A quick 'can I remind you to stay on topic' would have been polite. I just took offence as I was not the first nor most frequent breaker of the law.




If it bothered me that much I wouldn't have bothered posting again! Smile

Oh dear...and I thought we were out to get the spammers by having moderators


and you were right... in part.
The reasons for having moderators on this new forum are manifold; among them is the removal of spam, but also to move off-topic thread/posts into the appropriate section, in order that this board can not only be used by those with a common interest who wish to enjoy an on-line social life, but also by others who want a resource where they can discuss/learn about the works of Robert Rankin unencumbered by other issues.

To that end, spam will simply be deleted, and any posts/threads in other sections that the moderators deem inappropriate will be moved into a more appropriate section. When this happens, no blame is apportioned or implied, and no offence should be taken, and nor should this be considered a reprimand or punishment in any way; it is simply a mechanism for allowing both the chat/banter/toot/camaraderie to continue, while maintaining the usefullness of the forum to casual passers-by and those who have no interest in cultivating online friendships or reading about other peoples'.

The only occurence of this type that may cause any form or reprimand (or further action) is if it becomes obvious that anyone is repeatedly deliberately derailing topics, or seeing how far they can push the rules before action is taken (and thus deliberately making work for the moderators), despite being aware of the rules. This would include intentionally including large off-topic content in posts with some relevant content.

Everyone is taking this much more seriously that it ever needed to be.


All I wanted was a little 'oops! sorry! You weren't the first!' from Tim and he did that pretty dang quick. Let's remember why we're here people!
