Joe first I should say that I do appreciate the conventional nature of your last contribution. The fact that it was posted honestly - so that the thread is refreshed - is refreshing. Even such a small move back to one where posters behave and are treated equally and are shown respect and encouraged to show mutual respect - is to be welcomed.

I am still confused over the use of 'I' and 'we' and when your personal view begins and when this stops.

I'm sorry, but I cannot take the time to investigate like this every time Shambles suspects that there has been an editorial action.

The answer to this is pretty easy. You either don't impose any at all. Or if 'you' or 'we' do feel that ANY editing action is required - (preferably consulting the originator first) - this is always made clear by an editorial comment - that makes it clear that editing action has been imposed and the details of who judged this was required and the reasons why?

This is what I mean by making it open. If there is nothing to hide - why make it look as if there is? If there is no brown writing - we will all know that no editing action has been undertaken.
