Default Whats up with our moderators?

Several months ago, I sent a request to change my username to something less political...Not only did that not happen, but I never even get a response. I chalked that up to difficulty with the forum software and forgot about it.

Recently, I requested a thread I had started be locked because it was going a direction I did not care for. Instead it was deleted, many hours after the request. Again, no explanation.

Why can't our moderators at least send us a PM letting us know that our request was considered? Instead, we just find out later that the mod's not only did not follow our wishes, but felt we were not important enough to even let us know why?

I am disappointed by the staff of this forum, and feel that they owe more to the participants than to either ignore them or act against their wishes....especially without at least a PM to explain why.

I'm done. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to rant, even though this thread will probably be deleted soon, again, without explanation. Either that, or I'll be banned...Fun times.

I should be a mod. I'm on here everyday anyway.

They've never been particularly communicative about their actions. You get used to it.

I read that novel some years ago at the behest of an erstwhile girlfriend; I rather enjoyed the suspense leading up to finding out who John Galt was. Other than that I have no comment as I thought the novel was somewhat contrived.

As for name change, all I could suggest is that maybe you should just join under another name and then refer to yourself as the former whatever (who had 592 msgs), just as a way to continue.

I agree with you, but a Mod should give a reason why they removed a post or something a long those lines. As a person who has moderated forums in the passed, I have notified people why they were warned, banned, post removed, or moved, etc. It is just a common courtesy.
