Moderation discussions – split from ‘Eh up, we're on telly!’

"Rubbish" posting
Some people think it is amusing to post in "rubbish" language... i.e. using odd characters instead of letters or even letters in no particular order. This is not permitted.

let me read a definition of a rubbish language if there is  one
is this a rubbish language? العمه ميريام

Re: Eh up, we're on telly!

for starters you need to fix things that will prevent paying customers posts from being deleted  here by wacko's
and also prevent them from leaving their own  messages in their place

Old Jim,
I could read Giro's post perfectly. It was simply the text of JoJo's post written upside down and was perfectly readable by most people, and thought it to be a fine post to leave on the forum.

Not by me or the person who reported it and if, as you say, it was just a repeat of JoJo's post upside down what was the point of doing it as it contributed absolutely nothing to the topic.

These are usually caused by discussions turning into serious arguments as mentioned above. Please think before posting anything that would be defined as this sort of attack. For example "Username is an idiot" Personal attacks, including those in personal forum messages or

Re: Eh up, we're on telly!

Giro,
I personally think your post was OK, but I am not a moderator.
I think the moderators do a very difficult and unrewarded job, and on the whole I think they carry out that job with mostly good judgement. I am happy to challenge the deleting of your post, as the mods are only human and do make mistakes. However please don't go off on a crusade!!!  If you start ranting and moaning, and foaming at the mouth, you will diminish your case, and no one will be able to help you.

It's worth bearing in mind that the moderators are not Plusnet staff, whilst I understand that you're annoyed at one of your posts being removed, posting entirely in upside down text wasn't adding much to the conversation and would be more suited to the chit chat forum.
Sorry if you feel like the mods have done something incorrect, however I back their decision as the job they do is very hard and they do it voluntarily.

Giro,
I'm not sure what you'd like us to apologise for? If I've missed something in this thread or elsewhere please let me know.

I haven't seen these posts so couldn't comment, however if they are on this forum then you should report the posts to the moderators so they can deal with them and speak to the people who posted it.

now my postings are being removed

Your post was removed as it contravened the forum rules, anyone else's post would have been removed in the same manner.
Sorry that you feel I'm playing daft games, I assure you I'm not and as I mentioned above if you can give me a link to where you've been called those things I'll pass the information on to the moderators to deal with.

Re: Eh up, we're on telly!

Well, I don't see anything that either Plusnet  need to apologise for, but perhaps that's me just being obtuse?
The post was removed as it contravened the forum rules, and was adding nothing to the discussion.  If you're waiting for an apology from Plusnet then it will be a long wait - the decision to remove your post was made by the moderators, and in my opinion was the correct decision.  Plusnet were not involved in that decision making process at all.
However, if you're wanting to get Otelo involved, I'm sure that they will be more than accommodating.  If you'd like to draw their attention to the link:rules, and the contact details of the moderators then we'll be more than happy to service any requests for information that they might have.
