I was reading that thread, then got to the end and thought, "Inappropriate? Wha..?"

I checked up at the top to see which forum the thread was in. It was in "Off-Topic."

Considering the nature of the thread... that just doesn't look good. I find it disturbing that my (unimportant) opinions of the situation are beginning to be developed more from the reactions to discussion rather than to actual dialog.

This is just fantastic. NOT APPROPRIATE ? ARE YOU HIGH ?

The forum ownership really needs to re-evaluate some of the moderation positions that have been handed out.

Moving this thread to OFF TOPIC is retarded. WHERE ELSE SHOULD IT BE, IF A POOL-MEMBER 'ATTN' THREAD DOES NOT BELONG IN THE POOL'S FORUM, SHERLOCK ?

This thread was moved from POOLS to OFF TOPIC.... sooo....which is the INAPPROPRIATE FORUM ?

I think its always been there, and the response has since been deleted.

is DiabloD3 trying to troll us or something? this is what usually happens:

1. randomly locks thread/deletes posts
2. members notice, and post a thread in meta
3. DiabloD3 (or some other staff) quietly reverses the action

DiabloD3 is often abusing his moderator position.
theymos, I urge you to consider taking out his privileges.

The thread is unlocked now, and the post labeling the thread "inappropriate" has been removed.

He definitely can't moderate the thread as it's in Off-Topic, I had assumed he moved it there from somewhere in the mining section.

Which sounds like he made the post, locked the thread, moved it, and I (and others) just happened to read it before the unlock.

If that's what happened, then it makes a lot more sense.

This thread was locked by reason of being inappropriate, then moved from POOLS after Diablo did his handy work to it..

If that thread doesn't belong in the Pools forum, then there are many others that shouldn't be either.

He did, it was definitely Pools (maybe mining)this morning.

It was Pools. I posted in it this morning, then went back and it had disappeared.

Is there some sort of "Diablo's revoked actions"-counter available somewhere?

I'm so confused... Now it's back in off-topic.

I'd move it somewhere, but I fear that somebody would hit me over the head with a stick, regardless of where I move it.

Sounds like an edit war between two mods is brewing....
