    Title is meant to read
    You better not have a different opinion about a topic to a mod because this is what you will get.

    Apparently BHW is now a place where mods can tell the users to commit suicide because the user has a different opinion.

    I'm not sure if a person that posts remarks like that has the mental capacity to moderate a forum.

    Correct Jeff and now that is why your thread will get deleted.

    I am also a moron because I disagree with the basics of life. Because obviously if you have a JVIP here or are a MOD or a little exc VIP you are a book of knowledge. Never mind the basics of life, if you disagree you are a moron. It is funny how some people react to a conversation here. ie go die you dick head, because you disagree with moronic statements.

    In before ban.

    I doubt any Mod would advise the founder of Amazon to commit suicide.
    Matt Cutts has been given that suggestion numerous times and he still hasn't taken it.

    I know it will, but hopefully someone else will see that this is not okay.

    I know I will probably get a ban for this. But, I am just stating the facts. The post is there for everyone to see and I am just posting it here with my opinion attached.

    Possibly the mod you are speaking of was joking or simply had a
    bad day. Either way, I am confident in saying that my fellow staff
    members conduct themselves at the highest level, and from my
    experience, I think we do a damn good job, considering the fact
    that we have a forum comprised of over 500,000 members.

    If you think being a mod on BHW is a "glory gig", think again.
    It is hard work and we take it very seriously.

    I agree. But I also think that when you are in a professional position, you should not speak to people like this, joking or not.

    OK, I thought you received that message in a PM but having searched it seems it is a thread I missed:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/653164-finally-cure-aids-hiv-2.html

    Will read through it now.

    Skimming through it though, I would have agreed with you Guys.

    Looks like there were valid points on both sides of the debate but some people got over emotional.

    I wouldn't take it too seriously.

    Duly noted . . . and in the future, if you feel that one of the staff members
    is operating in an unbecoming way, you are always welcome to contact
    one of our Administrators, rather than making a public spectacle out of it.

    Thank You - "Wiz"

    Yeah, I'm not taking it seriously but I just don't think comments like that have a place here. Insulting someone's abstract opinions is on this, but telling them to commit suicide is another.

    Looking at the thread in question, I do not see it as a joke, or a bad day. I see it as "my opinion is right, and if you disagree you are a moron and should die"

    I get this opinion due to the fact that I was warned and my comment was deleted due to a slightly offensive response. Yet users who stated "they hope I die of AIDS" "I am a waste of oxygen", their comments were left there as though they are acceptable.

    To me a forum is a place where people air their opinions, and their opinions no matter how they differ with others, do not deserve to come under attack by such mindless responses like "Commit suicide" "I hope you die of AIDS".

    You guys definitely took some abuse in that thread.

    It is a shame as it could have been an interesting debate.

    The thread should have stayed open and the discussion should have continued.

    I would have loved that. I for one care very very little about others opinions. I just find it very sad when people have to resort to abuse when others have a different opinion. The MOD in question I have a lot of respect for, and I find him helpful and a great member of the community. If his opinion differs from mine, big deal. I have bigger issues to deal with in life other than someone who disagrees with me on a forum, like is my cat going to come back home before I get my flight to Spain.

    It could have been, but instead of coming up with valid arguments, we were abused. This is not a debate and the thread just highlighted the superiority complex of some members. I think calling other people stupid because of your own lack of understanding, is well...

    As for caring about other people's opinions, I do care. If someone can give me some valid arguments I'm likely to change my opinion.

    As I previously stated, if you have an issue with a staff member,
    you are welcome to contact one of our administrators and voice
    your concerns. There is no need to discuss this matter any further.
