    h5djr - no longer a Moderator

    Hi everyone

    Just thought I'd let you know that I'm no longer a Moderator on ASN.

    I have fell out with the 'management' over several items recently, some of which you all know about, so I decided it was better if I go back to being just an ordinary member.

    I will still be around just as much and will join in the discussions and help wherever I can - mostly in the A3 8P forum as I drive a 8P.

    I don't think there is anyway you could be described as 'ordinary'.

    Perhaps we all need to describe ourselves as NMMs (Non-Moderator Members).

    LOL! I can't help but laugh at this reply.

    Dave, you will be fine mate, I doubt you have been unhelpful to other forum members in your time here, and maybe you'll be a bit more relaxed and chilled out without the moderating side of things. You're still a valued member of the community.

    Quite the opposite. It's great and I'm sure it always will be. A great bunch of lads and lasses who enjoy (well most of the time) their Audi.

    Especially if it's one with such fixed ideas!!!
    This post was purely in response to JoJo's post saying NEVER mess with the Management.

    I just wondered how long it would take for one of the Moderators to come back with a comment, although I didn't expect it to be Staz.

    Ahh Dave - another one bites the dust.

    As your probably aware I too upset the "Management" by trying to be a diplomat.

    Doing what I was asked of when there was only one or two of "us" (Mods) around, or when others had other priorities, only to be then mistaken /accused / tried and convicted in my absence of being a Defector / Traitor.

    A stark reminder to the mod team not to forget that your all expendible and remember dont go into the "wrong" area of town or have too much of an opinion either way or your commerades may turn on you.

    Choosing not to continue being a moderator rather than getting kicked of the top table.

    Basically choosing not to accept what I saw as the "there are two ways of doing things - my way and the wrong way" type of management.

    Dave I'm getting a little fed up with this. Perhaps Rob should post the transcripts of the admin conversations so everyone can see the way you wanted to do things?
