    Well, I certainly don't. I say the more information the better and bad info is best handled by good info. The market doesn't work without good information and a separate, unlinked, thread doesn't do it. Nor do I think that selling gear is a protected, special class of activity on this board, or at least I hope not.

    But I've covered all this ground before in the thread where you guys imposed the new rule.

    If members get a vote I'd suggest that you need more variety in the world view in the mods. All good people but I'd like to see someone who when you say "Large Format Photographer" *doesn't* immediately think of Ansel Adams. I'd love to see someone who doesn't shoot landscapes etc at all, in fact!

    Wow, 3 pages of posts on somethng that each member can and ought to manage on his or her own.

    If you do not care for a particular forum member's posts, simply go to "setting" on the top right, then under "My Account" select the "Edit Ignore List" and put that member's username in there.
    You will never see a post that might offend you and by doing so you will make the moderators' life so much simpler.

    No need for autocratic actions when a mere 20 seconds can permanently solve the problem on a personal level. Personal responsibility why relegate that to others?

    The ignore list only works if you're logged in.

    And the board seems to kick regularly, me at least every hour. I don't log in a fraction of the time I use the site.

    The trolls do react well to kicking them back in the teeth with personal insults(self modding does work), but those result in just more moderation duties for the mods. I have seen more posters effectively insulting the board trolls, which is most likely the reason for this moderation change.

    I disagree. A moderator's "world view" is irrelevant. The only view they need to have when performing their duties is of the forum rules.

    Yes, a few years ago this forum was quite a different place to visit and contribute.

    How so Merg? Other than a couple of hundred fewer regular users, what differences do you perceive?

    O.K., well, that still supports my point, doesn't it? If the *rate* of problem posts has remained constant you'd still be overworked just because people are posting almost three times as often as they did just a few years ago. Your house may be underwater but it may not be bigger waves--the ocean level is just higher. Those little waves that never bothered you before are now crashing into your bedroom window.

    Sounds like you don't need one new moderator but two or three times the current number--just to catch up with past growth.
