Moderation

I'm not sure for how long my posts have needed approval before being put up, but I just noticed a message that had words to that effect.

I'm sure if I'm posting negative content, that I will be told, the correct way.

I've seen 2 of my messages so far edited by moderators, not single words, or pairs of words, but entire sentences and paragraphs.

What kind of censorship is this?

Is this a place where our opinions and feelings can be stated? Or what?

At this point, I'm seriously questioning the moderation power of some of the admins. If you don't like what I have to say, state your opinion, don't censor mine.

Yeah, I just received that message too on my last two out three posts. Now I'm curious if this one will do it also, or if it was just on that particular thread??? Will be back!

OK, it didn't. It must just be that particular thread that the new member started. Thats ok, I thought maybe I had insulted someone recently or something?

Yeah, I might have jumped the gun just a touch, but the editing of posted messages is getting a bit excessive.

If you have problems with the moderators, please contact me privately. Send me examples of where you are being edited and we can discuss it.

As for moderation of the your posts, that is different. I have software on the site that automatically puts some posts in moderation. It is to prevent the spam posts on the site. We get dozens of spam posts per day from internet bots. You guys never see these because they are automatically put in moderation.

Sometimes this system doesn't work and captures a legitimate post. If that happens to you PM a mod about it and they can approve your post.

I'm glad you have something catching SPAM, Paul. But it's similar to our SPAM filter for our company email. The tighter it filters, the more legitimate emails that it filters out.
