Geez, what are you doing??? Baiting Mick and the rest of JHAP stable of personalities to enter into the fray on this topic??? Don't we get enough food for thought from him alone without inviting the rest of the "gang"??? \:D \:D \:D

Who needs moderators here when all you have to do is wait a few posts, and the thread gets so hijacked it not even close to the offending topic?

Yeah! \:\/

I know of a website where there is virtually no moderation. It's a lot of fun if you like the wild wild west complete with death threats. \:o

Hijackers would quickly run roughshod over this place in a heartbeat. Next thing you know, the sarsaparilla would be a flowing, and the rubber band guns would be a shootin. Not to mention a few wet towel snaps, even though you are not wet, and those darn little paper footballs. I just want to see the medical reports for the last person who launched a wet one at me.

With stealth, and we all contribute, we can defeat the Moderators(((Loud Reverberating Thunderous Sound))), on second thought, Debauchery might not be the best solution.

Catch any fish lately!

I know we're all joking around, but in reference to the site I was speaking of it's another industry I am involved with. It's absolutely appalling what went on there when the owner and mods looked the other way. One of the mods was even part of the bad behavior.

When people accuse you of being a registered sex offender on the Internet for no reason other than meanness, (yes it happened to me), or in the case of another poster someone threatened to come to his house and shoot him, it's time to find another website. The final straw for me was I had posts removed from the fish category and placed in the political category for no reason.

I've been told the open forum where politics and things unrelated to taxidermy has been moved to a members only section now. Pretty sad when that was the owner's response to the garbage that went on, and made the industry look bad as a whole to the general public. It would have been so much better to nip the bad things said in the bud early on.

Trust me good moderation and preventing threads from getting out of hand in the first place is the best thing one can do on a website! I've been guilty of being a little ornery but I think I've wised up in my old age. (for the most part)

I've now involved in another website for that industry, which I partially funded and I'm a moderator. It's such breath of fresh air vs. the other site.

the thing that drives me crazy on some sites is when the topic just skews off out into left field.
I know of a fish forum where even some of the moderators are in on the action.
And the levity; it's just uncalled for. I mean, we're trying to talk some serious sh....stuff and somebody wants to practive their standup routine.

Bluegills and horses can't be in the bar at the same time. It's just common sense. \:\/

The horse says to the bartender - who do you think you are - Mr. Ed ...

A priest, a rabbi, and a dwarf walk into a bar in the company of a donkey, rabbit, and a peacock. The bartender looks up and says "What is this, some kind of joke?" \:D

Yolkie lurks on the forum about 12 hours each day just waiting to talk smack about green sunfish.

I'm sorry, but this is a very sad commentary about his existence. \:\(

I resent that remark, especially coming from a moderator. I lurk around here waiting to talk smack about green sunfish for at least 16 hours each day, and to have my efforts underestimated and underappreciated to such an extent really hurts.

Green sunfish are absolutely, undeniably, without question, the best, coolest, awesomest fish in the entire known galaxy. And I mean that with all due insincerity.
