    thanks.. Yeah -- all "new users" are in a separate group and all or most of their privileges can be selected.. They "graduate" from that group at the same minimum post count which has changed so many times, I'm not real sure what it is today...

    I did ask them to look into it..

    We actually ARE non-partisan because the rules do not in way allow moderation to judge opinion or legal content. That's why we have bigots, racists, anarchists, partisan dupes and trolls.. The rules are designed for -- and all we want -- is for folks to respect the topic of each individual thread.. Warnings are for posts WITHOUT specific content, pure 100% flaming or violation of some of lines that can't be crossed.. The last category is very few lines and ones that MOST everyone should agree on threats, stalking, family dissing, accusations of pedo or beasty, etc....

    The mod staff is universally APPALLED at the state of politics.. Both sides are spirally into gibberish, hypocrisy and irrelevance to fixing anything that SHOULD be happening in the swamp... We're literally just plugging the holes and doing it quite mechanically...

    I am not singling out this board. OTOH, sometimes you read a grain of truth in criticisms. Like I said, some guys are professional trolls on these boards. When you see them troll someone and they lead it into a conversation that goes south because a poster with less board savvy takes the bait, it gives one pause to think.

    I'm like a lot of people. I can look in and say, if it were me I'd eliminate the professional trolls instead of the mark. But, I'm not in your position and my opinion is like an asshole. Everybody you know has one.

    Although I wasn't recruited to come here, I was recruited to join into the flame zone.

    My thought is, if you are unhappy posting here, go somewhere else. I do on occasion. Just don't expect another broad to be better, because it won't be. Oh maybe at first, but later you will see the advantages of being here. I think this place could be much better, but it is not mine to change.

    Yes, almost convinced myself to post more, but no.
