I'm IN!!!

Really though , the only moderator needed is one who will moderate solely RokJox's posts.

I volunteer.

YOU had another meltdown, another classic example of an old guy taking the internet waaaay too seriously. Try self-moderation. As in drink less, think less, and post less.

Try not to think of Supertopo as your full time job.

Your request to have the pictures removed is legitimate and should be taken seriously by the poster, however I think you might want to reconsider your participation on ST. This is a tough group, no holds barred, you've got to have a thick skin and based on your past comments and this recent incident, I really don't think this is the place for you.

Part of me strongly agrees with the "no mods" sentiment expressed in every post above.

But this climbers' forum, no less than MySpace, has shown a real capacity for runaway cyber-bullying. Fun for some.

i don't think the site needs a moderator but i think there needs to be tougher community standards for how people are treated. it shocks me that some of the abuse here is condoned by others. what's also surprisingly tolerated are those who literally try to impede people's life progress by posting personal information about them. someone's post pisses you off so you try to sabotage them by posting personal details? CREEPY

A moderator would not be the end of dissension or spontaneity on the site.

I am proposing a single voice that we voluntarily can appeal to when we feel someone is going over the top, someone is being harmed, or standards of basic decency are being violated.

Chris Mac cannot, by his own admission provide such a voice.

A person such as Happygirrl should not have to go to the owner of this site when she has a problem There rightfully SHOULD be a lesser or lower choice available to us as a group. A SECOND option, rather than a LAST option.

I would have NO PROBLEM asking someone such as Karl Baba to advise as to whether a problem is "over the top" and I doubt he would change much of the interactions that occur here.

But when I DID ask SEVERAL times, and over a TWO MONTH period for a reasonable request to be filled!

I got a un-equivable answer from the fellow I was asking it of. That was; "I WILL NOT DELETE ANYTHING!" (Emphasis added).

I then had to go to the owner of the site, who like the president of ANY organization, was hard to reach.

That he agreed with me, shows that my ORIGINAL request was valid and reasonable, and that the poster who angered me was pigheaded and completely wrong, (he DID delete the objectionable materials like I said he would).

But it took TWO (!!!!!) EMAILS from THE OWNER, TO ACHIEVE IT, as the "Village Idiot" couldn't even take the OWNERS request and respectfully comply with it.

We need a local source who actually reads this forum, which the owner tells me he mostly does not. Doesn't even want to. And he's right.

A decent individual would NOT destroy this site's individuality or spontaneity. And if he did, we could simply ask him to step down and appoint another decent individual.

How about just someone to nix all the christian republican douche spray? Climbing climbing climbing! Keep it to climbing people. Your politiposts are so boring and end up bumping good climbing material off the front page. I come here because I want CLIMBING info, not ignorant republican brain goo. Isn't there a teabag party website for you people?

Just forget the moderator idea, you think this is the first time it's been brought up? This place is just the typical climber campfire, rumor, gossip, friendship, truth and fun, you can sit by the fire or look for solitude in the trees. This same stuff happens at FaceLift, live and in person.
