A Review of the Moderators
      18/12/10 09:14 PM
Hello

I appreciate that this may be a contentious thread but I feel it is long overdue.

I am a casual user of this forum, as you can see from my post count. Music is my first love and it will be my last. I enjoy playing and recording and have found the advice offered through various threads on the forum to be, in general, excellent.

However, there are cracks appearing. Cracks that are steadily expanding and which are surprisingly not caused by the usual subjects. And these cracks are beginning to make the place and magazine much less appealing.

I don't think I'm alone in thinking this but I feel a number of the moderators are creating a very bad atmosphere with their postings. Their contributions to many threads are simply to put people down, patronise and lock or delete threads in which they have a differing opinion. I feel that many of them are not remaining impartial in their role. They are clearly letting their personal opinions cloud their judgements and actions. Their interaction with forum members is often of a superior, aggressive, bullying an worst of all, ignorant, nature. More often that not, threads can quickly decay due to the mods input. I often get the feeling that, in order to get some successful advice here, one has to first become accepted by the mods into their small gang; and if this fails to happen, the poster is quickly turned upon.

So what I'd like to know is; am I alone in thinking this? Does anyone else feel that something is wrong? Who are the mods? How were they chosen? Are theyreally the best people for the job or is it time for a reshuffle?

If I am out of order posting this, then I'm certain I will quickly be told and this thread locked, as this appears to be a recent trend around here. However, if I am talking sense, please let me know.
