Well obviously you are not doing too great a job of appearing neutral and even-handed. The fact that you fail to grasp that you should avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest has everything to do with common sense. How on earth did you guys think it would look anywhere near okay that you would deal with a report on your own post is beyond me? And you are wondering why people might think you are acting less than neutral and even-handed?Maxiton said:GJB123 said:In the current climate I have a particular hard time taking your word (or maxiton's for that matter) for it.Irondan said:FYI: red_flanders ban was deliberated behind the scenes by no less than 5 mods and administrators.
Nowhere in the discussions was the question ever asked, "was it in the Lemond thread?".This isn't some large purchase on the stock exchange or government budget discussion, this is a cycling forum. Your participation here is by your own choosing. We, the moderators, put in our own time, gratis, to keep things running smoothly for everyone. We do our best to be even handed, objective, and honest.GJB123 said:I reported a post from maxiton only to receive a message that it was dealt with by ..... wait for it .... maxiton. Are you guys for real? Do you know the words "conflict of interest"? This is hilarious. Steve Martin and Louis de Funes coudn't have done better.
I showed your report to the other moderators before I dealt with it. If you don't trust us, or feel we're not acting in your interests, why don't you find a different forum whose moderators meet with your approval?
If you're going to stay here, though, stop whining and being such a huge PIA.
