Madness How can a Moderator stop a thread?

Why should a moderator, 23 years old without the intellect to have a discussion be able to stop a thread.

Yes you know who you are. You were wrong, rude and got the wrong person on to have a rant

Hmnn.? valid point, I guess, to a degree anyway, if all sides of the debate are taken into serious consideration?:

No point as they made you a moderator and you lack the requirements for that so I guess as i am only 1 in thousands, I am immaterial.

Or am I?

Re: How can a Moderator stop a thread?

True, but it is nice to attain the truth of a matter, by open discussion, and there are certainly a few threads on here tonight of a most intriguing nature, for viewers to contemplate?:

Marchionne, this site has rules which you said you would abide by when you signed up. You are being insulting to a fellow member of this site which is not allowed. I will be giving you infraction points if this continues. If you cannot follow the forums rules feel free to cancel your membership.

Re: How can a Moderator stop a thread?

That's rather a little draconian, as the rudeness seems to have been a bit of a two way street, on more than one thread this evening? However, if the ruling parties decide it is thus, so be it?:

You obviously cannot read either. That was I said. I happen to take that as abuse aimed at me.

Classicgal93, you accept this do you/

Re: How can a Moderator stop a thread?

okay.. this is kinda getting boring now - so marchionne your now saying that age has a meaning to all of this - so by myself only being 21 would mean what exactly - does that mean that i shouldnt be able to do certain things that a member of your age can?

or does this now to anyone else seem really pointless and boring ?¿

dude chill - the whole debate thing is getting 100% out of hand!

read the rules - my mates forum specificaly says - you cant mention other websites on the forum!! so be glad you can mention them here even if they are blanked out!!!

right back to saving the world

Re: How can a Moderator stop a thread?

i never said it wasn't, i said that it was debating and that it turned into ranting.

I just don't really see the point, that's all

Re: How can a Moderator stop a thread?

Ah! it's a little clearer now, I think?. The IM thing comes into play, which of course is then bound to leave some in a dark corner.: Much to do about nothing really, and a pin cushion such as I am, shrugs a multitude of stabs off, as that's my nature, I hope.

Looks like we're done here.

I leave you and say goodnight!

I want an apology but expect not a lot

I enjoyed my rant thank you.
