I would suggest that this thread belongs in BS. Except that a thread opened to discuss moderation of the Mudcat doesn't belong anywhere.
It does not discuss a 'lost thread', merely a closed one: Still available here

People may notice that the Walter Pardon thread has now been taken off line by a moderator and will not be reopened - we will have to restart another one in a month's time, largely due to the behaviour of a troll and the refusal of a moderator to deal with her behaviour
I have been forced to the conclusion that I cannot lend my name to a forum which allows such disgraceful behaviour towards one of the mose loved and respected figures of British folksong, someone I am proud to describe as a friend and source of invaluable songs and information for over twenty years
As much as I have tried, the moderator refuses to re-open the thread - he offers only personal abuse - including the suggestion that I am suffering from dementia (Imust warn the next people I give a public talk to of that fact)
The mod has made it wquite clear he despises thi=ose he moderates on behalf of - he describes us as "old men who he regrets having to talk to as children" (quote from a PM)

I have decided to make what is happening here public via any source I can find - it has already driven several people away and, is damaging both the reputation of folk song and that of this once extremely valuable forum
I don't expect this thread to survive very long and it will probably lead to my expulsion, but I will ascertain that this message will reach as many of those who I believe to be as concerned as I am via friends I have made during my thirteen years stay as a member of Mudcat
