I think you'll find that most Complaints Dept threads are fairly light on moderation. In the past I've been concerned about how it would look to heavily moderate a thread complaining about moderation. As a result, Complaints Dept posts are given a bit more leeway.

I'll have to think about revisiting that decision.

Yeah, like that'll happen - the other ongoing complaint thread proves that they are both on the "right side" of the very biased moderation here and don't need to hold back like everyone else does.
as if I've never been moderated


Never said that - it just takes a lot more for you and those on "your side" to get moderated than others, and your comments on that thread and your comment here prove that. "Want a cookie?" the way you said it is most definitely disruptive, insulting, and adds literally nothing to the conversation, yet here it remains, even after Octavian has read the thread.

It's unfair of you not to give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she just happens to have a surplus of havreflarn.

I find that hard to believe. They almost never nuke content without cause. This was especially true before the "nuke offending posts" policy was in place.


I had to go back into my records to figure out what this was in reference to.

In this case it was because his "form of civil disobedience" was to edit his session reports to delete all the content and replace it with a link promoting another site.


That's amazing. I think that makes "Previously, the moderators removed all of my session reports after I employed a form of "civil disobedience" the single most disingenuous sentence I've read on BGG. And there has been some stiff competition.
Yeah, attributing the loss of your session reports to moderation, when in fact you removed them and replaced them with links, is entirely false. You (ermine, not Grant) removed them. BGG just deleted links, not your session reports.

It’s especially disingenuous to give a “lost” word count. The posts you removed yourself might have been 900,000 but after you edited them and replaced them with links that was no longer true. What got deleted wasn’t anywhere near that number, and as they were links elsewhere, the reality is zero words of your sessions were removed by BGG.

I get moderated and have my posts deleted all the time. Sorry it hasn't been often enough for you liking. //shrug//

tbh, I figured mine would have red x'ed and/or nuked by a mod by now but still, it needed to be said. so, um... why haven't you red x'ed it yet?
I actually did.

By collective will power? Unlikely. OP can change it though, if they so choose.

Or you can appeal to an admin.

I've had problems with Desiree's and Grant's comments before, but I actually don't see a problem with those two. Maybe I'm under sensitive?

It's probably me.

Pete (is probably overly sensitive to these sorts of things)

If you would kindly drop me a note indicating how I can more efficiently offend you, I will make sure this grievous oversight isn't repeated.

I didn't have a problem with those posts myself, honestly, but I have seen many posts that are not as bad as those get moderated in the past here.

Until recently, you wouldn't necessarily know. Moderation was privately handled, and could for example have resulted in x days posting suspension for the user. But there'd be no call-out of the user in the thread, and posts weren't removed like now. And this could happen with collapsed (red-flagged) and non-collapsed posts - flagging just alerts a mod, not guarentees moderation.

I'm talking about posts I've explicitly seen that have then been deleted (in the new paradigm) as well as posts that I know for a fact were moderated in the past. Even though it is "private", people still do talk.

Sorry, I misread you - I thought you were saying you'd seen posts in the past that should've been moderated, but weren't.
