    No staff action is necessary.

    When the complaint is against you, you are not the appropriate person to decide on the staff action for the complaint. :nono:

    You are right, however. It's the Red Room and spamming pretty much has to be epic before we act on it.

    Oh joy, staff members spamming. While not explicitly against the rules, it doesn't look good.

    Of course, I hadn't read the whole thread then and it's worse than I thought when I commented earlier.

    Is there a reason you felt the need to derail the whole topic, Clyde?

    True. Which is why I only shared my opinion here.

    Yep.

    I disagree. Staff members are first and foremost members, they should get to enjoy the forums like every other member. And like every other member that means adhering to the rules. And I always have. More than that - I don't neg rep, I never make personal attacks, and I've nothing but respect for member privacy. Oh and abusing staff access has always been a straight-up no go.

    My motivations are simple, always have been, I've here to have fun. To have a laugh in this virtual pub we all enjoy frequenting. No topic was derailed, it was five posts deep into poo-flinging before I even posted.

    More than that, plenty of members enjoyed my participation. And I daresay my posts increased participation. What I don't understand is the offense.* It seems entirely phony, is anybody really outraged?




    *The basis for the outrage, and who is outraged is becoming more and more clear.

    It's the Red Room...who cares?

    Letting staff be posters here really solved any gossiping about members behind their backs bullshit other boards deal with. Since we can talk frankly to them right to their face like anyone else there is generally no need for "letting off steam" in other, inferior ways.

    A little spam and some spicy arguments are a small price to pay for that, IMO. I think it's awesome the Shelter is the most boring forum on the board and it's not because there are other hidden rooms or secret squirrel PMs..there just isn't any sneaky BS among staff going on.

    Yeah, but you're carrying on like a dick.

    Too much wine, man.
