    I was talking about myself. I'm definitely not level headed.

    In response to that, I say that images are generally more offensive when combined with words, rather than having them solitary. Besides, your "joke" isn't that offensive. Too soon? I'd say so, but not *that* offensive.

    I think the mods are doing a good job! I would never want to deal with half of the bull shit they do! Kudos to the mods - They try to make this site as enjoyable as possible for everyone IMO.

    Yeah, that was in bad taste ;) However, you're usually a pretty good community member, so, I personally let it slide. What we try to do is to sculpt the memberbase into something better than the rest of the internet. When someone new arrives, and starts posting psychobabble dribble, it's best to nip them in the ass with a ban saying, "Yeah, that may go for the rest of the internet, but please keep it to a bare minimum here."

    MVP's are long-time members who have contributed a LOT to the site, and since Chris can't have 80 guys on the mod-team :lol:, he created the MVP group. Yeah, it lead to some bitching and whining (Oh, why did HE get to be an MVP, and not me?), but that's human nature. What to do :lol:

    I don't think we can add anyone else to this group, given our lack of powers, so it really hasn't come up lately :erk:

    Honestly, when you compare this place to some boards where the rules are insanely draconian, and the moderators can (and do) perma-ban people for the most trivial infractions, the code of conduct on here really isn't that unreasonable.:shrug:

    I for one welcome the "over moderation" i think alot of the older members will agree with me when i say that over the last year or so there has been an influx of general douchebaggery. i feel that the best way to stamp this out is with the iron fist of the mods.

    Some of the suspensions seem trivial, but I'm glad that people get suspended here instead of banned.
