I've read this thread - and the other one and I just don't believe what I'm reading! 

There's been a lot of nonsense on the forum over the years but this takes the biscuit! 

There are other fora where there are clearly identified moderators - and they moderate to the nth degree, ensuring that posters follow the clear guidelines for posting. They also shift posts from one thread to another if it's more appropriate.

 

I tried making this point previously. The place is a mess; we don't just need moderators for getting rid of spam. Everything needs keeping tidy, eg. multiple threads on exactly the same subject, time after time. I'm sure this contributes to the search option being close to useless. The best forum I go on has some massive debates; everyone knows the score and users are often given cool off weeks/months from the mods. What are people really worried about, it's as if the people complaining have never used a public forum before....give your heads a shake.

Blimey Mr Boat - just look at the kick off aboout deleting Spam. 

Imagine if someone were given the power to cull the 4987 threads on "can i race with an ipod" and the 2431 threads on "can my heart go higher than my max ?"

 

The world would surely end.

Mr Boat, are you Stevie G under another name? I'm sure he said exactly the same thing, and the photos are similar. worried about being cazzed?

cougie: you're forgetting the 'best running jacket' every time it rains thread(s).

LtP: ;0) sorry if I haven't read all the thread properly; I'm not SG but looks like we're thinking along the same lines.

Cool off weeks/months for what? Having massive debates or are they confusing it with masturbates?

Anyway, the same questions are going to get asked here, it's a running forum and there are only so many topics on running, I don't see the harm of multiple threads, if people just want a reference library, they can go read a book. Debates on the same subject can turn into completely different conversations depending on who's around at the time.

Forgot my smilie after that first line, here it is.

I'm glad I keep to one or two threads, I seem to have missed the arguments & disagreements which suits me just fine

I only know Meldy out of the new prefects, & she has given me some tip top advice over the few years I've been running & been on here.....and she's never got annoyed at me wittering and mithering  Although she did bully me into doing a marathon......

But as I've started training for my 4th I guess I'd better drop that !!

Mr B - As a Liverpool fan who's seen your running thread over there, I think I know which forum you're talking about. The user mods there have god like powers but keep the place useable, porn free and free from litigation.

In comparison this change seems minuscule.

I've always viewed Meldy as a somewhat authoratitive grandmotherly type figure, I think she'll do a great job

If the stiletto heel hits his motor cortex, it might speed him up a bit

It would need more than a shoe to speed me up

I will be in disguise at the Outlaw, for my own protection.

The agents and the number of Madonna style close protection officers will make you stand out !!

Holgs, you need to write something dirty to get to the top of the Amazon bestseller list now. And I'm not talking about your bike
