    Wow, the thread, Personal attacks close a thread sure got closed fast. If the stated reason was the real reason, that being it was in the wrong subject thread field, then a whole host of other threads I have followed in the past year or so should have been shut down quickly also.

    Oh well, moderators discretion I guess. :tonofbricks:

    OH, just give it time, I am sure a heavy handed moderator that is running unchecked will come around and close this one too.

    We wouldn't want anyone to question the reasons of simple things like staying within the rules.... :rolleyes:

    That depends on who is being attacked.

    Cheers,

    Didn't take my T-bird away, just deflated four tyres and took away my air pump.

    Cheers,

    You can find the agreement that you all signed when you joined, under the Posting Rules.

    This thread is threadbare.

    I don't think anyone is questioning that. The issue is that a rogue mod can play unfair. Yeah, it may be in the rules, but there seems to be no accountability...and that is bad for the board.

    Sue, we all signed that with the understanding that we would be treated fairly within those rules. That a Christian attitude when it came to disagreements would be the normal and not the exception.

    If the owner of this board don't want healthy debate from both sides without a bias moderator clipping and cutting, then maybe he should close the debate forum and only have general discussion forums.

    It is rather ironic that we get noted for off statements, when one reads all the vulgar statements made about Mr. Obama stand out in the moderator's own posts. I don't get it, and I couldn't care less about American politics.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    There are no "rogue moderators" on here. We are subject to accountability to each other for our moderating efforts and to the owner of this board who pays for all of it.

    It helps to remember that just because you cannot see personal attacks on a closed thread does not mean they are not there - those posts are deleted and members can no longer see them, but other moderators and administrators can still see them in the software.

    Personal attacks and innuendoes against other members have been and will continue to be deleted, snipped, and/or the thread closed on the Politics and News forums.

    It is a privilege to post here, not a right, and everyone has signed agreeing to the board rules when they joined. I have wondered if a paid membership to the BB might be a good idea. People might think twice about what they post if they stand a chance to lose some money when they are suspended or banned for disregarding the rules......

    The site would suffer a large decline in advertising revenue. Let alone the site would probably die out.

    There is a moderator on here who posts vulgar statements about Mr. Obama? Please post the links to those vulgar statements so they can be taken care of promptly.

    Well, that would kill the BB dead.

    You forget, LE, how cheap people like me are.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    That, like most things in life, is a matter of opinion.

    You guys are complaining about the closing of a moderator-bashing thread in the NEWS forum ?

    :laugh:

    I am not the moderator of this forum, but if I were I would close it right away.
    There are debate forums and discussion forums.
    The moderators and administration are not up for debate or discussion.
    This is a discussion forum for fellowship, not a complaint forum.
    In fact I don't see any forum on this board labeled "Complaint Forum."
    If you have one you ought to be pm'ing the one with whom you have a complaint, not airing out your dirty laundry in public.

    Does not the Bible say: If you have ought against your brother/sister, go to him (in private). What is being done here is not Scriptural, and is against the rules.
    What rules.
    It is not showing grace to others.
