I still think somebody with influence has complained, hence why after 8 months of referring to various threads and posters with very little interference we now have the current request from the mods, probably via their bosses at Haymarket, or somebody up on high.
Hammer, meet nail.
As per the Scott A thread.

All good for the site traffic, until...

Exactly.

Haphazard moderation (to say the least).

Bizarre "rules"

PH moderation at its best, made up as they go along it would appear.

Yeah, a thumbnail.

Just tone down the level of spite please, that's all we ask.
So constant homophobia, sexism, racism and the like is fine. But mocking those threads isn't.

Got it.

Good point that. You don't have to look very hard at all to find SWT, stupid bint, gheyer & so on round here. Random drive by mod is drive by. And random.

Mods don't read every post on every thread.

Why do you think the news AMD politics subforum is about as credible as a David Icke forum? Dissent is frowned upon. Only middle England is acceptable. That is the demographic they are chasing. That is the demographic that is protected.
I do wonder how much that part of the forum reflects the general readership of the website. Though perhaps some of the people on it think they are the website.

A fairly regular excuse when it comes to criticism of moderation.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense realises that mods don't read every thread. And likewise no-one can expect them to read every post, But to suggest mods have been unaware of an 80 page thread in which at least one poster has been banned is pushing things a little.

Lets keep it simple, shall we.

Posting rule #1 on PH talks about not posting stuff that any reasonable person would find offensive, annoying or upsetting.

What's happened on this thread is getting too personal; and is putting people off posting on PH, in fear of getting slagged off in here for whatever reason.

It's pretty simple. Drop the personal aspect, or we'll just lock the thread. Not sure why we should have a little corner of PH slagging off people posting on PH.

And I'm not getting into any form of debate over it. Just accept it or not. And any idiot that posts garbage and incorrect crap about mods will be banned from the thread. It's a tough enough and time consuming activity as it stands without morons shouting for their rights, etc, etc sleep

If you don't like it, then move on.

Now play good please.

A polite notice.

Fine, I'll stay, wouldn't want to walk past those tts near the door. I'd be unable to help myself and call them bell ends to their faces when I left.

Kinky, genuine question:

Why have you suddenly taken such an interest in this thread when there are clearly others where members are far more directly rude, abusive and offensive towards others?
