Guys, we really need to tone it down a bit here

    You guys have definitely stepped up with your moderating, deleting of post and I know from experience just getting back from being banned for 5 days. While I think some you guys are a bit overboard and completely disagree with you on this, you guys make the rules, so we have to follow. I think it would be real helpful if a MOD who deletes or edits a post if they would add their name to it so we know who ask for the reason. Also if a poster reports another poster because he or she feels insulted why not make them block that person for 3 months mandatory. It would also be nice to know the poster who reports you without having to ask for it. That's what I did in the past got the names of a few on the far left who kept on reporting me then blocked them for a while . The only reason you Mods are feeling over worked is your own doing. Remember this is Too hot, it was far better 3 years ago compared to what it is today in my opinion.

    FDR was far more authoritarian than Trump would ever be because he had the political capital to get what he wanted done. Trump may think he wants to be like that, but nobody else is going along with it and you can only do so much with executive orders.

    No doubt....now posts agreeing with other posters are being deleted.

    Yes, if you quote a post and then that first post is deleted because it contains an insult, it only makes sense to delete your post, too. Correct?

    Interesting. Who specifically was insulted? Does it seem to you that we are getting a little too sensitive on this board?

    Well, it depends on the post, doesn't it? But if someone posts "So-and-so is a jerk." And before a mod sees it and deletes it, you quote that post and say "I agree ..." Then your post would need to be deleted, too. It only makes sense.

    Got it....but not sure why my last post was deleted when the poster I was agreeing with made no rule-breaking statement in the post I agreed with. Do you see where I'm coming from?

    You bring up a good point here......just to clarify, most reported posts are by a mod, not another poster. Posters on TH are a tough bunch who don't tell on each other.

    I've been here since day one and never reported anyone. Its not worth my time or effort. It was the Wild West here in the mid to late 90's. PD and Falstaff got into some epic battles back then on the regular Swamp Gas forum. This place is very tame now.

    You don't explain here so I don't know what to say. We rarely have posts reported from posters. There have been isolated incidences where a poster is angry or frustrated with the mods so reports a bunch of posts but that's rare and not the norm.
