Hmmmm... me thinks something in here stinks. Four good threads in just about as many days have gone ~poof~! How could this be? I have been here for almost a year. I have a jam packed full respected by list. My posts are stimulating and sometimes even informative. I think that one of these new "moderators" of our furor Johan has something against me. Could it be censorship based on a disagreement with my opinions? God forbid that all you self proclaimed open minded touchy feely people out there would silence someone simply because you didnt' agree with him. Or is it that staring truth in the face is too much to bear for the unenlightened? I would tend to think the latter is true. I am not one to whine about having my posts deleted, I thrive on controversy. I would however like to invite the anonymous coward who would delete my arguments rather than respond to them come forward and give reasons for his behavior. Any one of you got the guts?

I hope the Administrator is actively holding the moderators accountable. If your post is deleted, you should recieve (or at least I have in the past) a notification stating WHY. If not, I would definately take this up with the cheif.
This is exactly what I was fearing with the introduction of new moderators. They should be on call to delete mainly the defamatory garbage that occasionally showed up like that racist one a couple weeks back. All the other stuff that is trivial should be left up to the senior moderators.

Wow, I must have missed the news Johan picked the new moderators. Oh well. Twotter, I agree 100% with you and I have noticed threads missing too. Particularly the thread about the gay threads... I really wanted to read replied to that but when I looked for it *poof* it couldn't be found & I don't know what grounds it could be deleted on. I think there has been a little too much censoring lately and it needs to be toned down. My $.02

One more note, we shouldn't blame this on Johan.
Earlier, Tsully and I were discussing why his topic had been deleted, and we both got deleted for it for no reason at all. So, we both ended up emailing Johan about it and he kindly brought our names right back. Johan isn't the type of person who deletes the posts he doesn't agree on. It's got to be one of the forum mods.

Notice, I did not blame it at all on Johan. My opinion of him is that he would prefer not to have to trifle with such silly things as what peole in here get upset with me about. I am quite certain it is a faceless coward hiding under his moderator cloak. Show yourself coward!

No new moderators have been added yet, there's still just me and Gary.
Twotterwrench, you've got a lot of posts removed as you cannot express yourself in a civilized manner, there's always lots of harsh language and personal attacks. Simple as that. At least that's why I have been removing some of your posts. This you should know as there's always automatic emails sent out explaining the reason for a particular deletion (your email address in your profile must naturally be working). If you learn to express your views in an non-flamebait fashion I promise you will have no further problems with the administrators of this forum, now or in the future.
The same goes for N400QX and Alpha 1 and The747Man, another bunch of known troublemakers. Things might change when the new moderators are introduced but personally I'm getting tired of moderating this forum for hours a day when my time is better spent elsewhere. Respect the rules of the forum or leave.
After all, you know why you post here, it's because we do a good job moderating the place. There's few forums on the net that can compete with us when it comes to high quality discussions, at least if you consider our large and diverse user-base.
And Alpha 1, I've heard that anti-US argument before, it's old. If you believe that, I suggest you leave and join some other forum where you think the moderators are more pro-US. No one is stopping you.
Working on the site from morning 'till night that's livin' alright (1997-2007)

I appreciate the reply Johan. However, other than a few exceptions where I feel I have been provoked, I don't see that I regularly behave as I have been accused. I shall attempt to be more careful of that in the future. I should dearly like to point out that the things you accuse me of are quite easily applied to those who often accuse me. I rarely suggest a post for deletion unless I find it vulgar. I would hope that the standards you apply to my posts could perhaps be applied to those who post in contrary opinion to mine as well. Good day sir.
