Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

This is what happens on an unmoderated site. A few will push the limits. Nothing will happen. They will push farther and farther. Eventually some other(s) will tire of it—and the lack of consequence for bad behavior—and push back. The lack of moderation will swing both ways.

Anarchy does not work. Some level of governance is necessary. That is kind of one of the founding ideas of our nation.
You know that you have the power to remove yourself from this forum. But based on you crying out for a Mod tells me you, yourself does not have the willpower to take control of your life. If your work offers medical services, you should not hesitate in taking advantage of it.

And your posts demonstrate a lack of control on YOUR part. I am asking for moderation because of YOU and another resident troll.

YOU can stop this if YOU will stop making jerk posts. John can stop this by stepping in and moderating. It is ironic that you decry my posts (that respond to your attacks), yet you don’t agree that this site is in need of moderation.

As I said before, there are a few things that will stop this:

1. You and the other troll stop trolling.

-or-

2. The site owner (and any staff he chooses) starts moderating the off-topic attacks, the trolling by you and another, and, yes, even my responses to the trolling.

As long as you or the other troll keep it up and there is no moderation of your behavior, I will continue to criticize your behavior AND the lack of moderation at this site.

You can stop this any time you choose. I am no longer of a mind to try to avoid confrontation because I know that you and the other troll won’t stop even if I do.

You realize this isn't your site? Or mine,?

It's Johns. .
What you think about how his site should run means less than nothing.
Just like mine or anyone else's.

You have the same four options the rest of us have.

Use the ignore button.
Don't read posts you don't like.
Leave in your own
Keep attacking the site owners method of running HIS site until he boots you into the great cyber ether in the sky.

I will say one thing for John. Anyone else's site you would already be permanent history for posting a thread attacking the owner.

It really amazes me that you hypocritically won’t take your own advice.

You could leave.

Your could ignore me.

You could not read the posts of mine that you don’t like.

It is the irony of ironies that you don’t see this.

I am asking John to moderate his site. He is free to see that request as an attack, or as a plea, or as advice, or as...

I am attacking the trolls for trolling. Moderating trollish behavior stops that—cold.

You sure waist a lot of time on your self righteous arrogance.

Eye95, knock it off...you are an adult who insists on playing the whining child who pleads the teacher, their caregivers, their acquaintances, and everyone is just against them!

If this activity wasn’t repeat exhibited behaviour from your last participation on this forum where you went toe to toe with the moderator at the time which resulted in your voluntary banishment so you could start your very own short-lived eye95.org forum i might sympathize with your perceived claims you are being picked on.

But eye95, it is as you and everyone knows your current bizarre behavioural display is repeat behaviour, even to publicly calling out the site owner as evidenced in the olde threads on this site.

Now make a decision or you could find yourself on the short end of the straw ~ again!

I usually do not respond to this particular troll (because I find him inane), but I will make an exception here. In response to his first sentence:

No. He is a huge part of the problem that I’d like John to deal with

Since you are in the mood of making exceptions, how about you make an exception and extract yourself from this forum. We promise to pretend we will miss you.

Eye95, tis quite interesting how your advice members should put you on ignore, yet you fail to do the same for your own distractors ~ why is that?

Quite a quirk that you refer to me in the third party....provides interesting insight to your social deficit(s) but it is disheartening to see your behaviour getting worse...

Finally, while i do find it fascinating eye95 you refer to me in the third party...a bit of respect please...if you insist on the petulant childish name calling, I am Mr Troll to you.

More trolling. Another jerk post.

BTW, some of you are saying that you want this to stop, yet you keep contributing to the exchange. Such hypocrisy. That’s OK. I am trying to get John to see what I am talking about—and you guys are illustrating my point just so well.

I'm sure you have heard the terms, pulling your chain or taking the bait, hook line and sinker. Try this on for size,
driving you bananas, driving you up the wall, giving you a hard time, or putting you through the wringer.

You make it so easy. Fun,fun, fun, fun for everyone!

Good to see you admitting to trolling. Hopefully John will take not of what the problem is.

Good heavens eye95 you are so disturbed it has affected your cognitive thought processes since it seems the sentence above makes absolutely no sense whatsoever?

Again eye95, your affliction seems to manifest itself later in the day ...

Again, are you alright?
