    So true....reminds me of the good ole days of the "Bait O Lympics" where it became a sport to annoy certain whiney, thin-skinned members, mostly internet heros, mainly by calling them out on their, ahem, exaggerations/resume padding. You got a bronze medal if your slap resulted in one of them tattling on you or complaining about you to a moderator. Silver medals were for being threatened with lawsuits (rallying cry of white trash everywhere "I'll SUE YOU!") and the Olympic Gold Medal winning Master Baiters were the ones that received death threats.

    "Junior Modding", "Backseat Modding", or "Forum copping" can refer negatively to the behavior of ordinary users who take a moderator-like tone in criticizing other members."

    Fallon made this quote in an earlier post. I don't know where it came from. It wasn't attributed. Maybe another thread?
    It rings true however.
    BTW Smillerdvm, as to your OP. Potus and RTF have always been cliquish. The best part of banning has always been to watch them eat their own.

    Where is Bait, anyway? I don't know him from Adam, but I think he was nice and talked about dogs.
