Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

Talking about moderating on MTF for a moment. I don't think anything constructive is going to happen.

Having seen some of the posts that go unpunished while other posts in the same style lead to a warning or ban is ludicrous.

I think that moderators depend too much on reports. If enough people report a poster often enough, that poster will get banned, regardless of the contents of the posts. I'm convinced of that.
It's moderating by numbers.

The entire procedure to pick an appeal moderator is dodgy at best.

It didn't take me long to pick a side and so, I was left very disappointed when JMac had lost against Borg.
My dad: "don't worry, McEnroe will win Wimbledon next year"
Me: " You're just saying that to make me feel better "
My dad: "No, I mean it. I'm convinced that he's going to win it next year based on what I've seen this match".
dad.
Wow, Hilde's dad!

The inconsistency in MTF moderating, what else is new, although it's reached new lows as well I suppose. I haven't even read the appeal mod thread. I mush prefer to stay here at Rafa's.
I cannot believe Mike had such haters who reported him continuously, of course he gave them enough fodder.

I love that when I came by you'd recently talked about Castle. Season finale today!!! About to watch it - Maria you really need to catch up
and yes this ep that Evita mentioned was quite fantastic and just about the only time I have hardly paid attention to the main case

Hey Peta I already watched the season finale today before work and honestly I'm not sure how I feel about it. The episode itself was good but the cliffhanger... I think it's the wrong answer in this situation. I'm hoping the next season premiere will agree with me.

Castle was renewed last week for one more season (not that I was worried about it, the ratings are good enough), but I haven't heard anything about 2 seasons. Only the biggest rating hits like The Big Bang Theory or Lost are sometimes renewed for more than one season.

And Chris, nice of you to say Hi to WG

Yeah I didn't really read properly, I kinda only skimmed the news so thought I'd ask you. Would've seemed strange to renew for 2 years too even if they're doing well.

Just finished watching and yeah agreed, didn't like the ending at all. I'm sure they'll sort out something with the new season

Actually I understand and like the episode more, now that I've read some fan analysis. I suggest you go here, there's one post with a very veeeery long paragraph in it that explains Castle's thought process. It all makes sense to me now.

These days I'm watching more Korean TV shows than American ones. But I'm not watching that much actually, I want to learn Korean (and quickly!) to such a level that I don't need subtitles anymore. Once I do that I'm going to enjoy the hell out of their dramas
