    Can't be worse than leading a "team" of real people.

      Definitely worse, people are generally not so tough when they come out from behind their keyboards.

        Maybe I seriously missing something, but there was fuck all moderation years ago.. and the grand plan to get back to this past is to use moderation? And as whoever it was.. lefty? a cam? said, what point in time are you picking?
        Escalate into "yo mumma's fat" and stuff...

        There was always moderation dude and the use of it has ebbed and flowed with how the users were acting...

        I admit there have been decent spans of time in the past where we as moderators just sat back and twiddled our thumbs because you guys, the users, were either self moderating or were taking happy pills or something and were actually getting along...

        Sometimes these quiet periods actually followed periods of heavy moderation...

        I'll have a look to see if I can come up with any periods this happened and maybe why...

          You must not have had to sit on a sexual harassment or workplace bullying tribunal.

              2009-2011 was the pinnacle of PSB wit and charm.

                    Re: Moderation

                    Whilst infuriating at time and completely mind blowing at others, some of the racial discussions have been really interesting. It would be a shame for the whole threads to get cut. I realise this probably wont be the intention, but it can easily happen.

                    Lets hope it doesnt stifle a good old heated debate.

                      Doesn't singling out one member in this context in front of thousands of members constitute as bullying itself?

                      Does this suggest we are to disregard this whole oxymoron of a post, or in fact give [MENTION=5151]Brougham[/MENTION] the first 24 hour ban to get the ball rolling?
                      Or if you're new, or you don't read enough of his posts to understand the in joke, does this seem like just another in joke?
                      Was it meant to soften the blow?

                      If you're going to go all out and moderate the forum, make it a sticky and put it at the top of each page, why single out one person? It devalues your intent. Nobody will take it seriously because we all know in a couple of weeks, you'll show leniency to the people here who made and make the forum what it is.

                      Treat everyone equally, not with token gestures.

                            This isn't directed at any one person, it's only in response to opinion I've seen expressed many times.

                            PSB is a social structure, creating a name and a password doesn't entitle you to equal say. If I'm out with a group of my long term friends and some bloke walks up to try and start something with one of us, do you think I'd be saying to my friends "hey guys, it's okay because he's a person too and his opinion is valid"? Fuck no. And if I want to call one of my mates a princess because he's being soft, I will. If some random wants to have a go at me for calling him names I'd expect all of my group to tell him where to go, then address me privately later on if they didn't agree with my actions.

                            There are other forums created by people who couldn't fit in to PSB. They're boring, safe forums, I visited and left quickly because they were too touchy-feely and contrived. I like a place where people can say "cunt" in a way that's not abusive and get away with it.

                            Deleting the thread for sick jokes was a 2012 decision, not the only PC step I saw implemented. Don't let PSB become a homogenous product for all to safely enjoy.

                              Pretty sure that time had a cathartic posting and expulsion thread.
