    Are you referring to the idea, that the EC had something to do with Vin's suspension? If you are, as far as I can tell, that link first came from you and I first read it on this thread, post #9, or on the thread about Vin's suspension decision. But if someone else said otherwise, please post a link and the quote here.

    To the EC I had not realised that the EC had suspended me from the SPGB Party forum and this led to some confusion with the IC and Moderators . I request that the EC lift my ban and reinstate my account. I undertake to abide by the rules of the forum. May I also ask that the EC reconsiders my nomination as a member of the AV committee as I feel I have something to contribute to the party and our movement?

    Linda,The reason Joe brought the idea of the NERB discussing nominating Vin to get back on the AVC, here on this thread, was to see if we could get a decision agreed on to send to the EC today. Alas, as no one else seemed interested in the discussion, so it looks like we'll have to wait until the next branch meeting on Oct' 24th to discuss the issue.Oh, in case you'd forgotten, the IC didn't permanently ban Vin. As far as I'm aware, Vin only decided to make an appeal to his indefinite suspension, quite recently. The situation regarding the IC, Vin and the EC has been explained a number of times. The last time was post #13 on this thread, by Joe. Cheers,Stephen

    Vin is taking a lot of shit on line and would like to go to ADM and confront his accusers but is not a member of a branch and can no way afford to travel and live in London for a couple of days. Staying over at HO would definitely result in his demise. Any suggestions?

    Same suggestion I made to you months ago. Put together a dossier of evidence and present it to either the EC or ask a branch to look it over.

    Gnome,What do you make of the following from YMS (#277), in reply to my "fair enough assumption"?

    That's what it's all about.

    Gnome,In the absence of any other Party member willing to kick start the process of making Party videos, I don't see any other choice than to get Vin back on the AVC. Cheers,Stephen

    That is my condition. But first, I think, we need some explanation why the E.C. removed Vin from the A.V. committee, in the first place. Seems like an almighty breakdown in communications.

    I think that's an absolute prerequisite and I will personally do my best to elicit an explanation at the Autumn Delegate Meeting next month and trust others will do likewise.Incidentally, at my branch last Sunday I suggested nominating Vin for the AV committee but was told by other members present that it was inconceivable that the present Executive Committee would re-appoint him…

    Can two branches nominate a person for the same post?

    It's a fair enough assumption to make.

    Joe,I agree. I don't see why it couldn't be discussed here and a decision made by a majority of active NERB members. Cheers,Stephen

    LBird,Perhaps I'm a bit dim, but I've never understood what you mean by "reality" and "production of our reality"?Could you attempt to give me a simple explanation, starting with what you mean by "reality"?

    Weird how two forum users who don't like the forum rules, but still choose to post, have used the report feature of this forum for, "experimentation" purposes only. I guess it must be scientific socialism at work?

    May I ask via what channels would permission be requested  and on what grounds would permission be granted/decided upon? How long will it take to come to such a decision?

    I can't think why the moderators want to create this rod to beat their own backs.

    It's the power which appeals, at least to some.  Which is why, in the past, I've argued for an unmoderated forum.  Let's face it, things couldn't have really been that much worse, and in all likelihood a great deal better, than over the past few years.  The almost constant public wrangling cannot have had anything but a deleterious effect.  How many visitors to this forum, does one suppose, have left in dismay, never to return?

    Out of interest, have you ever used the report feature of the forum?
