    The criteria being you must be:

    1) Anti Low Carb
    2) A control freak 
    3) A Big Pharma shill

    It would appear Admin are making the it more democratic when appointing mods  Shocked it was very undemocratic when without any announcement the cherub and noblehead were foisted on the unsuspecting members  Twisted Evil


    Admin said "post history, warnings/bans, likes and general sentiment are looked at." that was completely ignored in the appointments of the cherub and noblehead both have a long history of anti low carb activity. In the cherubs case that has been borne out by the amount of bans and editing of low carbers.

    Member at the flog

    "Thank you @Administrator . I'm all for transparency so can you tell me if there would be any objection to nominees also being mods or admins at another forum which includes DCUK members?"

    Admin

    "If the nominee's current involvement extends to forums that either have or are harassing, bullying or displaying untoward behaviour towards members of this forum (or any other person for that matter), then they will not be put up for nomination."

    Looks like it's a no no for any of us lads. affraid I am wondering why they need five more over there, are they about to have a clear out of the existing mods? Although they talk about the increased membership, the half awake know 90%+ never post from one year to the next. OK it's the same on many forums including here. I have to admit, the wanna be a mod thread is interesting. I see no one is voting for Sid, can't think why rofl Strange no votes for Phoenix, I know she is the Anti Christ as far as low carbing goes, but she has forgotten more about diabetes than all the hopefuls put together.

    That's bit rich coming from Admin that appointed moderators who are doing just that to the members of DCUK.

    I'm all in favour of bullying the bullies  Twisted Evil

    What a spectacle eh Andy, who will get a mods job? Are the present morticians suffering from deletion and banning fatigue? we need to be told. Have to admit, he with the shiny white teeth come up with a peach of a business model. Get people working for free day after day, while he flogs the members details to big pharma and trousers the wedge. Money for old rope I reckon.

    I can only think it's wanting some sort of power over other folks? You can help people by posting, not being a mod, the site is setup, the new mods won't have any power to make any real changes to anything, just expected to troll (excuse the pun) through whiny post reporting morons who are trying to get one over someone else, or getting sucked up to, it's basically a prefect role issuing detentions, and folks are fighting over it under a pretence of democracy, the person who gets the most votes will then be vetted and the existing corrupt assholes will chose a mod, how is that democracy? At least they were always honest about it being a dictatorship upto now, I'm relieved they beat any compassion out of me and no longer care about the place

    Wingnut and Sprocket have several clients requiring top flight diabetes forum moderators. No previous experience required and knowledge of diabetes related matters is not a pre-requisite, indeed those with a sound understanding of diabetes control will not be considered. Any applicant who has ever used or heard of terms such as low carb or Paleo diets need not apply.

    The ideal candidates will be obsessed with the three word game and must be a cut and paste expert. These positions would suit a collector of shoes and cheap jewellery and preferably be fully conversant with Kentucky Fried Chicken and take away junk food. The successful candidates are likely to be statin users and must believe healthy fats are the drain clogging work of Beelzebub. Those addicted to carbs and big pharma medication will be given preferential treatment.

    Your duties will include the promotion and the aiding and abetting of forum numbskull's, especially members who ridicule and ensure knowledgeable Healthcare Professionals leave the forum swiftly. Medical Professionals have caused great fear and alarm with the forum fantasists, and long term trouble makers, and will not be tolerated.

    If you feel you are what we are looking for, and meet the above requirements apply in confidence today. Address all correspondence to Monty Beantipper Head of Forum Recruitment. Fat ex cops that used to be a mod need not apply !

    Yes I knew him and Jenny (Blood Sugar 101) and a whole bunch of others, including several who left, back in the days of usenet. I lurk occasionally but no longer post.

    Curiously there was a big fuss on alt.support.diabetes (the newsgroup) when people started using +1 too. I couldn't understand it, I first saw it used on debugging forums, where it was used to confirm a bug after it was first described - people would post +1 instead of "Me too!"

    Many members were issued with warnings or banned at DCUK just for using +1, just goes to show how petty they are

    As we know their are no low carb moderators at DCUK just anti LC, and I don't think this proposal from Enclave which has been given a like by Admin will do anything to address the situation

    As Admin oversaw the appointment of two of the most vociferous anti's in the history of the forum as moderators we can't really expect anything else.
