But comparing an INTERNET moderator to a firefighter..that's stretching it a bit..
The profession is an example, regardless of whether your a voulenteer or not, your expect to uphold the same ideals, goals, profesioanlism and honour of someone who does it professionally. Being a voulenteer dosen't excuse you.

On top of that, pranks like this have ill effects on the sport, especially when they last longer than this one did. Has anyone wonderd about potential new players being turned away because they think the sport is constantly in impending doom, or read something about a retailer being arrested by the RCMP, then forgoet about Airsoft completly? This stuff hurts the sport, and helps only those who laugh at their "little joke".

This is why many people have their "panties in a knot" about the pranks like this that happen far too often.

I think this one went over with less crazyness then last fall. No one buried their collection in their back yard and we didn't end up with more guns. Ohya, no one called gump and got him out of bed.

Well, that's the end of the film.

Now, here's the meaning of life. Thank you, Brigitte. M-hmm. Well, it's nothing very special. Uh, try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations, and, finally, here are some completely gratuitous pictures of *****es to annoy the censors and to hopefully spark some sort of controversy, which, it seems, is the only way, these days, to get the jaded, video-sated public off their flippin arses and back in the sodding cinema. Family entertainment bollocks!! What they want is filth: people doing things to each other with chainsaws during tupperware parties, babysitters being stabbed with knitting needles by gay presidential candidates, vigilante groups strangling chickens, armed bands of theatre critics exterminating mutant goats... Where's the fun in pictures? Oh, well, there we are. Here's the theme music. Goodnight.

If they can't maintain a standard of professionalism that is held by people who are paid to moderate any board, then they shouldn't be in the position, in my opinion.

Not to mention, its hard to play the "were voulenteers so shaddup" card, when the administration will reject, or refulse moderatorship to qualified members that ask, or applied for the position. Espeically when no clear or direct reason is given for the denial.
Well, they don't provide an essential service like firefighting. If in you're in a rural area and depend on volunteer firefighting services, you don't have a choice in the services that are provided. However, you do pay tax dollars which goes to the payment of their equipment and the administration of their services so you do get to expect a certain set of minimum standards.

Conversely, this forum was started by a small number of individuals who pay for hosting with private capital and maintain it with volunteered time. They started this club they called Airsoft Canada and because they paid for the registration of the DNS first, they actually get to set policy, break policy and decide who gets to go into the treehouse and throw waterballoons at Susie Derkins.

If they piss off their membership too much, they lose their membership to other administrations. It's really up to the mods and admins to decide how to run their public forum. Scare away potential new players? Everytime someone claims this as a good reason to take airsoft super public, they get viciously stomped down. I think it's hard to argue that goofing around on ASC jeopardizes the security of airsoft. There are many alternate forums for airsoft in Canada.
