Oi vey! Shit, your right! I hadn't realized that!

Thanks Johnisfaster! Not sure what I would have done without your stroke of exceptional intellect to help me realize that "nobody is making me come here". I always thought someone was holding a gun to my head for the last 5 years I've been posting here.

I can just never come back.

Your a genius! A real awesome kind of dude.

Thanks man.

:roll:
wasn't trying to be a dick. but people are always bitching about the moderation issue yet they keep coming back continuously. I figure if something is bothering you that much maybe you just should find a new forum. if you're still coming back then it must not be bothering you all that much.

Ok, not trying to be a dick either, seriously, but by that rationale if a bunch of crack heads set up a crack house on my block, or a brothel next door to my house I would just move? Or can I complain to the authorities. Can I get pissed off when the authorities do nothign about it?

See what I'm saying? To me "not coming back" isn't an acceptable alternative. No it has not gotten that bad, yet.

I've been posting here for 5 years for a reason. I love this forum. Given that I think I have every right to speak up about this if I choose. My only option should not be, and is not, "to find another forum".

I find it strange you're comparing a forum to a home. If some crack heads moved next door to me I wouldn't move away.. if I started hating a forum... I would leave it. not exactly the same thing.

anyway, sorry to piss you off honostly. the you don't have to come here comment was a little rude I admit. I've just seen too many of these moderation rants. but you're entitled

honostly though, theres been so many rants about this with no results do we expect they are reallly gonna do anything about it? seems like a request falling on deaf ears if you ask me.

anyway, continue
sorry bout being rude and all.

fair enough bruv, no harm done.

The nothing being done about it is part of the frustration. Didn't help to have my mah sitting right here either..... defo rubbed me the wrong way.

No this isn't the same as my home by any means, was the only analogy I could think of on the fly though.

whatever happened to that weird firefix fix that somebody came up with? I never really read about it but it seems they hacked a way to block users or something.

Damn, am I the only sick bastard who thought the porn was a nice respite from today's batch of wretched posts? Like a sorbet to cleanse the palette between bad wine tastings?

Smutek, I think it's as crappy as anyone (not lndrvr1, obviously) - but hasn't this been much better the last couple of months? Not a lot of porn threads gets to stay anymore. It used to be much worse. No?

Do feel your frustration, though. And no, it's not an option to move.

Yeah bro, it definitely has been much better. Granted.

Used to be the bots would make their own threads for the most part and you could avoid them. This guy is posting in the regular threads though. This isn't a bot, this is one of us.

He posted in the ubuntu thread for gods sake.

We had the same postings on our site, too. I fixed this totally (no spam postings since then).

If anyone of the Ableton team reads this, contact me and I'll tell you the two small tweaks you need in your phpbb. As there is a "war" going on between spam idiots and forum administrators, I wouldn't like to post it here.

[Edit] I forgot: No captchas or similar. Normal visitors won't see any difference.
