    I had some events happen today that actually made me sit down and write something. Doesn't happen as often as I would like but I got it out. @TygerTyger suggested I share this blog article I wrote today since it seemed it would be a good fit here.

    Thanks for sharing! It's a good observation you make..... a thought-provoking look at what a discussion forum should-- and shouldn't-- be.

    Thinking is an abstract process, sometimes thinking about one thing you realise 'another thing'. Usually people like to share the new thing in the discussion that helped you think it up as somewhere there will be some kind of tenuous link that those people might just get....plus its good to share, mostly.

    Right now I am thinking....I need coffee.

    I got banned over there, but I set out to after The 1 moved some of my posts to the outside or whatever they call it over there.
    It was in a non vaping related thread. I think they ticked him off politically....
    Either that or he did not understand them?

    I told him to consume excrement and expire....

    Been on forums ever since before the net was a thing and decided that getting my first ever ban from there was a moral imperative.

    I'm really glad you were encouraged to share this here. I enjoyed your post.

    Here, we see this with most threads, where the discussion strays from the topic at hand. IMO, that's how "community" forms, because how else would we know very much about most things vaping, much less, about each other? Like you said, if nothing being said is hurting, or blatantly offending anyone, why stop it from happening? Very rarely do mods here intervene on a thread solely to try and move it back to topics at hand, usually if the conversation has become crude, or completely disruptive, you might see someone step in, you don't want to chase off someone looking for help, or make others wade through 7 pages of arguing over nothing related.

    There's a time, and a place for rules thumpin', topic changes, mid convo, are not one of 'em. Most of us landed here because of the 42 pages of rules and Mods with a Cause. We grew tired.

    Go find your Florida Hoosier pal and bring 'em over!

    And welcome. .

    Excellent suggestion

    I find it ironic that the folks that helped me the most at Brand X forum are now over here...

    Oh yeah. I still see names I recognize coming over here. I know they have their own diehards, but for a groups of us at a time, enough was enough. Our buddy got banned there, we all came here. LOL, we got told to stop our grousing. [​IMG]

    A good moderator should be like a good cop: ready to step in if needed, to restore order, but one who's a friend, not a boss.

    I went by the post from f1r3b1rd but I couldn't find the original. I think the one I just mentioned reads like it might be the whole thing if that is any help...

    All in good fun my friend and no sleep for me until much later. I told my Sweetie when she said I should take a nap that they just aren't for me. Fucks up my sleep. I am not as young as I think but gone are the days of getting two hours of sleep after a day of work and a night at the bar to get up and do it all over again~!
