    I'm not here to seek your approval or argue. I stated my case. I trust admin more than you can know.

    But I won't pretend, either.

    If anyone relevant wants proof and it's ok with admin I would provide it in private.

    We're not arguing and no one asked you to pretend. I'm just giving you my opinion: many of the complaints I see here are petty and I am not surprised that Admin doesn't like to get too involved.
    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.

    I think the almost total lack of response to this thread speaks volumes. Our fellow posters don't view this as a forum run by members just because some unelected posters are in charge.

    A lot of people claim that they no longer have problems.

    I have one observation: since the few bans it seems as if a bit more quibbling among the members is allowed in the parts of the Forum not part of the serious side or marked tPF. To include long rounds of name calling.

    That arraignment seems fine to me. Although I know that some disagree.

    Or it could be that most of the membership is satisfied.

    I don't read any of it.

    How about a vip/mod oversight board run by elected representatives of the membership?

    Does it matter? He established moderators and VIPs specifically so he didn't have to micromanage the forum. When asked, he always responds promptly and excellently to questions and concerns.
