I was asked today and accepted. For the moment I will mainly limit my actions to hunting down and killing spam, I already have reported much of same, now I can deal with it directly.

As for other moderation, the policy here to date is a light touch and I will do my best to follow that. This is, I suspect, a learn on the job situation.

Thank you.

I just realised that to fulfil my functions I will have to remove the 7 scumb ... gentlemen from my ignore list to check whether they have gone beyond even the very liberal limits that apply here. Groan!

hah.. nice. Well deserved. In my limited observations you are one of the true gentlemen of the site. Though I must say Paul. That avavart of yours looks mighty cute... but for some reason when I browse the forum, as I was earlier today you not just show up as a mod on duty.. but with that avatar blown up to massive distored proportions.

gave me flashbacks to a movie I watched last night in fact.. I'll be lucky if I sleep tonight. I laughed at this scene last night.. now after getting the stare down by your enlarged avatar.... I might just have problems sleeping tonight

Strange, I have not seen my avatar any larger than others' avatars. Anyway, you need not worry about Clovis. He is a somewhat shy but very gentle and very affectionate cat. A single pet and he would be putty in your hands.

Congrats on your mod status (I think), I was only banned once and it was enough to learn my lesson, hope I don’t offend anyone to be banned again, life is too short.

You're a braver man than me Paul. Well done!
Thanks!

I think a good part of the reason is that I had become quite good at spotting and reporting Spam, which of course meant that someone else had to do the cleanup! So why not get me to do the cleanup? I bagged my first 4 this morning! The usual keto diet stuff, however I never understood the importance of "foreskins" in someone's diet 🥴.

Policy seems to be a light touch, especially light in Politics, so don't expect to see me wielding a scythe just to get in the exercise. I will beg everyone's forbearance for a while until I get a feel for the job.

So what you're saying is now is the time for me to post pictures of naked ladies draped over tanks?

While it is unlikely to get you banned, you will get "snipped", your offending "post" anyway.

Lets not do anything rash.....depends on the quality and overall character of the specific images?

I can only go on what appears to be the existing standard. Thread like bikinis don't seem to have been removed, one or two with less have been. As far as I can see that the poster can say she is wearing "something" over sensitive areas, it passes. Not something I'm going to loose sleep over anyway. Pussy is allowed as long as it meows, has long whiskers, follows laser dots and cleans itself using only it's tongue.

Damn you people.

You know the ads on the forum are contextual. So now now after clicking on this thread I’m suddenly seeing ads for Torrid.

Thanks...

While I added a couple of dozen of the most prolific ad sites to my firewall and use "Adblock for Youtube", I would expect to see some ads, but see none. Though Adblock is supposed to only affect Youtube, it must work here in GS as well. I still see ads in other sites.
