The forum and the way some have been moderated whilst others have not, ie for flaming, insulting, trolling, has finally led me, a Socialist of unswerving commitment for 31 years, to resign from MY party. Others may feel defferently, and I would appreciate your comments.

I don't know if you will receive this, comrade, but I would ask you to reconsider. My posts are not appearing on the forum.TOGWJanuary 14, 2013 at 2:12 pm #91737AnonymousInactive
Steven,I have just realised that my posts are in a moderation queue! are your posts in a moderation queue? Do you know if ALL members are in a moderation queue? TOGWJanuary 14, 2013 at 2:27 pm #91738AnonymousInactive
Cde Colborn has referred to forum moderation as a farce and as you know he is not the first.A Cde has posted 3 or 4 off topic and provocative posts as gnome then moderated himself as moderator1. Certainly a farce TOGWJanuary 14, 2013 at 4:12 pm #91739AnonymousInactive
I will not bother posting on this forum again until/unless the moderation queue is lifted. By the time my post is shown on the forum it will be out of date. TOGWJanuary 15, 2013 at 1:06 am #91740AnonymousInactive
Comrade,Ignore my last post, it was before I realised that my posts must first be approved by 'moderators' on this forum and now spintcom. The party is in a dark place. It has allowed the so called internet experts to eclipse democracy and freedom of speech. Even George Orwell would turn in his grave with all this double speak.

Steve, it is a sad day when any socialist thinks it is time to leave the WSM because of internal politics. I understand your reluctance and your reasons, having been a member of the SPGB in the past.The only thing I can say, is that this issue will at some point get sorted out. As with any new method of communication, teething problems occur and unfortunately their are always some who see the need for control at any cost. It was the same for the invention of the printing press.Here we have some socialists who think it vital to control the forums by any means they see fit. If the SPGB is truly open and democratic, and I am confident there are enough members who still hold open democracy to be the corner stone of socialism, those who advocate control at any cost will be put in their place.Patience is the key word here. You have fought to advance the cause for world socialism most of your life. A little extra patience with party bureaucracy, will I am sure see the SPGB return to full functioning status and probably be the better for this issue being addressed and dealt with.However if you feel unable to stay a member of the WSM I hope you will not abandon this forum. All the best.January 15, 2013 at 7:29 pm #91742
I certainly do feel unable to stay a member of the SPGB. On clearing my old yahoo e.mails, in preparation for cancelling my membership of all SPGB sites, I read every e.mail and the more I read, the more sure I was, that my decision was the correct one. Talk about frightening the life out of oneself. The mess and the problems were so blatant. The defence of the indefencesible doubly so. People who pride themselves on their logic, being so illogical? A farce I called it, a farce it remains. One sided all of it was, I thought I'd entered into the Politburo!Enjoy.Steve, sickened and saddened.January 15, 2013 at 8:19 pm #91743AnonymousInactive
I am amazed at their contortions. I understand now why they have me on moderation. You cannot be seen to receive support. None of my posts have been allowed. TOGWJanuary 15, 2013 at 11:51 pm #91744

This is what has soured my piss and is, to me unacceptable and has caused my resignation.Steve.January 16, 2013 at 2:44 pm #91745AnonymousInactivesteve colborn wrote:Is OGW banned for 7 days, or is he in a moderation queue?
