I think many complaints should be public so others can chime in. After all , a good govt is largely transparent. But a good govt also has "secret meetings" that if used properly adds to the common good. Its a balance.
p.s. said already per above

Not any more. I'm strictly on the outside looking in, for the most part.

In real life, sober, they are lovely, I assure you, and will give an arm and a leg to help you. Late at night, after a day of working in this mad, Alice's other side of the mirror mini cosmos we like to call Taiwan, and half a bottle in, that is another story. Talk about the school of hard knocks!

Constructive Criticism is always welcome but what some members do will really put guests off from joining and members posting.
Please consider the effects of what you post,
I totally agree with you. There are a lot of dickheads on Forumosa who enjoy pissing on other people and their POV's. This is why a lot of people don't bother with Forumosa any more - or do so less and less - except sporadically or to find something out for practical purposes.
Strange the different viewpoints, I guess. From what I've heard OFFLINE (although what do EYE know about this site, after all!), the vast majority of ex-posters have but ONE complaint: The Modding. It IS that simple. And TRUST me! I know FAR, FAR, FAR more ex-flobbers and FAR FAR more extant ones than you could ever HOPE to know. But whatever. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share, should I be so inclined. But I'm not. Because of the mods. Or at least because of the way they're being directed. Simple as that.

So what? It's all just part of the pendulum.
