Honestly I'm glad I keep turning down the admin job here, sounds a right pain
When in Rome/Alvor.
Have you retired?
I've got 25 years left.....
If we upped the money and gave you time off to camp while working?
Crikey. So how much of the above has actually happened? In percentage terms?
I'd guess 100% or it's lies which I doubt.
But if so, that's astonishing.
Pathetic I'd say
Most forums get hit with a lot of what I've mentioned, it's not exclusive.
I can personally vouch for the employer bit, and having my logins strong armed....I'm not going to go in to detail as it exposes either sources or how it's been fixed....but let's just say I look forward to meeting certainly one person face to face who will be left with no doubt about my thoughts on trying to get me sacked for my moderating (really badly) as a hobby.
It's my company, weapon.
I'm not here pointing fingers at ex or current members, it's not that simple and not productive.....in fact I'm sure other VW forums have probably been exposed themselves either knowingly or not.
And no, neither I or anyone I know have retaliated in kind as believe me, I can and would strip the lot....people really need to read up on social hacking.
My personal view is this....there is zero need for multiple logins on one forum.
Open bragging about buying in multiple IP addresses to fool the mods like you are Bill Gates is laughable....use Starbucks, next doors wifi or even your phone as a hotspot does that....it's suddenly standing in the middle of an arguement that isn't yours yet maintaining a jaundiced view that exposes the avatar.
Talking smack online, then expecting a red carpet here just shows how thick as pig sh1t some people really are.
THIS, all of THIS is a game, it's not real.
I've not met a single person in real life that is either here or has left that I didn't like, yet their online persona and often their actions are an effin embarrassment.
This website is run voluntarily by human beings, so no it's not perfect.
People talk to mods and admin like we are some sort of five star hotel....demanding explanations, deserving reasons, have the right to being answered to.....and the utterly jaw dropping depths to which people will sink to try and morally justify themselves is incredible.
Im not saying there is impunity here, or perfection....but we are passive unless stirred, I truly believe that....be in no doubt there is a thin vein of middle aged utter bell ends that have only treachery against here at their hearts, and they know it.
I am not rolling out the bunting campaigning for this side or any other......the huge majority of people should have zero care and be able to swim in all camps and be welcomed as such....
In the words of a personal hero, Nye Bevan....this is my truth, now tell me yours.
But you get to share the executive bog with @Baysearcher......sometimes the Bristol Bomber even remembers to lift the seat before he goes.....
I've said it before, most forums are privately "owned", they're not democracies and if you don't like how things are run or the " management " of a forum then go elsewhere.
Heaven knows I've moved on from plenty of forums, newsgroups and lists over the years.

How is Annette?!
I'm not sure who moons is referring too, but i'm 100% certain it's not me, though i do remember one time when i was on a RS Turbo forum, someone did get fired for frequenting a forum during work hours, back in the late 90's i think it was . now time to respond to the remaining questions..
