Assuming that's true regarding the event in question (it's certainly a more general truth), it's no less true that certain kinds of people feel compelled to giggle derisively, vomit, roll their eyes and maybe even break things after reading posts like yours.

If you're not a mod you can't by definition have an informed opinion on whether or not the mods are doing a crappy job, since you have no way of seeing what they actually do.

That said, I could see why the promotion post looks like spam, and I probably would've gotten rid of it, if not for 2mM telling me not to. Having a known 'tips staffer post the promotions instead of the 1-post, black-on-blue lettering-posting guy (legit though he apparently is) or at least having whoever it was that coordinated the promotion post in the thread right away to confirm that it's legit would've made that clearer, at least.

Imo.

i mean come on, it's not a big deal. and the best part is Kc complaining that i did not ask nicely. so basically Kc is pissed because i wasnt nice to him? oh the irony...

not true. if you notice the mods, they are doing a bad job. if the board is spam free the mods are to be respected. if spam frequently goes undeleted, perhaps not.

a mod who is unidentifiable as a mod, who simply goes about his duties quietly and keeps his status as a mod separate from his status as a community member is a good mod. a mod who keeps telling you he's a mod and stomps around in size 6 jackboots waving his shriveled banhammer dick about needs to befall a misadventure courtesy of a firm of skinheads who erroneously believe him to be a half jewish immigrant who supports their rival football team.

thank you.

now purely for shits and giggles, can someone explain to me why asking for a stake is not soliciting?

1. Spam does not "frequently go undeleted" here by any means. Are you suggesting it does, or should I not infer this from your post?

2. Since you don't know if this board gets on average 1, 10, 100 or 1000 spam posts a day, you don't know what percentage of spam is cleaned up fast enough for the crowd not to notice, which would seem to me to be the fairest yardstick to measure mod performance against. If the answer is 1000 posts/day, it would be unreasonable to expect to never encounter any undeleted spam, if the answer is 1 post/day you could reasonably expect to rarely run into that post. Of course, the odds of finding not yet deleted spam go up as you log onto the forums more frequently. In any case, I don't think anyone here is suggesting or expecting 24/7 mod oversight so yes, spam will occasionally go unnoticed and therefore undeleted for, say, a day or so. If you feel like you have a solution to this problem, feel free to share it with all of us. You're also welcome to report any unnoticed spam and it will get dealt with asap.

3. Leaving aside for a moment the fact that the Betfair promotion post could fairly easily be mistaken for spam (something which 2mM has conceded and apologised for, so there), when 2mM sends you a private message (or warning, whatever - this may or may not offend you more than a regular pm but I don't really consider it very relevant) regarding your post this does resemble "go[ing] about his duties quietly" a lot more than it does "stomp[ing] around in size 6 jackboots waving his shriveled banhammer dick". To me at least. You're of course free to disagree with any moderator's decision or with any of the forum house rules and to air your grievances, but it does strike me as a little odd that you're pretending 2mM blew all this up into some sort of public dick-waving contest when he intended to keep everything between him and you, hence the private warning.
