Will someone from WOS please explain why it feels its readers should be subjected to the disgusting venom that comes from our lovely guest poster normad? Why are there no moderators, why is his ip not banned, why is the ideal of non-registration so protected that hate-filled outbursts are allowed all over the board during night time and weekends?



Words of normad: edited by WOS, i presume. thank you. i only included them here to show just how sickening his language was.


He used to call me ó Blue Roses.

I agree, WOS needs to appoint a number of moderators ASAP and I know that a bunch of us have already volunteered, myself included. I donít know what is taking them so long to decide on this, I know I gave them the link to the Shakespeare group that Iím moderating if they wanted to check my credentials, and no, I donít think that Iím in any way perfect (I can be irritable at times) but as a seasoned moderator, working on a basic ďlive and let liveĒ principle but with a zero tolerance when it comes to spam, abuse, commercial ads and porn I feel that Iím up to the task. WOS admins, if youíre reading this, please, PLEASE get some moderators approved amongst us users so that we can get rid of these problems.

Well said Josh.  On the big issues I am in full agreement with you. And at the risk of jeopardising my own membership of this board, leaving the board open with no moderators at all, even after the images of last week is utterly irresponsible.  I appreciate that WOS staff are busy but there are people like Matthew who know the software and could moderate immediately so there really is no excuse for allowing this homophobic diatribe to continue to be published.  Either get a mod or close the board out of hours.

You're so right Skylight, WOS please get your act together on this ASAP. Thanks!

Ahh, the irony that as I read this thread, directly above is a "Sexy live webcams!" spam post.

Moderators.

NOW.  

No messing about.

Even reallyuseful.com with their complete lack of a clue on how to use the internet know that forums require volunteer mods!

It's too bad that you're right Skylight, as WOS will probably not be able to get rid of these terrible spamming porn trolls until they come into the office on Monday morning, yet another reason why we desperately need user moderators. WOS, please hurry up and appoint at least SOME user mods!

I totally agree. If something is not done to stop spamming then this community will have problems growing.

They are like a cancer creeping in at weekends. Hopefully they will be ignored.
