This forum has always been very loosely moderated when it comes to behaviour.

I am a regular on a computer technical forum and I have two warnings against my name. One for calling a user a clown and another for saying "you have no clue what you're talking about".

Sounds like a lively place where people are encouraged to speak their minds. A good environment for technical help from pathetic professionals who are used to the saccharine response of customer support, but what Del has here is a wild west of opinion and imaginative correspondence at its best - sure, people here sometimes cross the line of anonymous advantage (myself included, naturally), but that people enjoy it, that there is a place for it, is irreplaceable.

This is true. But I understand why he's like that, given how much havoc has been wreaked in the past (what's the name of that mod whose account got hacked - though people said he just flipped out - and banned random users?).

All so long ago now!

Long ago indeed

That's secret, you can't go around telling people how it works

I used to (and still do) spend a lot of time in the DJ Promo section listening to people's mixes, and helping out with hosting here and there. At some point Swamper made a thread asking for nominations, and a few people seemed to think I would be good at the job, so it ended up happening.

A couple of years later, since the COR had become kind of mod-less (and I spend a shit-ton of time here too ) I guess it made some kind of sense to Swamper to extend my moderator privileges to here as well, to battle spam and retards. Despite Eric winning the poll

Ah, the great sleeper-bot war of 2011. So many memories.

No. Way, way, way before Daydreamer became a mod. His avatar was a picture of the Rocky Mountains, I guess.

Yea how the fuck did daydreamer become a mod? That guy was such a fucking toolbag.

He said he was going to ban me because someone else posted a picture of jailbait in a thread I made...
