Heres a question for you - You create a site (good one at that) who's content is created by its own members thus driving up impressions and web exposure - you expect a modicum of bad posts which you need to keep in check - so why penalise longer serving members for reacting to bad posts and try to enforce a ROP ? If it wasn't for the big spats would it not impact on your impressions ? If by your new ROP plan you should have deleted the Princess Production thread - you did'nt - yet it ran out of control for days with the potential of destroying a bone fide businesses reputation - it was deleted in the end but then another series of mini threads had spawned - (the 'which one' thread was ******* funny i must say) - but now you get shirty because someone bleets on about rough justice in the introduce yourself thread? . And lets not mention the Maddy thread ffs - that got a mention by Hugh Mair on the Grauniad .
