It's been my pet hate for a time period that goes back to the very
very early fidonet days, but back then, real mods were the only ones who
moderated, it was more friendly and fun (and no I was never a moderator on
fidonet), but the professional yet fair way they did things way way way
back then, hrmm... early 80's IIRC, may have moulded me into the 'defender
of the lil guy' against the bullies, that I am today.
If moderators did their job, and enforced the rules to the letter, and
warned/suspended/removed the wannabe net cops, it would be a much more
friendlier place, every list will be, usenet however, well, we all know
that can't be controlled, most ISP's have not honoured cancels since the
early-mid nineties when a couple of mods had a dummy spit and started
cancelling everyones posts for no reason.

Its a turn off to any community.

well some may be MSCE's... but I wouldn't go that far :)

Just goes to show M$ do see Linux as a real threat, we should in fact be
honoured by the FUD that M$ try to spread.
