    It's one thing to get abused by Fabio, who appears to have an exalted status that allows him to do as he pleases, but it's another thing entirely when Mark, a mod who is supposed to intervene in such a context, eagerly encourages it like some snotty little wimp jumping up and down in the school yard behind the resident bully. He does this time and time again, he abuses his powers as a mod just about every week and on matchdays innumerable times, and if you really take the role of mods seriously on here, it's about time you remove him from this position so that this stops happening. There's a line to be crossed and he's crossed it once to often.

    I'd like to ban you from changing your avatar. We don't change avatars here. It involves change.

    It confuses me no end when people change their avatar.

    In which thread was the name calling? I want to go and read it.

    Look at Ryan. He has arguably the worst avatar in LFC forum history, but does he change it? He does not.

    You dish it out and should be able to take it when it's given back to you. If you don't want it back, don't dish it out.

    Threads such as this one are my SCM guilty pleasure.  Utterly ridiculous, utterly compelling.

    This is how seriously I take my mod status and abuse my position. I wondered what the fuck Macca was on about when he was talking about how I should have intervened and reprimanded Fabio (as if anyway). How can I reprimand another Mod? Oh, Fabio isn't a Mod?

    This is all a bit silly really. Macca, take a pew and read your posts after the City game last week, in reply to anything remotely negative/critical. No one was actually consciously dragging down the win, just talking about where we can improve, yet you took it oh so personally and got a shitty on with anyone who tried to discuss Karius or whatever else that we could improve on.

    You're going into the mode you were in under Kenny, getting pissy with any who questions anything that's contrary to what the manager is doing, no matter how obviously valid. Which is usually why I end up on the end of one of your Celtic jibes.

    You're happy to give it out and then you cry foul when someone gives a bit back. Grow a pair.

    And for the record, I actually really like you, like I like Ryan, Rosco, Fabio and a load of other respectable posters who have something good to offer the place, but occasionally we can all be dickheads and things boil over. Shit happens.

    As much as Mark likes to weave his own self-justifying narrative out of nothing but his own head, the evidence is out there - threads where countless posters other than me call him out for his enduringly obdurate obsessions and his inability to see opposing views without resorting to abuse and personal insults (and then accuse others of doing it to him). He's the very kind of poster moderators were invented to keep in control. And people can't even put him on ignore.

    Hahhahaha!

    Why are so many people thin-skinned and genuinely angry and grumpy?

    Is it the time of the year? January is terrible, so maybe that's it

    I'm not sure if Fabio has 'exalted status' or what it means exactly, but if he *does*, perhaps it's because he helped start the site/ is related to or friends with the people who still run it/ has been around forever / is popular/ knows what he's talking about?

    It's not really a mystery, if you consider some or all of those factors
