Interesting exchange with "Jesse_O":
I would appreciate it if the incentive thread was unlocked. It's a decent topic, and the cadre of trolls who manipulate moderation into locking these threads are the issue, not the discussion itself.
drchaos brought up some valid points in that last post; I would like to be able to respond. Locking threads solves little; it's what the trolls want: the forced ending of the discussion, because then they control the dialogue.

Or, barring that, delete that last post, because I don't have the opportunity to respond to it, and it only increases the tone of hostility on this board.
I've told you all this before, and I'll tell you again: locking threads does not solve anything...it makes things worse. Allowing yourselves to be manipulated into locking threads because the cadre of trolls will not tolerate dissenting views puts them in control.
You've already seen how they will turn on you and CBCS. Pretending these issues don't exist doesn't solve them.

I'm sorry. Since you never actually asked a question, I figured you were just informing me of your opinion and didn't expect a response. That thread is locked and will remain so. Thanks for voicing your concerns and for sharing your insights into internet trolling.

Your response here is unprofessional and discourteous. I requested one of two things, quite clearly:
1. Unlock the thread so that I could respond.
2. Barring that, delete the last post.
There was nothing unclear about either of these things, yet you chose to ignore me, because you are offended.
Forwarding to Steve Ricketts, though I'm not sure how much good that will do.
Let's explain something to you: You are under "intense scrutiny", Jesse (I don't know your last name, or I would refer to you as that), because you have power. You have power over other people. That comes with responsibility. If you don't want that responsibility, you need to step down as a moderator.
On top of that, you have consistently behaved in an unprofessional manner, as demonstrated by your snide response here. Does your response here solve anything? No. Does it prove anything? No. It just makes the situation more volatile, and pisses off a CBCS customer.
You cannot complain about "those who cause drama" when you, yourself, are causing drama with retorts like these.
Check your attitude, Jesse_O. You want to know why you're "under intense scrutiny"...?
THAT is why.

Sent this to Steve Ricketts:
I have mentioned this before, and nothing seems to have been done about this. I had the following exchange with "Jesse_O":
(Sent screenshot of above)
If you're wondering why you have to deal with people bashing the shit out of CBCS...this is why.
Jesse_O has the audacity to complain about "being under intense scrutiny because of people who like to cause drama" when he is a moderator. Moderators have power over others. They are in positions of authority. With great power comes great responsibility, remember...? Those in authority OUGHT to be under higher scrutiny; that's how those people are prevented from becoming corrupt.
If Jesse_O resents being scrutinized, it is long, long, longgggg past time for him to step down, or be removed.
