Default Are Moderators Moderating?

I'm curious.

Are moderators monitoring threads regarding personal attacks?

Hi Seashore,

I think the whole thçing is sorta broken for the last few days, its very hard to stay logged on and takes 10 minutes to change a page-- I don't know if that helps, but it might explain the lack of traffic.

Hope you are OK

Hi Harper

Thanks for responding.

I don't believe the problems with staying logged on is causing what I have observed. But of course I could be wrong.

yes I can understand it won't drive people to write mean things, but even the moderators seemed to be having problems, I think it was Karen that said everything was in slow motion, so it may explain the lack of moderators.

Just a thought, there is little activity though at the moment, I had a day of no threads, on sat. I think......

One thing that is certainly missing from this forum is the moderation of posts that promote dangerous medical frauds. Either through ignorance or just sheer gullibility some people are promoting highly questionable individuals and their useless and possibly dangerous products.

That's ridiculous. People talk here about what works, doesn't, ideas, new products, non-GMO, pro-alt, all sorts of things like harmonics, love vibes, whatever. What's "dangerous" about it? For goodness sake, commercial milk in the USA is dangerous and it's on the shelves. Usually forums have guidelines about products that its members promote, but ... people sell products and services. Why not network a bit? Here, I think here's been a corner for commercial activities. When people's work/livelihood is posted, I tend to think some members like it and some don't.

What I'm saying is "dangerous medical frauds" can be ... what? difficult to define. Are you going with FDA kind of opinions? It's the internet, all buyer beware?... are you banning vitamins?

Hi all, yes we are moderating, however the last few days have been a server problem that now seems to be fixed. I will get admin to write a statement as to what happened. I am unsure as im no techie. Server ppls had to totally close forum yesterday to reload some software, that much I know. Now that all seems fine again we will be here for you all.

Peace

Ross H

Also due to the 'slow-ness' of late i havnt been able to load any pages and figured if others wanted to report any posts I wouldnt of got them, also PM's were unavaliable. Any issues with posts/threads needing moderating please PM me and I will take a look see.

Peace

If you see something objectionable, click the report post button. There is no way the moderators can possible see all the posts made.

I'm lucky if I can read 3 or 4 threads a day and I look for ones most likely to need moderator intervention or explanations.

Handling reported posts is very time consuming and you will not always receive an answer to your report nor will the moderators always agree that some action needs to be taken. Moderators will so what they can with the time they have available to give.

I'm still resigning as moderator, and currently spending very little time on the forums. I'm looking forward to spending much, much more time in the real world.
