You make that word 'moderated' sound like a surgical procedure <*< ....

I know Gordon is not a sprightly young chicken like some ........but have never seen or read a vexatious word about anything in any of his posts

If no one lives close by, possibly a member who knows his address should telephone the  :police:...and ask them to check on him

This is not meant as a silly suggestion  ............ Derek

I was being polite, he has been banned.
 
So you can't send him a PM.
 
However you can make contact via email direct.

Goodness  RAAArtyGunner..I did not mean to be rude.........I have just re read 100 or so posts from Regiment and found no trace or need for the blue pen that leads to the brig

If in fact Regiment has been moderated, I could only conclude it was for a valid reason.......having said this I would have hoped that some notification from the WEB moderators would have been appropriate for a member that has posted in excess of 1500 messages and is at the ripe age of 84 years here on this not so gracious earth [if this is the case]  >>:-(

I am sad to say that this once very excellent site has now become to politically correct.Good people are being banned,whilst certain others get away with saying what they llike about anyone,and remain here.
I remain a member at present,but like another good friend,very rarely comment any longer.
I sincerely hope the site can return to the more friendly and informative page that it once was.

There is sometimes traffic that only those on-line at the time will see. Not all moderated posts will be seen by everyone, if they are removed in the interim.
Applying logic, people will find no traces of posts that have been removed.

 :police:    THINK IT THROUGH,   RIGHT TO THE FULL STOP GENTLEMEN!    :police:

Suppose everyone posts anything they want.  Great, everyone's happy!
Mayhem then get sued for slander or defamation of character, etc. or even taken down by Nominet or other internet police body.
All these things ARE monitor by great power than me! That one guess how I know!!!!



Regiment is welcome to rejoin the Mayhem any time he wishes, we bear no grudges here,
ask anyone whom I've banned in the past!   %)


Re: Complaints against Traders, see the Forum rules, it   CLEARLY STATED  what's allowed and why.

Martin,
There is a feeling of not being equally moderated.
We have lost some members who have been members for a long time.
This seems to have accelerated recently and gives the impression that Mayhem has become more intolerant of only SOME members.
Please take notice of some of the above comments from non-contentious members.

I'm gonna sit on the fence and side with neither.

What I would ask is this. Was regiment made aware it was only a temporary ban?

If a moderator just sent him a message saying 'you are banned'  then it stands to reason he has no idea he could come back.

If he was told it was temporary, than he has decided not to return of his own free will.

Only Martin can issue a ban and he only does so with good reason. This sort of thing will never seem fair to some people as they are rather quick to rush to judgement without full knowledge of the facts. I have been a Mayhem moderator in the past and it is a thankless job as all you tend to get is ill considered flak as people 'have a right to their opinions'. Curiously that right is not always extended to other members who may take a different view.

I have been moderated myself on occasion and accepted that some people might have felt I was out of order in pursuing a particular hobby horse. I don't have an issue with that at all as I recognise that it was what I said that was objected to and there was no personal vendetta against me by the Martin or the moderators. OK, fair enough and no hard feelings on either side. Life goes on. However, certain people seem to take being moderated as a personal affront and that is the wrong attitude entirely.

I belong to a number of internet Forums and Mayhem is without doubt the most relaxed of the lot in what can be said. However there is no 'right' of free speech. Martin owns the Forum and sets the rules among which is the desire not to leave himself open to any form of legal action in respect of comments posted on here. Mayhem is NOT a platform for airing disputes with traders for example, no matter how hard done by you may feel. If you think you have been ripped off then you must take it up with the party concerned.

This from a man that does know!  Duely noted Bobster.   {:-{


If you feel unjustly treated ( on Mayhem! ), for whatvever reason, you take it up directly with me ...... I feel I'm a reasonable man and I hold my record, as moderator,  up for scrutiny.... ask anyone that has felt with the other side of me!


Martin.... trying to be fair for all Mayhemers.

Oh Blimey , here we go again...

Its Martins Forum , he can do what the  %%...likes.

Having seen some posts from people who have been banned recently and in the past, and then thrown their teddy's out of the pram, The Mods were completely correct.  ( Can not comment on Regiment  as I did not see his post and also did not know he had a Temporary Ban)
Some go to set up other sites saying we will not do what has been done on Mayhem, But then you read the rules of that Forum and it is completely the same if not worse.

Its a Forum, get over it.. Get Building and Move on..  Most people who have been banned come back on, some have been banned more than once and are back on.. 8) 8) 8)
