Now I remember so well why I started Outbackers.com. I'm a member of several other forums and tonight I decided to see what was going on at the old stomping grounds. Man what a surprise, it was like going to a Pit Bull Fight
nothing civil at all could be said
. There was no type of Admin or Moderator intervention in the whole mess and needless to say there were a lot of bad feelings and even a business hurt over the whole mess. I am VERY HAPPY to say we have a really great group of folks here and I'm not going back to that other mess again. I will say this, If I ever see any thing like that here the IP Address of the person will be blocked at the server, in other words totally cut off. I'm proud to be among-st great folks, keep on Outbacking

Vern I'd agree, I greatly appreciate the folks here and the civility. One of the other BIG boards just gets nasty after a while. Thanks for the forum. If you never need to pass around the hat to help out please let me know.

Gotta agree whole heartedly Vern. I'm a moderator on a busy car enthusiast board and we are kung-fu fighting to keep the peace most of the time. It's a pleasure to come here and enjoy the friendly and helpfull people who are in virtually no need of moderating

Thanks Vern...

As a MODERATOR, I haven't had to step on anyone yet. I fully expect it, but it just doesn't happen. With the advent of new members each day, the day will come I'm sure. So far, everyone is being just great!

Thanks to everyone for being helpful, civil, and sharing.

I have to agree that this is a great forum. On some, it seems folks don't say anything unless it is negative. They bash businesses, other members, trailer brands etc. Keep up the good work!

Some people just don't seem to be able to moderate themselves


I really like what I have been able to see of this forum and appreciate the fact that it is moderated.
Thanks Vern!

Just got to throw my 2 cents in as well. I been haunting this site now for a month and it's been a real pleasure. Has the same warm feeling of being in a friendly campground.

To Vern and all the moderators, many thanks. You all do a great job and provide a wonderful forum for us to share our stories and ideas. Keep up the good work and if we can ever be of any help please let us know.

Yes you guys are right in with other forums. I really like this one helpfull not critical
Sometimes people think they can just say anything because there on the net and hide behind there comp. My wife and were just looking for place to talk with other rv owners and mabey learn something. We allready have gotten great Ideals for new mods. And we've only had our camper 2 weeks

Thanks I hope things stay as great as they are now.

TennTravelers I couldn't agree more the sense of community is what makes the Outbackers so much fun and keeps me coming back daily.

I too, have always enjoyed our forum. I have always felt we have had a "family atomsphere". But I guess families do have difference of opinions. From now on, I will keep my opinions to myself about campgrounds I think are wonderful. I understand there are many different campgrounds to suit all different needs. Just didn't think I would be "put down" for my opinion.

Golden - Had not seen many put downs, sorry to hear about you being flamed. I looked to see what was said but could not find it. How long ago did it happen?

I didn’t see the post either. Could you post a link to where it is please? I'd like to see what it said and who it was.
