Thank you for taking time to answer the questions.
The problem here is that "common sense" hasn't reigned until now. Mods are not above reproach and criticism. In fact you are more accountable for your actions than the rest of us It would be nice to sweep all of what happened under the carpet and forget about it, but a lot of people have been hurt. Right now it looks as though The Cure has been aiding and abetting that abuse and hurt. I hope that's not the case, but it's colored how a lot of us feel about this band.
An apology for what happened before, and a promise that it will not happen again, would go a long, long way.
Yeah, those were *some* answers you got alright Meri, though I can’t say I’m surprised. And people who're "friends" with any of the mods here really have no right to tell everyone else to move on...
This is all very sad. There are fans who’ve become so fed up with what’s happened (the behavior of some of the mods) here the last couple of days (weeks?) that they don't want to be fans anymore. It bothers me to think of all the people who’ve been genuinely hurt by this. I don't blame the BAND for any of this, but if I find out that Robert doesn't care about what's happened here or he 'says' as much, I'm not sticking around for anymore of this inexcusable foolishness from some of the mods, who delete posts, edit profiles, and delete user accounts, with NO REASONABLE explanation as to WHY. NONE of the moderators are above reproach, though it seems some of them like to think so.
People are left wondering what’s going on because the threads with all the *pertinent information* were deleted by *someone* with a personal bias. People don’t come here to be dicked around by moderators, but that’s exactly what I saw and experienced for myself the last few days. It’s not right, what some of you moderators have done here… and with WHOM did all this start? GRANNVILLE HARRIS.
And what is it with these mods who type in all caps? Unless… they’re all the same person. Shocking, really… Let me be clear that my intention is not to cause needless strife. However, if the person(s) who is behind all this trouble is reading this: I hope you’re pleased with all the mischief and sadness you’ve caused. WAY TO HAVE A CONSCIENCE. I can assure you that I am not alone in my thoughts and my observations on this. Those of you who want to ignore this problem (because you haven’t been on the receiving end) are free to do so, however, this issue is FAR FROM BEING OVER. Share
AND THESE WERE DELETED WHY EXACTLY?
RE: TO AN EARLIER POST THAT SHELLY D. MADE WHICH GOT DELETED FOR NO GOOD REASON:
By whom. I wonder?
Keith who relinquished what now?
I don't think anyone's 'relinquished' anything. Some of the moderators here are CLEARLY ABUSING their authority and that's NOT okay. What are some people being banned for? For expressing an opinion? Something that they believe in? Something that they are not alone in thinking?
This place should not be run like a DICTATORSHIP, but from the looks of it that's EXACTLY what's happening. Fair and impartial my ass, moderators. I would stay impartial too, were it not for what I've seen.
If a moderator is CLEARLY banning, or deleting somone's posts, based on their own *personal dislike* of that person, or what that person says, what do you think that means for everyone else who posts here??! THIS ISN'T JUST ABOUT A PERSONAL TIFF, OR ABOUT JUST ONE PERSON BEING BANNED. I don't understand why anyone would choose to remain silent about this problem. *sigh*

You know, I'm really not sure how old some of these moderators are... but I'm willing to bet at least one of them is not over the age of 15. I don't understand why some people are being targeted (banned) when they're simply expressing their opinions. Everyone has a right to express their opinion, in a democracy at least.
A FAIR and DESERVED response about this problem would have kept it from reaching the point that it has... oooh the rascaldom.

Re: um, I didn't see any "Grammar Nazis" no.
Peoples posts are being deleted for no apparent reason... After what I've seen, I can only conclude that one of the moderators here is not over the age of 16, or one would hope.
What's striking to me is that most of the people here don't seem to give a shit. This will affect you also, as long as you post here, and as long as these moderators who love displaying their maturity keep up this conduct.
SEE FRONT PAGE. LOL
