View Full Version : Hey guys, it's "Lord of the Flies" time, moderators are gone!

For the last two hours, I've asked the moderators 5 times to delete a crude post in the "Pierce as GOAT" thread that erroneously quotes me but which was actually made by another poster. No response, no deletion after repeated alerts.

Guess it's a 'Lord of the Flies' moment, no supervisors on duty. Looks like for the moment we make our own rules, so apparently anything goes. Sad but true.

So what do we do now? Do we elect someone as our leader? :confused:

They have lives too, you know.

Actually, after posting this thread, the malicious post was suddenly --- after 2 hours --- removed.

Our little experiment in feral self-government has been foiled! Quel dommage.

Just like people on life support machines, eh?

I can't believe you're getting so upset over something so small :lol:

We don't have moderators around the clock. If you report something, they get emailed, and somebody will come when he/she can. There is no life or death on internet forums.

Smallness is in the eye of the beholder. Crude and malicious mis-attribution may be small to you but ...

Actually it wasn't a big deal until there was no response from any moderator. Kind of like being on an automated consumer service phone line that redirects to nowhere in never ending loops. Small ... but ever so aggravating.

Ok, so there's an 4-8 hour interval when 'Lord of the Flies' rules prevail. Good to know. :eek:
