It really is a shame, to me, that many in this day and age have lost any tolerance for opinions that don't sit square with their own world view and then whine, or call names or plain go aggressive rather than just see it as valid free speech and just a contrary opinion. They're out there. Opinions. Many of them are not the same as yours, dear reader.
Once more, this is, or was last time I looked, the grumps thread. That word suggests a triviality, a lack of seriousness. Rants? Yeah, maybe. Genuine anger and death threats? Active discouragement of posting?? No. Lighten up. "Grumpy Old Gits"; the clue is in the title.
It's possibly too long ago for many to know but this site was, in part, set up as a counter to what was perceived as a heavy-handed administration of a popular US-based slot forum. One with illustrations but, alas, no bikinis. And as an early member here I did my time as a moderator and enjoyed it. I never expected any thanks, I took it as an honour to try and keep the place running smoothly. And fully acknowledged that my take on things, my reading of things, might differ from that of others. That actually makes life more interesting when you get that.
I think the moderators here are doing an okay-ish job (damning with faint...). Probably more strict than I'd play it but whatever.
But if you don't enjoy something, if it doesn't reward you, and starts draining you... Take a break, maybe?
