Russ started his own spat with Taco and then used his status as a moderator as a weapon to spite the dude.
First of all, I have never been in a "spat" in my life.
Secondly, the "beef" didn't need to be aired, and it wasn't legitimate. If you have a complaint about a poster's actions, why post it publically? Do you expect a non-moderator to do something about it? Why not tell someone who can do something about it - like hmmmm, let's see, oh yes how about a moderator?
Third, if your complaint about your mother being called a "mexican whore" is that your mother is not mexican but rather a fat white woman, it is hard to take the complaint seriously. TJ did it for the air-time, not for the complaint.
Fourth, I wasn't in an argument with TJ. I stated his thread was created merely to garner attention and that I was pretty sure he wouldn't tolerate it on his board. He AGREED that he wouldn't tolerate his own actions. When two people agree, that is not a "spat"
Finally, if you are the only person out of 3,007 members who believe that I handled it incorrectly, I am pretty sure I did the right thing.
