I'm at a complete loss here Scott. There must be some very nasty PM's going back and forth between certain people here on WIX. I just don't see the nastiness. I have stated before that I don't ever personally attack, insult, be-little or threaten anyone here on WIX, not mods nor members. (unless provoked by the 1% who don't get how to be respectful) I certainly have gotten heated a bit at times, been insulted a bit at times and I have pissed it out with a few here at times, but it never has gotten out of hand in my opinion. We have always shook hands and made up in the end. Even guys like Bill Greenwood are harmless. So he's into what he's into, Big deal, I've never read a post from Bill or anyone here publically threaten anyone. I've been accused of having a thin skin at times, yah! big deal, I guess I do, but I can take what I dish out.
The bottom line is this is your website and you certainly can and will do what you want Scott, it's been a wonderfully fun site for me to play on. And BTW, I'm still trying to retire from posting, not because of anything I have done or anything anyone else has done, I just need to work more and play on the internet less. But again, I keep reading posts from a few stating WIX is turning into a soap opera, I just don't see it. I see a few flare ups every now and then and a few locked threads every now and then. If the mods have to lock things up no big deal in my book, I stated my opinion a while back and my opinion means nothing other than rambling. (like this post
) There's NOT ONE soul here I dislike, we're all old enough to be responsible and respectful ... RIGHT?!!! ... a little joking and self-teasing is good for the soul.
Scott you do what you feel you need to do. I'll respect any decision you make as I'm sure everyone else will as well. But again, I'm really not seeing the big mess here. I personally think everyone here on WIX have been great people, members and mods.
And no .... so far I haven't been warned, put on probation or even hinted I was crossing any lines. (disclaimer for those who think I'm sucking up to Scott ...
Be nice all and have fun. If you got a problem with anyone, just simply PM them and ask them to chill out. Don't make it public.
Scott stick around and keep your great website running ... Hell, I'll be a moderator too if you need more help. I'll have a soft voice, yet carry a big stick.
& WTF's this "off-topic" area, I've never been there, is this where all the in-fighting is going on? ... or is it "in-breeding"?
BTW, I'm learning WAY too much here from so many people much smarter than me .... We ALL can work out any problem Scott or the rest of the mods are having difficulty with. There's too much to lose here if this site is closed. If I'm one of the problems, I'll be glad to be banned from posting .... JUST AS LONG AS I CAN STILL LURK!!!!! ....
