Do not make this about yourself. And don't insult the forums. If you ever even read the suggestion threads, everyone seems to agree with the fact that you subtract something from the forum. I do not want to start up a flame war or bicker, but it really gets to me that you feel free to just say whatever the hell you want, and expect people to agree with it. The forum is fine, the members are fine, and the staff is fine. Well, actually right now the staff is as united as it has ever been.
As Dude_se (nomination for a mod right there), has said, what has happened in the past does not matter. It is the now that matters. You break the rules, insult members, insult the staff. Then you dare talk about flaming and the forum. You are probably the most prolific double poster on the forums (The reason being that if anyone else double posted that much, they would get a PB right away). How can you even consider saying anything about the state of the forum when you seem to be doing your best to contradict everyone, even David.

I did not want to say this, but you asked for it. I liked you Maurice, as both a mod and a person, but now that has changed. You used to be fair and understanding, and didn't meddle in matters that didn't concern you. Now you, as a mod, are just a minus to the forum.

Well for one if you disagree with the threads in the social loung and comments and suggestions why dont you wither A tell a moderator what you feel is questionable or go in there and comment on them yourself
as for the rest of that post i am not commenting as it would cause an argument in this perfectly alright so far thread , i dont see your reason for posting this here however thats not my problem
And what relevance does it hold if david did that then , i wonder if he would do the same today , i am thinking maybe he wouldnt

dude i am flattered realy and it would be an honour to be part of the mod team
but we shouldnt be talking about this here in open forum thats a decision that the mods make behind clsoed doors and i dont think the members should realy talk about who they think should be mods cos then favourites come into play and people get angry and argue

to be fair i dont think you should give out one and not the rest either tho
mods shouldnt be giving any at all realy cos it shows who you guys like/dislike and it can be used against you in the future
