Drama Is Done By All

First off, a huge thanks to anyone and everyone who volunteers to be a moderator on any site that includes more than a handful of people. As someone who was an administrator and moderator for a growing home school support site, I can attest that it is a difficult and sometimes unrewarding job. Drama...

Re: Help And Self Moderation

Hmmm. Once again our hardworking leaders are asking that chatters let them do their job: you know, to let them moderate the room; telling us that we need to be patient, especially with new chatters (I wonder how many possible members have been scared away over the years because of just a single pers...

Re: Dissertation Participants

Hi Holly,
I, too, wonder if you can offer this online. I would be more than happy to participate in your study, but I do not do well over the phone (I have problems processing aural input/information).

Re: Appreciation!

So true, Rainbow. Once a whining brat always a whining brat. Or not. Never know someone's total story, so I also take that into consideration. But if someone just keeps going on and on about the same old stuff I begin to wonder just what they are getting out of it (other than annoying others that is...

Re: Appreciation!

So well said. I, too, wish that some would realize that if there is a moderator present in the room and that there is a problem going on, that said moderator is well aware of the situation even if some think that they are not (for one reason or another, or because the moderator is momentarily AFK of...

Re: Think of Others Too

Know why I wrote that?  Because more and more people keep coming to me to complain about one thing or another, even though I keep telling them to tell a moderator, speak up, or IGGY whomever is causing them grief. Ad Nausea. I wish more people would tell a moderator, but am told that they do not thi...

Think of Others Too

Below are my definitions of two similar words: Kind – Being generous and considerate Nice – Being pleasant and likable. Kindness is more inherent. People who are kind emphasize with others’ situations.  Someone who behaves this way does so because they know that it is the right thing to do. It...

Re: Regarding Mike3161

I have had to read this more than once to fully understand what was going on, and from what I can tell more than one person was chiming in with some inappropriate comments. Of course, all things are up for interpretation, and being that we are not face-to-face it is difficult to know for sure whethe...

Re: To the Susan Haters

That this nonsense is still going on boggles the mind. I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but some people are so toxic that after just one encounter with them is more than enough. And since whomever has not stopped then I say go for the jugular and cut them off/out of this room. Maybe ...
