A recent visit to the eHam SDR Forum again confirms that eHam is effectively being run by trolls. The moderators are at best AWOL, and often defend the open trolling. What a failure.
I’ve written about the eHam Moderator Failure for years:
2013 – EHAM SHOULD BE ASHAMED HAVING BECOME THE SDR TROLL-FEST OF AMATEUR RADIO – Link
2011 – WHY I SKIP THE EHAM FORUMS – Link
2008 – EHAM – HAM COMMUNITY CROSS SECTION OR HAM HOBO-LAND? – Link
With a seven year effort to ask the Moderators at eHam to clean up their mess to no response, and even having these faux-moderators take me to task for complaining, it is crystal clear – eHam likes & supports Trolls.
Suppose in the eHam rational anything that increases page views – aka “hits” chargeable to advertisers – is a good thing.
Or perhaps the Trolls are nothing more than pseudonyms of the eHam Moderators?
Nothing else seems to make sense.
Regardless of the eHam rational, they are failing the amateur radio community by allowing their pet pack of Trolls to run off anyone who doesn’t agree with their non-user ultra-negative falsehoods-based Trolling.
This makes the Moderators “Assistant Trolls” if not actually qualifying them as Trolls themselves, and shame on them.
To so many of us who actually spend some coin enjoying this hobby eHam has lost relevance because of their Troll-Enablement moderation. I guess that is why I look at eHam but once in a great while, and usually leave disappointed.
A word to the advertisers at eHam, while I do buy your products I will never click on a eHam ad. This is my quiet simple protest of the foulness eHam supports. No advertisers will earn my dollars through an eHam ad, ever.
