    May I just note that I find it a bit of strange that The Devil's thread was locked for ordinary people while two of the mods felt moved to add their comments.

    Alright I'll open it. Could be just co-incidence, or would that not suit your conspiracy theories?

    Well, I would also add that a few tangential posts in the thread which ultimately got James' back up (unecessarily in my opinion) could have been deleted and the otherwise perfectly affable "We Love Tony" thread could have been left open.

    If James wishes to post his intention to leave, he is by definition opening the subject up for discussion.

    Moderating this forum may be tricky at times, but that sort of goes with the territory IMO.

    At what exactly? The originally closed thread or James's announcement?

    If you want to love Tony feel free to contribute here:

    Tony lovers this way.....

    Re-opened at about 6pm, after I'd had time to sort it out.

    Wha conspiracy theories? The facts were as I stated.

    Btw, my post was not intended to get the thread open, I just thought it was not in the best of tastes to exclude us peeps from a discussion when the mods were happy to express their views.

    I also enjoyed them quite a bit. But it has to be said, I'm not the one who has to moderate them!

    It was mostly inane drivel by someone trying to justify his own finacial outlay, sad but true imo.

    Moderating is a thankless task. Frankly my heart sinks when I get home from work and see a number of "reported post on Zerogain" emails in my inbox.

    As for James, I would request that people regard departed members in the same light as banned members and kindly not discuss or make comments about them when they no longer post here. You know where to go to talk to him.

    I, for one, fully appreciate that Isaac.

    Perhaps this is good training for potential referees/umpires.

    I've no problems with that.........thats moderators are for, loking after the forum. Though the sudden loss of bub ...does ring a little odd. He had not to my knowledge posted a positive post for a long time, all the recent ones being of the dissing type or the fall back 15th level manner thing. As far as I can see if you live by the sword your likely to die by the sword. All those comment made by him ........

    Its fairly typical of a certain charactor type, We had a bloke at work [fire service] that was for ever playing practical jokes.....A night a punctures condom filled with water, strung over someones bed.......It didn't matter that all there gear got soaked. Just a big joke to the chap.....along with other things like I found my push bike at the top of the drill tower after an hours searching [everyone had gone home at the end of the shift]. The point being that when a group of us placed his car side ways in a garage, using a trolly jack..then placed all the stuff back in front of it to hide the car. He did not take it as a joke and tried to get everyone placed on a charge.....which didn't work asstation commander was also a victim of his wit.

    The point being is don't dish out what you can take.....or do unto others as you would have done unto you !

    As you say - live by the sword, die by the sword. While I am sorry to see bub leave he cant really complain about being called a liar by someone when he has called people liars for no reason in the past.

    Can we please stop discussing Bub, as Isaac has pointed out if he isn't here to defend himself it isn't appropriate. Departed members should be treated in the same manner as banned members.

    Can we close this thread then please? The topic is "modding 'the devil'" so it is just going to provoke continuing discussion.

    From the title, I thought this was a thread about upgrading a certain forum member. I wondered what you had in mind. Special mana sole slippers? :D
