Your efforts were appreciated, while I realize your ability to effect teh changes people wanted was limited.

Thanks for that. I'll admit there was a bit of heavy handed moderation at points in the past, but it was easy to do when Andy R. had a vision for this online community and worked directly with his volunteers to try and make that vision a reality. Since he sold the Buzz there has been very minimal communication on the backside of the forum. Hopefully things will change soon.

As BGillespie and I noted, we've seen this happen on an even bigger forum that was bought out by VerticalScope. Even that one had some heavy moderation, but the owners had a vision and were personally involved. They blogged their own projects and paid writers to report on live events and bring informative tech reviews.
When it was sold (reportedly for 5-6 figures), the past owner promised that "Nothing will change."


He was correct. NOTHING has changed.
Communities change, and forums need to change with them. It takes a human's passion and right or wrong decisions to keep things living.

As a volunteer moderator (I've been one and it's sometimes thankless), you are involved to keep building this community you love. It's hard to step away.


I'm not holding my breath.

You don't get to make up your own "alternative" facts anymore!


Nice outing yourself for the millennial you are-everything boils down to race, sex and class! Good luck on winning an election on that bs. Nothing like hurling insults at someone to try and prove your misguided opinions of the differing levels of socialism. Cayo you stubbornly defended Venezuela for years but now backtrack? You don't look so smart anymore buddy...


I always know when a Leftist has been defeated, they immediately cry racism, racism and I know they are admitting defeat!

Name calling is what you do when you don't have an argument.

Bitch me tripping here! Typical repose of the lost man walking circles and can't find his way out of the woods as anger sets in.

This is what one says when they have the lack of intelligence to understand and get the other side of an argument. You don't have to agree to understand..... Right???

But hey once the liberals impose a curfew on men so women feel safe at night, then you'll get my pov!

I agree flying off the handle is poor form.It gets extremely frustrating to deal with people who traffic so freely in misinformation and seemingly have no rational basis to their views. I assure you I know infinitely more about this topic than the respondents .When you have to resort to flag waving or religion in a debate,you may win the popularity contest but you have lost the intellectual argument.Okie completely distorted what I said,a form of lying.I suggested comparing our current form of bad capitalism ( supply side)to the results yielded on quality of life indexes in democratic socialist countries/social democracies like Scandanavia\northern Europe.I never said we should emulate ANY country in Latin America.

My defense of Chavez for years is based on exposing our undemocratic actions intervening in other country's elections and governance,and I appreciate what he was trying to do and the context events were occurring in.Maduro is in a clinging to power phase and doing undemocratic things,but any version of events that does not ,at least ,acknowledge our meddling and it's impacts is bullshit.

Repubs claiming not to be rascists,are you kidding?You elected Trump on race baiting over immigration.His campaign was run by Steve Bannon,champion of the alt-right.And is currently under the influence of Steven Miller.

Move it to the eddy ,that's fine with me.
