The Shambles BS: The wisdom of Mudcat's 'silent deletion' (39) RE: BS: The wisdom of Mudcat's 'silent deletion' 20 Apr 07


True, but there are also people who are going to have different opinions than you.   You may wish to label them as individuals who "stick their head in the sand", but you also should recognize that others feel differently than you do.

I think that by now that I do recognise this.

But even if there was such a thing as a inconvertable fact - there would be different opinions expressed about it. If these opinions are based on this fact - that is discussion. And no matter how heated this may get - it is healthy and to be welcomed.

When opinions and judgements are expressed about the poster, without knowledge of the fact or expressed in the face of that fact - it is something else. There are both examples of the individuals mentioned by Frank and myself - I can only hope that neither of these examples would describe us.


Posters and their families were encouraged to attend Miskin 2007 in Mudcat threads, but were denied in those threads, the reasons for its cancellation.

Posters were futher denied this information when the link was provided, and when our anonymous ones 'silently deleted' the entire thread.

Because no explanation was provided for this deletion - the assumption will be made that there was some good reason for this censorship.

When the (now closed) thread was restored - it was obvious that many posters had made the assumption from this action that there was something questionable about providing posters with the information. When the question that posters should have been asking was why the publicly available information was being intentionally witheld from them for so long.   

As certain posts were deleted from the now closed thread - posters were further denied seeing the full explanation that I posted for providing the information. So posters saw all the smoke - but had no way of knowing if there was any fire. And the thread was closed - denying any further discussion and any chance for me to correct these personal judgements and the public speculations made about the worst possible motivations for my posts.   

If this event and the published newspaper accounts of the court proceedings that prevented it - is not judged to be a subject of discussion on our forum - then either ALL references to the event should be 'silently deleted' or all references should be permitted and those posts deleted - be restored.
