    Angry Whats with all the censorship ?

    Is this China ?

    In the last 9 days there's been more threads locked or altogether deleted than in the previous 7 year

    That's without scores of posts being removed or censored

    What's the point of all this ?

    Some people have genuine grievances and should be allowed to air them

    Haven't the new mods figured out that as they try in vain to put out one fire another gets started almost instantaneously ?

    Best let people say their piece I think..

    (and without the threat of being banned)

    Yeah Ive noticed the threads just disappear...
    Even threads created by dubious 2 month old "members" seem to be going.

    Probably because it was so transparent what was going on eh?

    If members wish to air whats on their minds they are free to do so but when they start being abusive or posting pictures of peoples kids then a line must be drawn and it has to be removed from the forum.

    That's what I'm saying mate

    People have been here for 5,6 7 years

    Why should they not make their feelings known ?

    Potheads original resignation thread deleted as was melloweds and a few others

    None of which broke any rules

    People like to throw shitballs and don't like it when there thrown back

    Unfortunately Smoggy, seeing as how the new owners are taking ownership of everything posted on here they can do exactly what they want to with it. Including (but not limited to) disseminating material or deleting of material.
    Not a thing any of us can do about it except vote with our feet (i.e. fuck off somewhere that isn't run as a dictatorship)


    ETA: I do agree that posting pics of people's kids is taking it a bit too far though, if people have left I see nothing to be gained by coming back to post shite.

    not being funny, but since the place got taken over everything went tits up, people getting banned stuff not being deleted when they asked to be deleted, surely there stuff is there stuff not the forums, its all a joke how it came out really is, but no1 will get a explanation why people got banned threads shut because the new people don't have a clue on what there doing, AND THAT IS MY OPINION

    Let me try to clear things up for you. the ONLY posts that are getting deleted are the ones that either have personal information in them or are slanderous. There are plenty of posts that are still up where people talk about what assholes some people think that we are and how they think that we did things wrong and we welcome your thoughts and ideas although we would greatly prefer that they were helpful and not so negative. In addition, we have deleted posts where people have asked us to delete them if we thought that it was appropriate and would not harm the content of the site in any way.

    Does that mean that you will not be deleting posts from ex-members (who have requested such) if, in your opinion, the removal of their posts "harms the content of the site"?


    This, after telling people that they can have their activity deleted by request, seems very underhanded IMO.
    (Of course I'm open to correction if I misconstrued any of the above)

    No reason as to why (stinky's) the 2 month old noobs "Dear Moderation Team We <3 YOU + H8 TROLLs " thread had to disappear or did that delve into the realms of slander?

    I liked that thread, it was full of mystery but mostly a good one for observation

    How can removing a post harm the site ?
    are you keeping all the useful info/pictures on the site in the hope to answer anyone questions

    This will only lead to more members leaving and I am very disappointed as I was told any pics/ post would be removed if I asked a mod

    i have answered these questions a hundred times before, i have not changed we will continue to respect the wishes of all who don't attack the forum. you want to post your opinions, fine do so. BUT any posts that breaks forum rules will be deleted. if you break the rules and are banned by a mod you lose my willingness to fulfill your requests.
