dhughes - As a relatively new mod perhaps I can shed a bit of insight on a few points: 1) we do not get paid to moderate nor receive kick-backs of any kind, 2) we are not given any agenda as regards Zuffa or any other organization, 3) every mod is a different person, with a different set of sensibilities - not a collective borg with a unified outlook/mission. Hope that helps.

I am just glad I decide to frequent numerous sites so I don't have to worry about corruption of a leaders decision making with his minions.

I had a little too much to drink that night...was this taken before or after the Zuffa funded lobster and steak dinner? Either way it was a fun night! And not many people can say they got to party at Dana Whites secret underground office. Phone Post 3.0

This was after the Zuffa dinner. 'Twas the after dinner social sponsored by Xyience Xenergy if memory serves me right.

You can barely make out Dana, hunched over, struggling to wheel in that giant cart of hundred dolla bills, yo.

Zapruder, say whatever you want.  Nobody is gonna lose any sleep. Just say it without the personal attacks is all. It's not what you say, it's how you say it, brah.

why is any reference to the book written by Dana's White mom scrubbed from the UG?

 

I'm not saying it's a great literary work, but it is odd that it's so taboo around here


we are not going to get any answers on our questions , no point in even trying anymore ... makes you wonder even more 


Well, that's pretty presumptuous of you since I've already answered the questions I could suss out from your OP. I can tell you right now that there is no grand conspiracy and while it may be fun to imagine all kinds of back-end deals and secret societies, I can tell you they don't exist.

99% of what mods do on this site goes completely unnoticed - however, if the site weren't moderated for even a day it would be a miserable place with little or no relevance to MMA. Spammers and trolls would fill this place with garbage and no one would bother to come here as it would be impossible to navigate - let alone pro fighters, promoters, and the other insiders who frequent this place.

From my perspective, it's really quite the opposite. I can say all this but it will fall on deaf ears and people will continue to believe what they want. The people who moderate here do it because they love the site. Anybody who tries to run a forum with any popularity will ultimately have to find moderators.

Reminds me of the It's Always Sunny episode where they try to turn the bar in to a law-free, anything-goes zone. Bit by bit they have to keep adding laws until they eventually end up where they started.

So far as the book is concerned, some one else will have to chime in as I don't know, have never deleted a thread on the topic, but am sure there's good reason. From what I've seen any decision made by the moderators are discussed rationally and consensus is reached with the best intentions.

Take it for what it is worth but this is what I have seen. On many forums, moderators will not even discuss their rationale. Here, you get a response from the forum creator on the first page. Not sure what more anyone could want.

As a former moderator of a very active board with thousands of members, I can say that it is often a thankless job.

Give the mods a break.
