I've had plenty of problems with how VB
operates, although it was way worse in the past, when there were meat-eaters (plural) on the moderating team.
But I don't see this latest issue (about cleansing the thread) that Mlp raised as a big deal. It seemed clear to me that it was about her bringing up some unrelated comment(s) from another thread just to beat CG over the head with it/them. Let's not make it into something greater than it is: a personal grudge against the guy who says "'lo
" a lot. And I am fine with beating him on the head about it, btw, because his comments were
****ed up. There could just be a better thread for it.
What I find more frustrating is that sometimes it seems the mods are more opposed to thread de-railing when that de-rail is an actual conversation with long posts, rather than when it's just some random chit-chat. To me, the latter should be much more discouraged than the former and not the other way around.
Mlp contributed so much to this board, much more than the vast vast majority of the people here (just take a look at the length of some of her posts, and how many threads she started), and I'm sad to see her gone.
Mlp was also sometimes very mean and snarky and nasty and passive-aggressive. Which makes me even more sad to see her gone.
