I propose we all go and play on our pandoras (apologies to those that are still waiting!)
I'm still waiting for mine.
Anywho, on the topic:
I have read some others' discussions and arguments regarding the ethics behind his decision to edit his past posts, and have decided to retract my opinion
that it would be a good idea for him to do so. I still believe it to be an admirable effort, but I do feel it's true that going back and editing those posts may cause confusion to the flow of the threads in question, and masking a bad past is certainly not something that should be done.
HOWEVER, now that the "How about some more moderators?" thread got locked by Sony, I can't even go back and retract what I said in that thread, or even reply to it.
I don't agree with the whole bashing Craig thing, but I definitely disagree with his decision to make Sony a mod. I simply don't understand the logic of it. Now that the decision has been made, I will respect it and see where it goes. If it doesn't fare well I will state so in PMs to other mods and staff members, and I encourage others to do the same.
Like it or not, these forums are, officially or unofficially, the largest voice of the entire Pandora project. A device like this is nothing without the community, and seeing some of the regulars threatening to leave over this absolutely makes me feel this is a serious issue to them. I appeal to those members to take a breather for a bit and watch the forums for a week to see how Sony does.
This thread should not be locked. Others have pointed out valid arguments, and while some seem angry, I have yet to see a post from these folks that I feel is just plain objectionable.
Lastly, I find it ironic that "Sony" is moderating the Pandora boards.
