Default POLITE REQUEST

Why are all posts related to the death of Margaret (Barnoness) Thatcher being moved? That is a very simple question, however, I expect a very complicated answer, or no answer at all! - Over to you Sue!

Mmmm, 'Vague Possibilities' from a Moderator? What have you been told to say? - Or can anyone give a straight answer to the question?

Have a read of what it says on the outside of the 'Take it Outside' forum "Please keep all political, religious and other controversial topics in here."

Surely that rule would cease all conversation? - Especially messages relating (negatively) to Islam, etc. I didn't see that one in the BE Book Of Rules! What is the Policy? - Make it up as you go along, for fear of Litigation? - Jeez!

It's not a rule but it is what's happening, as this is a Brit expat site there will undoubtedly have been a lot of threads. Now they're all in one place.

Your response speaks volumes! A British Expatriate Site run by Americans! - You fell for that one of course?

Maybe we don't want to talk to someone in Canada about it?? Why shift a thread out of our forum? So now the rest of BE are commenting on it and we are not. Well Done Mike.

Another thread moved...are you trying to turn people away from this site?

I'm struggling to see how you apply the rules, it certainly does not look consistent.

Personally, I can't be arsed to go into the other discussion forums.

We should be able to talk about who we want Mike. It is not up to you to decide..............People are leaving here in droves, if you have not noticed and many a regular not bothering and it is all because of you over moderating and deciding what is best. It worked perfectly well before you came along.

You are ruining it, time to realise its a forum and you are not back in the RAF.
