    the problem with moderation status, is none of the posts were getting approved, none of my posts were approved until this topic came about, I also could not PM anyone, not even "VCA forum Staff" so your wrong. it's for all intensive purposes a ban. moderated status is pretty much crap. you either suspend, or you ban. period. removing ones ability to even PM is insane. I was on that moderated status since I posted the VCA letter of doom, which was posted on another web forum all together.

    I agree, they should get suspended for a week if they act really stupid. I don't know why a moderator would want to waste their time sifting through peoples post.

    Ok some of you guys were on mod and ban. Flatout, Fixed

    And Virgina, I didn't know you were on mod until you posted here, and we checked the queue daily, we would go weeks without a post in mod queue.

    Patience please, this stuff takes time, as I come on here between plan rides and meetings.

    Pass. You couldn't even answer the question about Maurice. It has not changed and the fact you want them to grovel back to get unbanned/unmoderated is still pathetic.

    That makes a lot of sense. To be honest, I know I wasn't checking it as often as I could. As to to the time period you were put into moderation, too many people had access to admin account and things were happening with no accountability. The method I had for checking it was cumbersome. Thanks to Don, I can quickly check moderated posts and post them up.

    on that note....moderating each post is inefficient, takes unnecessary time etc. bottom line, I would either suspend people or ban hammer after so many suspensions. I don't have the time to weed through every single post some troll might be making. if they **** up, warn. again, short time out, again, longer timeout, again a really long timeout, once more and ban hammer.

    note: I am presently a moderator for several other forums, work in the IT industry, and was the admin of several until I was no longer interested in their subjects. I have lots of forum experience, I've seen every way a forum could be run and then some. moderated status is stupid.

    Maurice is not banned. He had been but was re-instated the next day after resignations. No one is asking for them to beg/grovel, simply contact us so we can rectify.

    I think 100 posts on this topic is enough. If anyone feels they are improperly modded or banned, please write [email protected] and we will work with you on rectifying the situation with, as we have with ~30+ so far. Thanks for you patience and understanding
