Re: Politics and Moderation

Dabnis,
You should work out the difference between an opinion, that your post was doubly stupid, and censorship or moderation. I don't believe I censored your doubly stupid post did I ? No, I simply opined that it was doubly stupid.
Now I dare say that there is many a Dabnis post that I disagree with yet they remain intact do they not ?
So fear not. If it is within my generally liberal (sorry for using such language) interpretation of the SailNet Scriptures then you can say what you like.
Cheers
Andrew B

ps - someone mentioned the word Dill and that Dill referred to male genitalia. Wrong. A Dill is simply an all purpose idiot.

I was not surprised when he said my post was "stupid" & "garbage". Generally, when someone dis-agrees with you they don't offer compliments.

It also appears that posts get censored or eliminsted without explaination even though they are not political or religious in nature.

It has just happened to a few of mine

Could you explain why that might happen? Can we have a little transparency in the midst of the kambaya.

Maybe I am an insensitive clod, or just plain obtuse but could someone post a list of
offending signatures and avatars? I really can't recall any avatars or signatures I have recoiled in horror upon seeing.

They are or were there. However, they may not have been offensive to you. They may not have been offensive to many others. But to some, who pressed the Report Post button, they were. And the reality is that they don't have a place on a sailing forum anyways. As has been noted, we are one of the few sailing forums that even have a OT. The reason for that is to keep that kind of stuff IN there, not out.

PLEASE don't get rid off "Off-Topic." It is quite different from that same sort of discussion on non-sailing boards, no doubt because of the different nature of the folks that post here. I find it very entertaining, though I only seldom post there. True, it is a place where thick skins are advisable. On the other hand the person is not in front of you and is easily ignored, unlike a neighbor or wife; thus, it is a fun place to hone rhetoric. I consider it a highlight and is often what brings me back.

Hmmm. If you're returning more for the OT section than for the sailing topics, are we doing something wrong?

Re: Politics and Moderation

Usually when a thread disappears it is because it was so incendiary that the moderators didn't want any remnants of it around or, as was the case with the AC thread, there was a lot of behind the scenes discussion and we needed to put it in a holding tank out of site to give us time to discuss without additional posts making things worse. In that case, it doesn't always mean the thread won't be plunked back in for general viewing, just that we need some breathing room to sort things out.
