Question of the Day

Alright, someone guard the door and keep a look out, the Po Po is running wild around here and I'd like no spying eyes while we conduct a little business. You see them around just shout out 5-0, 5-0 and then everyone split different ways so at least they can't catch all of us.

So admin in their infinite wisdom, cough cough, announces that we the blogs now have "mall cops." Can't you picture them on their two wheeled scooters, safety helmet, blowing on their whistle at every pretend crime and hazard? What, is the average age of the blogs 11 where everyone will be all goody goody because "wanna be super hero" is lurking?



Nahhh, I'm just joking, I like the idea of blog moderators, but you know darn well some of them have already received warnings "watch out for that Derr guy," so I had to keep my admirers happy.

I guess the question is, will it work? Wiil Doc Masters blog be any saner during a hurricane event as the weather weenies try to be heroes and out guess the NHC's scientific forecasts? For that matter will the 5:00 NHC discussion quit being reposted 20 times before it's even been out 5 minutes? Sorry but it will never be a place for a reasonable exchange of ideas and probabilities during times od storms, but maybe that's not the intention in the first place. Will they be able to stop my friend the infamous MisterPerfect and his march to have 1 million aliases here? Not a chance, in fact for him I think this might just be encouragement. Now I expect it will stop spammers quicker and the time a raucous post lasts will be far less, but I know some moderators have mentioned they will try to steer conversations to a more moderate tone and I just don't see that happening. Good luck. I also don't think we saw any ladies on the moderators list. A little sexual bias there Mr Yakuza? Hey, if I don't get to harass the grand leader of the blogs why blog at all? We also might need to look at your ethnic diversity while we're at it. Will there be mistakes and errors on the part of the goon squad, errrr moderators? Of course just as their have been with the picture moderators and we can only hope that admin will deal with it accordingly. if not, we can always do a few "on strike" blogs. I know Yak Man, as if that scares you any. :-) My hope is that the time spent by admin policing the blogs turns into time improving the site as I love this place, errrr, like this place, errrr tolerate it, ok this place grows on you and I've been here long enough I've planted roots.

So for once I've answered my own blog and it leads to the QOD?


Do you like the fact there are now moderators? Good, Bad or Indifferent?

Now that you realize I'm a mod I see you got your council together..smart move but really?..lol. Okay I'm ready for my interrogation..

I guess the question is, will it work? It's been working for months. It was a little sketchy at first when all we had was banhammers & SNK wouldn't get out of his chopper.

Will Doc Masters blog be any saner during a hurricane event as the weather weenies try to be heroes and out guess the NHC's scientific forecasts? After that apocalypse, presidential election, Bopha & a few mass shooting I think we are ready to give it whirl.

For that matter will the 5:00 NHC discussion quit being reposted 20 times before it's even been out 5 minutes? I would like to nominate you to go in there everyday & assign this task to one person. I really just want to look at swirling color graphics & make predictions of doom.

Will they be able to stop my friend the infamous MisterPerfect and his march to have 1 million aliases here? I wouldn't dream of trying.

I think this might just be encouragement. You know it.. MP~ Thank you for coming back...& reopen your blog so I can win a bet:)

Do you like the fact there are now moderators? Good, Bad or Indifferent? It's been good. Your computer virus protection no longer launches when you come into the blogs, the community participation numbers are up, People are coming back, new people are showing up, as is people that have been members forever but never dared to post.

We were shocked at how little anyone notice so many & I mean alot, a big large number~ of spam filled blogs get cleaned out. You could see the cheer & feel the clean but no one really noticed.

I have to thank you too derr for never completely pulling up roots & again for the guy in green.

DONUTS? Did someone say Ric was giving out free DONUTS?

Hey Ric, I'll clear those pesky Mods out of here for
you so we can have some donuts and coffee together.:)

You have any room at your place to park my chopper?

I noticed that a few weeks ago, though at the time I had no idea you were a moderator. I think it was when they were arguing about walking or running in rain!

Oh, man!
Wait until Skye finds out you don't think she is a lady!

Yeah, I'm happy about it and pleased with the choices. I've already seen the results over the last 3 or 4 months.

Okay, maybe Aubie was a questionable choice, but well...life is all about compromise. Or so they tell me.

So, I'm good with it...but then again...I haven't been banned...yet!
