I’ve noticed in several threads in the Open Forum, someone is going in and deleting posts. Not floundering them. Just deleting them. No reason given. No notice given to the posters.
I assume this is because the Deleter feels the posts are not relevant to the discussion.
But come on, I think some thought needs to be given to the process. How about a “stay on target” post by a moderator? Something less intrusive? Because it really is annoying to see one’s posts wiped out at someone’s whim. And I don’t think it’s the moderators job to determine exactly which posts make up the heart and soul of a thread.
I also noticed some excellent threads like the “What is your favorite condiment” being moved. I think it was in the Open Forum as well.
It’s gotten to the point that I hesitate to post or start a thread, since the Deleter might just hop in and wipe that out as well!
Moderating is a good thing, but is it going too far? (For the record, I’ve noticed that this extremist moderating is mostly happening in the Open Forum.)
By the way, PLEASE do not quote to me from the Book of Forumosa or give me a line about “You must listen to Mr. Moderator”. I would like a decent answer this time, please.
