Your post was stating that posters were blaming you personally for the allocation of tickets hence you writing, "Is it my fault......". You didn't write, "Is it Corporate customers fault.....". I was pointing out that despite your accusations, no one was blaming you as an individual. They were criticising the clubs policy, which is fair game.
Incredibly pedantic response in my opinion.
I stated that I had noticed that there was a general negative attitude to corporate members and from that, as I was a member, I would take that on board as a personal negative remark (albeit directed as corporate members in general).
I’m not going to go through all the posts that have unfavourable comments about corporate members in general. I obviously need to desensitise myself around this negativity, something I have plenty of experience of due to being ginger and a WHU fan.

Your post attempted to stifle that flow. As a moderator, it is at that point that an individual poster has decided that a personal slight has taken place and tried to dictate the tone of the thread.
If my post attempted to stifle that flow then why are other members in agreement with me?
I made no accusation about criticising the club policies. I am in agreement with many as to the club being more transparent with allocations.
As a moderator surely your job is to also respect other people’s views whether you agree or not.

The flow was good, the conversation polite and the points valid. I didn't need to "say something" to others who were acting correctly.
Your comment, ‘we are not currently recruiting for moderators and are capable of moderating without assistance thanks’ was, in my opinion, completely over the top and somewhat pathetic. Hence my comment, ‘was there any need for that’.
I’ve been a member of this forum before you ventured in and have had, on the whole, a good rapport with both the moderators and many members of this forum. I’m sure many of your fellow moderators, who know me in the real world, would know that in no way was I being disrespectful of your moderating ‘skills’ but just sticking up for myself. Something I am perfectly correct in doing so without another person trying to be so patronising.
