Simon,

Point taken. That was really just my way of hinting that I felt there was a misunderstanding. And that they could sort it out on their own. Maybe I should be more blunt?

I didn't delete anything -- even though I'm supposed to remove content like that -- partly, as I said, because it would not resolve the misunderstanding, but also partly because I don't enjoy editing content.

The flip-side is that tomorrow morning I would have several reported posts or PM's asking why that material has not been "moderated". So, darned if I do and darned if I don't. Unless I delete more liberally, it's a no-win situation. But if I took that approach, you and most everybody else would be blissfully unaware and we wouldn't even be having this conversation. That's how it works in a lot of places -- you simply never see the moderated content, so there's nothing to object about.

So while I respect your views, I bristle at the suggestion that my approach is heavy handed. It's a lot more time consuming for me to do it this way, but I think I'm being reasonable. Anyway, you're entitled to your opinion, so no worries mate.

To be fair, he is on the finest European painkillers. Short of sending him my excellent vintage port, there is nothing more effective.

Listen to this solo sailor. Weeks alone on the sea have polished his arguments to a high gloss...which is good, because sometimes it goes the other way and the parrot does most of the talking.

For mine, if Alex is content to let this pass the so be it.

blt2ski John,

Now I see what you are doing! better call than deleting the posts. And knowing Alex, he will figure out the misunderstanding and correct himself, unless of course in his drugged afterward state thought he was saying a joke too..........

This is of course assuming they both acknowledge the misunderstanding!

MArty,

Yes we do. I suppose we could do that.

But if we make it all disappear then this misunderstanding will never get resolved, and the animosity (if there is any -- not absolutely sure?) will linger, because all they'll see is that we deleted their posts. Charlie did a nice job of explaining the situation, so I'd like them to see that and then edit their own posts.

This approach results in some material remaining up longer than it should, but overall I think it's the better approach. Opinions may vary.
