‘Tis the season to be bashing…the Montclair Watercooler, that is. Over at Montclair Unmoderated, the inconsistency of posts that are allowed or rejected on the Cooler is being analyzed ad nauseum. Posts are being picked apart, as members of the Unmod squad try to decipher the inconsistent, often cryptic screening process of the not-so-secret society known as the Benevolent Despots. Posts in question include a thinly-veiled commercial for a penthouse apartment masquerading as a goodbye letter to Montclair and numerous queries about lending support for the Tsunami disaster, which thankfully did not occur in Montclair, but is still on a lot of Cooleristas’ minds (when they’re not stressing about squeaky stairs). Relegating Tsunami posts to a files folder (which appears to be empty) seems to be the response of the BDs. One Unmoderated member shares the frustration of getting a post on the Cooler:
"I too have tried to post perfectly reasonable responses to posts on the Watercooler — only to get a curt authoritarian, almost cult like response from a particular moderator."
Here√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s our question: Can Cooleristas whine about being ridiculed by posters on the Unmoderated, or would those posts be deemed √¢‚Ç¨≈ìoff topic?√¢‚Ç¨¬ù
