    Default Ethical moderation

    dear members,
    i have run into some disagreement with this forum admin and i want to share the matter in detail with you
    here goes the transcript of our messages:

    i want to report 2 issues:

    1) i have created an user account 'icq78354419' but it is not working
    it is also available for grab at new user registration menu, strange
    it is not working even i register for another time

    2) you are taking more time for approving posts

    Your posts went into moderation because there were links in your posts. Having an email id or other forms of ID is not allowed here and such ids are normally deleted. Whoever deleted your id didint notice that you had posts under that id.

    I have approved your post.

    2 things again:

    1) you delete user account if it indicates personal references like emails or phone numbers
    what harm will it do anyway? users can always exchange personal info through private messages

    2) URLs are meant for reference and better representation of our problem
    no sense in copy /paste all text from other website
    you need to rethink this policy mr.admin

    I am not here to argue with you. Exchange whatever you like in personal messages.

    Older members are able to post links and new members are not allowed to do that to keep spam at bay.

    1) you should communicate at least while deleting my account

    2) what for moderation is
    posts of newer members are not posted right away and they can always be rejected if spam is found

    somehow i'm not comfortable here. do me a favor
    remover this account also

    Thats what a spammer feels like when his/her link doesnt sneak through. This is what these checks are in place for. You need to get better at your low paying seo job I guess

    i wonder why did you remove 2nd post written by mr. krishnan in the thread http://www.indiabroadband.net/bsnl-b...dsl-modem.html
    i remember he was some 190 posts old and he still not qualified to post an informative URL?
    1st you removed URL from his post and later you deleted his post completely

    If the link he posted was misleading or if you believe it was wrong, you can say so in another post but you tried to impose your authority as an administrator to hurt forum userís right of expression and right of information

    This is not a college or a court room to judge what is wrong and what is right
    All users have got freedom to express their opinions and judge right from wrong themselves

    A post deserves deletion only when it is not relevant to the thread (spam) or it contains flaming or illegal content

    you have overstepped a fine line of moderation

    Policy is not what you do at your will. We come here to share information in a meaningful manner. If your blog is not conductive enough, we go elsewhere. We donít want your freaky and psychotic moderation

    Now let me assure you that my low paying seo job has been great and I sincerely do hope you will get over your erectile dysfunction soon and run this forum transparently
    If itís not your ED, you canít be so judgmental and stubborn

    i'm putting up all these messages we have exchanged in a poll to gather user opinion in suggestions and complaints section
    let it continue if you are so confident of what you have done is right

    and if you want to respond in this matter, please post reply there instead of sending private messages

    dear fellow members, i want to know your opinion through a poll and please indicate your response
    option-1> admin has done right thing
    option-2> admin has overstepped his authority

    The second post was edited first to remove the link and later on I realized that the text was just copy paste from the page that link pointed to so had to be removed. It was incorrect information from a lousy ehow page created by someone who had no clue what he/she is talking about.
