    A lot of people join up without fully reading the TOS and then are surprised when their thread gets moved. The TOS are to some people like the fine print on a contract. There's no secret to why the mods do what they do. Members need to take some responsibilty if they want to be part of the community.

    The mods do a great job... as for your post being moved and not knowing,
    if you would take the time to read the Rules you would know this is how they operate ,it's no secret
    as for off topic talk,Again read the rules they state that off topic posts will be removed .. most of the time they just chime in and get it back on topic if you want to talk about anything other than Hammocks a PM works fine
    as for pleasing everyones needs ... that will never happen

    also a DIY Alky stove is NOT a Hammock related item so yes it will be moved

    again .. if this is not for you ,thats fine
    i'm sure there is another site out there that can fill your needs

    Good luck in your search

    Sorry to hear. Happy I do not feel the same. I have always understood my relationship to this forum as visiting a friends house. I feel comfortable and enjoy the stay but I always remember that it is their house and rules - not mine.

    You are welcome to feel the way that you feel. I really appreciate the way HF is run.
    In my first days I had some threads moved. Figured it out and accept the way things are here.
    This is my cyber home.
    Well done Mods. You can never please them all and if you are....something is amiss.

    Happy trails


    I come here to discuss Hammocks and associated gear, I like the way the forum is moderated and many thanks to those who make it possible for us to have a place to do that.

    IMO, after brobro said he was moving on, there was no point to continue the conversation.

    It's one thing to discuss things openly (like the chat idea, for instance)...but a "this place sucks and you suck, I'm outta here" post isn't especially productive, nor is it worth continuing since he's announced his abandonment.

    Arguing at an absentee OP gains nothing.

    I do not have any problems with the way this place is run/modded. I have never, or at least that I can remember, ever have a thread moved or deleted. This IS hammock forums, not alky stove forum. If you post in the correct sections, then there is no problems.

    You know the old saying, "If you want something done right, do it yourself", well if your not happy, start your own forum and see just how "easy" it is.

    Around here, 1 bad apple doesn't spoil the bunch, it just gets moved.

    Sorry for the rant, MODS, keep up the great work, I know I appreciate it.

    I disagree. The OP directly said "there is a growing ire among many of the forum members about just how they are treated. " Now that is either hyperbole or the OP is part of a hive mind which is essentially silent to many of us. If it is hyperbole then it should be shown as such. If there really is such a feeling, then others need to come forward and voice their discontent. Presumably, this thread is an opening to do that.

    The mods have been responsive to popular opinion in the past. If there is such a level of discontent I believe they would take it seriously, if not act outright. I am very content here, even tho some issues close to my heart are not considered "hammock related" enough. Oh well... sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I am unfamiliar with the history of the original poster and speaking from the perspective of someone who has had a moderator remind me that I might be a little too close to the line I appreciate their dedication to the site, it's values and TOS.

    With respect to dissenting opinions, I am a firm believer in the phrase "you can disagree without being disagreeable" and that is one of the many things the moderators actively ummmmm. .. moderate.

    Sometimes a dissenting opinion is viewed as harsh simply because there is dissent, but if everybody agreed with everything I thought, said or did the world would be lacking in so many ways.

    Thank you moderators.
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Yep. Like when in a friends house you go by the house rules. I had an old timer tell me once that if you ever get to the point you think you can't learn anything new, you won't. Good luck finding the place you seek.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
