    A mod is an arbitrator,ergo post's are deleted by mods,what is the point of a mod if not an arbitrator.
Are you suggesting that Mods argue the point with Posters?[/list]

According to Holly, claiming that someone has expressed a view which is offensive or ludicrous amounts to libel and defamation of the person with the offensive or ludicrous views.  Apparently hypocrisy is also now against forum rules.
How utterly ludicrous!

Quite frankly, Hollyís tyrannical behaviour is driving me away.

She preaches to people demanding they mustnít say this, say that, but sheís exempt!  Sheís always sending warnings, editing posts, removing posts...no wonder so many of the original members have left.

Sheís so condescending and patronising, not to mention hypocritical. She tells people they must only posts factual evidence, whilst posting theories herself. Not only that, many of her theories are ridiculous!

I donít know what her problem is, but Iíve never experienced this on a forum before. She scares people off!

"someone has expressed a view which is offensive or ludicrous amounts to libel and defamation of the person with the offensive or ludicrous views "

Now let me think... where is this happening... erm um...  Oh yes the McCann thread. tsk
Just checked, you never complain about the mods there doing the same thing. Funny that!


"***** preaches to people demanding they mustnít say this, say that, but sheís exempt!  **** always sending warnings, editing posts, removing posts...no wonder so many of the original members have left. "

Yeah  sounds like the mods at the McCann thread.

We do need mods but we need those who are supporting John and not the cause of anghst among posters.

Simple rule:  challenge the post not insult the poster it seems to workmen other forums.

Some mods have spoiled  the many good debates by being emotional involved due to some kind of 'association' with preps.

Youíve selectively quoted me and therefore misunderstood completely what I wrote, so once again you live up to your name Miss Taken.

No. I am saying it like it is. You have an issue which many of us non McCann supporters experience on the McCann thread. I addressed the issue we both believe we are experiencing- of course if you don't think it is happening on the McCann thread then you are being disingenuous  IMO.

I would add that it may be sour grapes because you are not getting away with what you do on the McCann thread and that could be the crux of it.

I disagree with Holly on many issues- I don't need to call her names, or try sarcasm to snipe. I am sure if I did break forum rules she would deal with me.

No, Iím sorry you do not seem to understand at all.

Holly claims that the act of telling someone you think their views are offensive or ludicrous is LIBELLOUS to the person who you are criticising.  This has NEVER been a rule on the McCann forum, nor have I EVER accused someone of libelling ME for expressing their views about my posts.  Do you understand now??

Well I saw this bit and yes my posts were removed and sanctioned for saying something like:the McCanns are rich and getting on with their lives- in response to a post- not libelous at all. But mods didn't like it. Sounds like the same thing to me.

and both wrong. IMO

No it is not the same thing.  I honestly think some people still donít understand what libel means.  It is not possible to libel an anonymous poster for a start.  It is impossible to ruin their real life reputation or livlihood by writing that their views are offensive or ludicrous.  Itís just an excuse being used by one particular mod who doesnít like my views and wants to shut me up. IMO.

Ditto with me on the McCann thread- I don't believe you never noticed it happening to me and other no  supporters.

But thats ok too.   another bun fight-another day :)

I expect you will be as successful as others have been. The truth is that you have to work round the moderators because they won't work around you. Post within the rules and they can't silence you.

Some of them make the rules up as they go along it seems.  Did you know that exhibiting hypocrisy was against the rules?

If your posts are deleted and you feel they broke no rules I recommend appealing.

What are the rules?  They change according to who is modding.  Holly herself has posted libellous material but thatís apparently ok, tell her that her post is offensive however and thatís against forum rules!
