Mods ...what's the point?

What's happening to our beloved Forum??
Seems A bit like North Korea at Ribnet lately

Hey if you Guys want to delete people's posts (Wilk) I think most people would agree an explanation should be standard protocol.... and or just good manners.
I'm pretty sure no Forum rules were Broken??
If so I apologise in advance
..So what's the problem?

You want to try RHIB's on face-ache, CM and his klingons love banning people, if you dare question their word or have an option that's isn't theirs then your deleted, no explanation or reason, nice!! There seems to be a little 'clique' of people ( with some questionable ideas and rules ) who can do no wrong, all other posters are on borrowed time...........................what a bunch of 'anchors'
It goes without saying I choose to spend my valuable time elsewhere

  1. If this was North Korea/RHIBs - you'd be in a bamboo cage up to your neck in sewage...
  2. Your posts have not been deleted - you've just forgotten where to look for them.
  3. That said - generally no explanations about actual deletions are given.
  4. There is a forum rule about whinging - see number 7 (you might want to cast your eye over number 6 too).
  5. In keeping with the spirit in which it was offered, I accept your apology.

The RHIB site on FB is moderated/censored to the point of being pointless. It's pretty much a vehicle for Ribeye appreciation and Ribnet condemnation. CM runs it as a petty tinpot dictator where only his minions survive.

I was blocked for offering four other RIB manufacturer alternatives to Ribeye. I wasn't disparaging towards Ribeye (it wasn't easy ), I simply listed alternatives.

For the time that I survived as a member, I don't remember a post that was particularly interesting, or of any particular informative value. It was all a bit 'chippy' towards non- leisure ribs and this site IMV.

This post? http://www.rib.net/forum/f9/ribcraft...tml#post752339

I think someone might have a persecution complex

My advice for users suspecting a post delete is twofold:

1. Ask yourself why you went back to see if your post was still there.
2. Check your list of Previous Posts in your Profile to see if perhaps you simply forgot where you posted them.

Time for someone to "sing the sorry song"?

In the interests of Full Disclosure, I feel I should point out that you are technically still banned on here too.

After the Nuclear War, the cockroaches and you will rule the planet

Fortunately it didn't take me long to work out that CM and his groupies weren't worth wasting time on think his alternative forum to Ribnet also failed due to no interest, hardly surprising

Very interesting. So you dont ever follow or re visit a particular post you have commented on?

Believe you me , i hadn't " forgotten" where I had made this comment, maybe you added it back again to make your self look master of the forum!?

Generally not, no. If someone replies then obviously I'll revisit the thread.

Oh for sure - we delete and reinstate posts to induce paranoia and fear in the forum users...

...or maybe you forgot.

Perhaps all of your posts should start in the Bilges. The mods could then decide which, if any, should be let out.

To be fair, that could apply to most of us, maybe time to adopt a bottom up rather than a top down approach Re. The FB "alternative" as an avid people watcher, I find it quite amusing. You know as soon as a certain member makes a comment, however inane, the same troupe will be hitting the "like" button. So predictable but somehow oddly satisfying

The censorship on Rib.net has the same level as internet censorship in North Korea and also the colours in the Rib.net layout (red, blue and withe) are the same colours as in the North Korean flag (and Russian). I guess we'll soon get a picture of Kim Joun-un in an English rib.

So, Rib.net should say sorry to Maximus

You know how the Skandis have a slightly idiosyncratic sense of humour? I suspect that he may be just a little tongue in cheek...

I thought you were naturally youthful - I didn't realise it was "product" keeping you that way...
