So it's OK for Max to be burdened with processing written reports (rather than put some trust in the people he appoints) and at the same time not to be expeceted to sort out squabbles.

There are two cases detailed in this thread alone (and many others that I have evidenced) - where it is shown that this trust was misplaced. All of this does a lot of harm to our forum especially when it is simply defended and remains unchanged - until the next time.

I suggested that if they should remain - that volunteers having to fill out written reports was one way of limiting these types of incorrect imposed editing - for really minor things and general 'tinkering' with other people's posts that could easily be left alone. Max does not have to ever read them.......*Smiles*

The best solution would be to have no routine imposed editing at all. In truth - the only editing action that Max really needs to decide on is if he wishes the libellious or rare extreme posting to remain on his website. These are rare and can easily be brought to his attention.

The rest is up to us.
