Oh well..whether or not any of this enables you to make any earth shattering decisions at least it has got you some attention and ego stroking.

I await with bated breath a second announcement. The one where Gregkavarnos tells a grateful world that in view of the overwhelming support he has received he will be postponing his wee break...
unless we continue to be beastly to him...
It really doesn't take Freud does it ? :lol:

Irrespective of what others in this thread may think, I wish you a peaceful and fruitful break away.

Now get outta here before somebody says something else they might regret! :namaste:

Greg, as I said before I support you and your roll as a moderator. I know how difficult it can be.

I've followed this thread and have reread a few others where debates between you and a few others have gone on and on. These members are able to "press your buttons" so to speak, and a couple of them just jump on the control panel and hit every button they can.
You and I seem very much alike when a situation like this happens.....we react quickly and sometimes not in the most mindful way. But we are human. And the other members act the same way. A tough situation to remedy.
I am going through some difficulties in a relationship right now and in this I see what is happening. I know the difficulty in refraining from a smart *ss reply, trust me there my friend as I'm not to good at it. But I see this reaction from you time to time and I believe that's one thing that some members may have issue with. Others can't handle an authoritive figure sending a pm with a warning.
You may consider asking another mod to step in to a subject if they turn into a flaming battle. The mods are a team, so asking another team mate to step in is always an option.
I have been a moderator on very large forums and understand the difficulties involved. So maybe even another mod seeing whats happening could just step in as a team mate to help you out.
I hope this might help in your situation my friend.
Once again thank you for all you do around here.

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them

The words and actions of all members (including moderators and administrators) will be assessed with respect to the Terms Of Service and you will be notified of the outcome of your complaint via PM or e-mail. As with public complaints about posts, please do not publicly complain about moderation, as that is disruptive to the forum and is not the appropriate method for resolving such disputes.

Greg please cease trying to get people to intentionally violate the TOS on reporting.
do not ask us to publicly complain about moderation Greg.

this thread is about you(Greg) seeking Constructive criticism for wrong doings and characteristic traits that you wish to see fixed in yourself.
this thread is not about who has a problem with Greg bash on him or complain publicly about Greg's Moderation ........(so quit asking for that Greg its against the TOS)

I am astounded! You actually think I am trying to bait you into breaking the Terms of Service? :jawdrop:
Why would I want to do that? :shrug:

Two scenarios;

1) A fight breaks out, no-one steps in to break it up
2) A fight breaks out, someone steps in to break it up getting hurt in the process.

Greg, you are scenario two. You've stepped in where others have feared not to and have got hurt in the process. It's also obvious that others enjoy goading you. This says more about them than it does about you.

I wish you well,
Gassho,
Seishin
