You are being snide in that post!

"Mocking in an indirect way"

In my opinion of course.

You're fond of accusing others, aren't you? I don't know whether VS is able to judge his/her own posts or not.

Did I say that?  No.  I said I didnít know whichpost so offended the mods, especially as none seemed to have been doctored or removed.

To be fair I would say a reasonable percentage of my posts are snide, but Iím certainly not the only one guilty of such disgusting behaviour..  There are others far more masterful in the art of snidery than me, mostly on the sceptic side IMO..

Davel has just posted on another thread that John has told him that he is being unfairly moderated. I wonder if John could respond to this accusation?
'She ( Kate) did, she brought it up and that she, I mean, this is awful in retrospect as well, she asked what my opinion was on, erm, tut, on whether they were okay leaving the, the doors unlocked, because she was saying 'Is it better that if Madeleine wakes up she can get out and find us or', erm, 'or locking it and, you know, finding that we're not there and the door's locked if she woke up', because Madeleine had woken up, what I thought was the night before. Erm, tut, and it was in that context really, just asking, you know, what I thought. So it was obviously something that was on her mind a bit, huh'.

I got 10% watning for being ďpatronising ď.  Can we please see this patronising post so that it can be understood which part of it contravened forum rules?

I'd like to thank Eleanor for being willing to take part in this discussion. Moderating is a difficult job which I personally wouldn't touch with a bargepole. It seems to me that moderators end up between the devil and the deep blue sea. It must be annoying to delete a post and then see it reinstated.  It also encourages members to think moderators arem't doing their job properly, so it leads to more challenges and arguments.

On the other hand I'm sure I'm not the only member who has posted a carefully worded post or two and then discovered them gone because I was involved in a discussion triggered by a post which moderators have decided, with hindsight, needs deleting.

Members can't be expected to read back before posting to ensure that previous posts are within the rules; that's not their responsibilty. I think speed of reaction by moderators is the problem here. If moderators dealt with unacceptable posts immediately then no-one would br able to reply to them.
Do you think we've got nothing else to do?
Moderation
John has instructed all moderators to take a very strong line with posters who constantly breach the rules of this forum.  This sniping, goading, name calling and other various forms of disruption will cease.

I've seen Rob struggling to decide what is and isn't acceptable too. It seems moderators aren't completely sure of the rules they're enforcing.
People keep inventing ways which appear to be designed to insult.  Do they fall within the rules?

I've had a lot of penalty points, and been banned... Every time by my own choice.
However I've found when I stopped replying and challenging goading posts from moderators things have gone a lot smoother...

And a lot quieter which obviously suits the mods as now they have virtually no new posts to moderate.  Itís Dullsville Arizona here, unless you get your kicks from discussing door mechanisms.

Telling a mod to stick it up their arse isn't a smart response in anyone's book.

Maybe not, but perhaps you could tell me why there is a mod on here who is allowed to post opinion as fact time and time again and refuses to moderate his own posts?
