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 

 

Easy. Stop wasting your time on the unnecessary moderation of me. You seem to have plenty of time for that. There is a lot worse than me on this forum of which you have every right to suspend _ permamently.

Surely moderation of all posts is in the collective interest without exception?  Your reasoning above is it seems is in contradiction to what you have posted elsewhere on this site.

Come on Vin.

I think it's a bit un-comradely to call for others to be banned from this forum. If you recall there are Party members who didn't want you back in the SPGB and on the forum, citing disruption as the reason. I would have thought you would rise above their level after being on the receiving end yourself.

I was not disruptive. The EC members that claimed I was were party to a dispute with me so had an axe to grind.

My point didn't really come across in my last post - I meant compared to me there are some that should be took out and shot. Hyperbole to make a point. I am a well behaved pussy compared to some is what I mean. There are some who are plain nasty and sarcastic, don't have an argument so insult people or take the piss.

Not sure who your'e referring to, JC is no longer in the SPGB.

I know there were axes to grind, I was keeping an eye on things. But my point still stands, if suspensions are warranted, Mod1 will swing into action. Remember you aint the only one on the receiving end of a suspension in recent months.

The problem with going on at the moderator to leave you alone is it confuses the situation, that expands becoming an issue of itself, taking center stage and making it harder to ascertain if you are being unfairly treated.

Just a bit of friendly advice.smiley

I wanted to stay out of this but the recent post by mod1 has forced my hand! I would suggest that before comrades make up their minds about the rights and wrongs here, they look at the posts made by "comrades" on spintcom and spopen, at the time, that villified 2 "ex" members who, by not then, being in the Party, had no redress from the vile, abusive things said, of them.

Members will have to address their own sense of conscience, to decide if they were culpable. Or, we could just say, lets just be fucking "adults" and moreover treat posts on the Forum with our supposed intelligence, not be so fucking sensitive, give a bit of fucking leeway and get on with what we are here for, in the first instance, thats "right", advocating and working for SOCIALISM.

No.... I'm not drunk, nor drugged up, just cheesed of, that a Party that prides itself on the its case "against" Capitalism and "for" Socialism, and the cogency of and for the same, cannot get itself sorted to allow free and open discussion on its Forum!!!

What's all this shouting?  We'll have no trouble here!!  

We aren't a revolutionary movement, Tubbs!  It's just a local shop for local people!

I just hope its also clear to other users where I stand on this issue, for I make no secrets and I have no secrets.  And whilst I remember the I.C. do not hold meetings in secret, in fact we do not hold meetings.  But obviously we do use the internet to communicate with each other on the work of the committee.  

 

 

I have emails from the IC that states 'the IC has decided....'

If you don't hold meetings how do you decide when to allow a suspended  user back on the forum for example?

An exchange of emails within a discrete group of individuals resulting in a decision that affects others is  a secret meeting?

 

Don't try and pull the wool over my eys, I am too long in the tooth for that.wink

 

 

We don't hold meetings in the sense that a meeting is called and an agenda set, chair appointed, etc.  When a user is suspended they are informed by me how long their suspension will last.  In most cases this is my decision to call.  If however,  I'm uncertain on how long the suspension should last I'll consult with the I.C. and the user is informed of the decision reached.

How is this decision making process discrete or secret when the party concerned is informed of the decision reached?

If however you favour an open meeting to discuss such issues be arranged here on the forum I advise you to take it up with the I.C. to find out if such a proposal is practical.  If it is a practical suggestion then take it up with your Branch and if they agree contact the EC with your proposal.

Its no big deal from my side.  But like I said most decisions regarding suspensions rest with me.  And all decisions on suspensions that I make have gone through the process of a reminder being posted and 3 warnings issued.  There is nothing discrete or secret about that process.

You may very well have a case for open and transparent meetings when a complaint is discussed by the I.C. but even that process is fully recorded and the files kept on record for those who wish to view them or to pass onto the EC if the complainant is making an appeal.

But this is all old ground we are covering here which you are very familiar with.  And the present decision making process will only change if and when there are 2 or more moderators here instead of one.
