Red face Moderators.

Will the particular mod that keeps thread banning me please make themselves known. I have Questions as to why they only remove what suits them, and leave other remarks on thread.
I'm not all that concerned about this particular event, but it is beginning to show a biased trend.
PM is fine.

Yes some/one of the Moderators seems to be taking liberty with regards to Policing their personal opinions.

The Terms of Use are HERE.

Now I have just been banned from a thread with Wizard of Auz for some comical banter, for apparently "being childish", where is " being childish" outlawed within the terms of use ?. Who did I defame, other than Wiz's nanna ?.

Which moderator is such a prude ?.

If this is the way PPRUNE is to continue, no fun, well you can count me out, please ban me permanently and I'll find another site that is moderated by less fragile ego's.

Over and probably out.................

As of about two months ago I have had a couple of posts removed that were in no way offensive or defamatory. They were both humerous posts...(or attempts at it). I wonder if there is a new Mod who thinks this is all very very serious business with no place for humour. Sad day if thats the case.

There's another light aircraft forum out there where you can be banned forever without even making a post! Seems that if you have the wrong company name in front of the .com.au or whatever you get banned straight away.

PPRune you're doing it right 98% of the time

(Note this post has nothing to do with the thread with regard to Wiz's comments)

ha framer, first time i have seen mention of this place being 'serious'

first time i heard about pprune was because of its forums filled with bollocks for readers amusement which is a pure magnet for me.

oh well. theres always one.

Bizarre!

I mentioned the name Pionair in response to a post, and it was deleted by the mods.

Only my post. No one else's!

It's too funny for words.

Even funnier, I'm posting this knowing only I can see my post because Tailskid set things up so JM posts and no-one but JM sees the post.

Answer to the questions on this thread - TW is the problem, and won't be able to recognise it because he is firmly embedded in the khyber of a certain well known Oz entrepreneur. No name, no pack drill, no clues.

Good on yer, Bob.

Same thing happened to me in the M*****R thread banned until the 3rd at 11pm for being 'childish'

Looks like one of the mods discovered a new button to play with

I was banned from one of the Barwon heads threads for stating the obvious....... and the banning was for , and I quote, " to save me from the horror of it all".
You would think the thread would have been locked for being the same as all the others........... self serving tripe written by four people with five user names each....... but nah...... I got banned for calling them on it. Maybe your right and they have a new button. otherwise the childish posts button would have been used when those people were making veiled threats, calling people names and making up stupid poems about their opposition in the courts and air.

The D&G Mods leave some of the other forum mods for dead in the reasonable, and more importantly, consistency stakes.

I know they can be confusing and frustrating but be nice to what we've got and DO NOT encourage input from any foreigners. You know the sort I mean Wiz (just think paintings)

I doubt some of the PPP's would survive in the D&G environment anyway.

Perhaps try to e-m or PM the Aussie Mod's.

hey 'Wiz' me mate forget trying to understand a certain Mod, it's like trying to nail jelly to a tree!!! I'm their biggest threat I believe, (serial thread drifter, sheeeeezzto think ya get less for murder!) & with being threatened with tactics that would rival Hitlers filth I was flawed that we live under such tyranny (chk spelling please spelling police)here within a public forum yr posts probably are 'red flagged' like mine

Still as we know there is another more friendly forum just over the road but most come in here for the spirited debates, just not the heavy handed school principals rules that's enforced with an iron fist!

So for now 'wiz' you have 'friends' in here, unlike a certain Mod, see ya on da udder side


Wmk2, or is that 3?

No, not a Mod, but from the same country. PPommyP's.

I know we used to be able to ring the Woomera's whenever we wanted, there is still one number I can give you if you feel inclined.

If any of you fellow PPRuNers think our D&G Mod's are bad, have a look at any of the UK centric forums and you will see what bad really is. PPP's

I took two of your posts out "of public view" in the M@cair thread. (No, they are not deleted - I can see them, you can't.)

Here is your two posts:

"Why do people spit when they talk and are angry?"
"Breaking news - Qantas buy ******, Skywest and Airnorth!"
I'm yet to make any sense at all of your first post.

As to your second post, you may find it amusing that your post may well give false hope to over 200 desperate staff about to be terminated, probably without their financial entitlements. I don't share your sense of sick humour!

I feel for those staff about to be out of work, many of whom are just starting their career in aviation, cut short for reasons totally beyond their control, in a recession and rising unemployment.

Those staff are real people with families, kids, mortgages, financial commitments - and you see fit and amusing to give them false hope and make fun of their predicament!

Yes, after two senseless, thoughtless posts in the same thread I was so p!ssed off that I thread banned you from that thread until February 3.

You were extremely lucky to have got away with only a few days!!!

I would be surprised if the vast majority of our PPRuNe Users, knowing the facts and after consideration, would not support my action.

I don't know anything about the the other "complaints" and am too tired to check tonight. I'll look tomorrow.

With over a quarter million registered users and growing by the day, and over a million page "hits" per day, I guess we must be doing something right!

Moderating is a very subjective - and thankless - task and despite the many hours each Mod spends each day reading posts on PPRuNe, we obviously never get it right in the opinion of a small minority - for which I make no apology!

Tail Wheel

P.S. OK. Found some of the posts referred to in the Convair 580 thread. I'll check with that Mod in a day or two when he's back on deck.
