Yea, right. Around here we teach you to swim by throwing into the deep end of the pool.

Re: Kudos to Our New CF Moderators

Now, is that real Cuban rum or is it the Dominican Cuban rum? I can always get Cuban rum that isn't made in Cuba but the only time I've had Cuban rum made in Cuba someone brought it back from Cuba. I confess to having looked very hard having a preference for other forms of eau de vie (love fermented and distilled agave juice aged in oak).

As long as I don't send the new moderators round the twist, there might be hope for me yet!

Re: Kudos to Our New CF Moderators

A moderator, in my fairly infant understanding, lays in the wings waiting to pounce on and KILL people who post SPAM and otherwise spoil your pleasant environment.

If you're simply being mean (which also spoils our happy 'be nice' place), we don't kill you. Nope, we either torture you or give you lessons in how to be nice.

Re: Kudos to Our New CF Moderators

If you ask nicely enough, we'll torture you anyway. It's always good to have some practise!!

Re: Kudos to Our New CF Moderators

Steve, sadly on a daily basis CF is spammed by people trying to sell members everything from mobile phones to Viagra. Even worse, some of these posts are placed with the intention of relieving members of their hard earned dollars without supplying goods

Hopefully most of this is deleted quickly before members get to see it and having moderators around the world in different time zones helps to keep the lid on the problem, athough we will never stop it completely.

If we miss one please do report it or any post for that matter which you feel is unacceptable by using the red and white triangle icon under everyones name and picture:

Pete

Trollers, for torture, spam and outright garble try ALT.COM. I am sure you will be welcomed.

Even if you are not serious about the pain it is a great example of an out-of-control albeit ADULT website.

Chief, you forgot the political angle, try adding:

"by a US Senator who voted to print money to fuel the economy."
