    When the mod is the perpetrator, can another mod close the mods thread or edit his/her post?

    Can a mod ban someone for simply not liking the person?

    Is there a system in line to keep the mods in check?

    What can a member do if they believe that a mod is acting against them unfairly?

    I'm not saying that any of the mods are bad, but, you know, there are crooked cops out there too.

    only Paul can ban someone. If you have an issue with a Mod, PM or email Paul... He's a cool dude

    A Mod can edit anothers posting. It has happened when I have had to edit their posts. I also once created an inappropriate thread that Jazzbo nuked.

    Mods can not ban. Paul does. But after a request by a Mod.

    The system of keeping mods in check is that TB runs and works on its own. Mods do not create or govern it. The members very much create the mood for itself. TB has changed in the few years its been around. But it is due to its members IMHO.

    If you have a problem with a Mod, PM the mod. Often times it is just a misunderstanding by the Mod or the regular member. If that is not satisifying then PM another Mod in that area. If that doesnt work PM Paul.

    As far as crooked cops I dont know of any here. Different opinions and ways of Mod'ing, but not "crooked".

    You obviously have a problem with one, and we know who it is. But that is cool with me.

    ...and if you have any doubts about anything that odie said in his post, reread the Forum rules. Like speddling said, if you feel that a mod is being unfair, send the mod a PM. If you still have an issue, pm Paul. NEVER QUESTION A MOD IN PUBLIC. THIS IS THE SUREST WAY TO GET BANNED. THE RULES EXIST FOR A REASON.

    Wuh? I think it would be a waste of time to get all huffy puffy over an internet forum. TB and other forums are great resources, and great ways to converse with individuals in other areas. But for me, TB is a free service, if I say something dumb and get banned, that's my own problem. Chances are I won't, but if I do, I'd eventually realize that whatever the mods, or Paul decides to do about it is in the best interest of keeping TB a great resource and a great way to communicate with others...

    it will take a lot more than just saying something dumb to get banned. you have to willingly and willfully be engaged in anti-social behaviour to be banned from the site, and you'd get warned about it a few times before that happened.

    Sporting a wicked mullet can put you with one foot out the door too.
