Moderators, Gladiators I Challenge Thee....

Dear Zeus: Mistress, Goddess of all things whiplike has a challenge for thee to have one Free day without the Moderators just to see how things go- come on whaddya say? If the Forum members can communicate without it turning into an "Ethernet Parking Lot Brawl" I will surrender one of my finest custom made whips to thee...

That would be Bill's (webmaster) call, not mine.

Not likely to happen though.

If for one day we don't have moderators, I will go CRAZY with stupid, foul, inappropriate posts just so the moderators know how much we miss them.

I think that it would be safer to unlock the gates of Attica for one day.

For an idea of how that could turn out, even when loosely moderated, Benzworld "offtopic" will give you an idea of what can happen.

It could be a real trainwreck, if you ask me. One of their habitues just recently joined up here, jumped in hard with both feet and brought that attitude here, and I have the feeling he got his "wings clipped", as he's been absent recently.

The Gates of Hell would be a more apt analogy.

Or the Gates of Bellevue Mental Hospital.

Anarchy! Anarchy!


Their needs to be a thread started with a time limit. Lets say 2 hours, then it self expires. No holds barred.

Yep, they jostle every day, but today was one of those 'all out' battles that happen from time to time. It's what they do on their own.

I do think it would be interesting if the Mods opened one thread for 48 hours, thatĎs it.
Each member gets one post to said thread, thatís it. Each membersí post can only be five lines or less, thatĎs it.
Anything you want to say. But, no outright vulgarity. No porn.
Anyone breaks a rule - instant ban. The thread stays on OD for 24 more hours after lock-down for all to read, thatís it.
Then - Itís deleted by the opening Mod.

I donít see where this would cause too much harm to the forum. But then, Iím no forum expert either.
The interesting thing would be the posts that turn out to be nothing like youíd perhaps expect from a particular member. On the other hand. Many may be a simple waste of time. As we certainly know what some members would have to say. They try different angles of it all but daily.

BTW, "thatís it." (New phrase for the day. )
