@Millennial_Falcon should be encouraged to resign. He spends hours here and adds nothing, just upsetting people.

I would be happy to resign ownership of in his favor, if he leaves off moderating this subverse.

He would get his life back.

And @kingkongwaswrong might as well move on at the same time. Absentee landlords are so last century, if not the one before that!

Normally I would stay out of this type of conversation. But I've reached my end with MF too. It seems that someone's ego is starting to get out of control. We are supposed to be a community. I appreciate that mods have the most difficult job but some emotional intelligence is needed. Some researchers here are doing some heavy lifting too. I would put myself in that category with the hours and hours, weeks, that have moved into months of research. It is not acceptable to be treated with contempt and I do not understand why the senior members are allowing it because it then looks like they condone it.

Here's an exchange between MF and myself which demonstrates that I followed all the rules that he insisted needed to be followed but yet, he still deleted a post of mine that needed to be seen. At the end of the exchange, there is no response, just downvotes on my comment which contains a screenshot providing proof that I had followed the rules.

This is not acceptable. And it is also not moderation.

I agree. This is not acceptable.

They would have to demod themselves. Just saying.

I may be wrong, but any [O] can remove him. Perhaps he does deserve to keep his historical sinecure having set up the site in the first place. Reminded here of Aesop's Frogs -

v/pizzagate is the most visited [and successful and controversial?] subverse on /voat - correct me if I'm wrong - hence @crensh involvement.

Hey @Crensh ! Where is my v/georgewebb subverse. It has been months since my takeover request

have you seen how many posts mf deletes ? it is a shocking amount on a daily basis. i wont post anymore because he will delete my post and then wont even tell me why or help me modify it. at least the other mods have manners. except for crensch who just abused me.

Spent a full week writing the executive summary. Spend ~1 hour+ of my time every day refreshing /new to maintain the quality of the sub and prevent shills from spamming nonsense, disinfo, and off-topic slide posts, something that nobody else has been willing to do so far.

"adds nothing, just upsetting people"

pick one.

There are two kinds of people who get upset by my moderating. One is shills/trolls like Amalek. Another is paranoid types (a great recent example is @hojoruku) who think I'm trying to censor them because I ask them to take 2 minutes to add needed info to their post. Well, to be fair, there's a third issue. Some users simply don't understand that actual evidence is important and it gets buried and hidden if we allow the slippery slope of tons of barely-relevant posts.

@Silverlining is right, you should resign. Banning people for a single comment which draws attention a contentious issue is not about spam, regardless of what you put in the deletion log.

Your INCONSISTENCY is frustrating, MF. You need to enforce the rules the same way for everyone instead of giving your buddies a break that others don't receive.
