Skip to comments.How do you contact a moderator? Aside from posting useless vanities?

I made a screwup, and need to contact a moderator. A guy signed up with the screen name Dr. Richard Kimball. I posted to him, asking him to pick another name, as there might be confusion as to which of us had posted. He was very nice, and did. After making two posts with his new screen name, his privileges were revoked. I think it was because of signing up with multiple screen names.
I feel badly about it, because he seems like a nice guy, and I think I accidentally got him banned. Anyway, I didn't want to flag abuse, which is the only way I know to catch a mod's ear. I also wanted to publicly apologize to him for messing him up early in his freeping career.
This might get their attention. Or me banned, too. We'll find out.
Just send a FReepmail to Admin Moderator. Or ping 'em. Like this.
Did you try just freepmailing the Admin Morderator..or even Jim Robinson??
You could try sending a FREEPmail to Jim Robinson. That'll do more, than this vanity will, since you never pinged any of the Mods to this thread.
Is the Morderator a Lord of the Rings thing?
Dang, I was hoping that was a link to the secret underwold of FR moderators, and then found out it was just a graphic.
Think of it as more of a "locked door."
Reminds me of trying to get tech support from IBM. One of their choices was to "Press 9 and pound."

by the way, something's wrong with that picture you posted. it got cut off at the bottom...
I dont know how anybody else does it, but I just hit "report abuse", explain my problem, and sign my name. "report abuse" gets their attention.
I FReepmailed a mod the other day by doing a "Private Reply" to a post made by "Admin Mod" but didn't get a response, either.
So, I never got an answer to my question, which maybe someone reading here can answer.
How can an existing post be completely deleted without even a note at the space where it was?
Any ideas? Someone referred me to a post which was a reply to an earlier post. I clicked on the link to the earlier post and it wasn't there.
The number sequence just went like "Post #45, Post #47" - there was absolutely nothing where "Post #46" had been.
All I wondered was how that could happen. The poster was still active and posting, so it wasn't that everything had been made to disappear by one poster.
And of course, my replies looked really stupid, linking to "nothing" in two places, answering what had been flames to me.
Is it just me or does DeDe Lind look kind of like a guy in drag?
I know what you mean. I have a really screwed up keyboard. When instructions tell me to press ANY key, I look and look, but I don't have an "ANY" key on my keyboard.
I'm going to demand a refund.
It's just you. Dede's hot. I was twelve when I sneaked the Playboy with her picture in it out of one of my friend's Dad's house. She moved me into puberty all by herself.
Don't worry. I've made lots of stupid replies without the mods doing anything.
