    [ad hominem remark deleted: moderator Pendragon]

    I thought moderators had to be fair and neutral in order to do their duty.

    Why is Ophiolite allowed to be a moderator when he is so obviously biased and is often nasty and insulting?
    You had to ask?

    I thought moderators had to be fair and neutral in order to do their duty.
    Who do you know that is fair and neutral?

    To Selene: whatever you're trying to achieve it's not going to work. Your comments are not constructive and contain no usable information. Your ad hominem remark is deleted, if you post similar threads in the future it will be considered spam and will be trashed.

    A general remark: Feedback about the moderation policy is always welcome. We are not infallible and we appreciate constructive feedback.

    For feedback to be useful it should come in either of two forms:
    - a pm with specific examples of moderator interventions which you disagree with
    - a thread in 'Site Feedback' with general remarks about the moderation policy (for example if it's too strict or too lenient in general, or if certain types of interventions are needed)

    I know this message is lost on Selene, but I post it anyway to make sure that people who do have constructive feedback feel comfortable to post or pm it.

    As for leaving - I thought I would ask this final question

    It is something which has always puzzled me.

    As for being banned -

    Why should I be banned for asking a simple question about something which has genuinely puzzled me since joining the forum, or is this forum synonymous with Chinese politics where we are only allowed to ask certain questions which do not upset the state?

    As for the Ad Hominem remark about 'Ophiolite obviously being biased and resorting to nastiness and insults' and it's deletion -

    This action in itself has answered the above question.

    Ophiolite is allowed to resort to Ad Hominem and insults but his comments are never deleted or objected to by the moderators because he is a moderator

    Which is another reason I am leaving the forum.

    Double standards, biased, prejudice and selective moderation which isn't neutral or fair

    And the obvious arse-licking and creeping by the other members towards the moderation are making me nauseous.

    If you are banned it is for making repeated ad hominem remarks and for posting spam. Yes, a post that has no useful substance and is repeated several times against warnings is spam by any reasonable definition.

    Ophiolite is allowed to resort to Ad Hominem and insults but his comments are never deleted or objected to by the moderators because he is a moderator
    You have failed to present examples by pm, even though I asked you for it at several occasions.

    And the obvious arse-licking and creeping by the other members towards the moderation are making me nauseous.
    I have never noticed that, which means that either it doesnt exist or it has no effect.

    I have always answered your claims as reasonable as I could, and frankly it took me way too much of my scarce time. So I wont reply to you again unless you post something constructive.

    If you didn't have such a blind spot, you would see it for yourself
