[DMCForum] Re: ATTENTION: New DMCForum policies


Some things to consider with these "new rules".

Last week, Ryan sent me this message for my comments because I am
a "moderator".  My comments were as anyone would expect AGAINST this
action as I am an advocate of free speech and dont consider heated
discussion on the internet anything close to "yelling fire in a
crowded theater".

With all of that said, I did tell Greg and Ryan that I will "play by
the rules". 

FWIW, Greg is one of three "full moderators" on the Forum.  The
others 2 (Walt, and Samuel) seem to be inactive.  In an effort to
promote the Forum, and have quick responses to new subscriptions Greg
made Me, Dave, and Rich "partial moderators" (We have limitations on
what we can do). 

The Poll (which has not been closed yet) that prompted these new
rules was posted on 9/18/05.  Ryan was made a moderator on 9/23/05
(to replace Rich A??).  I'd like to think that Greg's selection of a
new moderator was unrelated to the way people voted in the Poll.

Not that the timing is that important, but in our private discussions
last week, Rich made it clear that "This is not MY list, and these
are not MY rules!  Everything I have done has been a group effort and
putting the polls up for THE GROUP to decide proves that."  So, I say
if you disagree with the new rules make it known.  Vote in the poll
(it is still open), and let your opinions be known.  You can also
change your vote if you so choose (Yahoo lets you do this).
Apparently "I Don't Care" is a meaningless vote (I say it means "I
like things the way they are", but the other Mods don't agree)

I agreed with Greg to "play by the rules" mostly because the people
advocating the rules are more vocal than those who oppose it.  I was
thinking of trying to talk Rick in to sticking around and trying to
help the list evolve but then realized that the other moderators take
more notice to people leaving than staying. Rick did vote "I don't
care", so I did not know he felt so strongly about it..  If you are
still here Rick, you can change your vote!



(Mark, feel free to make them tiny for us.  LOL)
