Sorry, could not resist.....
[ Just a honest bit of fun.......Everyone needs to chill out..... ]
In situations like this, I always fail to understand why some people
find it so hard to just follow the rules.
This site is about Professional ICT for Professionals in ICT:
so why the constant non-professionalism?
And as for censorship: if you post something that is not appropriate,
it will no doubt get censored. Take that as a clue and think about what
you post in future. If you are getting repeated infractions, well, perhaps you
need to seriously assess your posting habits, or spend a little extra time with the
"Preview post" button and really think about what you are posting?
If you want complete free speech and the ability to do whatever you like, start your own site.
Here, keep it clean and within the rules. Simple, really.
I'll be honest and say that I have *never* said 'nicked' to someone when arresting them ... I would just feel as if I was in an episode of The Bill! A mate did say "this is going to hurt me more that it will hurt you" and true enough ... it did since he was arresting his father-in-law.
Tah .. sorry hijak over..
Opps sorry forgot we aren't allowed to have an opinion here or Diello will lock the thread..
also you locked a thread where board members were expressing their dissatisifaction with te moderation of this board and you lock it ... ROFLMAO
Sorry mate get off you high horse.. this board might be privately owned but with out the members contributing it's nothing.. just and empty privatly owned shell..
The reason this board got so big was that it was good fun and a bit of crack... but then someone decided to take this good thing and corporarise it into what it has turned into..

- but I was not a fun guy like him so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Mattx and Hightower,
- but I was neither, so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Wise Cracking Old Members,
- but I was not a Wise Cracking Old Member so I did not speak out.
And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.
This site is not your playground. Stop being selfish and realise that the thousands of other people on here risk losing it as a useful resource in school if childish and inappropriate behaviour is common.
I use the site less and less, because of censorship issues and the fact that the site has lost some of independence. The biggie for me was the site admins views on BSF.
But I am just repeating myself from things I already said a while ago.
Time to drift away again.
Surely the site is for all Educational IT professionals not just you school techs, about time some of you grew up and acted sensible just like us College techs. Or if you can't take a joke you shouldn't have joined...
*yawn* Is your life really that boring that trying to rile people up on a website is the highlight of your day? OK, you want to use metaphors - then have you thought of yourself as the disruptive kid in the class that doesn't understand the work, so is disrupting everything the Teacher is trying to do, because they think it "looks cool" with their mates, then cries that they're being picked on when they get told off for it? If we're the primary school hall monitors, then you're the naughty little boy that spends half his time outside the Head's office because he's incapable of reasonable behaviour.
It has nothing to do with me not liking what you're saying. Rule - No swearing, you read that, your next post contains an outright expletive, and basically a "hey, watch me get an infraction for breaking the rules!". Then you cry fowl because a stop is put on it and whine about your freedom of speech. What about people's right to come here without you swearing, trolling, and mouthing off all the time? What about DB's right to impose whatever rules he sees fit on the Board?
Actually - the thread had stopped being about people complaining about the moderation - If you actually read it, an answer had been given, and people had largely been happy with that and moved on, it was only you who thought it'd be fun to drag it all up again and start swearing, that's why it got locked.
As has been said, if you don't like it here, you know where the door is - or like I said, are you just trying to pull a suicide by cop and get banned, then claim "o woe me" again?
I think the phrase here is - Put up, or shut up.

You lot are worse than my two teenagers!
Yes, I'm an "old-timer". Yes, I was in favour of closing the other thread before those with hot tempers lost control...
The way I feel at the moment; perhaps eduGeek should start charging for membership. Then those who only want to play rough might decide their money would be better spent elsewhere.
Age doesn't come into it. Attitude does.
GROW UP YOU LOT!
Or it'll be early to bed without any TV or computer time tonight!
