Lynn seems pretty harsh...

I realy hope I do not get banned for asking this…

Why are so many threads “locked” by Lynn Bodoni? And why does it seem like most people Banned are Banned by Ms. Bodoni? :confused:

Lynn’s an administrator, and ranks higher than normal mods. It shouldn’t be suprising then, that she is frequently the “mouthpiece” for the moderation of this board (which is more collaborative than you might realize).

What is harsh? What sort of behavior that previous posters have exhibited has been unjustly punished?


IIRC, you turned over a new leaf. I could be very wrong though.

She is Cecil’s Personal Angel of Death. Bow down and fear her, and bring her chocolate!

I really hope you are not wrong…

Eh. You asked a question and it was answered, askeptic. I don’t see anything in this thread that has you coming unglued and threatening to kill a hamster from a clock tower. I wouldn’t worry about it (unless you decide to come unglued after reading my post, or something . . . ). :wink:

Lynn’s cool in my book. Always has been. :slight_smile:

Keep in mind, not only is Lynn an admin, and Cecil’s Angel of Death; her forum is the Pit, where Dopers run wild, epithets fly in flocks, and the flames roar. By its very nature, this is the forum most likely to attract Those Who Cry Out For Banning.

Yeah, don’t forget that our sweet and dainty li’l Lynn has charge of the Pit, the most wretched hive of scum and villany in the galaxy. We don’t get many people crossing behavioural lines when making Comments on Staff Reports, for instance.

If it wasn’t for our sweet and lovely Tubadiva keeping our lovely and sweet Lynn in check…just how much havoc would she wreak?

There have been several threads comparing hierarchical ranks across branches or the armed forces, countries, religions, etc. but I am always confused as it gets so complicated. An admiral is equivalent to a general, unless you are in Lybia where a colonel is equivalent to general in western countries.

Similarly the Catholic church has prophets, messengers, ordinary angels, angels first class, guardian angels, archangels, virtues, powers, principalities, dominations, thrones, cherubim, seraphim, etc but these ranks are not directly interchangeable with other churches and need to be validated on a case by case basis.

So how do the military ranks convert to religious ranks? I have no idea. Is a rear admiral more or less than an archangel? Does a commodore outrank a cherub?Who knows.

And now we have the vBulletin ranks to complicate things further. Guests, members, junior mods, real mods, administrators, angels of death, advisory board members… . .

How many stripes or stars does an administrator wear? Is an administrator more or less than a two star general? More or less than an archangel? Do you have to salute when an administrator goes by? Or should you say a prayer instead? It is very confusing to me and I wish someone would make a chart showing the relative ranks.

Is this a dare? :smiley:

To Lynn (who knows when I may need it)

How do I respect thee? Let me count the ways.
I respect thee to the depth and breadth and height
My posts can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and yadda yadda yadda.
I respect thee to the level of every forum’s
Most quiet need, by something or something else.

CK: Maybe she needs a a break from us,( in your words) “the most wretched hive of scum and villany in the galaxy” :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :confused:

don’t ask: quit ass kissing… :smiley:

Go ahead, make his day.

Given all that Lynn has endured and is still enduring, calling her harsh is callous and stupid beyond belief. And I do mean beyond belief.

I’m not ass kissing (or even arse kissing) I mean it from the bottom of my Islets of Langerhans.

Lib, I luv ya, but do you have to be an idiot all the time?Give it a rest. I have missed you for a couple of weeks (and wanted to say “Hello”). It hurts that your first reply is so stupid. I know her tooth hurts, I am not complaining about something she has said to me (god knows I have reason to) I was just wondering why she is so quick to bann people and lock threads. I am not suggesting she is wrong, just wondering why…(I tried to ask Ms. Bodoni this question via e-mail several days ago but she chose to ignore it)(which is her right)

Peace, Lib…

I really do like you (not that you care) but damn, a simple “hello” would have sufficed.

I’m not talking about her tooth, sir or madam. I’m talking about her diabetes, her recent extended hospital stay, the times we didn’t even know whether she would make it. Things she never whines or complains about. She does this thankless job while literally struggling for her life. If being criticized for slamming her pisses you off, that’s just too bad.

Lynn is but a servant of that bitch-goat Shubb-Niggurath. The Great and Terrible and Dreaded Cthulhu will have his revenge though - just wait till The Stars Are Right.

Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah-nagl fhtaga!!! The Day Of Reckoning is at hand!!!

I’m guessing that Lynn is Metatron. Archangel, Angel of Death, Mouth of God. :wink:
