    Calling moderators at home about forum business.......grrrrrrr

    This is absolutely NOT cool. It is becoming increasingly common of late. This forum negatively impacts my personal life way too much as it is without having to deal with phone calls and messages left on my answering machine. There is absolutely NOTHING happening on this forum that is so urgent that it requires this kind of invasion of my home life.
    Thanks,

    I know about this first hand in another context. People have no qualms about burning up your time with their burning issues.

    One good thing is that as a result I've largely stopped--and got out of the habit--of answering my phone.

    Hard to believe anybody would do that, so sorry to hear it.

    Agreed, and it's sad that it has to be said. For all the bluster of disagreements, it's just a forum, people talking...

    Suspend them. No logins to the forum at all for a week. They're grounded.
    Heck, if I wanted to get a moderator's attention, I'd send home-roasted coffee if a PM didn't suffice. Current coffee is from Costa Rica, India, and Bangladesh (the last two are both monsooned).

    You idiots leave the Moderators alone.
    I think there should be a published policy against this with immediate forum banning if someone does this form of harassment.
    My 2 cents.


    PS: Sorry that Kirk (and is family at home) has had to deal with these kinds of RUDE people.

    When I ran my little obnoxious forum people called in death threats at home.

    There is nothing on an amateur social forum that couldn't be addressed in a few hundreds words as an email. Anything beyond that is rude.

    thanks all.

    Let me be clear please. I have a lot of friends on this forum and I welcome their calls anytime. Oftentimes the forum comes up in conversation. That IS cool. But calling me up because you want your thread moderated IS NOT f*****g cool. Ken got the same call and he is on vacation.
    Thanks,

    Make it a no-warning, permanent, lifetime ban, under any and all future different user names! Put it in the user agreement and don't look back.
