    This is definitely not a complaint of the mods or the way they do their job.

    It's a discussion of whether or not we need to tweak the rules.

    That's good then. :)

    For me, it doesn't make much difference. Insult me, don't insult me... call me [Unwelcome language removed], call me sweetheart... :D

    For me, real life is what matters, NOT some anonymous internet shadows... LOL. I'm good either way.

    PS It helps to know how to put people in their place without breaking 'The Rules'.... :rolleyes:. Just sayin...

    Like a well-reasoned argument supported by indisputable facts?

    Are you talking about that "New Rules" post on December 29, 2015?
    http://www.politicaljack.com/threads/new-rules-announcement-please-read.87991/

    There is no rule there (the link SW supplied goes to "error")

    I am not sure what new PJ rules you are talking about and I want to make certain I know the rules here that are current. Could you link me to the rules that you go by when moderating? I need to review them.

    Either way, the moderating is fine. And I am glad numbers are up. I will post whatever the current rules are because I like PJ.

    Ask the OP poster. I didn't start this thread. Obviously,a post on 12/29/2015 is not new in January 2018.

    I thought that you, as a moderator, would know what set of rules we are being asked to abide by.
    The OP suggests we need to tweak. .... asks if we think we need a tweak. The author of the OP is not in a position to write new rules for us.

    Your post referred to the "new" rules that you moderate by right now and I am not sure what those rules are.
    The rules that I have found are dated 2014.
    http://www.politicaljack.com/threads/pj-forum-rules-as-of-feb-2014.65849/
    For the most part these are good rules.

    But............you referred to "new" rules and I haven't seen those. Are there changes from the 2014 ones?

    @SW48 . Maybe you can clarify.
    This is NOT criticism. I just want to know what the current rules are.

    Note: I will offer to update the 2014 rules I have linked, keep them in bullet form that's easy to read and submit them to owner and moderators for approval if you would like to have me do that.

    Note2: Or you could just use those rules I have linked and update the title to read 2018. Those are good rules and really don't need tweaking or changing. I suggest that this is the best idea.

    The OP is titled "...new PJ rules". I know what that is in reference to and so do you.

    An example I gave indisputable facts with a link and arkie still said I was wrong. Fake news should not be given a pass the person who is doing it should be severely mocked and called fvcking moron.
    Your way doesn't work and that person does not deserve a respectful response.

    That isn't what the TP is about, though fair enough. It was written after a couple of temp bans for name calling ('Knuckle head' and 'blockhead' for eg) where given to two or more people who never themselves report name callings.

    eg A&B always report name callings. 1&2 never do and rarely themselves name call.

    A&B have a spat - name call -report - both get a temp 'lock out' from PJ.

    1&2 have a spat - name call - go their merry ways.

    A&2 have a spat - name call -A reports 2 - 2 gets a temp 'lock out' from PJ - and yet A had name called also though 2 didn't report A.

    B name calls 1&2 - 1&2 don't report - they all go on their merry way.

    No one can expect mods to deal with anything not reported and there cannot be different rules for different sets of people. And yet it is unbalanced ................ see the problem?

    It came out of a generous use of 'racist'

    That's okay.
    I asked a question, got my answer by default.
    It's over.
    I understand.
    PJ is far better than most. FAR better.
    I have no complaint.
    Thank you for a great board.
