tomjasz said:The mods here are good fellas. Nep, fech, dog, methods, are all top shelf. So very patient only one PIA in the bunch but a pile of help with just one asshat allegiance. I didn't mean to say this should become a harsh site for moderation. It just irks when someone dogs someone. No reason. Point made, move on. I apologize for implying that moderators didn't give your all Dogman, you helped me from day one. It made my future and sealed my fate. Again. I apologize. Chalo? My favorite poster. Hes helped me imeasurably. Every moderator has forgotten more than my stroke brain will ever learn.
I much agree, tomjasz, so far everyone here on ES has been really great to me, even Norton originally. I think Norton just got on a roll about dissing older hardware and couldn't stop without help - an addiction of sorts. And, I've had many great interactions with Dogman, I only hope he'll reconsider what kinds of behaviors might need a bit of a nudge in the right direction. His first comment was about "not ban-worthy" (as I recall), but banning isn't anything like the only response a moderator can provide... ... Just a nudge from one of the "authorities" can be all it takes to get people to behave better when their mouth (keyboard) has gotten the better of them. For the record, I really did and do appreciate Norton's earlier help, it was only his latching on to "old" as some kind of drum to beat on and took that out on me and my work, inappropriately in my view... Here's a suggestion; when it appears that someone is TRYING to get a negative response out of someone by being rude, it's time to tell them to knock it off. Is that somehow not a good idea?
Best to all.
