<b><span>since my other thread <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=57309" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=57309</a><br><br>
has been locked, again unduly so i say,<br><br>
i make this new one to ask how is 'Community Assistance' not the place for my serious inquiry??<br><br><br><br><br><br>
why the coverup?<br><br>
why not let it be open for proper replies to my inquiry??<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Community Assistance has this subtext -<br><br>
"Community questions, comments, and suggestions."<br><br><br><br><br><br>
i ask that my thread be re-opened and i ask for proper treatment to my inquiry, than just trying to close it down and let injustice prevail which i complain/inquire about.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"></span></b>

Right. He has been asked to take any grievances he has regarding VB to Michael.

<span style="color:#008000;">This is not a community issue, Rahil. It's a personal one, and it should be kept personal. Send a PM. Don't keep starting threads.<br><br><br><br>
And I'm not opening your thread again, sorry. If you feel that me doing my job is an injustice to you, send a PM to Michael. I've asked you twice now (and nicely) to stop airing your personal problems on the board. I'm leaving this thread open but if it gets ugly, or turns into a bashfest, it's gone too.<br><br><br><br>
The "proper replies" that you are looking for should come from the individuals you are referring to. There's no reason for you to attempt mob justice just because one comment of yours was edited.<br><br><br><br>
Bottom line: don't like it, talk to Michael.</span>

i totally understand why you'd be pretty peeved right now- and can relate- but i think michael is the person to raise this with... use the system, don't get screwed by it instead.

SimplyRahil, like Brandon said, the problem you've presented is personal and not of a community nature. Such questions are best directed to Michael.

The issue seems like a community one to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">

Huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"> I personally don't have anything to take up with Michael. I'm already used to the fact that the mods can play favorites, and I know that nothing can be done about it.

it would be more like a community issue if he put the question to the community asking if anybody else had faced an issue like this, and what they thought about it, perhaps? but right now its just his personal greiveance, and i think doing that kind of thing right now wouldn't be the best way of handling it- cos the situation has kind of progressed from a simple query.

<b><span>nah it's only 'not community' because it's not one of 'their' friends being affected<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
i don't see why i must have to go to such lengths as contacting Michael about a 'ground-level' issue of disproportionate moderation<br><br><br><br><br><br>
daily far more 'inappropriate' posts are made all over on VB with no stepping at all<br><br>
you (the mod in question) can't say 'oh we did not see those'<br><br>
as they are fully visible and on active threads<br><br><br><br>
my 'joke' was very 'scale 1' on a scale of 1 to 10 of 'inappropriateness'<br><br><br><br>
see the 'Slut' thread for examples of scale 5 and up posts which even a certain couple MODs who frequent that thread do NOTHING about<br><br><br><br>
this is certainly a Community Issue as it deals with a complaint and suggestion coming out of a Public Post on a Public thread being Removed from Public sight to "Protect" 'younger Public VBers'</span></b>

I really don't think it is "such lengths" to click on michaels name and going to send a PM. If there is a post that you feel is inappropriate, all you have to do is click on "report post" that way you can be sure a mod will see it.

Rahil, if you encounter a post that you feel is inappropriate, REPORT IT. We, the mods, DO NOT, WILL NOT, CAN NOT read every post in every thread. When a post is reported, we will deal with it AT OUR DISCRETION.<br><br><br><br>
Inconsistent? We seriously try not to be. We go to great lengths to keep our moderation impersonal and fair. Having said that, we are human, and not perfect. If a particular member (not referring to any specific member at this point) has been annoying me, I am less likely to tolerate shenanigans on their part.<br><br><br><br>
Your post was inappropriate. Deal with it.<br><br><br><br>
If you don't like the way you're treated here, you are always welcome to click that little red "x" and go somewhere else. Your choice.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you,<br><br>

Not all mods find the same things inappropriate. When things are reported, especially if they aren't clearly in violation, they are discussed by the mods before any action is taken. It is not a matter of favoritism if some mods don't delete/report some posts they read because their views of inappropriate are different than the other mods. If YOU see something that YOU feel is inappropriate, than YOU can report it and we will discuss it. Obviously you have found many things on the boards that you felt were inappropriate, but I don't recall seeing them reported?!? Maybe you are playing favorites and will only report posts by people you don't like??<br><br><br><br>
We've recieved numerous complaints about you and you're still here, and you seem to feel the mods have it in for you, so explain that one? We edited a post, you were not put on suspension or banned.<br><br><br><br>
If you aren't happy here, then go somewhere else. We won't mind.

Rahil, look at it this way. you see a car speeding down the road, but their are no cops in sight. that guy gets away with speeding. you go over the speed limit 5 miles, and you get pulled over. the only difference is that you were caught speeding. that's all.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
besides, as far as moderation being inconsistant or biased, well, so is everything. life's not fair.<br><br><br><br>
mods aren't robots (as far as i can tell) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> and yeah, sometimes people get in the back door what won't fit through the front, but again, that's life.
