Dan dear dear Dan why are you getting so much out of your pram for the swastika was around so long before German Nazis where around if you actually bother to have a look what it means before you shoot off about something you haven't even researched you will find its symbol of great power google it .

While all this swastika stuff is fun (nothing like discussing the primary symbol of the world's worst and deadliest political party to add a cheer to the thread), there is something more important and fantastic to discuss:

My candidacy for moderator.

Universal health care for none!

The "swastika"

and, it is a shame, most people associate it with evil,
'cause it's NOT evil at all,
it is stuffed full, of answers
in fact, you would be surpriSed who still uses it

(who did once, send in an email offering to be a moderator--
however, i did NOT even get an "aknowledgement/or a rejection" letter) LOL

p.s..

when you create a poll...

you can choose whether or not you want to be able to see who voted for what.
You must have chosen that option.
as many other polls do not have that activated.
You didnt know eh?

hey susan, yeah... people offering themselves as moderator didnt work out the greatest...
that was kind of a silly move to begin with.

Blessings

Nope - didn't know. This is the first time I have used a poll. I thought they were all the same.

Dan Dan Dan please don't be so upset all i said was check your info before opening that great big m__th of yours .Dont worry look at it as a learning curve i was merely stating that the swastika was not a symbol of evil it is a symbol of great power found in almost ancient culture in its clockwise and anticlockwise forms and its a symbol that far predates Hitlers abuse of it . So go and do some more homework on the subject before you start moaning and groaning about someones avatar then i will gladly kiss your ar_se good lick god speed xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I thought that instead of starting a thread titled "Should there be an elected moderator on the team," and having a discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of elections, I figured I'd just nominate myself, and go from there. After all I am the awsomest person I know.

I second all your earlier nominations too.

Cheers

I can't believe how many libertarian/republican every man for himself types there are on this forum. Sorry for the labeling (which I hate) but it seems to express my thoughts at the moment.

If we're all about surviving and building a new better world how do you propose doing that if it's dog eat dog survival of the fittest?

"Universal health care for none" was supposed to be funny because if elected, I would have absolutely no powers whatsoever to create a good health care plan. Just a joke - not a deep statement of political philosophy. I am sorry if you took offense.

I actually support universal health care in the analog world . . .

It's elemental in child psychology that by ignoring kids acting out and not giving them any energy their behavior tends to change.

Apparently, my attempts at humor have been ill recieved, and for that I apologize. I have a tendancy to let my irreverence interfere with the effective communication of my ideas; let me dispense with the humor and make a serious attempt to re-explain what I'm doing here.

After reading Kerry Cassidy's post on the mods, I did a lot of thinking about recent conflicts between regular posters and moderators, and tried to figure out what, if anything, could ever be done to curb what will ALWAYS be a source of tension on forums like these. I myself have never had any posts edited or bad run ins with the mods - except for Karen yesterday, and that was peanuts compared to some of the mod/poster arguments I have seen. It dawned on me that if one or two of the moderators were picked by the forum members, that could possibly cut down on the mod/poster tension - I don't think anything could ever end it permanently, but moderator elections might reduce it.

Then I thought about getting that idea out there to people, and the first thing I wanted to do was start a thread titled "Should We Have Mod Elections?" Then I realized that that would be yet another thread where we sit around and debate, and argue, etc. I figured rather than start a fight over "should we" or "shouldn't we," I'd nominated myself and plant the seed. Why not? I like Avalon, I think moderator elections are a good idea, and a vote would be fun. I really didn't think there was anything to argue about there - people would come, vote, and maybe post why they gave their yay or nay. Believe you me, I was - and am - prepared for the negative stuff; I know the serious ideas (not the jokes) I have about the issues here on Avalon and Camelot put me in the minority. I just figured there would be nothing to fight about, or get offended over - it would be an up and down vote on the group's confidence in my moderating abilities.

That I will ultimately lose, well, is a given (although winning would be cool too). I guess what is most dissappointing, and surprising given that most here bemoan their lack of a real influence or voice in the power structures of the real world, is the voter turnout. How many thousands of people have accounts here? And only 50 people have voted - a third commiting to the useless options? This experience, at least slightly, harkens back to the comments I made on another thread earlier this week (or possibly late last week); much of the lack of power we have over the real world's socioeconomic systems is our own fault - the PTB have enjoyed increasing, unbridled power because of our own apathy and real world inaction. Many would blame the NWO for the world's problems; I think we should blame ourselves.

The course this thread has taken is not exactly what I envisioned when I started it, but it is the poll that is worth it all. If you don't want to post here, at least vote. If you don't want to vote for me, get together via the PM system or the private boards and figure out who to nominate, and put them to a public vote. I second the nomination of both eXchanger and the Flyingpyramid.

Again, I think that having one or two mods out of the whole group come from the main body of posters is fair, potentially calming, and just a good idea. They should also be term limited seats.

I am truly sorry if I have offended anyone in any way, and I hope this sets it right.

Yes Dan.....That is correct you do need to think more before you post. Now I made a poll for you and totally blew you out of the water maybe you can create a poll and see who wants YOU to go and stay. lol. I wonder if the results will be what you assume, as they were not exactly what you assumed about me with my poll.

All this is helping us get a reality check. That is all.....
