    Term limits for mods

    So what's the story with that. In legislative and executive branches we have voting. In the judicial branch we have lifetime apointments. It appears moderators have the latter? How about impeachment? How about a recall! YES!! Arnold for moderator!

    (at the rate I'm going I'll be IP banned before the day is out. I'll miss you guys. Not my intention though.)

    who said I'm talking about Salem? Dude, I'm just having fun with a certain tight ass.

    edit: No, what I mean is I actually am pulling for Arnold to become a mod.

    I would like to say that I have never had a problem with a moderator, nor has there been a time when they did something that was not for the best. The moderators are knowledgeable and helpful, and they do a good job of regulating these forums. I think if you have such a problem with them, then you should go create your own forum.

    Why? fyb's expressing his displeasure in getting one of his threads closed for what he thought was a stupid reason, and I'd tend to agree.

    I agree as well... the post about the moderator deserved to be closed, but not the first one...

    this is why I don't miss this place when I'm gone. I stop in one day in 6 months and I find a thread whining about the mods... STFU. Go troll someone else's forum if you're not happy here.

    Lucky you're not a mod or I had to agree with FYB

    ober, bite me.

    edit: All of you flashdaddee guys should understand where I'm coming from on this. Over there, you get something that loosely resembles freedom. There are stuck up, anal retentive rules here. Even in the GD board. In any case, this seems to have been addressed and is a dead issue. Mods whom I love, feel free to close this.
