Me being a thick cnut thought at times ,I had pressed the wrong buttons, as from time to time some of the sh*t I have written has disappeared.

I did not realise we had censorship to the degree that at a whim and without any warning (or even being informed )that your posts could be given disappear medicine.

Surely just every day good manners dictate that at the very least you are informed. No? Then an explanation as to why not is in order.

This has been going on for years mate and to a point i agree that some of the shite that is written-including mine at times-should be deleted from threads. However i seem to remember that at one point when a post was deleted an explanation was made as to the reasoning behind it from the MODS seadog included. Personally i have no beef with any of the MODS and i guess it should also be added that they have lives unlike some of us at the moment and decided on the spur of the moment that what was posted was inappropriate to that forum.

As an aside the author of this thread (Andym) and Seadog have Hx going back 2-3 years if i remember so this is by no means a new lovers tiff between them!!

For those who still need reminding, this is from The Rules of RR as laid down by Bad CO, one of the two bosses who founded the site:

Bad CO said:
3. Serious boards

Current Affairs, Finance, Naval History, Charity

Our serious boards are heavily moderated as we aim to keep them sensible and relevant for those who wish to engage in serious discussion. The following are not tolerated:

a. Taking thread off topic
b. Moderate swearing / abuse of other users.
c. Non-contributory posting ie pointless ranting.

MODERATORS

The site moderators exist to ensure that the site is managed in accordance with the policy detailed above. They are to decide how the policy is implemented in their own forum and may wish to post details of their moderation policy. Please repect the moderators' decisions, but if you have any complaints about moderation policies, write to admin @ rumration.co.uk or to one of the "COs" using the site instant message system.
As is often said, it's 'their trainset' so what they say goes. This is from the Moderation Policy for the Current Affairs forum and is entirely consistent with Bad CO's words above:

Seadog said:
The Current Affairs board exists to promulgate, discuss and /or comment on stories in the news, local (to the initiating poster), national and international. Gossip, rumour, dits and idle banter belong in the Quarterdeck or even Lil's (for those who want a more gloves off / gobbing off style). You don't need to be a graduate of the Advanced Command and Staff Course to participate but it is hoped that the board will reach an level similar to that on ARRSE. Civil, relevant, considered, lively, informed, serious. ARRSE is regularly referred to in the media, it would be nice if Rum Ration achieves similar kudos. A link to the story is usually appropriate.

Part Time Pongo has moderated the ARRSE Current Affairs board for several years and he can be credited with creating an environment in which the right kind of people want to participate. I defer to his experience and moderation policy on this forum too.

OPSEC. Keep our secrets secret. PERSEC. No names no cap tallies unless the name is already public knowledge.

Keep it civil, keep it relevant, keep it out of the gutter. Contrary to the notion of certain posters, neither Rum Ration nor ARRSE are democracies where free speech is sacred. They are the COs’ train sets and they rely on the moderators to keep them out of the brown and smelly. Those of us still serving prefer our interviews with coffee. If PTP or I are not around and another Mod steps in to comment on contentious posts, please be guided by them.

Read the stickies regarding each forums rules re language, content, thread driftage etc and then compare them to the content of your posts.
As Seadog is the MOD for Current Affairs, our sites most rigourously MODed, with good reason, forum then it maybe that the post infringed on CA rules.
They're posted, you break 'em it goes.
As ever it is not so much the mopderation that is complained of but the sryle.

As you will know I fully support moderation when it is needed, but to be effective and encourage better and 'safer' posting both the offender and the community at large should be made aware of the action taken and the reasons.

Now, I know that I am a prize candidate for crayoning on forums, but.
I believe that from time to time MOD privelages should be rotated so as to avoid this kind of sh1te.

There are also some MODs listed who haven't been see since 1904. There are some very good MODs. (Yes you too NZB, even if you are a sheep shagiing cross dressing pole slurper.) But there are also some stale, embittered, privelage abusing twarts.

Why not let those who THINK they can do better prove it?

The rules are there permanantly for all to see, if members can't or won't abide by them they must run the risk of their posts being axed.
This is an open forum, that anyone can read, do we want the CA forum to contain material which would be better suited to Lil's?
Read the post re CA posting rules by Seadog quoted in Naval Gazers post, SD is only trying to maintain a level of quality that 'outsiders' could think of as informed comment rather than rants or unacceptable.
Let's remember that there's some history between Andy and Seadog and entering into a dialogue in the thread would only further detract from or divert attention away from the thread's original content.
PS I don't know the content or even the thread from which Andy's post was chopped.
Indeed but none of that is an excuse or justification for discourtesy. The point of moderation should be to yes ensure that postings meet the rule, but also to guide by example and help those who have difficulty with the rules and at all times to behave in a proper manner.

It is worth notoing that most of the moderators here do not have 'history' with other members.

you're asking the wrong people - e-mail the COs - they are the ones who confer modship. I don't think any of the current MODs asked - they were all invited by the COs.

I know that the COs are wary of overdoing the number of MODs, and that they want to maintain a balance, but as you say there are a number who have not been seen for a while and maybe its time to refresh the gene pool on a one for one basis.

But as I said, thoughts such as these should be directed at the COs.

Andy, you went into CA's with both guns blazing directed at the MOD. You should'nt be surprised that your posts were chopped.

Whats interesting about that thread is the sympathy given by the supposedly intelligent members of RR towards a convicted criminal.

"shrewd operator", "out of character", "I served with him", "his list of achievements"

Whilst comments like "sack him", "no pension", are just wrong in this case, I did notice a "circle the wagons" attitude being taken. Would I be wrong in saying that mind engineering or behavioral control is being employed with this case of "closing ranks".

Did I just post in Lils without swearing,
Fcukn ya!
