Your statement that "the moderators" should have culled that out....
firstly, the comment in and of itself was a bit "out there", but did not make any mention of politics.
secondly, if "the moderators" deleted every post that "might be" out of order, the integrity of the threads would dissolve. The members would get a bit aggravated, and the forum's purpose would deteriorate.
thirdly, "the moderators" have enough to do WITHOUT PAY, just keeping the "trash spam" and truly out of order things cleaned up.
I hope you continue to use your forum, we the "managers" all try to keep a clean house where our young daughters won't be appalled at something they see.
But, there is also an obligation from the members to not make a mountain out of a mole hill.
And truthfully? I was going to delete that post "just on principle" until I noticed that it had already been quoted and defended by the membership.
Now I can't, so this post saying why I can't.
and finally, there are 24 hours in a forum's day.
There are only 2 admins in Ireland, and 4 moderators stateside spread across 2 times zones, soon to be all in "central time zone".
We can't catch them all, but we try to read everything. Try that sometime, just set down and ready every single post there is on this forum. I betcha you never do that on your own. But, we have to trying to "keep it clean".
