There are some who wonder if over the Years, the internet will eventually gain self awareness and become a living being. All I can say is that based on this thread, it's going to come into the world needing a large aspirin and a lot of counselling...

Seadog, I should have added the caveat 'in public' they form circle, what goes on in the mod cave, I could not possible comment on :eek:

I know some banned members have been allowed back, but I still do not remember seeing a deleted thread or post reinstated, admittedly that could be because I do not read every thread

In the bit of the site that isn't public, there have been occasions when mods have disagreed on a course of action before or after it has been taken. This has resulted in the restoration of a complete post, text or reinstatement of a banned member, or the halting of executive action. We don't always agree, different perspectives are brought to the table. Contrary to what some would have you/us believe, moderation is not done on a whim, unless it's spam, links to porn etc when consultation, before or retrospectivel

Surely what you mean is:

"Sometimes moderators gang up on a fellow mod behind our cloak of invisibility and have a decision reversed."

Can't quite remember who said that but it does kind of hint at the mob mentality under which you seem to operate. :)

And if, as you claim, moderation is not done on a whim then how do you justify statements such as: "How I choose to moderate is my business."


Anytime you want to borrow another spade - just ask :)

I don't see any contradiction in the statement "moderate in the way I choose". The Mod does his/her job as they see it. They may then be held to account for their actions, but not in the full glare of the site. As has been said before this has resulted in the past in some posts/members being reinstated.

This site is comparatively gentle to its posters, if you want to see " robust" moderating in action spend some time on Arrse and try to be as "smart" over there. Or have you been binned from there already so you thought a wee bit of mayhem is due on RR?

So, just to get this right, there are no rules or guidelines as to how a moderator exercises their power of censorship or deletion, each one makes his own decision as they see fit. Hmm, rather whimsical I'd say.

Your claim of comparatively gentle moderating is simply laughable. You may recall purple helmet deleted an entire thread simply because, on his own volition, he couldn't be arrsed to respond.

ALL the questions I have asked in this thread remain unanswered. You demean yourselves and the naval community you pretend to represent. I shit on you.

Tanzi, you have now expressed your point. I have no great love of a couple of the mods, but needs must. So, please take your medication and join in with the rest of us, PSOFs or not - who cares? I mean REALLY cares?

I have not the time or inclination to read this thread end to end. Tanzi besides being a winging twat what part of the Armed Services do you represent or support? If you have a concern about a MOD then PM the site admin team, they will respond but by your attitude you will not like what comes back, you have had your say and moan so stay and be a part of RR or piss off the choice is yours or any MOD who chooses to delete you, have nice day, what am i doing posting at a W/E?

The fact that Tanzi is still here is testament to the laissez faire attitude that the enlightened moderators exercise in support of the COs' orders.

Patience is wearing thin though. Down to 1 micron.

Let's get one thing clear - this is an unofficial site and in no way represents the Royal Navy. You should have read the notice on the door when you joined!

Er.hmmm.well. If that's the case, the whole point of this thread is vindicated, and the thread in question should not have been deleted

I disagree. The post was not deleted on orders from MoD to Mod but because the Mod thought it inappropriate at the time it was posted.

His decision and not one of the MoD, a decision which I consider was made for all the right reasons, which is more than I can say about some posts on this, rapidly becoming tedious, thread.

Right Tanzi for fecks sake stop feeding the Trolls (MODs)

too many Mod's mods and MODs arrgghhhhhh.

But back on track, the thread was deleted as responses from SOME members may have contravened a DIN (I believe that is the term, but whatever the term, it was issued by the Ministry of Defence), now as the site in no way represents the RN how could a directive from the Ministry of Defence be used as a reason for deleting the thread, if serving RNR personnel choose to ignore the guidance they were given by their employer, that would be their choice. And when all is said and done, the DIN was pretty much irrelevant anyway, when 5 former Sea Lords sing out, who the hell is going to care what a reservist has to say. PT had a kneejerk reaction, and he probably had the best intentions in the world in regards to protecting Serving RNR from POSSIBLE repercussions, but the RNR are adults, and perhaps a note reminding them of the directive, or moving the thread from the RNR section to the barg or lils would have been much more appropriate rather than a thread deletion.
