Default Has IB thrown the Mods under the bus?

As the years pass here, I see many valued members leaving for one reason or another.
I feel the mods have been forced to abandon their moral compass for the greater good of corporate greed.

IB seems to be more concerned with drama and traffic, read advertising, than the stated mission of the truth. A boating library if you will.

A Pm to me is nothing more than email. I`ll share it with anyone. Nothing is private on the web. A Private Message? Are we prepubescent girls here? If you can not be a man/woman and talk to me as if I were in the room, don't bother.

Is IB going to send firemen to our houses to burn all of our books?

Anyone else having connectivity problems since this recent unpleasantness?

not to cheery,
gfs

No thoughts either way about "under the bus" , but I often wonder why someone would volunteer their personal time to help a corporation make money.

It is kinda weird. I have noticed a change since I joined. I can only imagine what you long-time users have seen.

It is strange the mods have been really quiet since the whole BOE thing.

The MODS have to do something.
I mean if they were not seen as doing anything they may lose their Modships.

There does seem to be a different air about things more recently though. And not for the positive.

You would prefer, maybe, "Yer Modship"?

I have no problem with you folks - I think you do a good job.

Note: I don't worry about banned camp, as I have the "old, tired and useless" membership status.
