You're right. I consider myself in my second childhood.  ;D
Me too.

I have learned to get along with people and it works best if you are not confrontational but Logos is the master of Confrontation

Its not easy for French people to understand  English even though many English words have French roots.

Maybe it goes back to the French Revoution where all intelligent people where killed ???

Have you ever tried to deal with a French-Canadian ???

I have adopted this as my motto:

Growing old is inevitable but growing up is optional.

It serves me well and I enjoy the simple things in life a lot more than many people my age who have allowed the stereotypes of society to apply to them because they think it's the way they should be.

This certainly isn't Logos who is trying to start up another confrontation.  :(

Logos isn't the one going around randomly insulting people and trying to start confrontations, you are Kenny. You are a very narrow minded man and a master troll.

archiving Yokenny's xenophobic hits ;D so far he's been ranting against the French, the Russians, the Slovens and anything that's not Canadian with obscure British roots and illiterate. But hey, unless you bash a potential customer (who deserves it), you're not banned here ;D

Well raking over hot coals is hardly likely to make matters any better. If you don't like it use the report to moderator link in the offensive post.

So lets get back on topic thanks.

Then that is a problem with the system and they the moderators are the ones to hand out any bananas or warnings should they feel it necessary and as a third party you don't know if action has been taken (I doubt you would be informed of that).

All that the tit for tat fighting achieves is to derail and take a topic off topic.

Then we do see some intervention in the topic, but by then the topic has little value to its original subject. We have no input or control over the moderators action/s; all we have is the report to moderator link, if it is used enough I guess they would have to take notice, but the tit for tat posting fanning the flames achieves even less, to the detriment to the topic.

My last comment on this as we are taking it even further off-topic.

...the lack of action in terms of moderation here is deplorable, an absolute disaster. It's been mentioned several times and that doesn't change anything, they don't delete duplicates, they don't move posts when necessary, they don't lock or delete duplicated threads, and they allow a psycho like the poster mentioned here to be off topic and insult randomly tens of members. I'm asking here and publicly for a permanent ban of Yokenny. The guys never helps anyone (how could he...), he's spreading off topics posts all over the forums, again he's insulting people randomly and mostly in regard to their citizenship, uploading ridiculous and retarded pictures, and that should go on? how long? I mean the guy is the shame of that forum, get him out of here >:(

+1

But let's go back to the topic.
We can discuss this in another thread, or even opening a poll about Moderation :)

Nearly all of the action in this forum is contributed by members.
From what I've seen, through constant searching the web (which is what I do), there is lot more direct response and problem-solving here than you will find in other forums that support antivirus brands. This would be one reason why avast puts up with the sometimes wild west nature of the forum (they have said as much).

Things do actually get done here. Though at times it is something of a balancing act. YoKenny is a master at playing the balance either way, but mostly he provides accurate and up-to-date information, which is good because he brings a wealth of knowledge ((depth and breadth) to the forum. If you've been here a while, you've likely locked horns sometime or other with YoKenny, so you know how to defuse any potential conflict situation. That is always the best option. I doubt very much if the moderators have time to pay attention whenever we start to bicker amongst ourselves.
