Then talk with vic about your problems.
Or stop being a moderator.
And i say it again, we need a poll for new moderators like in the past.
Why do think we had a poll for voting moderators with bert in the past?

I'd like more input on who (else) wants a poll for picking old/new moderator/s, since, apparently, mods right now make up around a third of all active users. There are those who're silent, but I don't know if they are even here.

So because 3 or 4 people have spoken out and want change, it's time for new mods then? We'd never have politicians then.

MOR says there are tens of others, otherwise feeling uncomfortable to speak.

then there's hundreds that want them to stay or don't care. I heard them tell me. They just don't want to speak out on here.

This is the main reason why we shouldn't have power trippers!

Once upon a time they gave me moderator powers.
But I was silly and they took it away.
Yet I am okay with that.
I request some salty, buttery, corn of that which pops.

I was silent, but I wanted to wait for the right moment. Baton needs to be unbanned,and be allowed to say what he pleases. The moderators need to give him some room. Let him post every un-American thing he can think of. So strong Is my faith in my country that nothing Baton says will affect me and it should not affect anyone else. I think I recall Baton lives in middle earth,we'll we all know that's a godforsaken hell hole. :) I am sure I could find things to say about it. :)

Kudayta is not bad guy,in the past he has been great at fighting the trolls. And he has excelled at it. I partly wish we could put him in a glass case,attach a note,have it say open only in the event of a troll. :)
A lot of us,myself included have a very high regard for kudy. But in this matter regarding Baton,Kudayta is wrong! Baton must be unbanned.

We appreciate the work of the moderators on here. Its a thankless job. But you have made a mistake,Baton must be allowed to say what he pleases, just as I am free to post propaganda and say what I please. Did you get that last part? I have been free to post whatever I please. And I have been doing it for several years now. Baton is one of the greatest defcon players ever, there must be a place for him on the forums.

Does everyone here understand that Baton was not banned because of his political beliefs? I share his political beliefs.

Baton was banned because he spammed the forums with dozens of threads after he was banned, launched vicious personal attacks against me and others, and breaking his promises to behave.

He will not be returning. He was given more than enough chances.

And you alone have decided this? End of story.

Yes, it was only me that made the decision.

I see no reason to reverse the decision.

Who do you answer to and how do I contact them? And I will now lend my voice to call for a poll for picking old/new moderator/s

Hmmmm.

While I agree that baton should have had more chances, he got them. And then persisted to do what he had been warned about. Then he made new accounts to spam. What is so hard about that? He broke the rules, so he doesn't get to hang with the adults.
