    When I read a thread, do I know if someone has been banned from it?

    If someone is banned from a thread when nobody is around, does it make a sound LOL? Seriously, though, isn't there a little 'deleted posts' icon next to the thread title?

    That is the expression of a man whose finger just poked through the paper...

    Good idea Sean. Too many good threads have been derailed.

    I think that's pretty bad, because that way it could be used for censorship. I know that former member Jorge has been banned from this site, and I know that Marko is on restricted access. I may or may not agree with these decisions, but at least I know what's going on. Nobody would know, however, if administrators abused the new facility to prevent certain members from voicing their opinion on certain topics.

    All opinions are welcome. It's when those opinions are not opinions but are baiting, trolling and hostile comments specifically designed to derail a thread and upset people. The community has entrusted myself and the moderators to know when that happens and put a stop to it. I think we've earned a lot of trust in our judgments over the years. If our past actions cause you concern then feel free to contact me via PM and I can discuss the specifics on any of those situations -most of which are kept out of the public domain..

    I am well aware how censorship can affect forum communities, it can literally kill a community. We try pretty hard not to touch the content but there is a specific atmosphere we try to maintain within apug and that is where the mod team and mod tools come into play..

    There were indeed cases where I disagreed with the way you and other moderators handled certain threads. Beginning from now, I will have fewer opportunity to disagree, because I won't know when moderation bans certain members.
