Neither did I actually, Carol. I didn't understand why Malcolm said that?

As a refugee from 'another place' which has been ruined by Mods given too much power and who are far to eager to exercise that power, this forum seems to have got things just about right and I would hate to see that change.
And I wish to second your emotions there Old Dog.

Never been on a forum where 'The Mafia' reigned but it sounds appalling.
We tend not to suffer from that on the genealogy sites.

Well all I can say is good luck to whoever gets the job, I have a feeling they'll be needing it.

Re: Anyone fancy helping out?

As I see it the 'job' is for cleaners and tidiers-up ! who will be beyond reproach and innocent of any perceived wrongdoing...now how can that be a problem ?

Not a problem from where I'm sitting - even though I'm not at all comfortable

I was on a forum once - I joined it at the request of the chap who started it. I did my best to help it find it's feet by thinking up various threads to start. There was this time I started a thread about my enjoyment of scrabble.

I was having quite a lively conversation with another member when the forum 'boss' stepped in making sarcastic remarks and ridiculing us. . As a result of this, the member I was having the conversation with quit the forum and I followed soon after.
That forum 'Boss' used his POWER in the wrong way by ridiculing the subject his members were talking about - just because he was the' Boss' and he could!

There's hardly anybody on his forum left to ridicule now...
