Red face miffedmax used to be fun ...

... and then he became a mod and turned into a thread closing machine
I know this one will get closed in no time but I wanted to share it. I have a feeling more and more threads in GM are being closed/removed/merged/deleted since he became a mod than before?

He seems pretty moderate to me.

Certain posters used to bitch about the (also greatly respected and admired) griffin the same way, so I'd say that Max is "in good company".

Re: miffedmax used to be fun ...

You call any of that bunch of sicko E.D. fans fun? Really? I merely suggested that that woman trim (yes, TRIM) her bangs, and that lot found the address to my house, and I received boxes of blonde babydoll hair in the mail until I issued a formal apology.

"Miffemax" and "fun" don't belong in the same sentence, boo.

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

And I was never even indicted. In fact, the Sanford police cleared me immediately.

In all seriousness, one of the reasons new mods were added to GM was there was a sense it had become something of a zoo.

If you feel a thread has been moved or closed unjustly, you can always contact me or any other mod by PM. We will be happy to discuss it with you. I have been known to re-open threads because a poster made a good case.

Generally, though, when I close a thread I try to leave a message about why I did it. Yeah, sometimes I'm snarky because my patience has been tried, but I do try. And I always let you know I closed it so you know who to contact.

But really, we were actually losing members due to what a mess GM had become.

He is moderate and unbiased. At least, he doesn't form cliques and trolls posters he doesn't like. (Not talking about anyone here).

Yep. I rarely go into GM now unless I am super bored and/or it's 4am.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Re: miffedmax used to be fun ...

I don't think is that big of a deal, when you're in a higher position u gotta be more responsible, without him GM would be much bigger of a mess.

Agree I rarely even went in when I was a mod for that area, the bitchiness, moaning, and overall lunatic behavior just annoyed me probably why I ended up getting the sack

Re: miffedmax used to be fun ...

Agreed, Max is doing a good job. Every thread in GM is either about how someone is a mug, how a player is ugly, or how a player has bad fashion sense. It's so frustrating.

Where are the threads actually analyzing results, stats, technique etc? It's sad really what GM has become (although to be fair it was never that great to begin with).

Why discuss this publicly? IMHO, this sounds like a PM that should've remained a PM.

Not everyone can stay fun AND be a Mod, like me.

Max always has been/always will be cool, even when he eventually becomes an Admin.
