It may not necessarily be lying, but it can cause problems if you say someone did/said something that you aren't entirely sure of. And the biggest issues you'll face on the site are history and patterns. People are less forgiving when they see your name pop up, because they'll think 'oh great, it's quickrick/cliffman/troll' or what have you. I am not personally bothered by you misremembering my words, but I can understand why it would bother others.
Coming back to the root of this discussion — moderation. The mod team receives lots of flack for letting what I noted above slide without a second look. Do not take this as me trying to call you out, I'm merely stating where my hands get tied. Sure, I don't always agree with every complaint/piece of feedback, but you need to put yourself in my position for a second. *This is just an example* · I step in and moderate Rol, right? He attacked/flamed you. Sure. Fine and dandy. Perhaps he went too far, calling you some name. Now, how does it look when I hear from others similar complaints of the trap to which Rol fell prey to? Was it really just him after all? Should everyone else see moderations while you continue hopping from thread-to-thread with bear traps ready to be deployed?
I just want you to think what I'm saying.
I agree with you, and understand you have a job and ill be more careful. honestly wish every mod was fair and neutral like you, and pemalite.
As for the the second part to be fair rol has been trying to get me banned since i got here, it was like a mission for him, so i'm not surprised that he will eventually get his way by forming a group and messaging people to actively complain about me, the guy dream is to be a mod, and this community seems to be a big part of his life, very popular poster, so i'm sure he's actively working on the down low to try and get rid of me, which imo is fine after the holidays i will probably stop posting here, so he can have his celebration.
I appreciate the first part (though I've made my share of mistakes).
The second part, however, is a continuation of your problem, rick. Forget about Rol's desire to be a mod, or a personal vendetta, or his popularity, etc, etc. A) It is technically Flaming. So, please step away from that. You know what has to happen if you continue. B) You cannot improve until you start with your own issues. I told you in the PM (much like I've told Rol), let him be the one to mess up. A moderator can then step in and handle it.
We've gotten pretty off topic, so I want to let this be my last reply. I'll let you respond, but from there, let's get things back on track.
I'm just going to say, I strongly appreciate the fact you respond to every user in a civil, respectful, cordial and thorough manner CGI.
You've really lived up to the Head Mod status.
I've still got some rough edges to smooth, but this is greatly appreciated. :)
