To be honest, with 73 posts on the subject and 6000 views, I think the point has been made. We're probably now in danger of over-egging the pudding.
My view is that if a response is to be made, I'll happily wait a few days to see it. If nothing happens, I can then make my mind up about further involvement.

I totally agree we should not get personal!

But you have posted a few times your last post included that with all these internet sites hits are all important for advertising revenue and hence the value of the site.

We all know of one very very long thread where abuse of innocent people myself included was allowed and blind eyes were turned from the sites code of conduct obviously to generate site hits and massive hits at that!

This is a Rumor site and rumor has it that the thread was closed down by external legal threats and not what we were told!

So you have probably hit the nail on the head re no advertising is bad advertising and site hits

Personally I think it is a great site with wonderful contributors and moderators just needs a bit of tweaking

Guys, the best way to deal with any 'issues' is to contact Internet Brands, the owners of PPRuNe.

Internet Brands, Inc. : Contact Us

Failing that, we have CleeIB here on the forum who I'm sure would listen to any GENUINE problems anyone may have with strange goings on etc.

http://www.pprune.org/members/352424-cleeib

Clee is PPRuNe admin for Internet brands.

As I'm sure you are aware, Internet Brands have numerous sites to look after, not just this one. A PM to CleeIB would not be a bad thing, or an e-mail to them.

I'm fairly sure they are aware of certain issues with the forum, other peoples input may help them better PPRuNe - worth a try.

Done.

I really hope Towers boxes clever on this one and backs off to quickly gets G reinstated in the forums albeit not as a mod! I am sure he would prefer the freedom of being independent anyway!

Life is really too short for all these petty meaningless squabbles! Anything less would be a negative move considering the strong feelings of many of its long standing and respected members.

The alert amongst us will notice many regular and respected contributors are biding their silence over this issue.

I wouldn't consider myself a long-term member who's biding my silence, and over the past few weeks I've been away and reading the forum infrequently enough that I can't imagine what thread could have led to Genghis' suspension. However, I've been round for long enough to have thoroughly appreciated his depth of knowledge and valuable and good humoured contributions to the forum. I hope that we'll see this cleared up sooner rather than later.

I also feel that disclosing somebody's name on a forum is a breach of trust. I value the ability to discuss issues openly and anonymously on internet fora without fearing that details of my personal life may become available to my colleagues and patients, and I would choose to leave any forum where a poster's anonymity is liable to be broken at the whim of a single moderator, if this is indeed what has happened.

As an infrequent poster but one who has met GTE in real life so to speak and who has valued his contributions I would like to say that he is a top chap, full of useful info; albeit a lot younger than I thought he would be (Ghengis the Toddler sprang to mind when I met him) and I hope he is reinstated here in his full capacities as engineer and pilot at large.

Sadly I missed the fracas that led to his dismissal so am unable to comment on the validity of it. I'm sure though that common sense, and meaningful intercourse with the site owners and advertisers will see a return to the status quo that we all feel comfortable with.

Genghis is one of the (fairly) few contributors who make reading PPRuNe a valuable learning experience. I sincerely hope that he will be back soon.

Cue for a song?

Just to add my name as one of those who would miss Ghengis and his knowledgeable posts. Have no idea what the stoush is about, but hope it's quickly sorted and we see his return.

I notice with appreciation that at least some of Genghis' posts have been returned to being visible. Though I am unaware of Genghis' present relationship to PPRuNe, the quiet return of so much of his previous effort is a good step forward.
