In short, this is a formal request to strip Jroa of his status as moderator, and possibly ban him for some period of time.

This thread is not intended for complete nonsense. People like you, Papa, are the reason threads like this get booted into complete nonsense.

Maybe if a moderator, or an admin could lock this, then it'd be perfectly fine for "Suggestions & Concerns".

It doesn't matter what you 'intended' this thread for.

Its ultimate fate is up to the moderators.

And we have a perfectly good one in Jroa.

So, shall we just stop spamming him & let him do his job, eh?

Thank you please!

Jroa, I don't know why you are putting up with his bs. I would have banned him just for causing trouble. Jroa is man around here, his word is law.

BS? This thread is intended to be a serious request to remove his moderator status. Or was that not clear? Also:

I am going to let an admin make the call on this one.  They are considering TheEarthIsRound's ban as we speak.  Like I said, I hope they go easy on this guy.  I would hate for them to give him a lengthy ban.

See the thread "How far is Sun in FE model?... " (link in my signature) for perfect example of jroa breaking several rules of the forum.
Make sure admins check this thread before making their final judge on jroa.

Is moderator supposed to:
1. Lie?
2. Change the topic?
3. Post low content things?

Also, considering TheEarthIsRound's ban in hilarious here. If you were so strict to your rules, then answer the following questions.

Why is Papa Legba not banned yet for his 6 months of trolling?

Can TheEngineer be punished for calling people idiots?

(See http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=65000.0;topicseen#.VmkXw4-G_F0)

What about JRoweSceptics, who spam insults and low content posts?

(see any thread of him)

Forum rules do not apply to them?

If so, it seems to be back-firing badly, as you are the one currently under consideration of a ban...

Make sure admins check this thread before making their final judge on jroa.

I believe it's TheEarthIsRound the admins are currently 'judging', not jroa?

Either you cannot read, or you are trolling the mods & admins; neither option looks good for you.

Whatever; your slapstick antics make both of you far too amusing for me to wish you banned.

Like I said, this has reached the point of absurdity. Is JROA a pain in the butt? Yes. But no more or less than anyone else. If you want more serious discourse out of the Forum, perhaps you should look to yourself 1st. I'm not speaking to THEEARTHISROUND here. "You" and "yourself" are being used generically, & apply to me too. To raise the level of public discourse is the responsibility of, well, the public, NOT just JROA & other Moderators. They are human too. It has to be exhausting to always be expected to NOT lose it when someone is in your face practically daring you to. & that speaks to yet another argument that JROA & I were having in the other Forum that I think I just won, but that is aside, & he can ask me about that privately if he likes. But here & now, as much a pain in the ass as he is, & though I don't wish to make an enemy of THEEARTHISROUND, I shall defend JROA, although I disagree w/ the guy on just about EVERYTHING.

I do not deny Jroa's wrongs, but he's the best we have atm. At least The Truth Seeker was banned eventually...

Sometimes I wonder: "Why am  I on this site?"

There is little that is more depressing evidence that this forum is a waste of time run by a corrupt clique, than the fact that the slimy turd is still strutting about with moderator status.

I would also add the "Jessica Watson" thread (http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=65153.0)

The thread is about traveling distances on the equator and Antarctica and how FE explains them. Of course JRoweSkeptic puts in his DEF to counter this as regular FE models would find it difficult. The discussion goes into DEF instead but jroa starts questioning RET - that has nothing to do with the topic.

When asked to stop (to moderate) he refuses to and says I am derailing the thread trying to get it back on topic.

Furthermore, jroa is setting up arguments, then when people don't bite, he calls them liars.

"You can run around the forum all you want accusing people of being liars with out any evidence.  However, you will probably eventually get banned.  Just giving you a heads up."

For me, he threatens banning for no reason, even though people like JRoweSkeptic are calling people liars left and right when they disagree with them. He never gives them such warnings.

There are many, many donkeys in a drove living their lives confined within a fence line on the ranch. They share in the bounty of food and drink served to them for a lifetime.  Drinking from the trough and enjoying the groundnut hay, sorghum stover, and salt lick without ever realizing the variety of food and drink existing outside of the ranch.

There is a team of thoroughbreds who came across the drove, amused by the limited vision the donkeys possessed even though the pack seemed convinced this ranch life extended to the rest of land they inhabited.
fairytale

The thoroughbreds had traveled the width and breadth of the land experiencing first-hand reality around them, enjoying fresh water from the stream and consuming the rich sources of available food offered in nature. 

Try as they may, the thoroughbreds could not convince the drove that there is something beyond what they experience on the ranch.  The drove had a reputation for obstinacy and an inability to comprehend that a treasure exists in reality...and that reality is what we call the truth. 

Their reputation, as demonstrated, exists to this day since the knowledge brought forth by the thoroughbreds continues to be disregarded.

Reported for derailment and off-topic posting.

A parable or fable is not a derailment.  If it was, the whole Bible would be one derailment after another.  I am giving you an official warning for Troublemaking and abuse of the report function.  Please be considerate and contribute to forum threads constructively.  Thanks.
It is when it added nothing to this intellectual debate. How do you call yourself a Mod?

Which part of this debate is intellectual?  We have roundies claiming all kinds of preposterous things without a shred of evidence to back any of it up, and you coming in to memberate.  Same old same old...
I've been on the forum about a week and you seem to be insinuating that I've been here forever. Also if I'm finding what "memberate" means correctly you are suggesting I pretend to be a mod which I have made no claims to be.

And just because 0.00000001% of the population wont accept the obvious evidence that has in fact been given and will just say it is a lie/photoshop/conspiracy does not mean there is no evidence.

Now to add to the discussion,
The part about seeing enough to be able to see the curve dove tails nicely into the Red Bull footage where they show a picture of a porthole that a tiny section of Earth visible and because it looks flat in the image that means there is no curve. Seems like you (the OP) have a mathematical argument as to why you would not see it in such a small sample.

You have been here a weak and you are already telling members who have been here for years what to do.  fuck off penguin.  I'll take my ban to tell you to go fuck your self.  Ban please.   I am waiting.
Should I add more?

Yes, this is FE face on the "serious scientific forum", where jroa is not "playing games" and provide "serious discussion" (all quotes come from jroa himself).

Or maybe you should all just get a life. Jroa and I disagree greatly, it seems, yet I'm perfectly happy with the treatment I typically receive. I've received warnings, and bans, and disagreement, but they're actually justified in many cases.

One thing I've noticed that's nearly always true for REers: you're entitled assholes. You demand we waste hours, and often thousands of dollars, to please your every whim: you insist we should do everything, and if you're too lazy to learn FET, we should take the time to answer an endless list of questions already covered hundreds of times before. You follow us around on the forum and bug us demanding we answer one tedious little question, despite the fact you only need to ask it once. Then, when we get sick of your shit and block you, you still whine around the forum and address us and act like it's some kind of victory that we don't respond to a post we can't see, and debate someone who's demonstrated it's a waste of time.

Welcome to the real world. People are in no way required to obey your every desire. Get used to it. If you don't like it, leave. We'll all be glad to see you go.

(a) The admins don't ever come here.
(b) The admins are just as biased as Jroa (after all, they made the little git into a moderator) and will do nothing. The only value of these threads is to ensure Jroa's childish behaviour is open to all our scrutiny, so nobody mistakes him for a real moderator.

No, there's a thing called "moderation". It's what helps keep online communities from turning into festering likes of shit, and when the moderators don't do their job, then, places like this turn into a, well, festering pile of shit.

Maybe you should really learn how online communities function retard.

I am probably a relatively newcomer to this website, but it seems that it is sinking lower by the day. I don't know how it started, but it seems any round earther is considered a liar and a "shill" if they post any true facts.It is a proven fact that the earth is a globe, but I think if flat earthers would just post "this is our idea of how the earth would be IF the earth WAS flat" it might get this website a little more respect. If it could be "let us disagree agreeably" without all the name calling, profanity and vulgarity - by both sides - this would be a better website. Or maybe it wasn't intended to be so. As it is, it does provide a lot of laughs, however crude they may be.

However maybe all this goes along with what you will see on the rest of the Internet.:
