Because I invited you to read it all even though a good sampling of it is available in this thread. I now believe this was a judgement error on my part. Thinking you'd see it and recognize the problems in order to stop stirring the pot, you've used it as a means to further insert yourself into this situation. I just went back and re-read the entire thread before posting this so I feel comfortable in responding: Your condescending insinuation that you care more than the mods/admins about this situation is self-serving diatribe (more on this later). We were hit with this an Christmas eve and Christmas day, and yet most of the mods involved and sue spent hours of our time on this during those two days, sacrificing time with family in order to do so (not seeking sympathy, fact). Doing this while being berated and insulted. And yes, that behavior began before the disabling of the German forum. More to the point, some of the global mods initiated a separate conversation with the some of the HamAnons to have peaceful discussion with them, and some progress was made there. Our understanding was they would stand down from the belligerent discussion so calmer heads could prevail. While I was away for time with family, I returned to find that the PM thread had devolved even more. Forgive me then if I doubt the sincerity of those with whom I was communicating. Additionally, If you had read every post in that PM thread, you would have noted on several occasions that several different mods essentially pleaded with the 21 ham/germanons invited to the thread to not leave WWP. Calm, clear explanations were given about why it would not work. Who does that if they don't care? Oh right, YOU care more. Twenty one is much more than 3 or 4 retards. But wait you say, not all of those in the conversation posted. From the OP where the initial demands were made: Incidentally, not all of those 21 were banned, but they were clearly part of making the ludicrous demand. Actually, that was where things were already moving until you decided to save the day and further the drama by taking both subtle and obvious shots at sue, Miranda and other mods. sue had already stated the German board would return when we can find the best new mods for it. As for unwarranted self importance, I already brought this up with you. Look in the mirror. Who appointed you UN negotiator for this disturbance? -*- Finally, you've given your observations of the mods here, allow me to provide an observation of you. You disappear for weeks/months at a time, contribute little to nothing to valuable discussions here and only reappear when there is drama between some users and one or more of the mods (that you don't think are part of your edgy club). You then use the opportunity to troll and fuck with the mods and admins to engender yourself to those disaffected users. This has happened twice now that I can recall. Others may remember more times than this. As I'm not trained in psychology, I'll refrain from trying to diagnose this behavior pattern.
