Admin Post I’m pleased to announce that Thunder 58 has joined the staff here at G-T in the role of moderator. He’s been a solid member for years and I appreciate his help. Just so everyone is aware; a moderator does not operate the forum or have full access to the forum software. All we can do is monitor the moderation queue, deal with reported posts and, if necessary, ban users whom refuse to comply with forum rules. We have no control over the ads you see and, chances are very good that we see different advertising than you; ads are individualized. Moderators are not paid; it’s voluntary. We can delete posts, or entire threads, but it’s not a lot of fun when you have to do that. Moderators find themselves acting against posts which may align perfectly with their own opinions, but that’s the cost of keeping the forum free of political content. You can help Thunder (and I) by doing a few simple things. Avoid religion, politics and controversy. No nudity, profanity or w*rds wh1ch disguise, missspellll oar may-k phonetic substitutions for profanity. Be respectful towards others and if you must disagree, do so in an agreeable fashion.
