Right. Jim & I have had a chat and unfortunately we are going to have to run the ship a little tighter. From now on really bad language won't be tolerated and we reserve the right to edit posts or delete them completely. I do occasionally lob in a deliberate mis-spelling but from now on that won't be tolerated. One or two on here seem to think that by rearranging the order of the letters will get around the forum swear filters. Mild sweary words are fine, but those effing and blinding will need to stop - you know who you are.

It wont be tolerated any more, nor will posts which are designed solely to inflame posters.

Anyone (again, you know who you are) trying to deliberately provoke posters with crass comments will be warned and their post deleted. Multiple offenders will get deleted themselves.

It is difficult to take each others political and footballs views into account, but it will happen - or face the consequences. Trying to run this whilst working a 60 hour week is not easy, and frankly I'm fed up with it.

:thanks:

I really think that a mountain has been made out of a mole hill here.
I haven't seen any terrible language. There's been a bit of heated argument because people do not share the same views. I see Donks, Paulja1 and KoK as valuable contributors to a lively forum. I don't agree in total with any of them but I see some right in what they all say.
You will be making a big mistake if you over moderate this forum. Mr G, on the Darkside tried it, done great damage and has now backed off with his stupidity.
Also, not to forget, one of you moderators has done much to inflame a situation that you are now complaining about.
A BIG MISTAKE !!!!
My advise to you mods, is leave well enough alone. There's nothing wrong with free speech.
There's nothing so bad on this forum that needs you two jumping up and down like a pair of netball players, you are overreacting.
Onward and upward.
Easy, Easy, oh so Easy.

If this plan is applied even handedly then fair enough.
If moderators are going to not let their own prejudices get in the way of fairness.
My thoughts are though that if a moderator was capable of doing that then they would have been doing it already and this has not been the case.
Moderators should be neutral.
Moderators should not be deliberately setting out to inflame a situation because they have decided that they prefer one persons opinions over another's.Or worse still decide that they don't like someone they have never met.
That is more like Fascism than fairness.

Personally I think the Mods are doing a good job. :thanks:

Being allowed on here is not a human right..

These Mods do this for next to nothing... they give their time and effort and try to keep the forum moving. It must be a thankless task trying to keep everyone happy.

It is best that we do not abuse the privilege of being on what is a really good forum...

The mods have had very little moderation to do on this forum.
Only two people have been ejected from the forum. Outside of that they have probably, in my time, locked no more than a half dozen threads, most of which were aimed at the expelled pair.
Rocker made a mistake and decided to run with the hare while hunting with the hounds, fatal for a moderator, who should never favour one poster over another.
Unfortunately this has caused some turmoil, nothing that couldn't be solved with a couple of PM's.
There has been no reason for heavy handed moderation in the past, that has been the forum's strength.
Why change?
Easy, Easy, oh so Easy.

Could easily have been sorted by a PM.
If I had been in the wrong it is what I would have done.

Trust has now been lost.

Being insulted by people who don't know me really doesn't hurt very much.
It is just bad manners.

I can't ever remember being insulted by people who know me.
I have a good memory as well. :D

Strange that! :shades:
