    Bwaaaaaahahahahaha when I saw the title of this thread all I could see was Poll: Is John too..

    and I was trying to fill in the blanks while I waited for the page to load..
    Is John too..

    Nice for letting us play with his toys?
    tolerant of disgusting behaviour?
    fair to the guests here who are bogging down the site?
    sexy for his shirt? So sexy it hurts??

    LMAO I have nothing of substance to add to this thread.. I laugh at the tard trolls who come here and expect to be above the rules. A word of advice.. get over yourself and find a site with people like yourself so you can berate, belittle and bemoan each other.

    :rolleyes

    This is not a poll. It is a futile and immature attempt to instigate trouble.

    If anyone doesn't like the job that John and the mods do, go to the zoo or the insane asylum. That kind of havoc seems to suit some people best. Whoever wants to just start trouble, waste time and uselessly take up space will not be missed.

    I think that John's control on this site ENABLES open discussion. In many sites where the moderation is much looser, when an opposing opinion is stated, it is not only the opinion that gets attacked, but the person stating the opinion. A lot of John and the Mods actions are for the purpose of allowing us a place to state opinions, and engage in open exchange, without fear of personal attack. The promotes discussion as opposed to hurting it. Personally I have never posted anywhere else. It took me a long time lurking and seeing the respect that John and his Mods demand of their guests for the site and other guests, before i felt comfortable enough to put my thoughts down on such a public forum. I think John is doing an excellent job running this site, and the fact that we will no longer have to hear from Winter7 is even more proof of his competence.

    Looks to me like someone just wanted some attention. :rolleyes Either that or boredom struck and they wanted to stir the pot.

    This is a wonderful site, and I hope it stays just the way it is.

    You know, I find it an especially rude thing to say on a day when John is doing yet *another* update to accomodate all the traffic when he could just throw everyone off but him and his friends and not have to deal with it. I"m just thankful that John has this site and continues to make it better for the enjoyment of all.
