Unfortunately as of late it appears that we have the need for a little bit more help from the Mods. I've been on the forums here for years and it does seem to be taking on a bad flavor. The whole UL at REI thread is a prime example. I realize that Roger C. and the others do not get paid for their service. Granted, I believe in getting what you pay for, but you shouldn't say you'll do something and then be very hit or miss about it. BPL has been an invaluable resource for me and others through the years. I for one would like to see it continue to be such. Yes HF has very active moderators. I think we should be aiming for a middle ground of what we have going here and what is going on over there. I would also like to volunteer my services here. I visit the forums here daily(when I'm in town) and see the best and worst the BPL has to offer. Let's keep BPL great and not become the scourge of the internet forums.. Everybody please be nice. Remember the Golden Rule. Think before you post. Have fun. Thanks for your time. Ken
