most of the time, we archive any thread that is just "b.s."... then the member can still find it.

if it's inappropriate, we get it out of public view, then eventually remove it alltogether. we don't have to justify why we did it or where it went.

whenever anyone on this forum signed up, they agreed to the following:

Quote:
"8. Moderation - If a post or thread you have made has been moderated, please live with it. Moderators do not edit posts for the fun of it and do not have time to justify themselves every time. Moderators, and only moderators, can decide when a topic is to be locked/unlocked. Abuse towards admins or moderators will not be tolerated. This is not a rule to test your limits on. Live with the moderation or move on."
Enjoy the site. Don't make threads just to stir people up.

and in response to the contributor comments,

Don't "contribute" if you don't want to. No on is forcing your hand.

If you'll also notice in the contributor thread:

Quote:
Disclaimer:

Contributing to a website does not grant you any kind of seniority or higher status. You don't contribute to a site so that others know you did. You contribute to a site, because you appreciate the time, money, and effort that goes into it and you want to be a part of helping in keeping it going. By contributing here we want to thank you for contributing by giving you some fun features and some free stuff. We cap the contributing at fifteen dollars so that no one contributes more than another financially. Most people can afford fifteen dollars. If you cannot afford to contribute to the site financially, no worries. You still have access to the exact same site, forums, and community as everyone else at a cost of $0.00. Every member here is on level ground. Whether it be a moderator, admin, newbie, or long time technical guru. No one here is more important than another and no one here is to be set above others. Contribute if you feel the want to, but if you do not it is ok. There is no obligation and nothing lost if you do not. Contributions are non-refundable."
Whether there are 100 contributors or zero contributors, the site will still be here (with no advertisements) any morning you get on to log into the site. (assuming no technical difficulties) Being a contributor does not give you any right to anything and that is explicitely dictated.

Speaking with regard to previous posts in this thread, as well as the rules of the website:

I understand that there are no obligations for any moderator to inform the user that originally created a thread ( whether the O.P. was trouble starter, or if replies got off-topic and out of hand). However I would like to say that it would be greatly appreciated if the moderator who locked a thread could take 2-5 minutes to inform the original poster that his or her thread was locked and they have the option of starting a similar thread as long as it wasn't violating any of the rules. I suggest that only as a courtesy.

Generally we are a community here that interacts quite well with each other. There is no reason to treat the mods like a policing squad, and alternately no reason for Mods to act like police. A big part of the reason most of us enjoy R-F so much is the general courtesy amongst members.

I don't think that's what he is saying, I think he is just defending no notification in the past and if the trend continues of no notification, there is no reason or right to cry "foul".
