Just as an aside

When a thread is removed by the mods would it be possible for them to leave a place marker/reason for deletion.

I have been trying to find a thread from yesterday but it has disappeared completely.

I can only assume that one of the mods has removed it for whatever reason.

Very confusing when there is no sign it even existed. Just a single post saying " I didn't like it" or some such would do.

I was just getting into that thread as well before I was outted!!

so that was not you posting when said thread was in full swing
Or "You didn't have a lot of time to read every thread going PTP, so you went straight to the one where you suspected there may have been unsavoury posts in the 2 minutes you had available"?

I now have the luxury of more time today, and will spend it reading through every post that has appeared in the time I was away.

As stated by me Tillyoohoo , repeatedly , any post concerning upcoming legal action or courts-martial gets deleted as soon as I have seen it

I have stated my reasons for this every time. In all the posts that I have deleted on this sort of topic, only one concerned an Officer , and in deleting that thread, I was subjected to an amount of vitriol that "I was not allowing his side of the story to be told" by people who knew him. I have deleted far more threads concerning OR's. In one case , I was accused of deleting the thread, because it concerned OR's from my Regiment. :roll:

I do this, because some people cannot resist telling "what they know" , which is not the best thing to happen when the Media are banging about and there are CM's or Legals in progress. If I had read through that thread when I was logged on for the VERY brief period I had available yesterday, it would have been closed and locked then.

There is no "Favouritism to Officers" , as I'm sure some Officers here will testify. This is simply a case of not having been able to have the time to read through the thread before. I have now had the time to do so, and my immediate reaction is to close the thread, pending deletion.

Too true PTP... :D

Love ya really!

Best piece of advice I've ever been given about ARRSE - if you don't like it, fcuk off.

And for the terminally dense - that was the advice.

Darth D,
What's the relevance of the photograph of the fat knacker at the bottom of your post?

I should point out D-D , there was more than one Officer involved in the errrrr "Aggressive querying of the position of Arrse" in that case. :D


Still, I gather it may all have turned out ok? (Without mentioning names or cases)

PTP - absolutely delighted, as you may have divined! :D

Queensman - that 'fat knacker' happens to be a damn fine and extremely capable Field Commander; a truly inspiring man; and it was an absolute pleasure to serve under his command - wish we had more like him...

...and he's so scruffy, he makes me look smart...

He also has a habit of wearing overlarge smocks, hence his apparent size.

I agree.

Photograph taken in Kosovo winter when anyone not office-bound was wearing several layers anyway!

...he may be scruffy DD, but not so scruffy as to make ME look smart...

80+ posts and 4000+ views without it breaking down into rants and raves. Thank god PTP is there to save us from ourselves. <sigh>

Next time perhaps you could stay away a little longer being terribly brave and clever.

I was quite enjoying it, exposed a probable double BB reincarnation as well!!

Tilly,

I find PTP to be an outstanding MOD and entirely fair. Remember he and the other MOD's have to balance discussion with avoiding potential liability from arrse's standpoint. Arrse attracts a wide range of readers/posters including lurking journalists.

here here T6... *bangs on table*...

The quality of current affairs debate on Arrse is outstanding. PTP's moderation is a (the?) key reason for this. For example, nowhere else can you get a wide spectrum of views from Frenchperson to Armourer to Crabtastic to T6 --- but without the more extreme and ridiculous tinfoil hat or mil.com stuff. A truly wide spectrum and I'm sure they are all annoyed to be placed in the same sentence.

Now removing my tongue from PTP's arrse, tillyoohoo - if you do have a query about moderation then why don't you raise it without implying PTP has lied about something. No need to be checking dates on his posts....

Tricam.

He clearly doesn't mind appearing on ARRSE. I could be being daft - but what about PERSEC?
