    Default Moditors please.

    This forum is in need of some serious adult supervision. Threads get constantly hi-jacked, and turn into squabbles. New posters get useless replies implying either they're stupid, or they're question is stupid. The atmosphere on the forum is just plain hostle. It's neither fun, nor informative to read anymore. I'm sure proof of this will be well documented in the replies this post receives.

    Do you mean moderators?

    If so, do a search. This has been discussed many times on these forums. Simply put, the provider of the site does not make enough money on the forums to afford moderators. And they are reluctant (with somewhat good reason) to allow user moderators.

    Don't like it, too bad, it's their website.

    I would like to know why you think that and if you really feel that way then maybe you should consider not reading these forums do we argue here yes but anywhere you go you will have arguments suck it up and deal with it or leave

    Andrew...I think your being slammed. You are correct though...there are people who have asked questions and are slammed or berated to the point of frustration. This site could be a little more tolerant.

    I thought it was funny because within two posts of a person complaining about hostile forums another person told him to suck it up or leave. Classic FH.com

    Maybe what this Forum needs is a spell checker! Or a wet nurse to kiss away all the boo-boos of those that get their feeling's hurt. If you don't like the way we do things here, take your ball and go home.

    You just got to love it when new people move in and then try to change the way you do business .

    That's cool. I didn't formulate my idea well.
