I metioned the fact that insurance fronting was illegal as one of the Mods
was quite proud she was doing it. I'll tell her insurance company when I
can be arsed. GGMAD was the name, all over the internet.
I commented on the selfish use of space on site of the same Mod and her pal
in another caravan. Got a caution for this. WTF???
Next I mentioned, after a period of a few weeks that cencorship was rife
on this forum (caravanning4u) and had my post deleted. mentioned it again
to check I hadn't deleted it myself and was met with a message

"You have been banned for the following reason:
Causing trouble on the forum

Date the ban will be lifted: Never"

No one even saw my message !!! LOL!!!

And?

I don't know the forum you mention, never will, 'cos IMHO they're
normally run by up-tight feckwits with their own agendas and for their
mates to use. Anyone with different views either assimilates or goes
away .. they make you disappear!

No, I ain't paranoid ..

I see what you are saying about censorship, the site it self look like
it is funded via affilate marketing links and the site owner may wish
to keep his domain sweet smelling to potential shoppers.

But please explain the original post in laymans words as I am
intriged.

All web forums are moderated, censored can be a bit of a strong word but it
does depend on the forum. If you want to be able to say anything usenet is
about the only place but make sure your identity is well hidden. However
some forums have a much lower acceptance of things than others and
unfortunately the one mentioned won't engage in any discussion with the
posted, its easier just to ban them. You could always try and sign on with a
new user name. Some forums watch IP addresses some don't.

So just turn the router off and back on again to renew the IP, most of
which for home use, are dynamic and change at every reset.

If you're getting really paranoid, regularly clear cookies and cache
and renew passwords/logon names before trying to log back on forums.

Guys i have been barred from more forums than i can count its widely
known that forum owners generally pander to a few mods [their mates
generally] wishes and try to keep their sponsors happy, pushing their
goods/services inordinately over others [usually better/cheaper] but
thats the beast that is freedom of speech im involved in Volkswagen
communities so i simply started my own we are in a matter of months no
2 [the original in the UK in my field has 10x the membership we have
however if you look at the user count daily its the same 200 odd so in
% terms we are much the same, and they are only no 1 by virtue of the
fact they were first with well over 70% members NON USERS] we have
gleaned a load of members disollusioned by ego masaging, over the
list is endless moderation, post deleting, banning for diagreeing
nobody will ever change that im afraid keyboard warriors will never go
away why? simple they are only tough when locked in their own homes,
at a computer screen very heroic NOT i simply re-register if i get
banned i have a rolling IP so even sites that IP track cant get me [to
prove a point more than anything that they are not as smart as they
think] one threatened legal action to have me permanantely removed
untill i pointed out that what was i doing joining a free internet
forum big deal, make it so i cant and you might get me untill then
worry not they cannot stop you unless you hack their system, which i
have not and never would although i know well how to so on that note i
will leave you again....... fear not these hitlers time will come
their members always get fed up and will start to take one to many
ban, one to many post deleted, and will leave them also for the
opposition and then it will all start again.... thats forum groups for
you if it were a face to face group it would never happen simplez

Peace and out ...

Widely known by who? I presume you mean those few who have an axe to
grind. I would agree that in some cases the moderation does exceed
what is required, and that in some cases moderation takes place in a
vacuum where no information is given about what has happened and it is
this action that is wrong not the moderation itself which may for many
reasons take place. I have myself been known to post to this group on
the actions taken by moderators in UKcampsite.co.uk which moderates in
exactly that way, a simple email explanation of how the message
crossed whatever boundaries that have been set would never go amiss (
on a point of interest in the above named forum never be bold enough
to criticise the ladys mile Caravan site this leads to immediate
banning ) keep 99.9% of posters quite content.
However, I post to Caravantalk and to Touring and tenting and have
never noticed any problem with moderation in fact both are quite quite
happy to accept friendly disagreement. In my own name I got banned
from ukcampsite simply because I pointed out that there had been a
large number of very critical comments posted about Ladys Mile and I
got absolutely no coherent reply from the site owner, in fact he
blamed my commments about the forum on this group a couple of weeks
after the event as the reason for my banning and was even less amused
when I suggested that he must have had the power of clairvoyancy to do
it. Suffice to say that I was posting on the forum within an hour of
being banned and I have continued to do so.

Personally I much prefer the usenet method of communication, it is
easier, more direct, and much quicker to use. Had this group not
suffered massive spam attacks several years ago I think that many of
its previous members would still be posting here. However, one must
move with the times and since the population of caravanners has moved
onto web forums then so have I. Mind you I still check this group
first and do so several times a day.

+1

I dislike forums, but see them as "the way it's going to be" for
specialist groups .. so many ISP's simply don't support Usenet anymore,
or even when they do, they don't actually tell their subscribers that
they do!
