As we start 2011 here at The Black Vault, I approach my 15th straight year of operating this site.

One of my main goals is to have a place where ALL OF YOU are comfortable posting, sharing your ideas, agreeing with others, and DISAGREEING with others. I also want you all to be comfortable with someone DISAGREEING with you.

Things get heated here. That's true at any public forum. But as I enter my 15th year, I want to make sure things dont get out of hand.

So I have worked hard to make every resource available to you to ensure a secure, fun, and friendly place to be.

We have moderators here who are helping make this place be just that. But of course, we can't watch every post, every minute of every day (especially me -- I'm trying to focus on other areas of the site to add more features) So we all (the moderators [mods] and me) rely on your help reporting those posts questionable and inapprorpriate.

Please know there is a "report post" button on the bottom of every post and every reply. This goes straight to all of the mods and myself to take action that is appropriate.

Please give some time for us to act. A reported post does not go dealt with within seconds... so be the bigger person and let us help you get the issue resolved before you fire back in retaliation! 😎

We appreciate your patience, and your understanding, as we enter the new 2011 year with a refreshed new goal of making The Black Vault THE BEST destination to in cyberspace! 🙂

I am trying to report your post, but I don't see the button.

I'd like to add that if you do report a post, consider a few things before you think nobody is doing anything. Last week was a good example of over reaction before we were able to figure what happened out. It may take a few days, so don't panic. Everyone has a day job, so it takes time to confer, even John and don't talk to each other for days, because we all have things we have to do, other than the message board. Consider it may be a weekend, and people are busy. Consider like last week, the holidays had everyone busy. Consider it takes the modes a few days to catch up with ongoing things.

The only way you stand a chance of making this place a safe place for the expression of ideas is if you retire your father and Billy as moderators.

I pop-in here to have a look at news and opinion to get a better idea of what's being said around the world, and (I think) every time I look around there is G2 acting like ... G2. Embarassed

And Billy! 😮 ... I fully expect Billy's foul-mouthed tirades are confined to the moderator' forum. But I know well what a two-faced liar he is and I would imagine Ninor knows this at least as well as I do.

WZ. Even if he is a fair and impartial mod, what's he going to do while the ugly sisters are sharing the bed?

And the other one - Sandra. She aligns herself with whoever she perceives to be closest to the authority. Positively sycophantic to you, John! Whilst Ninor got his nuts kicked-in by the dynamic duo I bet she was right there saying 'yes, you are so right' and did nothing to assist Ninor get fair treatment.

* But the BV might be able to survive is if you, John go back to modding alone, or if you find some less unsuitable mods.

2yen's worth.

Now I'm gone again. 🙂

Hmmm "The old hit and run tactic". And it seems to me that this mael character too cowardly to stay around for the rebuttal.

I reckon you are way out of line mael.

Seems to me you have an Axe to grind, I don't care what it is over .. I doubt anyone is interested if this is the way you deal with problems you have (real or imagined).

If you have that much of a problem with the site why don't you just cancel your account or instead (Now here's a novel approach) email the administrator and ask him to address your issues because the way you are dealing with things is what I would expect from a toddler.

The funny part about the lack of freedom of expression, is that Mael has never been edited or deleted for expressing his opinion about me or John, or insulting any other moderator, or his 10 year long anti-semitic jew hating, or his rants about Blacks or Mexicans. I've been a thorn in Maels side since he was Maelstrom and I would lock horns with him over his bigoted ways, that included its OK to beat your wife. I guess G2 is not supose to express his opinions, maybe its not G2 acting like G2, maybe its you can't handle when your backwards ideas got openly challenged Mael.

On the subject of Billy, both Mael and Ninor were convinced Billy did some underhanded editing of Maels posts. Both wanted Billy ousted, but jerkass G2 would not let the facts of what happened go unsolved, something did not add up. After a several week ordeal in the mod forum that got very heated the truth came out. As it turned out, another moderator mistakenly copied and pasted and a line was omitted by mistake, and it was all a misunderstanding and honest mistake. He mistakenly used the edit button and erased a line. But ol G2 just acts like G2, well in that case, I'm glad. It was a classic case ot 2 moderators, both allowing Billy to take a bum rape over something he never did, which goes to the character of them both. Allowing personal grudges to prevail, with no regard for the real truth of a mistake. Billy is as honest as the day is long, and has a heart of gold IMHO.

So in the spirit of freedom of expression, when you want to spread shit by coming back for an insult, like the old days, anti semetic bigots deserve it right back in their face.

And by the way Richard, all the people who you just trashed, have been concerned for you as a person, you had not returned for a while, hoping you were well and in good health. Everyone was concerned for you Richard.

Well mael you are partially correct in your assertion,
as far as my loyalty to John and the blackvault as
a moderator of his forum but also a long time friend
that I have serious adoration for.

But if you think I align myself with whoever I think
is closest to the authority here you are delusional.
I've been part of this site since I was 13 mael.
Who do I need to align myself with that I haven't
made friendships with in all the time I've been
active here? Please. 🙄

You found this as a doorway to contribute
more conflict. With your main point being
that if you are not a mod no one should be.
If you would have had the blackvaults best
interest in mind while you were a moderator
you wouldn't have in the end just caved in
to your own nonsense. As far as I'm concerned
both you and Ninor turned your backs on the
rest of the moderators, the admin, other members,
at the vice of arrogance.

I have no doubt that greeney2, wingy, billy, shadow,
SWR, and I along with Johns overseeing can
now work very well for the benefit and better
outlook of the blackvault and its members/future
members.
