Re: How can I "moderate" my own Topic?

said by nwrickert:

I guess that means that somebody other than the mods is looking at them

And I think we can all sleep better at night knowing that.

You must be thinking of some other site because Anonymous See Profile has never been a moderator here.

That's possibly the lamest joke I've seen in weeks.

Oh they get worse, just give us time. There's a team of trained "monkey" working on them.

At one point I posted a new Topic. A User posted a #1 reply: a real slap-in-the-face personal attack. I did not answer that reply but someone else (a registered User) did post #3 reply and he was NOT harsh.

My own twisted belief is that it's not necessarily the posts on DSLR that need moderating: it's your own reaction to them (same deal goes for me, too).

The responses you get on DSLR concerning just about anything are going to range from mind-numbingly stupid, to Nobel Laureate-caliber clever, (and useful) to, yes, virtual slaps in the face. The thing to bear in mind is that the responses are typed by human beings; human beings are capable of all of these types of behaviors.

If someone responds to a civil question with a personal attack, perhaps the thing to focus on isn't the fact that they're trying to pick on you. Perhaps the real problem is that they have so little going for themselves, that the only way they have to get their jollies is by picking on random strangers over the InterTubes.

That, to me, is sad.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that DSLR is pretty much a cross section of humanity and that you're going to find the the Good, the Bad, and the Helpful on these boards; just take what you find useful and discard the rest. I, too, used to belief strongly in "controlling my environment." Years later, (far too many years later) it occurred to me that the only thing I could ever really hope to control was me (and my own reaction to things).

I can promise you that, if you hang around here a while, you'll see a few things that will put a big smile on your face. Please try to be patient and hang in there in the meantime.

Looks like that scenario is NOT going to play out.
