The above is a good example of how things deteriorate to the point that the mods have to start deleting and then members start to ask why their posts were deleted.

The majority of mods here post opinion too and that can often cause conflict if said mod has to moderate those posts. It's a no win situation really but I feel my fellow mods handle it well in those difficult circumstances.

I notice davel is taking some time out, is he off on his hols?

As you have chosen to give your opinion perhaps you could elucidate further? I didn't post an off topic post, but I answered one because it was aimed at me. Futher off topic posts were directed at me, which I also answered. In my opinion a moderator chose to intercede by castigating me for taking part. Why me and not the one driving the discussion? Why was I targetted?

Of course you weren't.


May I just say, as a complete newbie to this thread who knows nothing of possible machinations, agendas and internal politics, that I thought "your" word, vomplain, was both deliberate and brilliant. It's totally self explanatory. When we complain, we spew or vomit the words. I can't be the only one here who had that thought.

As you say, you have no knowledge of the background. All I know is that if a poster feels personally attacked by my posts I tend to apologise for any offence I have inadvetently caused and then explain. That usually satisfies the other party.

I think that you are all very unkind to Moderators.

I am off to Blog about a really nice afternoon.

I think moderators are sometimes unkind too. Enjoy your blogging, I may take a nap.

Thanks for that accolade.  Despite a not very good education there is absolutely nothing wrong with my command of The English Language, in my opinion.

Your command of English is perfectly fine in my opinion for what that's worth.

As I have pointed out several times I have instigated none of it. Why have you chosen to address your post to me instead of to the one who is driving the exchanges?
You have made something out of a nothing throw away remark by me.  You are the one with the problem not me.

You are off topic and I'm not in the mood to tango.

Thank you April, my thoughts exactly.

I have a Mod query.  If you are asked to provide a cite, then provide a cite and are told scornfully that the cite you have provided is inadequate  but without the complainant making any attempt to provide any reasons why the cite is inadequate is that acceptable?

In my opinion cites are caveat emptor; if there is a strong reason for objecting to one ... that should either be given or reported.
