    I wonder why you keep playing these childish games.
    For everything there is a time and a place.
    the treocentral.com is a serious section of the board we were discussing a serious matter and silly jokes have no place in that..
    You are an adult, please act like one..

    If you're talking about the Developer thread, than I apologize. I though you meant THIS thread was a joke.

    for the record...I am VERY serious...

    I believe treocentral has jumped the shark in a big way.

    And why the attitude? Your sarcasm is what would probably have gotten me a warning. Are Mods exempt?

    appologies accepted

    About this thread, if he thinks it is going downhill, and complaints just about any action the mods do, why does he keep hanging around here.. it's not that there is no other choice...

    This board and VC.com previously has been run this way for years, we are not going to change the concept because one user feels we should all act as kids. Get over it.

    Yes, I am getting frustrated over this, since I'm waisting my volunteering time playing kindergarten cop..

    But, what is the harm in injecting a bit of humor every once in awhile? I can understand flames, but a little harmless joke once in a while?

    If this is to be the policy around here, TC needs to bring in more mods. Probably every thread here beyond 5-10 post has some off topic comment. I guess it's once the original question is answered, you'll need to lock it. I guess I'll click the triangle everytime I see a post not relating to the original question of a thread.

    Your choice...


    I believe that your attack on my post would not have come down had it been posted by someone other than dutchtrumpet. Playful one liners have been welcome here since I joined and make the information fun as well as useful. The sarcasm was goina little nuts a few weeks ago and I was out of line.

    This however is you having a a bone to pick with me and is obvious.

    I was post on topic in that thread was an active participant. An opportunity for a one liner was set and I took it. I didn't attack anyone.

    This type of posting happens in almost every thread. I KNOW that you do not come down consistently on this or this message board would look entirely different.

    I find you harrassment even more childish than my jokes.

    I hang around because I like the community and having fun sharing info about this great device. I have gotten to beta test great software and corespond with some really neat people. you don't get that if personalities are squashed by the moderation.

    If you hate volunteering to play kindergarten cop, why do you hang around?

    I need a drink after reading the daily argument over nothing serious, as usual!

    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    As said before for everything there is a time and a place.
    This was a serious thread about a serious issue that got polluted with off topic fooling around.
    Because of this people lose focus on what the topic is and pretty quick you get another aflac thread (not that there is anything wrong with the aflac thread)
    Get the point?
    A lot of times we let it slip since it is a once off thing or in a section where fooling around is less of an issue (general treo for example)
    We don't want to police all off topic post, but in certain area's we are more strickt.

    sorry...I don't buy it. Your lack of consistency speaks for itself.

    As you told me...lighten up and have a drink.

    I dunno Tool, it seems some are more apt to get the Mods ire with less, than others who may do worse.

    Yes the fact that you posted it makes a difference, for a number of reasons.
    You are a 'high profile' user which is not a problem, but it does trigger more responses from other users. If it had been Insertion, chick, clairegrll or dathomas for example it would be the same thing. Nothing personal.
    secondly you seem to want to find 'the edge' see how far you can go. So I told you that this was too far. Actually I asked you to think about it yourself.

    Harrassment? that's a strong word isnt it? would you say that to a cop who pulled you over for speeding after he gave you a warning before too?
    Besides, I only asked you if it was neccesary, thats all. Harrasment would be deleting it, banning you etc. etc.

    But isn't that human nature?
    In my case, I know from personal experience that my level of patience with some of my employees is significantly lower than with others based on past experience.

    re:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/s...5353#post655353

    It's easy to see why authoritarian governments abhor a free press and love censorship. It's so much easier to just close a thread expressing critical opinions than to have to deal with criticism, or try to justify the policies being criticized. If it's off topic for the area it's in, why not move it to the off-topic section instead of closing it?

    Honestly, though, I can't think of anything that's more on-topic for the Treo Central forum than the actions of Treo Central moderators. (And yes, I see that it was closed because it had veered "off topic," but I'm not sure I buy that explanation. It seems to me that most of the posts that are critical of TC mods end up getting closed.)
