I've been reading this forum for nearly 5 years. Too many people look back with rose tinted glasses.
Ah well, part of the joy of being a mod is that most people think they could do a better job than you but few are actually prepared to do it

You do know that one of the conditions of being a mod is that you should avoid getting into disputes and arguments between fanbases, right?

If you could stop yourself from thinking you are "the mother" of MTF maybe things would be a little better for you.

This is not GM. No need to get personal here.

Re: A suggestion; take it any way you wish

^^ I am not getting personal. The OP equates moderating GM as being similar to punishing her kids. I am saying that MTF is not equivalent to her kids

I didn't refer to specific posts and I am really not. But my comment was jumped on immediately instead of what I hope.

Things are just fine for me. Nothing on this site will ever get to me. You included. And god forbid I should be anybody's mother here. When I started this thread I did not consider any of the Rafa fans who posted here as starting trolling threads. However I am not surprised that you all took it among yourselves to respond. But please feel free to respond now and I will gladly let you have the last word.

Your comment immediately followed mine so I responded. Was not "jumping" on it.

There are many posts between my last post and the one before. And I did not quote your post. So yes, that's "jumping".

I am not responding here because I feel the need to have the last word but because I feel the need to clarify.

And it does not matter whether you refer to Rafa fans or anybody else. Please don't club us all together as we are all individuals with differing opinions.

The reason I responded the way I did is because I take issue with statements like, " We are the adults here. The rest of them behave like kids". I find that point of view to be extremely condescending.
