    The only thing I have to say, is that I have no problems whatsoever or complaints
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Another thing... if there is a specific moderation problem, member SHOULD be able to discuss in a format such as this. I am not talking about moderator bashing, I am talking about citing specific examples of moderation that made no sense or seemed completely arbitrary and sometimes, in violation of forum rules or actions taken when no violation of forum rules occurred. This business of the moderators policing themselves and being answerable to no one but themselves isn't working.
    ADMIN oversees moderation and complaints and will deal with it.

    We've seen how well that works.

    How often is Admin even on the board?

    I'm content. The staff took action against the most brazen trolls and that was, IMO, the biggest issue we faced here.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    If you hit the Forum tab at the top left, scroll down and you can see when people are logged on or have been recently logged on. You can also PM him.

    I disagree strongly. I can produce pms where admin agrees with me on a moderation situation but claims in the end that he could do nothing about it because he was outnumbered.

    I think the world of @ADMIN. But let's not pretend that he's inclined to over rule what are essentially unsupervised moderators.

    I've appealed to Admin only once that I can remember. He acted promptly in overruling a rather blatant act of favoritism on the part of several mods. That could have been because my case was airtight but my experience has been a good one.

    Nothing personal, but it could also be because you are an original poster.

    Or a valued member who brings something to the forum. In any case, my experience was a good one. Again, I think he reacted so quickly because I was obviously right and what happened reflected very poorly on both the mods and the forum. That said, I have no trouble believing he doesn't like to wade into all the petty BS at tPF. I don't trouble him with petty BS. Nothing personal, but maybe that's why some complaints go unanswered.
