  • I suggest better and more unbiased moderation.

    The board needs better patrolling and more unbiased moeration given the fact that I've seen a whole thread over 5 pages long spweing racial hatred of people just because they happen to be white. My brother married a "white" girl from Texas who is a sweetheart and had a beatiful baby daughter together who I love inmensely. If this board allows so called reverse racism (to me racism is racism no matter who is on the receiving end) then please let me know because If it is I obviously made a mistake even joining. Being a Puerto Rican is not about hating your fellow man based on the color of your skin regardless...

    You have recently joined this board. I think you are not aware of a lot of things that have occurred. If you speak of Falu Mohammed....that dude hasn't posted here in YEARS.

    In the past this forum suffered greatly from lack of monitoring. At the same time, this board is DYING. No one is posting. And if you start reporting the few members who post regularly over threads that are YEARS old with people who have been BANNED in the past for bad need to stop and realize, you need to READ this board for YEARS.

    There will be many people you don't know at all in this board. Your job will be to STIMULATE new conversations in many topics related to Puerto Rico. I can't do this by myself anymore. It takes a whole community that is active and participating to keep a forum alive. I hope you don't worry about judging people too much and just try to get them TO PARTICIPATE more.

    If you get them to participate more....that is a great job accomplished!! With controversial topics like religion, politics, and etc. I say give people some leeway. Just don't let them get very personalistic or offensive. But a little back and forth in controversial topics is fine.

    If people can't get along at all. Let people be, and suggest they IGNORE each other and go with other less 'difficult' members. Getting upset and overreacting and trying to over regulate this board because someone says something racist against someone is not going to help our present circumstances. We need as many people participating as we can muster.

    Get used to having people with different political views than yours. It is normal. Don't take it personally. It is just the basic variation one sees in life.

    Welcome as our new moderator. I hope you find a lot of things to talk about!!

      There is a huge difference between having difference of opinion politically and to post vitriolic racial hatred. Such hatred should never, ever tolerated under any circumstances no matter who is the target. and forums all over are dying at various degrees as people now seem more interested in using Tweeter nowdays that to post in a board.

        Didn't you realize that Falu Muhammad left this board YEARS ago? He is not around. There are literally THOUSANDS of posts and many, many threads. Most of which I have no time to read at all. Obviiously you read a very ancient thread and was offended by the racism of Falu. Many members did not like Falu Muhammads racial commentary. But at the time admin was different and the mods did not do much to tell him to not be a racist. That was then. This is now. The man is not on here at all.

        Don't waste time on old threads. Right now we need to build up this forum with new topics. If you start jumping into Clip's topic and give your opinion but you did not edit him for inappropriate content (which is the only reason to jump into someone else's writing) then you don't know how to use the moderation features. You can reply with your reply....but to jump into someone else's topic and comment AGAINST the content and not on a rule being violated is NOT appropriate.

        I hope you realize that the person whom you ASSUME is NEW clip314 is really not a new member. He is the same member from 2000 but with a new screename due to privacy reasons he already explained to me about. He is an older gentleman a psychologist....from New York. Also Puerto Rican as well. He has been a member on here since 2000. You just jumped into that thread with an opinion and no legit reason to go in could reply with your opinion. No need to go into his writing.

        If someone is inappropriate. Give them a warning first. Via PM....or with a posting. If they continue....edit the post. If they don't stop then either have admin ban them or send me a message. But we need to give people an opportunity to express themselves first. And to be a part of the community.

        Hope my advice helps.

          Again my apolgies for my apparent intrusive behavior into other member's posts but that the time I had no clue I had been given Moderation rights. I found out latter and tried to fix the problem but it as quite a few threads latter so the damage was done and the Adm. removed my Mod rigths at least for the time being. If he reinstates me I hope he gives me a heads up first.

            Administrators: kick the Bunkmajor out

            This guy Punkmeister is a fake and and he is on a big ego trip playing god with the posts and posting false information about posters. He is getting mad at people who posted here YEARS ago and have not been seen since. Who the heck decided in the Adm. to give this vendepatria a Moderating job on this board? If this site was almost dead then now this guy has given it a final death blow. Comment on that you arrabalero, cuponero, reggetonero, while I savor the days spend in a little island off of Puerto Rico. Please get rid of this nuisance and maybe the posters will come back again.

            Thanks Suki for the accurate portrayal which helped dispell the lies and innuendo that the Bunkmeaister has tried to impose on all of us about me.

              And you are such a bright example with your SPAM...

              Tun no vives en la isla, ni vas a vivir en la isla es mas ni tan siquiera la has visitado una sola vez en tu vida, y por eso no tienes vela en este entierro. Quedate por Winsconsin y deja a los que viven en la Isla en paz...

                Una garrapata zalapastrosa en


                Mira, S.O.B. to you. The reason I call you these names is because YOU started spewing lies about me and my background, calling me names and even putting "en tela de juicio mi puertorriquenidad", so infeliz. Telling people that I was trying to impose my views on other people, that I have never lived in PR or that I was not even born there... que cojones caballero!!! But since that "other people" are intelligent and smart enough to MAKE THEIR OWN MINDS ( unlike you know who) and knowing full well that my opinion is MY opinion and no one else's, he decided to go after me "pero le salio el tiro por la culata". All the people here know who I am and my backgroung, which have been posted here since I joined this site in 2003. (el estupido ni siquiera tiene dos dedos de frente para buscar aqui mismo mi perfil e informacion sobre quien soy yo) Ni tu ni tu marido tienen los pantalones para dudar de mi abolengo y mis raices ni acallar mi voz ni mis sentimientos.. Si te quieres suicidar por perder lo de moderador porque no brincas de tu ego gigante y te esplayas en el pavimento para asi el resto de nosotros poder seguir nuestra vida normal.
                What happened to this loser is that he checked the board, and since I was the only survivor still posting, like THE PORN RUSSIAN SPAMMER, he attached himself to me like a sanguijuela, to bask in my glory and intelligent posts and make me a scapegoat for his own failures as a human being. He could not go after Suki or Nacionalista because of their positions in this board so the only one left for a vicious attack was me, y se me pego en una pata como una garrapata sarnosa. What had he contributed to this site since he joined? Attacking people's ethnic background, messing up the boards and acting like a spoiled brat because he can't achieve his wicked goals. In other words: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
                Now let me go back to my pina colada and this beautiful beach right here in the Caribbean Sea and forget this zalapastroso Hijo de la Comay. I will be back more anticolonialista y mas barbaro que nunca after this vacation. Your nightmare has just begun!!

                    A good moderator understands, from the outset, that other people are entitled to hold different views, to see the world in different ways, and to bring their own unique perspectives when commenting on various issues. A good moderator likes people, and likes people to feel free to express themselves, without attracting rancor or abuse. A good moderator is tolerant, respectful, and wise enough to understand that, if used properly, a site like this can be a social haven, and a means of promoting Puerto Rico's history, culture, tourist attractions etc.

                    A good moderator certainly wouldn't view a site like this as some kind of Trojan Horse to sneak inside, with a view to attacking people. A good moderator would have no trouble understanding that it's a very sloppy, careless, and ineffective soldier who leaves his battle plan lying around and then has the arrogance and stupidity to link it back to this site. As botched attempted takeovers go, it's up there with the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

                    So I think I can say with some confidence that PunkMaister won't have to worry any more about whether or not he's likely to get another shot at moderating here. Shooting yourself in the foot is a serious offense under military regulations, but hey - this is just a civilian website, open to people from all over the world, so there's no need to lose any sleep over a self-inflicted wound.
