personally i'm inclined to agree with ypedal--if a person is prone to childish behavior in one place, provoked or not, it is usually only a matter of time before the person will do the same things here.
I complained, that a different forum is badly moderated, then recommend this forum as a better alternative,
which causes you to be fearful?
I pointed out to the Moderator that I felt his actions-attitude were in direct opposition to his presumed responsibilities.
I complained, and pointed out that he allowed disrespectful and degrading comments ... when! ... it supported his anti-electric bike, self proclaimed, agenda.
Seeing no positive reaction, I felt it to be appropriate to discontinue my, soon to be crapped on, "contributions" to the forum.
Instead I adopted, the Moderator exampled, attitude and modus operendi.
Which apparently, should be considered the, approved, acceptable model of behavior?
Belittling and degrading those I disagree with ... but I solely targeted the bullies!
Not by vulgarities, or direct insult, merely by questioning their reasoning, pointing out their hypocrisy and feeling "sad" about certain "depths of ignorance", I pointed out, from their posts.
With the hope, that possibly, he might change his attitude, or even better, that the Administrator might notice the "stink" and assign a non anti-eBike Moderator, to the motorized bike forum.
