Why would you edit out the heated discussion in "Life on the Trollbridge" and LEAVE the "girls are Wimps" thread, which started this whole mess in the first place? ( on purpose I might add) Is that thread "legitimately about gaming?"
It's simple. I haven't been here for several weeks, I logged in at 4 AM or so to find a bunch of ugly stuff on the boards, I spent 15 minutes cleaning up a lot of the chaff, and I saw reference to the "girls" thread but didn't have the time to find it. As soon as I get around to it, out it goes as well.
Frankly, when I get posts like these I get tempted to just flush the whole board. Please don't tell me how to run my board. If you have an issue, PM me about it and I'll try to address the issue. Filling up another thread with arguing doesn't make a lot of sense to me. (This isn't just aimed at devadasi; he just happens to be in my crosshairs at the moment.)
EDIT: Thank you to my moderator team for purging the "girls" thread. In retrospect I wish I had taken the extra 5-10 minutes to find it this morning, and perhaps this thread wouldn't have gotten so heated. Apologies to anyone who I have offended by not doing a good job as an admin.
I will never tell you how to run your forum again. Garaunteed.
Though I have to say, if you were taking your admin duties seriously, you might have known i wasn't a "he" by now.

I'm sorry about the gender thing; clearly I wasn't being observant.
For the record, I'm in favor of female gamers. My wife, two daughters, and sister are (or have been at one time) members of my gaming group. I go out of my way to be sure that they feel welcome at my gaming table, and I would demand similar respect for them in a forum I administer. Honestly, I don't hang out much here anymore and that's why I have other fine gentlemen who do most of the moderator stuff around here for me.
I'm sorry you feel that way, because I did my darndest to clean up the mess here and certainly would like you to stay and feel at home in the TrollBridge. All I ask is a similar courtesy that folks with issues contact me or another moderator rather than publicly calling me out.
EDIT: After reflection I realize that I'm guilty of doing the same thing I accuse you of, in that I'm continuing a back-and-forth exchange on the public boards. Please accept my apology and I will pursue this offline.

For the record, I was wondering where Devadasi went. Now I know. Shame on you moderators for allowing it. And for the record, it wasn't the only instance where people got trolled. There was (and still is) a poster on here, who made me so uncomfortable that I changed ids on the Trollbridge, and finally stepped away for awhile, myself. If you moderators look through your pm history, you should know who this is. I'm back, but only provisionally. I don't like reading about this sort of stuff - particularly when it involves someone who was as productive and positive as Devadasi was. I'm NOT telling you what to put up with, Vin, and I don't want to discuss this publicly, because this should be all about T&T. But it needs to be said.
