I'm a mod on a board, no one really knew it until I banned someone for some really bad shit he was saying. People are like you are a mod, I was like yeah but I'm a quiet one LOL

Happy is an exemplary moderator, he has never issued a ban or a warning I did not think appropriate and the work he has done around here is second to absolutely nobody.  From running our favorite annual events, to spending time listening to all your guys crying, for YEARS.

If you have an issue with Happy, it is most likely because he kicked your ass in some online arguments that have NOTHING to do with his moderating duties.  

That is easily your stupidest, blindest, most incompetent, most inaccurate, most brown nosed, most ass kissing joke of a lint licking excuse of a post you’ve ever made in your entire MWC Board career. If there was an Onion for message boards, this would be Grade-A viral content. Honestly, I’d love to hear about the nature of the pics that Happycrapper has of you, because they have to be quite something.

But seriously, when it comes to who has helped shape the culture of the board we all love the past 15 years it goes 

1. @mugtang
2. @happycamper

With no third.  

Happy has spent so many countless hours directing our favorite awards and games on top of his moderation duties, he has never handed out a warning or ban that was not earned, not once.   

Posters here are being salty bitches saying because he has the audacity to MWCboard in the same vein as most everybody else and because of that he should not mod.  Those saying that are insane and have no idea what the dude has dedicated to this place.  If you want Happy gone, I am gone as well.  There is a reason why Happy was the ONLY moderator that had Mug's complete faith.  

Give your balls a tug bitches, happy can MWCboard the same way we all do and still be a great moderator.  

 

 

Oh just stop and get a room together for goodness sake. Holy crap.

So maybe some musings

For the last couple of days appears the confirmed new cases have been leveling off just a bit; there is a spike on the 11th but there was a big data belch on that day

CDC COVID Data Tracker

Deaths also haven't spiked up like cases have which many were fearing and again the spike on the 11th was data belch day

CDC COVID Data Tracker

Hospitalizations have seem not to be rising as quickly as they once were as they have been right around 152,000-153,000 for about three days now. 

https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/hospitalization-7-day-trend/inpatient-capacity

In Québec they have stopped testing for the general public as supplies aren't there to keep it going

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/pcr-tests-stopped-omicron-quebec-1.6304313

In BC they are asking people who are vaccinated and showing symptoms not to test and isolate for 5 days and if asymptomatic can then return to work. 

In the UK there is more optimism they have reached their peak with confirmed cases, which would be around the time some scientists and doctors thought they would, which if what keeps in the past keeps now, US will probably reach peak at the end of the month if not possibly a little sooner.

Some big cities in US there is some optimism they may have  peaked with new cases

Who's ass am I kissing, again, bud, and what would be the point?  I have no reason here to kiss anybodies ass, including telling the new owner he is being a +++++tard multiple times.

I am telling you, as a matter of fact, no other single poster has shaped MWCboard culture we all love as much as happy.  You don't like him because as a poster he kicks your ass up and down, Convert.  It has NOTHING to do with his abilities as a mod.  

It seems a lot of you shit heads (I say with all the love in me little heart) think a mod can't be one of you.

The vast majority of the time, nothing. Moving threads to the right board, merging threads about the same thing, etc... However some days it's a pretty shit gig.  Look at this thread where all happy did was give the suggestion a poster take some time off, while I gave the poster a warning point.

A lot of posters here are ungrateful little shits, happy has put in more hours than he ever needed to in order to keep the MWCboard alive.  Some of these tools have no clue.

The MWCboard would not be what it is today without happy dedicating years and years of his time and energy.  A lot of posters sound like crying bitches because happy owns them on topics from time to time and makes them think inwardly.  

Smart posters like @bornonthebluewho have a problem with happy have no clue what the dude has done for the board.  Not a single clue.  Happy has done more for this board than any three other posters combined.   He IS mwcboard to the extent any poster can be. 

Of course you can beat him or myself up in any topics if you feel that it should happen, but happy is a GREAT mode.

No one is saying he hasn’t done any good, of course he has. A lot of that has nothing to do with moderating content. But he’s got emotional and mental issues at times, and he deserves every bit of shit for it when it occurs. And his monster ego and Ultra PC God complex prevents him from seeing that he does cross the line, and it’s shameful that you refuse to acknowledge it either. The picture you’re trying to paint is pure comedy gold, dude. And sadly it’s fools gold. 

Being totally honest with your last few posts, I haven’t seen a person kiss someones ass like that on this board in the last 15 years that I can remember.

It’s not a problem most of the time, but when it does happen it’s totally unacceptable. The fact that you can’t see or refuse to acknowledge that there are times when he can be an absolute intolerant emotional mess, and hypocrite, then you just lost some respect from me.

I wasn’t even going to say anything about it, but clearly other guys also have an issue with it, so I mentioned it. The next time it happens, I’m not going to complain about it, I’m just going to quietly move on for good. Not that I expect anyone to give a rats butt if I do, because they absolutely shouldn’t. I’m just a very, very small part of the board.

I realize that the history of this place goes way back further than when I became a regular here. All the old timers here made this the best place on the Internet , and I realize happy played a major role in that, so I am very apreciative. 
 

he does have an ego , and expects others to expand their view on what he says , but never returns the same courtesy. It comes off as very condescending, and well prickish. He invents arguments you never made and then attacks you for it and then claims he won the battle, or painted you into a corner, lol. It’s underhanded , and cheap. You are left saying, hey I never argued that, asshole! , but because he has clout  around here  he unfairly uses it as leverage in an argument. @#1stunner, used to call this the Wenatchee two step and it was hillarious. He has run off good people , and contributors here with these tactics. 
 

listen , I’ll be the first to admit that happy has made some solid points , and made me think differently. He needs to return the courtesy. Because of the underhanded way he debates topics I can’t engage with him in good faith , so I won’t . I’ve put him on ignore. It’s best we don’t talk for a good long time.

The fact that this thread has turned into a referendum on @happycamper feels apt. Signifying the  coming end of the pandemic I think, since bagging kn the dude and complaining of him being a meanie weenie is a central focus in the pandemic thread. Maybe? Hopefully.

Whatever happened to free speech. There should be no mods. If you don’t like what someone says you can self censor using the ignore function.

We've had posters PM pictures of others home addresses and daughters, attempt to get other posters fired by contacting their employer,  and send them porn by pm to try to get them fired.  

An ignore function doesn't cover that, let alone dealing with bots and spammers. 

This weird turn in the thread has really reinforced how the gen 3 posters are... kinda wussy. They never dealt with the mwc vs wac flame wars.  They never dealt with obsessive maniacs threatening their livelihood.  They get butthurt easily while being unable to give up the last word.  

It's probably a sign that the board is a more hospitable place,  but it still makes me laugh at guys 30 years older than me being so thin skinned and entitled.

I can think of a great way to choose mods. Say the top 10 posters all time who have Made  at least one post in the last 6 months can nominate a candidate . Then let the top 50%of posters based on number of historical posts get to vote on said candidates. You have to have some skin on the game to nominate or vote . Repeat this process every two years.

Born, I think if you ask around,  you'll find people who have found me receptive to their arguments. 

It happens with you too.  It's just a lot more memorable to have a 5 page flame war than a 3 post exchange that ends in a like.

Plus you are a bit like me in that you often have to have the last word, but you have a thinner skin than I do.  The outcome of that is predictable :/
