I agree. I used to be one who ranted and railed against him and then I saw the futility of it. Then he stopped for awhile. Now he is back with a vengence and, thanks to some others, he is being egged on more than ever. I KNOW some others who got more offensive than could be tolerated were banned; how much longer can he be tolerated?

No, we do not have a moderator, free speech and all. Unfortunately, that means we have to govern ourselves, which apparently some of us are not capable of doing. If you want a moderated board, QOL is available. Some of us, though, prefer the freedom of QZ to the constraints that moderation places on a board.

And since your topic addresses our Oregonian friend's penile posts, it is inevitable that this thread will soon deginerate into phallic phrases and urbane responses by the peanut gallery. It's really become quite pathetic by now.

No. We don't need a moderator. We just need a smaller number of jackasses. ;)

Yes, we do need a moderator. Having a moderator does not infringe on free speech, it's a way to get rid of the ridiculous amount of spam on this board.

And I'll tell you this - the spam makes this whole place a lot less enjoyable for me. It actually makes me come here less than before. It's distracting.

Far better to ignore the trolls than send them to the abyss. I'm sure his gammon will stop as soon as he loses his virginity. In about 2025.

Hmmm... never noticed before but there are three 's's in the word Messsage to the left when you write a post. It's shoddiness like this that drives folk away, not the charlatans. Sort it!

An important difference I'm sure.

The whole moderator thing has been bought up before and rejected by the majority. I personally prefer boards with no monderators- bad moderation can cause more people to leave than none at all.

I came too late, I knew I would. Now I'm leaving before this turns into a gratituously lurid orgy.

But first I'll say, why is everyone getting so tight about old Chuck? He is, on the whole, fairly easy to ignore.

I wouldn't mind but you can't spam his chuffin site. When I made accusations of paedophilia against the little cuntface they were sent off for moderating before publication. I wouldn't mind but I used my bosses e-mail address.

What if the feds track him down...

There will be no moderator on QUEENZONE.COM unless something drastically changes. A few months ago when the topic of a moderator came up (strangely enough about the same persons sexual spam) I got a reply from Richard Orchard and Your Valentine explaining why they did not want to open the pandora's box of a moderator and that they hoped we would self-moderate by ignoring the offending party and hoping he would get bored and go away. He did, for awhile.

I am against censoring someone's speech. I would not want him banned or censored if he offered a differing opinion on politics, or war, but there are limits to free speech. How long has he been on this board, first as Charles Baer then as Not Charles Baer (yeah, we figured it out) and he has yet to say anything other than chant a litany of body parts, sexual acts, bodily functions, spam for GIG, and the occasional call for freedom of speech when he feels he may have pushed his luck far enough to actually get banned. Enough spam. Either participate in a coherent exchange with other posters, initiate a topic of common interest, or get the funk out!

In all honesty, I was originally posting in a rather offhand mood. I quickly learned to ignore whatever Mr. Baer has to say, and my suggestion about a moderator was never intended to insinuate that I wanted somebody to block out anything that might offend me personally or that I would not want to hear--I repeat, I am not against free speech or anything like that.

On the other hand, it's very annoying to be browsing the topics on the Personal board when someone else comes along, looks at my screen, and instantly is drawn to Mr. Baer's subject headings. I guess that is my real issue here. I don't care what you say inside a thread because I obviously do not have to view it. However, the headings are viewed by everybody and Mr. Baer's are an egregious abuse of the unmoderated environment.

What I've learned from all this (and what the majority of upstanding Queenzoners have helped me see) is that the best you can do is to ignore spoilers like this one. It is interesting to note that I've seen moderated boards where stuff like this is allowed to go on anyway (and there's more of it too!). Nevertheless, it's been proven that relevant discussion reigns supreme on Queenzone.com (much more so than many other boards, I must admit), and I shall stop bitching about the juvenile antics of a few misguided rabble-rousers :)
