1.At which point in typing my post does the Mod know what I’m typing?
2.Does the Mod see when posters edit their posts before pressing “send post”?
3.What is an IP address?How does everyone else know all the usernames of one poster?Am I dense?(do NOT answer that one)
4.Does the Mod know poster genders?
5.Have the Mods considered my idea for an advice book based on the CR?December 15, 2010 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #720530
1) when u press send, they get it (the message, they never get IT)
2) what is the difference between question 1 and 2??
3) your computers home mailing address, u might live at 123 main st, but your computer lives at 553.454.564654.564564 and ever post comes from that address. (so do emails) (last part of question 3 NO, if you don’t know what i’m talking about your dense lol)
4) only from reading posts, if you talk girlie talk they know your gender. also see chesednames take on knowing a persons gender.
5) NODecember 15, 2010 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #720531
Thanks.re:#5:are you a mod?December 15, 2010 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #720532
no he is not a mod
but he has a close connection to the mods in that a great deal of his posts under this and his other screename contain at least one reference to how he doesnt like the moderation here. he doesnt usually miss a chance to say something negative.December 15, 2010 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #720534
Oh.So don’t you think you guys could put out a best-seller?Everyone would buy it to see if they’re in it!December 15, 2010 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #720535
excuse me you wrote “great deal”, i thought you said always
what other screen name? can’t 2 ppl share an email account?December 15, 2010 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #720536
i dont understand what you are saying. are you denying that you are one person who posts under 2 different screennames?December 15, 2010 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #720537
correctDecember 15, 2010 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #720538
it is not just ip addresses,
i know for a fact that you are chesedname
but if you wish to deny it, thats fineDecember 15, 2010 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #720539
how do you know for a fact?December 15, 2010 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #720540
how do we know you’re not moderator 1, 2, 3, etc. and you’re using 80 different screen names???December 15, 2010 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #720541blueprintsParticipant
oooooohhh busted.December 15, 2010 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #720543Y.W. EditorKeymaster
Because Mod 80, is Mod 80 and Mod 80 only.
Most Mods don’t post comments, although they can do so if they wish.
It’s extremely childish to have multiple usernames, and only insecure people with issues do that. There are people (mainly one person) here who starts an argument, and then they need “weight” and lots of comments defending their (many times insane) positions.
Why people do that, we have yet to figure out.December 15, 2010 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #720544

Are you implying that i’m the one doing that?December 15, 2010 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #720545joe1Member
I suppose if two different people send from the same ip address the mod thinks they are the sameDecember 15, 2010 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #720546
maybe they both go to the local public library?December 15, 2010 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #720547
I would like an answer, am i the one with many screen names, talking to myself? or did you mean someone else?December 16, 2010 12:22 am at 12:22 am #720548Ma ChovasoMember
“There are people (mainly one person) here who starts an argument, and then they need “weight” and lots of comments defending their (many times insane) positions. “
Omy Mod-80, are you also maah?
BUSTED!December 16, 2010 1:27 am at 1:27 am #720549kapustaParticipant
What exactly do the mods know?
Mods know where you live, and what you’re wearing. They were trained working for the FBI.
Seriously though, after a while of two screen names with the same IP coming on at exactly the same time, making the same sort of comments, it probably becomes obvious.December 16, 2010 2:05 am at 2:05 am #720550jhcvivgwryParticipant
oooooohhh busted. 🙂
YW Editor – If some people have a “good time” using different screen names then maybe the rest of the CR should have a good time finding out how many screen names X has.
Wha-da-ya say about that?December 16, 2010 3:05 am at 3:05 am #720551ItcheSrulikMember
If two people, say a guy and his basement tenant, are using the same router, they will have the same IP address to anyone who logs them. They could each be completely unaware of each others presence. The only way to tell for sure is if the person was stupid enough to register all his sock puppets under the same email address.December 16, 2010 5:32 am at 5:32 am #720552

“Most Mods don’t post comments, although they can do so if they wish.”
I find this comment disingenuous. Mod-80 is a highly prolific commenter. The practice of both commenting and moderating on a specific thread is a clear conflict of interest and should be disallowed. One cannot be a player and referee in the same game.December 16, 2010 7:49 am at 7:49 am #720554RuffRuffMember
The IP address is the address of your computer given to you as you connect. Your service provider gives you an IP address. Unless you bought a permanent IP address, it will always be another one.
I have another question. Does any mod or anyone at all read the stuff that comes in from the ‘contact us’ page?December 16, 2010 10:04 am at 10:04 am #720555YW Moderator-77Member

You can if you own the ball. Or the field.December 16, 2010 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #720558real-briskerMember
ruffruff – “Does anyone read the stuff from the contact page” I had the same question, I have sent numerous emails and was never answered.
Actually, in all fairness, your not being very honest.
We never received one email from you, now of course maybe you are using another one of your 67 different names….
YWN receives thousands of emails each day, and reads every one of them. We respond to what we feel is necessary.
You can always contact our offices at 718-305-6020.
Our office staff will always try and assist you.December 16, 2010 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #720559RuffRuffMember
Being blocked for no reason is not necessary? I really don’t know what warrants such behavior. The message says to contact the site administrator, but there isn’t even an automated acknowledgement, whatever that would be worth.
If you really want “all fairness”, address me, not him (unless you’ll start claiming that I’m him). Do you really rather phone calls over emails?December 16, 2010 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #720562ItcheSrulikMember
Most ISPs give static IP addresses, especially for broadband connections which are always on.December 16, 2010 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #720563chaimssParticipant
So getting back to the OP’s original question…
1. Until you hit submit everything’s still on your computer. Once you hit “send post” it gets sent for moderation.
3.An IP address is how your internet service provider knows which computer asked for which information, and they can send the response back to the right computer.
4.It’s usually not that hard to figure out after a while 😉
5.THAT you’d have to ask them…December 17, 2010 1:14 am at 1:14 am #720564Ma ChovasoMember
“To what we feel is necessary”……
Now that is not exactly “all fairness”
Its yeshivish logic i guess.December 17, 2010 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #720565smartcookieMember
Ruff Ruff, although your computer is not always assigned the same IP address, it usually is the same.December 19, 2010 2:28 am at 2:28 am #720566mw13Participant
“How does everyone else know all the usernames of one poster?”
Sometimes the Mods let us know, but most of the time its just a wild guess…
“There are people (mainly one person) here who starts an argument, and then they need “weight” and lots of comments defending their (many times insane) positions…”
“now of course maybe you are using another one of your 67 different names…”
Mods, would you mind posting a list of all usernames being used by this one poster?December 19, 2010 3:14 am at 3:14 am #720567
Thank you,all.December 23, 2010 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #720568
how many mods are there?December 23, 2010 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #720569
usually somewhere in the single digitsDecember 23, 2010 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #720570
so why are you 80 and not 9 or 13December 23, 2010 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #720571
good question!December 23, 2010 10:03 pm at 10:03 pm #720572
thanksDecember 23, 2010 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #720573
do mods know what the corresponding email address is for a user name? If they don’t, could they find out?December 23, 2010 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #720574
are any mods married?
and how much do you get paid?December 23, 2010 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #720575
some men some women some married some not.
our pay is the satisfaction of a job well done.
and i think we get a free t-shirt or mug or something at the end of the year.December 23, 2010 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #720576
where are the rest of the mods – how come they don’t post so muchDecember 23, 2010 11:38 pm at 11:38 pm #720577
they’re busy moderating, not posting, that is their job after all.
and they’re shyDecember 23, 2010 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #720578LemonySnicketParticipant
How does one become a Mod? Where do the Mods train? Iv’e heard of Med school but never Mod school. Are you all centrally located in a giant corporate building or are you each Moding from home? Do you Mods know the Mods from VIN? Are you Mods rivales with VIN Mods? So many questions, so little time…December 24, 2010 12:19 am at 12:19 am #720579
med school? morons!
mod school rejects go to med school
we mod from moderator central a huge skyscraper located in CLASSIFIED
VIN? never heard of itJune 23, 2019 8:17 am at 8:17 am #1745573Captain™Participant
