No need. BOT does a reasonably fine job, and when whiteflame steps down, the quality of moderation will very considerably increase.

BOT is smarter than whiteflame, a better judge than whiteflame, less irrational than whiteflame, and screws up consistently less frequently than whiteflame.

Though I certainly appreciate the shoutout, even if it was a tongue-in-cheek shout out.

Whiteflame doesn't call people "cunts" and "jackasses." To me, that shows better judgement and less irrationality on whiteflame's part. As for voting moderation, whiteflame does an exellent job. Disagreeing with you is not indicative of whether or not he is doing his job well or poorly.

He used those words (in a public forum) to describe Chris, not me. And I am seriously concerned when any moderator thinks it is appropriate to violate the TOS, because they are the ones tasked with enforcing the TOS. It should incredibly poor judgement when a moderator sees fit to personally and publicly attack another user, particularly in the context of the thread in which those comments were made. This more seriously calls into question BOT's judgement than do any of whiteflame's so-called "errors."

And, these are not isolated incidents. BOT has said things like this in the past to others. I cannot recall a single instance of whiteflame ever doing something like that. You may personally like BOT because he doesn't disagree with you as much, but his actions in this regard, for me, were more egregiously disqualifying than anything whiteflame has done.

Chris calls people cunts all the time. It's not that big of a deal.

Generally, he's provoked into doing that, but even so, I do not advocate that Chris be a mod. BOT is a mod, and ought to be held to vastly higher standards. BOT's comments were unprovoked, a personal attack, and utterly unbecoming of the position he occupies. Frankly, were I Airmax, I would have relieved him of his position on that basis alone. Mods may not break the TOS if they are to enforce the TOS.

That said, again, your personal issues with BOT do not mean that whiteflame is a better vote moderator than he is.

I do not have personal issues with BOT. That I think he has poor judgement based on his rashness in several instances and his inability to hold his tongue is a legitimate issue to consider when debating who ought to be a mod. Whiteflame is clearly a good voting moderator, and I doubt many would argue that he enforces existing standards fairly and competently. Many may disagree with the standards themselves, but--in that case--the debate that should be had is one over the standards, but not over whiteflame's capacity to enforce the standards that are in place.

No need. BOT does a reasonably fine job, and when whiteflame steps down, the quality of moderation will very considerably increase.

BOT is smarter than whiteflame, a better judge than whiteflame, less irrational than whiteflame, and screws up consistently less frequently than whiteflame.

Whiteflame doesn't call people "cunts" and "jackasses." To me, that shows better judgement and less irrationality on whiteflame's part. As for voting moderation, whiteflame does an exellent job. Disagreeing with you is not indicative of whether or not he is doing his job well or poorly.

Your personal issues with BOT does not mean that he would not be a better vote moderator than whiteflame.

He used those words (in a public forum) to describe Chris, not me. And I am seriously concerned when any moderator thinks it is appropriate to violate the TOS, because they are the ones tasked with enforcing the TOS. It should incredibly poor judgement when a moderator sees fit to personally and publicly attack another user, particularly in the context of the thread in which those comments were made. This more seriously calls into question BOT's judgement than do any of whiteflame's so-called "errors."

And, these are not isolated incidents. BOT has said things like this in the past to others. I cannot recall a single instance of whiteflame ever doing something like that. You may personally like BOT because he doesn't disagree with you as much, but his actions in this regard, for me, were more egregiously disqualifying than anything whiteflame has done.

Chris calls people cunts all the time. It's not that big of a deal.

Generally, he's provoked into doing that, but even so, I do not advocate that Chris be a mod. BOT is a mod, and ought to be held to vastly higher standards. BOT's comments were unprovoked, a personal attack, and utterly unbecoming of the position he occupies. Frankly, were I Airmax, I would have relieved him of his position on that basis alone. Mods may not break the TOS if they are to enforce the TOS.

That said, again, your personal issues with BOT do not mean that whiteflame is a better vote moderator than he is.

I do not have personal issues with BOT. That I think he has poor judgement based on his rashness in several instances and his inability to hold his tongue is a legitimate issue to consider when debating who ought to be a mod. Whiteflame is clearly a good voting moderator, and I doubt many would argue that he enforces existing standards fairly and competently. Many may disagree with the standards themselves, but--in that case--the debate that should be had is one over the standards, but not over whiteflame's capacity to enforce the standards that are in place.

Your argument is that you don't like his personality so he shouldn't be a vote mod. You have now repeated yourself three times.

You aren't going to change my mind, because you not liking his personality is not a reason why he would not be better than whiteflame.
