I take it that you are referring to the recent For Sale thread that I closed yesterday. In fairness to John (whom you and others refer to as the policeperson) I have now looked in detail at the posting history of the member who started that thread and it is my opinion that John's concerns have been vindicated, which has prompted me to take appropriate action.

You make a good point about concerns being expressed in open thread, but once again in fairness to John I should explain that I still have not got around to investigating another issue that he previously brought to my attention by private message.

So you see, I am part of the problem and I must admit I have been struggling a bit just lately in my Mod role and my motivation. For this I apologise.
