here do a freaking great job of keeping our stupid a$$'$ in line, I can't give them enough kudos! So off my soap box for now have a nice day.

Bob, (Cosmo777) if you have a bone to pick with me as moderator of The Dock Walk, feel free to send it in a PM. BOC policy dictates that we don't discuss moderator issues or decisions on the public forum. BTW, Strat is still a moderator/administrator, so nothing has changed there. I've only been a mod for a few months, and that came about because I had issues with a former mod. But I didn't just complain, I volunteered my services if and when requested, you know, the old "put up or shut up" saying. Yes, I had a problem, but I also offered a solution. So once again, if you have an issue with me as a mod, step up and send me a PM. And no, this thread won't be deleted or locked at this point, but I am moving it to the "FAQ Club Website" forum where it belongs. :)

Suggestion, click the report button on this or any other post. Every mod and the admin gets that report and what comments you made in that report

Please, in any pm you send to any mod. put a link to what post, topic, you have a complaint about.. Copy and paste i find is the easiest.

Strat. is still alive, posting as always, the reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated.

If you have a problem with me as a poster or a mod. just pm me. I will make it my business to respond.

Any mod or poster you can send a pm to.

I don't know about losing members we are growing every day the member count is way up.

Yup, I'm still around. I no longer watch the front or back doors, but I do keep an eye on the fire exit to the alley behind the Chinese restaurant.

And I am 100% unaware of any untouchable "clique". I've even been warned by PugetMike recently. Oh, the indignity! :D
