Thread: Closed Threads & Deleted Posts : AGAIN !

    Angry Closed Threads & Deleted Posts : AGAIN !

    For a certain time, could I even declare, since too long, the contents of several `posts' and the attitude of certain writers leave a dark mark on the board. It is a pity in my case that it is not possible any more to emit opinion under pretext that any comments could prove to be inappropriate held “certain” positions I am, could I state many. Yes I am in the medium, yes I did SPing, yes I am a woman and yes I make management in the industry. You have one or more problem (S) with that? If my comments disturb the people concerned well they can certainly answer me. I understand it may be to help me, but I don’t find it very helpful lately. I believe that all the opinions stated to date were very objective and for submission to conveying some information concerning the field. But anyhow, these still my own opinions I guess.

    But this time, I believe that there is explanation to apply concerning certain last events. You speak to avoid run it from schoolyard, well it is already too late for that. That has been already more than 6 months that generally the watchword concerning this forum is: It is full with idiots who says tones of stupidities where as it waste of time to be registered there. Several subjects of very appreciable discussion are dawning and they always finish with the same frustrated writers who may not be in their place. As said, if you have problems with alcohol, perhaps should you avoid the bars… the message is it rather clear!?

    The cherry on the top… have should use the button “to be unaware of”…! Really! Well I excuse myself but this option does not apply to none registered people and the contents of the forum are certainly not what there is inviting more! If the direction taken by these changes of management is intentional, perhaps it would be more adapted to only found a section “Junk for registered members! ”

    Cheers !

    Dorothy,

    Your post does not make much sense. I suspect that you wrote it in French, then ran it through babelfish or some other translater. It would be better to just submit it in French.

    Yes chef, you're right on this.
    It was explaned better yesterday, but the post was deleted, possibly cause it wasn't much on the topic anymore.

    Globaly, it says that no matter my implication into the business, those aren't good reasons why I have some of my posts deleted.

    Then, this board was more informative before, regarding all the comments received in the past VS. what it became since a few months, also regarding not only my personal observations, but from many compiled opinions.

    Does it sounds better?

    Dorothy,

    None of your posts were deleted. If you look at the thread carefully, and mainly my last post in the thread, you will see I moved some of the posts in a different thread. Your post is right here.

    When a lot of nonsense gets posted, there are going to be deleted posts and threads. The trend I have seen is more and more nonsense getting posted and less and less reviews. I don't blame the Mods for this, I blame the posters of the nonsense who are not adding anything to the Board.

    The Board should be treated as a receptacle of information for all members. If you are going to post something informative that will benefit members, then post. If you are not posting something that is informative and/or it is not benefitting the members, then don't post. This Board lately reminds me of Canbest towards the end, an unmoderated cesspool of garbage. The Mods on this Board, much to their chagrin, are besieged and beleaguered with the same kind of situation. I kind of feel sorry for them and am glad I never took that thankless job. It's almost like being a policeman in Iraq.

    As requested...

    Depuis un certain temps, pourrais-je même déclarer, depuis trop longtemps, le contenu de plusieurs « posts » et l’attitude de certains rédacteurs laissent a désirer. Il est dommage dans mon cas qu’il me soit difficile d’émettre des opinions et j’en ai assez que mes commentaires soient effacés sans aucune explication autre que celle que je sois dans une position dite « inappropriée ». Oui je suis dans le milieu, oui j’ai escorté, oui je suis une femme et oui je fais de la gestion dans l’industrie. Vous avez un ou plusieurs problème (s) avec ça? Si mes commentaires dérangent, bien les personnes concernées peuvent certainement me répondre.

    Je crois que toutes les opinions émises a ce jour ont été que très objectives et a l’intention de véhiculer des informations vraisemblables concernant le domaine. Mais cette fois, je crois qu’il y a explication a appliquer concernant certains derniers événements.

    Vous parlez d’éviter la cours d’école, bien il est déjà trop tard pour cela. Cela fait déjà plus de 6 mois que généralement le mot d’ordre concernant ce forum est : C’est plein de cons qui disent que des conneries alors qu’elle perte de temps de s’y inscrire.

    Plusieurs sujet de discussion très appréciables font jour et ils finissent toujours avec les même rédacteurs frustrés qui ne sont pas a leur place. Comme ont dit, si tu as des problèmes avec l’alcool, peut-être devrais-tu éviter les bars…le message est-il assez clair!?

    La cerise sur le sundae… ont devrait utiliser le bouton « ignorer » … ! Vraiment ! Bien je m’excuse mais cette option ne s’applique pas aux non-enregistrés et le contenu du forum n’est certainement pas ce qu’il y a des plus invitant!

    Si la direction prise par ces changements de gestion est intentionnelle, peut-être serait-il plus approprié d’instaurer une section « Junk pour inscrit seulement ! »

    Santé !

    Maybe the solution will be to become very adamant and purge everything that sounds like a chat room conversation (one liners back and forth), subtle confrontational baits, useless threads, etc. Members will then start whining about censorship and/or dictatorship, but we may soon have no choice.

    This is an escort review board after all, not everyone's blog spot.

    So why the different sections? Sounds too one dimensional. A lot of info can be digested from the lounge. How many women could participate in only escort review? I think the board is fine the way it is, except vacations should be shorter.

    Dorothy,

    Thanks for your opinion. Since most members can read English but not necessarily French, I'll reply in French.

    There has not been any official change of direction, but as EB suggested, maybe more of a situation where Mods are overwhelmed by the number of posts/threads that need to be moderated. We unfortunately can't read all threads and react as timely as we sometime should, and we also can't read everything. Furthermore, with full time jobs, family and/or social activities, hobbying , Mods are not on the board 24x7.

    Possible solutions:
    - Add new Mods to help cover all threads, faster.
    - Tighten existing rules to give Mods more ground to take decisions.
    - Ban members more quickly to reduce the number of bad posts.
    - All of the above?

    Comments are welcomed.

    Warn the offending member and ban quickly if the warning is not heeded. Hand out bans for posting nonsense, or create a frivolous post section and deposit nonsense in that section as on the other Board.

    As far as tightening existing rules, I have been on other Boards recently where I made constructive posts that were moderated and deleted and my criticism of the TBD Connecticut Mod who foolishly and inaccurately called me a "first time poster" without even doing a search was deleted. Of course unlike you guys the TBD Mods are actually looking for things to do because there is no hobbyist traffic on that Board any more. A lot of people here don't realize that the Moderation here and on the other Montreal Board are light as compared to other similar Boards in other jurisdictions.

    More frequent but shorter bans.

    If the rules were tightened to, say, ban banter, it would take away the fun of participating, and my participation would drop significantly. I do realize that we are supposed to cover reviews only (serious business), but we should be allowed to have some fun. I know of at least one other smartass on this board whose participation would deecrease if banter were banned.

    We already have enough who want to control others. Just take care of controlling yourself, and if everyone does the same we're all good. If not, we'll do our job.

    Mod 7,

    Can you validate, in terms of statistics if possible, my impression that what I would call "board renegades" (loosely defined as members who are prominently controversial and/or confrontational and/or sarcastic and/or pains in the neck, etc...) are often those who generate more threads views, more replies and, consequently, more business?
