I'm sure you'll have the same response if the VIPs were made up entirely of conservatives.

Thanks, all. As I told the person who advised me of my selection, I'm just amazed that I haven't, in my brief time here, sufficiently torqued off enough other members to have put myself out of the running. I guess I just haven't been trying hard enough.

And hey, Matty, don't worry - in case you hadn't noticed, I like to tweak the foibles and irrationality of self-identified Liberals, too. (I think Cigar, for one, will back me up on that, though I'm pretty sure he wouldn't use those words.)

I was not picking on you. It's just a fact. No one gets picked for VIP or moderator unless it is a liberal. Now I know I have ticked enough off so I am not making a case for me, but think about it. What they are telling all conservatives is that they are not worthy enough. So, congrats on your position. I do like your posts.

Matty.... I have to disagree with you here. I've bee around boards for a lot of years. tPF is a most well balanced and well managed board due to volunteer efforts by Admin and Mods. After all. They put up with the likes of me. :smiley: *** not ass kissing so I don't get a warning ***

I guess a lot depends upon how you define a 'liberal'. In the proper English sense of the word, it means someone who is willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from his/her own, and is open to new ideas.

That seems like a good thing to me, and I certainly hope the mods are chosen from people who are liberal in that sense (VIPs have only an advisory role, so it doesn't matter as much).

If you use 'liberal' in the American political sense, it may mean someone who is not a conservative, and interested in stuff like social welfare, and generally socialist things. I don't know all the mods and VIPs well enough, but I don't see many socialist points of view being put by Peter1469 - just for example. I agree with Jimmyz, that the mod team is pretty well balanced.

So, don't take this the wrong way, but maybe you need to provide a universally accepted definition of the noun liberal, before anyone can accept or reject your statement that only liberals get picked for mods or VIPs. :smiley:

In some quarters, over here, one only has to express a "liberal" viewpoint on a single issue - same-sex marriage, keeping religion out of government, or medical privacy in matters of reproduction, for example - to be forever labeled, by some, as a [expletive deleted] liberal.

Nope! I went through this with another mod once. Gave a name and was told that person was hardly ever here so I started paying attention. Hardly ever is most of the time. like I said it was nothing more than an observation. Kerry on.

Well, it seems that if it was an important enough issue that you comment on it every time someone is nominated, that you would at least have a name to offer....

Is is it against the rules to observe that every time a person is selected to a VIP or mod it is a liberal? It makes it look as if conservatives are not worthy, nor are they valued. I keep stating what I think and a mod mocks my observation by posting crying babies? Why are you people offended by this observation? And I did submit a name. The response was as described. Now what?

I never received that information. I am curious as to potential candidates who may be getting looked over. Just PM me the name, we can discuss if you'd like.

Post another crying baby satcham can get her rocks off. I am going to shut up now. I will post some here if you don't ban me, it's fun watching all the special wonderful liberals break all the rules and then be given VIP slots. I don't think I'll even bother reporting rule violations anymore. It does absofuckingnogood.

What's the matter, Chris?

Look, I know some of you aren't strong enough to post and engage in discussion without an easy way out when you get in over your heads. When somebody calls you on your bullshit, it is much easier to just ban them than it is to defend your position. I get that. The fact that doing so really does nothing but kill discussion is irrelevant, right?

Here you go Safety, make this bitch a VIP. She's been told by the mods to stop stalking and harassing me but you see the bitch is obsessed. See, I stopped when I was asked, but not this bitch, she's a liberal and dosen't have to follow the rules. , I think you should reward her with a VIP status. Do it.

Standing Wolf and I have been posting on the same forums for many a year. He is a self identified Liberal who is actually smart enough, unlike most Liberals (or Conservatives, for that matter) to view each issue individually and which each one according to its merit or lack of merit as he sees it. As a result, he ends being seen as too Conservative by most Liberals and too Liberal by most Conservatives. I have disagreed with him on many issues and I have agreed with him on many issues.

He does a good job of demonstrating why the labels "Conservative" and "Liberal" have been so misapplied as to be almost useless in identifying anyone's ideology these days.
