I agree. It seems to me that some mods favor some posters over others. I had PMed Jacob at one point about some of my posts getting moderated when I really hadn't posted anything offensive (and my posts were referred to as "personal attacks" and he replied that the mods were not perfect. I had pointed out that it seemed some forum members were given a "pass" to write nasty things to and about others without getting moderated. He just said to report anything I see in the forum that seemed offensive. I wrote back that I had done that in the past and nothing happened.
You must have typed a semicolon in front of the close paren--that's the code for winky: ; )@JASFLALMT wrote:

to op, someone prob didnt like the idiot word. im more surprised that u are still giving time to posts from june. its oct. time to move on.
to person op quoted. long windy posts really should be shortened. straight & to the point. mods prob saw length of posts & gave up reading them.
You're right about moving on but I was very unhappy about being moderated when I felt under served by the moderators back then. I already knew why this post was moderated, I just think that fair is fair. Those posts had multiple attacks and were clearly aimed at me. My post had a single attack word and wasn't clearly aimed at anyone.
By the way, I still haven' heard back from the moderator. Other than obviously my thread was moved to here.
Okay, 2 days ago I had a post moderated where I said:
Time to block somebody. I'm more interested in the food discussion rather than an idiot ranting.
Now this was said after many people had posted including a discussion about food. I was not at all specific about who I was referring to and it might have even been a general statement about nobody in the thread at all. I responded back that I kind of understood why I was moderated but then I asked why if that was unacceptable, why 2 posts from June that I reported as personal attacks on me were not also moderated at the time. I considered these to be much worse than what I said. Here are the 2 posts. Tell me what you think:
PS, they could give a rat's arse about your total interaction with Associates, only the circumstance upon which their product was "sold" to you, as a customer. Not understanding the shop itself really freaks me out about so-called shoppers. But, as a grown person who doesn't know how to say "Whoa, that was awkward" along with that certain look it takes to get the point across and having to ask a "mommy" on a forum what to do about it says you absolutely need someone to help you get that hair out of your face! You should go back to the store and thank her for helping you to better understand the world.
If you just want opinions that agree with your own then why are you asking? Just report her for moving your hair out of your face; report her to her direct supervisor at Home Depot and to the Department Manager at Home Depot and to the Manager at Home Depot. Imagine that conversation. Report her to the mystery shopping company also. If you feel like you've been affronted by someone then you should report them to someone, especially if you can't bring yourself to report them to themselves! Get some help. Who knows, the hair brushing this time could become an assault next time. And just imagine the other customers who she's been brushing their hair out of their face, you could help them too and future non-compliant receivers of hair brushing!
eta: And report me to this forum for informing you of all of the things that you don't know about this assignment, the client, the hapless retailer and life's important issues! And I will report myself for handing you this valuable mystery shopping and life skills information on a silver platter and not charging you a fee and a bonus.
I have not received an answer back from the moderator yet. Any opinions?
...but has returned and still allowed to write about subjects most of us are not interested in.
But I don't want to get into another big argument with you about it. I will drop it if you will.
I've admitted that I made a mistake by calling someone a name. I wish you could do the same. However, I'm done arguing about this after this post. I have my opinion on what constitutes an attack on me which apparently is at odds with other's, including the moderator's opinion. I generally don't let things like this bother me because I've done a lot of customer service work and I thought I'd heard it all. Apparently I haven't.
