Members of the Moderator Board:
On May 31st, 2014 Gamespy's servers will be shut down. This comes after all of IGN's subsidiaries were axed by Ziff Davis Media.
The Moderator Reformation has finally begun. Rejoice!
Greetings all, news on the debating society, future plans and happy new year!

My apologies TKAzA for this utter disgrace. Take my word. I am going to be draconian with this group now.
Looking back at it MattmanDude and Mr.Walrus had the power to stop the whole flame-war but they didn't. That's lousy and lazy "moderation." Part of me thinks they enjoyed the flame war. They were both active here while this all happened and kept every comment and image that was uploaded even though everything should have been deleted instantly (since everything was ToS violation). None of what was posted during that time had anything to do with this group. It was an all out flame war and spitting contest.
Personally I think this group needs moderators who actually do something. The current mods have shown that they're incapable of putting their foot down other than making comments begging people to stop. This isn't me volunteering either, I wouldn't have the time or patience to moderate this group.
If you take this advice and get admins who actually do something then future trolling/flamewars etc won't even occur because they would be put down before they could even begin.
We didn't want to say so at the time because we feared that it would intice worse trolling... but we actually didn't have full admin privilege (we do now for the record). We kick members or manage the group. All we could really do was delete comments and images and each time we did it just caused worse crap to get posted.
Under the circumstances we did the best that we could.
We couldn't* kick members...
The storm is passing and I hope everyone's starting to cool off.
I just wanted to briefly address the issue.
Firstly no one is going to get banned... at least not tonight. Can't promise tomorrow... we'll see.
Secondly, it's my sincerest hope that some rational thought and debate can be returned to this group. All it takes is for someone to be the bigger man and call off the fighting. I wonder who will make that move first? I understand it involves swallowing some pride... I guess that's why sometimes it's harder to make peace than go to war.
And thirdly... I could go for some waffles right now. It's a quarter to midnight but still.
Anyway, what tomorrow will bring I have no idea, but we shall cross that bridge when we come to it. Peace be with us all.
I will now bring forth a debate that will shock the very foundations of modDB!

So the Wind of Change had come?
And the litter of the earth is swept away!
