Hey, I noticed....
« on: October 20, 2007, 02:33:22 PM »
I noticed that Dragon lady is no longer a moderator. Is this fall out from the "not agreeing with each other" thing?
DL, did you remove yourself????  ???

Are we a group without a leader now?? Too bad, this board was nothing a few months ago, and with the work of everyone it has grown exponentially (alot), so whats up? Now it seems like SP is like all the other boards...sad.

Maybe that is why the "welcome to steer planet" face seems to have his thumb down.....

I don't know about DL, but I would hope moderators aren't "falling by the wayside" because of disagreements.  How boring it would be if we all agreed with each other on every topic.  I'm thinking it may be more the "way" some disagreed with each other.  How about it DL, Red, etc?

Can everyone say anarchy? (Now I know why I am beginning to understand knabe!)

WARNING: The following maybe unsuited for minors!

OK, now this is making me p%&&ed! I came to this board because of the efforts of those who I later realized were the moderators. In defense of them and their time, talents and knowledge, I would like to say thank you to them all. You are needed, wanted and loved. They have wiped our noses, cleaned up our messes and given us swift kicks in the a$$ when needed. And now we're left to our own devices! So what's the _ _ _ _ up! It would be easy to be insensitive to tell them to toughen the H#&& up and get back to it. If there is something we all can do let us know.

So I beg you all to reconsider!

(Sorry if this has offended any one. But this situation offends me.)

Shoot, I feel bad...  :(

The first good lively discussion I get into in a long time somehow ends up in the implosion of the entire board (or at least the entire mod staff, all of whom i greatly respect and admire, btw). I'm sorry it all came to this, but I'm not apologizing for anything I said. If an open letter in a widely circulated catalog for a highly promoted public auction isn't fair game for discussion by concerned fellow breeders, then I guess nothing is.

Yes, this board has been much more personal in nature than any other cattle board I've seen. That's a big part of it's appeal to many of us, and there's certainly nothing wrong with it. But it naturally follows that there will also be that much more opportunity for some to get offended or hurt by what others may say. We all need to remember that at the end of the day, if you put us all in a room together, most likely we'd all have a great time, be happy we were there, and probably would each leave knowing something (and someone) valuable that we didn't know before...

I fear that the powers that be on this board may have offended the very people that have made it what it is (or was) including not only the moderators but also the posters and readers. I for one have the deepest respect for our former moderators and truely think it was a serious mistake to "clean house" - the ones that resigned their position, that was their choice and I don't brgrudge them of that, but to send DL on her way with out conversation or notice was IMVHO a mistake that this board will suffer from perhaps to its demise.

It's sad that the very thing that brought many of us to this board is now tearing it apart
