I did report it, his post was removed and no warning points appear to have been awarded.  Did you deal with it I wonder?  I think we have a right to point out inconsistencies in the way we are all treated, s'all.

It's not usual for moderators to inform members what actions they have taken and why. This area has been set aside for discussions on Moderation, the other threads are for discussing their subjects, as written in the titles.
No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.

The General posted a nasty, scathing attack on Sadie and received no warning and therefore no points.  I want to know why not, when I got points for pointing this out to the forum.  If you won't address this issue, then perhaps another moderator could explain?

I can explain why you got points. I know that you know the rules because I spent time explaining them to you here. You made it plain here that you preferred to ignore them. You did so with your post and you did it deliberately. Your post was off topic, goading, critical of the moderators and of the way the forum works.

I have read the last few pages of this thread with interest and removed those posts which have no place here.

The rules are very straightforward, abide by them and you are most welcome, abuse the facility and you will be removed. And on that point let me assure that this applies to all members. It is not the first time a member has had their account deleted after a period of prolonged agitation.

The reporting system on this forum is there for all to use. There is no point in complaining afterwards if you can't be bothered to report rules breaches. You also have the option to message a member of the Admin team if deemed necessary.

Anyone with further questions related to moderation please message me.

I got points for a) pointing out that you post was off topic (which it was) and b) pointing out that the General's post was an ad hom (which it was).  No one can explain to me why making two factual posts should result in a warning, when a nasty attack on Sadie should result in no warning.

I reported the scathing, ad hom attack on The General, and though it was removed the General received no points for it, while I DID for pointing out that it was a nasty scathing attack.  Is that fair moderating?  I think not.  Delete away, give me points, ban me, do what you think best.

Good question.  Just been sworn at twice in the same post by the moderator who gave me a warning for my bad language.  Perhaps the number one rule around these parts is “do as I say, not as I do”?

I'll take a stab this might be an appropriate subsection for this:  please remove the "on a slum tourism trip" from the description of Anni Hindocha's forum section.  As that is not true.  That was a claim her husband made to explain their otherwise inexplicable nighttime trip into the township.

And even her husband no longer makes that claim.  By the time of his trial he had concocted another excuse to try and explain the taxi ride into the township.

Can someone please point me to the forum rule that says it is forbidden to be condescending towards another member?  I would like to clarify exactly what being condescending means as I intend to report all condescending posts from now on and will be watching closely to ensure that others receive warnings for breaking this  rule.  Many thanks.
