So it's a personal challenge to see how fair I can be, and also to change the dynamic of my relationships here and to start over , or something like that.

    I accept it Leila because it's so true with me, like the way I treated you on the american allegience thread was ridiculously rude and I am truely sorry for that, that was just plain ignorant and childlike.

    well thats actually a valid reason and seeming very sincere.


    This ad goes away when you register.

    idk, maybe i am...just thinking on it quickly...perhaps you would rise to the challenge, and perhaps it would be ok and i am looking at whats too obvious. idk.....it has very little to do with anything youve said to me specifically...more about the way you have interacted with alot of people.

    perhaps you should start with the self moderating for a month or two...and then see later. i think that theres usually need for more moderators, so probably you could try again.

    as for the fresh start that sounds good...

    I wasn't just being flip when I said I thought SAM would make a good mod, I think it would be good for him and IS. I remember when you first got here SAM lol I remember calling you doubting Thomas...you have grown so much. There are phases in growth and things sometimes negatives have to bubble up so they can be recognized and let go. I see how SAM has taken time today to rethink how his choices have deeply affected others. I have faith in SAM!

    me thinks youd have to change the user name at least !
    ha jk

    or maybe not kidding.
    a secret agent man as a mod on this forum....well theres a lot of people who come here...who d that might be a bit of strange chosen name.

    i suppose i am not bothered by it, its an odd UN...but heres a funny byte...when you first started posting here under your secret agent nom de plume
    every time i would see your user name i would hear a little bit of this song...only of course switched up with secret agent man.....ha my head s a funny place sometimes, thinking in song lyrics, and whatnot (especially the what not!?!)

    always freely associating

    this isn't going to end well....

    Just wait until the next person makes a thread about their "pre marital" sexual depravities, he'll be clamping down with all the righteous fury of a kiddy fiddling church

    Reformed troll? I think not

    I have to jump in and say this from experience (I am one of two administrators of SciFake.com and a few others) moderating is not about discipline, its about judgment and decisions made without previous prejudice, not an easy thing, to let things remain even if you dont like them, If you water down your forum by removing all conflicts or do not allow discussions to heat a bit, you are actually quelling growth of the site. The best advice I will give to you is dont over moderate, its the quickest forum killer there is.

    BUNNY VOTES YES! Does my opinion even matter or is it just the impotant people? WHATEVER BUNNY IS HERE TO STAY! I am not on very often and I guess I am still considered kinda new. However despite my lack of activity I know your username because I have seen it a million times before. So isn't that a good thing? BUNNY APPROVES (if anyone is even reading this)

    So SAM, You're actually one of the big reasons I went from a poster to a lurker about a year ago. We got into a scuff in a thread about sex. It turned into a completely unproductive slamming match with no substance. What really got me down was that it was on a brand new member's thread. And it made me sad for her to have to deal with all that bologna. So, I kinda took a back seat on IS, lest you decide to shove your claws into one of my postings.

    But, when this thread opens up to a poll, I will vote yes for you. Over the past year, I've seen the tone of your posts change, and I think you are genuinely committed to IS.

    And, It takes all kinds. Right? You're a very opinionated Catholic who isn't afraid to let his feelings be known. I respect that. I'm a very opinionated vegan who isn't afraid to let his feelings be known.

    All I would ask would be that you take it easy on the newly Indigo'd. Play nice with them. We're a sensitive breed.
    We must become the change we want to see.

    I will keep that in mind Lux, thank you for your comments and support. ok, if I was a catholic I would be in a catholic forum but I am not, so let's say I am more independent of the catholic church, but it's true in saying I am connected to it in terms of background.

    I agree that it takes all types because it's good for a forums "truth" and not to become stuck in a "typical" way of thinking, so diversity is good to challenge unchallenged ideas and beliefs but as you said greater care should be taken not to become hostile or disrespectful.

    Do not make S.A.M. moderator. There's loads and loads of trolling/bullying etc from him.

    Indeed. I just meant that it definitely influences your opinions, and the way you respond to things. Didn't mean to call ya something you're not!

    I agree that it takes all types because it's good for a forums "truth" and not to become stuck in a "typical" way of thinking, so diversity is good to challenge unchallenged ideas and beliefs but as you said greater care should be taken not to become hostile or disrespectful.
    Couldn't have put it better myself. I have found myself frequently agreeing with things you say... and when I don't, it usually spawns some sort of shift in my way of thinking. That's a good thing...

    That's exactly why I vote yup.

    Sam. you have my support. I go by my intuition rather than a history of your squabbles with h0bby1. You are a nice guy. I see this with your interaction online and you are always looking for opportunities to grow and learn. Sometimes you can jump on the bandwagon and kick a man when he's down, like you did with h0bby1. I always stand up for the little guy, i always stand up to the bullies actually. This is why I made SecretAgentWoman, because I did not like seeing the way you kicked h0bby1 when he was down. Gave you a temporary taste of your own medicine since GI was locked in a straight jacket. Can't you agree that I've always left you alone? Why? because other than that incident, I've never seen you be mean or nasty. But when the damage was done and h0bby1 was down for the count, you took every opportunity to get in some last minute pot shots. That's the past and we can sweep in under the rug... that is, unless you're still butt hurt about SecretAgentWoman and PixieDust24 lol

    So yes. I vote for S.A.M. I mean... he can't do a worse job than... hahaha j/k j/k i make funny.
