The pettiness of the dispute hyteckit was attempting to start with Railhead is only magnified by the creation of this even pettier thread.

not to mention that it should have a poll option so that I can vote to keep vmarks and every other mod we have here who I think all do a great job.

That's exactly what I did, continue the argument back in the pol/war lounge. It's suddenly wrong to link to outside the pol/war lounge to point out someone's hypocrisy? I took it back to the pol/war lounge and post a link showing RAILhead's hypocrisy on oversight and regulations.

It's a discussion about oversight. Why does the moderator need to be involved? That's not what the moderators are for.

I'll use the report button from now on. I'll act like those petty conservatives who don't have thick skin and report every post where I think my feelings have been hurt.

Hmm.. maybe it's not a bug, since the Pol/War Lounge is a subset of the Lounge. Nevermind.

Hey, if I get banned by vmarks for calling Captain Obvious whiny, how many other guys here should be banned, by calling me petty and loony. I just want to same standards apply to everyone else.

Anyway, enough of this thread. I'll use the report button from now on. However, if it goes to vmarks, it's probably pointless.

That's great. You said you wanted to be a mod? You must be the perfect replacement for vmark.

This sort of illustrates why you may run into trouble. sean didn't call hytechit "whiney." He said not to whine about something. Instead of being an attack, it was advice. Of course, he only said this once, and didn't get rude about it either, both of which kept it advice instead of something else. So maybe you could consider what is irritating versus rude and obnoxious in his post and avoid getting into trouble by letting yourself get caught up in an argument and go too far.

Looks like this thread has been successfully derailroaded, time to put it out of its misery.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.
