Sas i agree some posters were going over the top, but the admin in question had vendettas against certain poster (me for one) and would remove posts for fun.
I have never had any problem with Robs way when he asks you to delete an offending post if he doesn't find it suitable, he has asked me once a long time ago, i thought about it then deleted it myself.
259 took things personal from years back and could not wait to wield his axe, not a fair and reasonable way of doing the job IMHO. If he found anything out of order in my posts he should have said so and given me a chance to edit them.

The problem was, rob, the goalposts moved and no-one mentioned it. Out of the blue posts were removed and posters banned for reasons unknown and when the admin was asked why, no answer was given. Just arrogant responses.

If people had been warned in advance then maybe posts wouldn`t have had to be removed and people not banned which annoyed many users.

THE STRIKE WAS A JOKE FFS. WHOOOOOOOSSSHHHHH

Go and look at the posts. It was a big fcuking joke, taking the pi$$ out of eachother and the Thatcher years.

The absolute irony of people taking this serious and then calling Rids a big baby.

Point is Rob I appreciate you cannot be seen to undermine Borolad. That would be ridiculous and would probably leave you an admin person down.

But, people's posts were removed as they put them up and at one point everything Rids posted was immediately taken down for no good reason. Literally 6 or 7 threads in 10 minutes. Perhaps Borolad was just taking the micky I dont know.

I was not banned and only had one post removed and that was fair given its sexual connotations. But honestly, whilst some posts were rightly removed and posters banned in some cases there were clear examples of admin being draconian and quite frankly unfair too.

At one point Rob I think I even said I couldn't wait for you to come back and I can't really stand you. [:D]

I never did post it on here Space_Face. As Rob said, it was c'd and p'd on here from another forum.

And what I said was most definitely not racist. Offensive to Muslims, most definitely, but absolutely not racist. Muslim is a religion, not a race. I'm the least racist person you could ever wish to meet.

As I said, I'm not denying it was offensive. I exploded when I read that story because 9/11 is a deeply personal thing for me. Please don't take that as me offering excuses for what I wrote because I won't do that and I hold my hands up to what I said and I'm not trying to hide from it.

I know that Cogeur_le_Conq will probably hate me forever for it and I wish I hadn't offended him so badly.

Again, for what it's worth - Steve's original post was not racist. The general test of racism is if it includes something that suggest the superiority of one race over another - Steve didn't.

Whether his post was offensive to Muslims or not - it was just a matter of opinion. Nothing more, nothing less.

It was certainly (to my mind anyway) far less offensive and controversial than the recent 'Why do people hate Jews" thread or whatever it was called which happily hung around for days.

Personally I disagreed with Steve's post - but that is what this forum is about (or at least used to be) - debate.

RIDSDALE SPEAKS OUT.

Rob has twisted the truth or has been misinformed by Borolad. Here's really what Ridsdale thinks.

"Just to clear a few things up.


In recent weeks a number of posters (not myself) were banned for the most frivolous of reasons.
And a lot of threads were suddenly being deleted by new admin, borolad. His reason he said was that Rob
had engaged him to "clean things up" while Rob was in SA. Which strikes me as gutless of Rob.

I jokingly called for a day of action, this was taken up by others who started posting on the snooker forum
and we had a day of good humoured fun. The only ones who took this seriously were sas and a few other dullards.

Soon after I found my threads were being deleted as I posted them, even though they in no way broke any 'terms and conditions'. and one thread appeared to have been altered. And then I was banned.
As I no longer had control of what I posted, I emailed and asked for the account to be deleted.

Borolad justified my banning saying that I had threatened Robs business, WTF? And I should apologise,
which I had no intention of doing.

The fact is that borolads claim to fame is making pop porn of dubious morality and legality, and being a doorman.

Now, most doormen do the job because it is extra cash. and some doormen do the job because it gives them a bit of power, and a chance to assault people in safety. I think I know which category borolad fits in to.

I posted on fansonline before Rob was involved. A messageboard should be able to run without the sort of
ham fisted admin he now 'employs'.

Thanks to those who supported me!"

Ok, so why don't you ban the people who did post it on this forum?

Personally I think your being played the fool Rob. If people have a problem with other message boards why don't they sort it out themselves instead of bringing it to yoru doorstep, when it's nothing to do with you?

They talk tough but did nothing about it other than copy and paste it here and then hide behind you.

Ridsdale's not in prison. He's in a self imposed exile. Like when Mother Theresa boarded herself up in the H Blocks, and painted the walls with Ghandi's clarts. A bit like that anyroad.

Hey Mark - I emailed you backlast night saying that your ban was being lifted.

ridsdale - posted on here before I was involved. Is that a re-write of history I set the board up in 2000. Was absent for 4 months a couple of years ago when Steve took over.

Anyway, ridders will be delighted by his level of support but the fact remains he asked to be deleted. He hasn't even asked to be reinstated.

He asked to be deleted because Borolad259 was censoring his posts and changing his posts. Something you continue to ignore. He did absolutely nothing wrong, other than question the poor moderation of an angry middle aged man.

He had to ask for it to be deleted sas because someone was in his account making posts under his name and changing posts he had made.

Like GK says, you keep ignoring the reason he asked for the deletion which has been stated on this very thread at least twice.

Steve ordered the site he didn't physically build it. I can see more info in my admin than the other admin people and can also ask the technician that built and maintains the sites for extra info if I wish to. So I can get to see exactly what has been edited and what hasn't if I wish to. Usually I find life is too short for such fascinating diversions.

Quick question while you're here borolad - when you re-militarised the Rhineland in 1935, was it some kind of master plan or did you just keep winging it until someone finally objected after the Poland invasion?

"But you built this website so you are in a position to say if rob is telling the truth or not."

Since I gave up my admin rights, a lot of things have changed and that is obviously a function that was introduced after my time.

No way is Ridsdale making up what he said but I trust Rob at his word, always.

Make of that what you want.

Only_Me Posted on 29/06/2010 22:03

Ok here's a couple of points, or maybe several.


" Sounds like someone who doesn't realise I can have a look in admin and see two things if a post has been edited by someone else secondly if it has been posted by their normal computer or not."

" So I can get to see exactly what has been edited and what hasn't if I wish to. "

So for how long precisely can you see threads or posts that have been altered or deleted?
Bear in mind, that when you try to go back several pages on here, it barely goes back as far as a week. Are they kept on your server for longer? again bearing in mind, that this all went on when you were away and would hardly spend your time trawling the board to see what was going on, or taken off, as the case maybe.
Things weren't too bad last week, or should we say, as far back as the 'next page' option will go but the week before was ludicrous, with bannings and deletions coming thick and fast.
Do you still have access to all those threads and posts?
Have you read through any of them to check for violations of the t&c's?

When questioned about bannings, borolads stock quote became "check the t&c's on your way back in"! In other words, those just enquiring like Benny Santini were banned.
Can you still see Benny's thread?
As I said to borolad at the time, he was just setting people up to fail, as if they didn't understand why they were banned the first time, they would hardly know why when they were subsequently banned again for repeating the same mistake. If indeed any mistake had been made to begin with, which in some cases is highly dubious.
It would have taken no effort on the part of borolad to have just said you breeched the terms of the t&c's because you used this word, or that word, or whatever but he steadfastly refused to do so. It caused a bit of bad feeling to be honest.
I have seen posts of yours before when someone has overstepped the mark and you have taken the time to bother explaining why you think a poster is in the wrong. That is fair enough and is good admin, however, borolad seemed to go out of his way to avoid any explanation which was really quite unfair imo.





" That makes it tricky for me to act Cog because he didn't actually say those remarks on this forum. "

Does this mean we can c&p any old rot onto here, containing various 'isms' and yet because it's not been directly written on here, it doesn't matter?
I'm not getting at anyone in particular, or any particular thread, just in general, it just seems an odd way of dealing with emotive subjects.
