Obviously he and his posse are the ones making most of the post reports and they are not getting the result they hope for.

No, he let everyone know he had removed some posts. I don't know what the posts were because nothing had changed since my last look.

...is what I take issue with. There was no explanation of what that trolling was, nor, as far as I can remember, were any of my posts removed. If they were trolling, why weren't they removed? Geddit yet?

It's curious though, isn't it, I haven't backed down to any of the frankly pathetic attempts to bully me off the forum, I haven't changed anything in the content of my views or how I express them and yet now the insults seem to have resided a little. It is pretty much limited to the most hardened forum-bellends.

Admittedly, I don't bother responding to them, which is standard practice when dealing with trolls (do not feed them ), but I did have a little experiment with reporting some of the ones that I knew would be sanctioned if I had made them. I'm pretty sure that, even you, Dr M, know what the outcome was.

Again, I'm not personally affronted by any of this, I'm just a big disappointed with the depth of bad-faith bulls*** I have to wade through here.

Game playing apart, you know it as well as I do.

No moderation. Why don't you and your "even handed" buddies take a vacation for awhile.

It gets to a point where you see some posters banned and not others.

No, I don't gettit yet.
We're any of your posts removed - your above is vague.
Simple yes or no is fine.

How would I know this?
You're new here, this is only our second interaction - you know nothing about me, how would know what I know?
Although, I do know about game playing - I've seen it before.

Joachim wasn't banned. You even said that the way it was handled was fair.
So, again - how do you know what infractions others got?

Like u see, there is no moderation here now. You see, those nasty mods are doing their jobs just fine, just like in the Clinic.

But that's what we're talking about - that's what you responded to.

So, you have no idea what sanctions/infractions others get - your basis is on bans.

Great - give us first 5 examples that you know.
