In every board there should always be a moderator or some type of authority or else people would take advantage and spam would run rampant

Question 2 doesn't make sense with the choices given for the answer.

But I'd say the poster prior to mine is a good example of why I'd like some moderation.

Boards that have no or little moderation are overrun with spam. I hate that, how can you communicate if you have lines of viagra ads in between posts?

I know I'm in the minority and many times my personal views are quite extreme but, the reason I suggest this forum to friends and what makes this forum so successful is it's free expression. That said, I also agree that stalkers and trolls should be controlled. Usually they simply go away by not acknowledging them.



sometimes extreme is good, at least its not boring !

Agreed ch. With the exception of posting PSA's to warn newbies and inform users how to block and ignore trolls, I think it's best we all stop feeding him. I know I've been guilty of it a lot lately, but I am going to do my level best to be like the little girl in my avatar from here on out tongue.gif

I've been thinking about this and the more we acknowledge him, the more we play into his trap and give him what he wants. He would love it if we all disppeared and a feminist board which goes against every ounce of his "belief" system, the happier he would be. If we ignore him, it makes him irrate. Yes there will be pictures, but I'm thinking just put him on ignore and do just that. We have that ability here. I'm just going to carry on like he's not there, which he really isn't. It's just another peice of trash I ignore and step over.

agreed. i'm still all for mods, but i don't think you should have acces to the board/profiles or be able to post if you're a guest/validating.

i think there should be an outside moderator to be fair. we don't work for bust so that kind of power should rest with the magazine. which i think the lounge lady is doing already.

previous sites i belonged to would have an outside moderator keep track of all material posted no matter how long you've belonged to a board out of fairness. i think everyone should be held to the same type of scrunity like newbies and trolls.

i think i would just like the site to be more restricted to "guest" users. if you join, fine. but, i don't think you should be able to read the message board without belonging to the board.

other than that. that's my only request.

To be honest, I agree with GGG for the most part. The photos are disturbing, but the rest... eh. I avoid annoying bigoted people IRL, I can easily do the same in the lounge.

I think that appointing any BUSTie to act as moderator could potentially lead to power abuse. I don't like to think that of anyone here, of course, but any BUSTie acting as moderator would at some stage delete a post which others might feel shouldn't have been deleted. I can see how things could get messy; whereas now, as has been noted below, trollish behaviour can actually bond us closer together. Like this discussion.

I am not trying to be a negative nancy, but here is the thing. LL is the moderator. This board is set up by a magazine, a business entity. This software (usually) probably only has three slots for moderators, one with absolute power and two with clean up abilities.

If this was a hobby board with a visible moderator, it would be different here. BUST doesn't know any of us from Eve, just because we spend time here does not give any of us the right to have moderating powers and BUST prefers it being in their offices so they can see what is going on when they have time. I am sure they are all extremely busy getting the magazine ready, etc.

We just need to ignore, and move on. It is just a message board, we are all strong enough to hang. Love ya ladies.

Actually, I'm betting that "moderating the Bust Lounge" is just way down on the list of things the Bust interns have to do. In what is most likely an unpaid position, it's more of a resume sweetener than a priority task. Also, they seem pretty Monday through Friday. The Assicus Hatticus has always since I've been here started the pix fest on a Friday evening, maximizing the time he has before someone comes in to clean up on Monday. The "really bad" times are when he doesn't get cleaned up until Tuesday, because he's checking in too and just goes wild when the PTB are too busy to give him attention.

Speaking of the PTB, I'm also betting that "LoungeLady" is an account used by Bust staffers when they need to do something on the board. I seriously doubt that it is just one person, why would they go to all the trouble of creating another admin account instead of sharing the LL password with interns?

I didn't really expect BUST to do much here, but perhaps the interns will/have read this and be a little more diligent in at least keeping photo-shopped dead babies off the site for days on end. Doesn't seem too much to ask.
