    Actually Ixion old chap, what is happening is we are working towards a system of pre-approving everyones post before it goes up on KB. That way we will offend no-one and everyone. Next on the agenda is regular home-visits to be carried out by a mobile mod team (MMT's) to ensure that none of you talk to each other without our approval first. Sorry, but as far as the next steps go, well you will be informed when we feel the time is right.

    Face it, we will take over the world piece by piece. We are only starting at KB.

    The studied contempt with which the Heaven Born, the self appointed elite of the world , regard mere members is well known, and nothing new. More of the promised leadering I suppose.

    Join the LOA group and they show up in New Posts. Don't join it and you'll never know they exist.

    At the very least PMs could be used more.

    As much as I feel uncomfortable about censorship/PC/Big Brother/whatever you like, some regulation is required wherever there is a disparate group of people interacting.
    Think meeting rules, traffic regulations, accepted social norms.




    Hmmm...I feel a bit better.
    You're not wrong about the shift from interesting and amusing off topic stuff to spurious tripe. However, again, that's simply a function of the growth in the site. That sort of crap used to happen, but so rarely that nobody noticed. Now the percentage is still the same, but the actual number is significantly higher.

    If this was censorship then things would be removed. They're not, they're just living in a different spot now.

    OK, while MT is sorting out the technical stuff... I have been thinking.

    There have always been guidelines about nudity and what is acceptable and what is not... so that has never changed, what has changed is that there is a forum for it now...

    So you guys are bitching because you can post pics any time you like, all day long of you like?? They wont be moved, removed, edited etc etc...

    Hmm... yes that is censorship 100%... bastard mods, stop letting people post! You Nazi pigs...



    Fuck, people crack me up.
    Damned if you... damned if you dont.

    Some people just dont have anything else to do Joni. KB is part of their lives, and people generally don't like or embrace change (even if it such a small thing as a new forum for dodgy shit) . I dont object at all to LOA, not sure how popular it will be though, or what kind of people will be posting.

    Yeah... but it will be argued I still think like a Mod...

    What cracks me up is that I understand that it you couldn't find someone who could/would mod the new forum and you had to recruit?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm prepared to be.

    Hmmm hair splitting??

    Let me clarify for you then. We have both old and new (literally and figuratively speaking....) moderators for the forum, same as we do for other forums

    Not quite sure why it would 'crack you up' if it where indeed true that no-one 'could /would' mod the new forum?

    Each to their own I guess
