It is quite noticible that for once the shabmles has opted not to quote with the names. Let us try it in shambles normal style (cut down a little by me to shorten my posting while retaining what shambles quoted):

there are some (very few) cases where deletion could be allowed, I think, namely when a potentially libellous comment has been made; or when personal information about someone has been disclosed, that could be open to abuse; that would be to keep Max safe from prosecution, as the owner of the forum.

Xander, you talk rubbish - as Martin Gibbons might have said in more flowery language :-)

Absolute freedom is open to absolute abuse and would destroy this forum. Normal rules of civility should apply, and where they do not, the clones should be allowed to trim offending or time-wasting (or disk space-wasting) texts.

Whether we agree with El Greko's actions or not, it was quite obvious to any that the character Xander he created was a different "personality" to "El Greko" and as such obviously took a different stance for the "joke".

I belieive shables (unusual) ommision of the names of posters is soley due to the fact that shambles is quite aware that his argument would become nonsensical had they been included but by ommision, he had another oppertunity to shit stir.
