Hardest Part of Moving To Costa Rica: The Yahoo Groups Forums — 7 Comments

  1. No no… keep the smart assery. I honestly believe we need more smart asses around to keep the idiots in check.

  2. Oooh, I have lots of gripes about moderation myself – sometimes that there isn’t any of it, and sometimes too much. Done by anal compulsives.
    My big gripe is that a large gardening Yahoo group in my area that I STARTED years ago is now moderated by someone else, who won’t let me post directly to the group anymore because god forbid I should ever link to something I’ve written. Which MIGHT somehow promote my career. And we all know that gardenwriters already make way too much money.

    • Right. Linking to something on our blogs somehow really pisses moderators off. One called it “advertising” which is forbidden. Sheesh.
