The Shambles BS: Posting with Civility (235* d) RE: BS: Posting with Civility 15 Feb 07

Azizi - At least your contributions to this thread remain as posted.

To my knowledge - at least 5 posts (since this thread was refreshed in February) have been 'silently deleted' from it.

Apart from all the other issues arising from this, on a purely practical level, this has resulted in much needless confusion on our forum, as none of these deletions were recorded as taking place.

Even if it were just to avoid this confusion - it would surely be a simple matter to ensure that all such imposed actions are recorded? And if recording this in editing comments is thought to be too much effort (by those who usually seem eager for the slightest excuse to insert them into existing posts in threads) - perhaps such actions could cease?

It would be welcome if just some of the effort that currently goes into preventing discussion were to be devoted to encouraging both this and in encouraging new contributors to feel this was a place where they could safely express their views.

But perhaps this is not thought to be the object anymore?

But again on a practical level - it should be remembered that those who choose to exert power without responsibilty have little credibilty when demanding that others act responsibly.
