ed and doug duke it out

the system you describe is called anarchy. has never worked anywhere in the history of the world. (see occupy wall street) Doubt it will be a system that andrew will be willing to put in place. There will ALWAYS be someone with power over you doug. in every aspect of your life as long as you live. whether you believe it or not.

even if there were no mods (not really possible anyway), andrew would still have power over everybody here.

It's the system many have described - but you come after me.

You now show what you do best with some off the wall bs personal assertion.

No one has power over me or anyone else unless they allow it - but that's really more your problem to solve than mine.

Everything I know is wrong

Spoken like a mod Ed that doesn't want his power taken away - it's a forum Ed where plenty of people here know me and you only believe you do - big difference might want to ask a few that know me.
Doug, Ed's right. Nobody has power over you but Andrew just has the power to shut us all up by hitting his Ferrari Life button that says, "OFF". Will your life change? No. Not a lot. I know my life wouldn't change. You just click somewhere else on the computer thingy. The point is that we are all here because we are friends and share a common interest. Not just Ferraris but other things as well and sometimes we disagree. Sometimes we have fun arguing, sometimes we don't. Everybody just be cool and don't take anything as being personal.

factually incorrect my friend. many people have power over you (and me), whether you like to admit it or not. Whether you "allow" it or not.

Power is defined by political scientists which I believe applies here as an ability to influence the behavior of others with or without resistance.

Andrew in no way influences me nor does anyone else unless I allow it.

Fact is I could pick up and leave here and post at another forum just as many others here do - which I do not but it's certainly shows that power is of no consequence.

I don't think Ed is holding this forum back. I think he adds to it. I enjoy his posts. Sometimes you might think he is an asshole. Sometimes I think he is an asshole. I'm sure his wife and kids sometimes think he is an asshole. Mostly I think he's a good guy that shares most of my views and likes the same things. But will disagree with me when he thinks I'm being an asshole. Cool. We understand each other.

As for holding this forum back, what is meant by holding it back? Where is it supposed to go? It is growing and people like it.

must have missed this post. if the question was directed at me, no. it never crossed my mind that i am holding this forum back by being a mod. In fact, i think it helps this forum out that you and others are not bombarded by spam. Since that is pretty much the extent to which i use my power over you , it never crossed my mind.

Would you like more spam? is that what this forum needs to move forward?

IMO - you are spam.

But everything I know is wrong.

Correct. I agree with you. The reason we haven't left here is because we still like it here.

I enjoy these discussions. Don't forget that I work in a communist country so when you want to talk about politics, power and influence I'm pretty much immersed in it. I'll discuss it but I really don't take it quite as seriously on an internet forum.

Ed this forum means something to me as it does you.

At the end of the day all your friends followed you from over there to over here and my friends did the same.

If you feel threatened by me I will leave - just say the word one more change isn't going to effect me like it would you.

I didn't say Ed caused the growth of the forum. I think it would have grown with or without him. I said he adds to the forum. As I believe I do and you do. You want the grass to grow greener? Add a little fertilizer. The 3 of us have plenty of that.

Whatever you need to feel better about yourself is OK by me.

It's an internet forum - wanna taste of reality?
