It's time for a change of mods

I think it's time that the current crew stood down. JLP is becoming increasingly pedantic and petty. Kes is taunting another poster for no reason (other than he criticies Queen) and WeeMann labelled me as racist for making a completely innocent and humorous remark about the Welsh (and no, it wasn't about sheep).

The three together, well I feel that they are now incapable of independant thought and are incapable of being fair for fear of upsetting the other two.

Get lost, I want that tag. :P

Here is what a moderator (WeeMann) called me a racist for today.

Does anyone else seriously think that comment deserves the label 'racist? Does a smiley have to be added to every post on here? You know, there is a lot of racist people out there...but this is just political correctness gone crazy. I am very serious about this. He should resign, it's ridiculous.

There is no point in complaining, they just group together and everything is white-washed. All we can do is register our dis-quiet in threads like this.

Not racist at all. I love Wales and Welsh history. Very much over the top to label it so.

I do agree that we need a new mod. I have previously requested that kes step down, even if it is because of the length of his incumbency. I don't really have an issue with weemann, though the above might show that he is a little to keen to throw around his mod weight. I have said both privately and publicly, that i don't believe there is anyone currently that could do the admin job as well as JLP. So i would say only Kes should be the one to step down.

Absolutely spot on. That's exactly what he is doing. He is hiding behind those buttons to make an unfair accusation against an innocent poster. The worst part of all of this is that there is no point complaining. JLP is incapable of taking it seriously and Kes will just give some long winded analogy that means nothing to anyone.

I thought that weemann is being ridiculous about what you posted. I thought he was better than that.
Lol at Kes and his analogies. But its' a bit like being thrown out of a plane and you land in Wales and you can't understand the road signs. :lol:

Why can't the admin of this site (JLP) take these complaints seriously? Is he not bothered that people won't PM him with these issues anymore?

The question was, why can't you take the complaints seriously? Do you think I deserved to be called a racist today?

Hmmm. like it or not, you are the true admin. Ian is more technical and Nick only comes on the site to sell more tat.

What i would like though is that as a group you guys go away and examine fd's request. Maybe a new mod is needed to give an alternate view. I believe Kes has said that you 3 do think alike.

Just food for thought?

I do feel the board needs a new mod. As this board continues to grow, so will the erm arguements.
