    How do you feel Brown Cafe is moderated? Too much? Not enough?

    You can choose more than one answer, but only the top two count.

    Moderation is the process of eliminating or lessening extremes. It is used to ensure normality throughout the medium on which it is being conducted

    There should be one thread where we can let it fly with no moderation. I would be curious as to how that thread would end up looking.

    like this......^%$#&(*^$^&(^#%*))&.......because that's how we are used to typing the bad words. Hard to break a habit!

    Well, it looks like at least five mods voted anyways, and they selected the fourth choice.

    It seems to depend on what side of the bed the mods get up on. Some posts I would bet money on being censored get through while others that aren't bad at all get booted. I hate to say it but it seems to depend on who you are or who is complaining about a post. Kind of like life in general.:dissapointed:

    In a way, I agree with Rod. I don't think it is overly or underly moderated. I think it is humanly moderated. Meaning no one is perfect. Mods have good days and bad days. Posters have good days and bad days.

    This is a really big factor. If no one complains there is a pretty good chance a post will be never noticed.

    I wish I could vote. :sad-little:

    I think the best form of moderating is self-moderating. It has been noted that the overall quality of posts here has gone down in recent weeks. There are those threads that I do not bother with for this reason.

    I have no problem with spirited discussion.

    I do have a problem with profanity. Profanity reflects a limited vocabulary.

    I agree, and I don't even like when people try to get by the filters, like using "F' followed by &^%$.

    "I think the best form of moderating is self-moderating."

    Let's put substitutions into that premise...."I think the best form of
    satisfying is self-satisfying." Yep, it works as a good general rule base.

    So to all you that whine to the moderators about a post that offends you-- just move on. You sound like a little 3rd grader when you go crying to the mods that Johnny said a bad word. No one likes a tattle tale. Go to a post you can get into like "where can I get UPS socks?". There are enough mods to take necessary action--- if needed.:peaceful:
