Wink What does a moderator look like in the Bar?

Now that the bar is open for business it might be prudent to be able to recognise a moderator or two when they walk in to break up the scrapping; it's been suggested that a mod should be called a bouncer (so that the rockers don't mix it with the mods on Brighton beach maybe?).

So, do they all wear DJs' and Dicky bow ties, or something else that can be recognised?

(still snowing, but the main reason for this thread is to see that a new one can be started).

Would this scare you.....

So Dave, I thought I'd throw "bouncer" in google image search for "What does bouncer look like";


Not what you had in mind?

Wink That's my bouncer chair!

Yep, I reckon google got it wrong - it's mixed it up with the bar furniture; that's the chair I use when down the bar for a pint or three, while watching the Rugby on the big screen.

It's handy for camping as well of course.

So, they work in 3's - probably two hold you, the third one opens the door, and hey presto, you're out in the street!

Quite right, and it's always the quiet one you have to watch out for.

But isn't this supposed to be the place where the bouncers throw you
