For deleted posts, I would appreciate if the moderator could PM the poster and tell them what has been deleted and why. I personally have had only two posts deleted that I know of(not including those included in entire deleted threads). In the first case, Andy Z PM'd me and gave me an explanation, and so I never again posted on that subject matter. The second case was just since the surge/escalation in moderators -- I just happened to notice it was gone when I went back to the thread.

If the real goal is to bring up the standards of the cooler, it would be more helpful to know what those standards are and when we are violating them, not having posts just disappear under cover of night.

Also, I hope these standards reflect those of BOL Management, and are not just knee-jerk reaction to a small group of frustrated complainers. I think in addition to moderating the posts, the moderators should track posters who complain far in excess of others. There may be a few people who are just too sensitive, and it may be better if they just be advised to stay away if it upsets them so much.

Amen TICG...Amen!...I also find it "interesting" that some of those frustrated over the posts became the moderators...

That seems to be quite fair.

Interesting observation as I'm getting ready to come back.

Please notice that two Queens have made it to moderator status and that all the listed moderators are democrats!

I do wonder, how can banking be so conservative oriented and this site be so liberal - is it because an attorney actually runs this site?

Not sure what significance the letters in the screen names have... and all 9 of them are democrats? Are you sure about that? Cuz I'm nearly sure you're wrong.

But, that's now - I could be added to the list - I would only eliminate the stupid posts or 90% of the posts in the cooler, whichever is greater.

By the way, ComplyGuy - it's not what you know - it's what I tell you! Live it!

I have, on average, moved 2 threads to the garbage this week. I just don't advertise it.

I have recently deleted threads linking the killing of insurgents in Afghanistan and how to get around employers' blocking of web serfing by employees.

Any disagreements and I would be glad to discuss in a PM.

No frustration here TIGC and Neo, I want BOL to be the best professional site on the web for bankers. Moderating the cooler is my volunteer duty, and I intend to carry out that duty to the best of my ability.

I remain -- "Reporting for Duty"

Please PM me for any further discussion

You're more like a RINO.

Man, the qualification for moderator have gone to hell in Devil Queens handbasket, but the interesting part is that it's all low-level bankers with plenty of time on their hands during the business day - now, let's think about that - the moderator group has time to post to the cooler and patrol the cooler - during the business day - I say fire all of them and let them volunteer here full-time for free. On the other hand, free labor is a good thing, especially as all the posters are on the paying end.

the truly funny thing about it X is that some of the moderators were the ones bringing into question the amount of time some people spent in the cooler.
