Naval Commander is a flasher is the second thread, (the first relating to the Prince's serving abroad) which a moderator has intervened and either stopped the thread or curtailed any further discussion. Rum Ration as I understand it is a chat forum open to all and as long as you abide within the laid down rules, then there are no problems with discussing your point of views and reading others. I admit that most people on this site are 'like minded' and indeed in both cases agree with the moderators view, however, I am concerned with the rights people have to prevent a discussion, just because they personally disagree. I do not disagree that it is the moderators job to moderator, weeding out anything not approved within the RR rules, (and some do a great job) but surely the moderator is not to act as an outright censor, determining what can be discussed, at what time and when, solely based upon their own opinions? My concern is that this is the second time Iâ€™ve seen this, therefore are we not setting a dangerous precedence, allow moderators not only to police their forums (as they should do) but determining if a thread can or cant be discussed on the basis of their own views, without having any relevance to the rules in RR regarding the posting of threads? This is not a personal attack upon anyone or an attack on RR itself. I do really enjoy RR and the variety of viewpoints expressed, I welcome your thoughts? Am I just reading too much into this?
