Moderation should be less bias and discriminatory. For example, Why allow this open letter to the left but bin my open letter to Russell Brand?

Its been explained to you in another thread why this open letter is allowed.  Its also been explained to you in another thread why your posting of the open letter to Russell Brand was considered to be inappropriate for the forum.

If by being less bias and discriminatory you mean I ignore that this post actually breaks Rule 6. Do not make repeated postings of the same or similar messages to the same thread, or to multiple threads or forums (‘cross-posting’). Do not make multiple postings within a thread that could be consolidated into a single post (‘serial posting’). Do not post an excessive number of threads, posts, or private messages within a limited period of time (‘flooding’).  

That's fine by me, but other posters may well suggest I'm being biased and non-discriminatory towards your postings!  So from where I'm standing I'm in for a kicking whatever I do.

The guy who cries "Bin It" like a demented frog, a calls for action against another poster but whose posts do not incur a warning until someone else complains! I think Vin has at least a partial point!!! There does seem to be a bias at work here.

Can someone tell me what this opinion is that we have been mandated to prevent? Must have missed that memo..

 

So you you have never exchanged emails with other   IC and EC members about how to deal with me on the forum? And come to a decision on how long I will be allowed to speak and what I will be allowed to say before suspension?

Would you like to make them public as should be the case in a socialist organisation? So people can decide for themselves?

 

Maybe a memo DOH!

As I have pointed out and explained to you over and over again. It does not braek any rules: It is not a repeated thread. I have also asked you to show me the thread it repeats but you can't because it doesn't exist.

Can you publish the exchange of emails you have had with other IC members on this subject  as would be fitting for a socialist organisation?

Its a repeated cross-posting   and therefore in breach of Rule 6.

As I keep saying 'Show me' Show me the Russel Brand letter on the forum.  Why don't you admit to being wrong or making a mistake?

How will I know if my post is innappropriate in future? You will not decide until I have posted it! Why not stretch your imagination to a world where I can post anything as long as it hurts no one smiley

It's not a question of hurting anyone but of understanding the rules.  But if I suggest any more than that I know I'm in for a hammering with you probably accussing me of preaching or lecturing.  Lol.

Anyways basically the rules are there so the flow of the thread is not disrupted.  Figure it out for yourself why it gets disrupted, but my advice is that before you click the save box read your message and ask yourself how will other posters react to how I've expressed this particular message?  Don't do it once but several times and if any doubt is raised delete.  You would be suprised how many messages I deliberately delete during the week.

Paddy Shannon you may have noticed does not show his face here.  Can I suggest you contact him and ask him why?  I know what his advice is going to be but no harm in finding out for yourself.  Ooops that's a breach of the rules.

Before I forget it would be appreciated if you are  keeping track and making a list of any suggestions you have for moderation.  Anything which makes life easier all round would be very welcome.  I agree the rules need reviewing but right now I just have not got the time to sacrifice or the same amount of energy I put into the Swansea report over two years ago.  I've got older and slower.  Damn another breach f**.

See we all do it!  Lovl

I dont miss Paddy Shannon, never heard of him but you could ask him why I left the forum or him being the great democrat I suspect he is he wouldnt listen to my point of view. By the the real reason why he left will have nothing to do with his excuses.
