Thread Name: BS: Closed threads & deleted posts.
Subject: RE: BS: Closed threads & deleted posts.
Well, I think the moderators should be applauded for doing their job. Adding "squabble" to the one thread makes perfect sense and the other thread remains to contain on target conversation about the topic.

Perhaps? I suggest that any applause be reserved for such time as there is any evidence that such actions are seen to be entirely free from any suspicion of being part of selective and personally motivated witch-hunt on our forum.

For until other poster are seen to be able to post abusive personal judgements only and be safe from any censure and the 'hi-jacking of other threads by them containing this are NOT encouraged to be subjected to such a public frenzy - which seems to be reserved for selective posters only - perhaps any applause is rather hollow? For example.

2,600 Iraq civilians killed in September

But the bottom line is always - is this action actually having any positive affect for our forum - or is it counter-productive? I think there is much evidence that this continuing patchy and unequal treatment of posters by our 'moderators' is counter-productive and very little evidence that it is at all effective. Nor what its aims are.

Whatever these aims may be - they do not appear to include ensuring that our forum can continue to be open for the public's contributions - as it always has.

There could be some suspicion that in fact (some of) our current 'moderators' are actually set on creating a situation where their favoured concept of a change to members only posting is considered by Max more favourable than it currently appears to be.
