    They have the ability to block individual people from posting in a thread.

    The question is not how, but why, because...

    Absolutely not.


    The first and only I've ever seen. IHNI if there are others.

    AFAICT it's been done purely because the OP wrote this :


    Like I say - a somewhat alarming development in the way the site is run, and I'd like to see the Mods justify their behaviour.

    Who do you think you are? The moderators do not have to justify anything to you. It’s a privately owned site and if you don’t like it then f**k off and take your whinging with you. E

    I know who I am.


    In one sense you are right.

    But that is not a sense which has any justice, honesty, decency, or morality associated with it.

    Indeed, but why?

    The invocation of which rule justifies them doing it?

    Is it not an alarming development that now anybody can demand that the moderators block people from replying before those people have transgressed in any way?

    The OP went mental over something I wrote in an earlier topic of his, to the extent that he started trawling other topics and other sites for things to have a pop at me over, and now this?

    Like I say - an alarming development

    BAS, as you never have anything constructive to say, it seems reasonable to comply with the op request.

    Get over yourself, and stop whinging.
