    After a loss criticism will come and is fully warranted.

    However, the pervasion of that thru every post on every topic is not warranted and will be dealt with.

    Or better still, an automatic suspension for any non-Geelong supporter who comes onto our board and deliberately incites a shit fight. Time to be tough and adopt a zero tolerance approach. No first warnings!

    On the Geelong board.... we can live with it within reason. But opposition supporters have to respect the Geelong board culture! Not sure if it is still happening, but opposition supporters were getting pinged for trivial things on the Hawks board.

    Yeah, the actual problem imo is just opposition supporters that come here purely to start shit. I don't actually mind what or who comes here or if they even have an overall critical/negative tone but they need to be adding to the discussion or there's no point having them.

    Anyone can pick Geelong from the menu. There are plenty who come here only to just shit on the club and do nothing else, which speaks a lot loader then whatever club you have under your name.

    This is in no way a "whinge or moan about moderating/moderators", OK? Got it?

    How about a female mod for the Geelong board?

    Last time a Mod change was made there was a pool of 5 posters approached - 2 were female.

    They declined.

    So the current Mods positions were open to all genders.

    Thanks for your confidence Vdubs, but I moderate two other forums, a Sea Shepherd forum + a Stop Hunting Whales forum, that's enough moderating for me. Plus my approach is different ;) so it may not be suitable for BF :)

    Good stuff, I'm impressed.

    More should be like you!

    Happy to know you have there back.

    Thanks Catdog.

    I prefer animals to most people ;)

    They become very contentious at times, which is why I have the greatest respect for our mods.

    EDIT: That's why I think it's important to be respectful towards our mods. It's a difficult + thankless role, which requires a lot of time + effort.

    Just a little more respect.

    I like it here, but an attack / pack dog mentality seems to have insinuated itself over the last few years.

    Too often posters are attacked simply for expressing an opinion, and mocked without fair and reasonable discussion and debate of the opinion put forward.

    I have pondered leaving this site a couple of times in recent years because of the personal crap here, but have persisted in the hope it’d improve, but it seems to be a forlorn hope.

    I’d be interested to know if this is a wideheld view.

    If this was an archery contest you have just split the arrow that was already in the bullseye.

    I'm of a similar viewpoint to you. I don't see it changing.
