No mention of politics here but extreme censorship applied by closing the thread. One post selected by Admin to admonish despite others just as bad. Did somebody complain via PM ?

Nothing to do with me either for once, but there do seem to be some common denominators.

Just as long as you can keep ‘winding’ it, you should be fine.

That thread started out as a "For Sale" thread and, quite rightly, a member used the Report button to flag up to Admin that there was a problem with the description of the item for sale. The wording was amended with the cooperation of the vendor, which seemed to satisfy the complainant and several others who had commented and I assumed that would be the end of the matter. But no, the comments continued and some started to be personal and disrespectful to other members, such as this:-

"As usual you seemed to miss the point entirely but it matters not. At least it's given you the opportunity to make a post. As long as you are happy with your lens which wasn't purchased from a forum member and therefore the purchase is totally irrelevant to the current point in question, thats fine Otto. I'm very pleased for you and wish you many happy hours using the lens"

By this stage the thread was getting off topic in any case and my judgment was to close it before it descended into the type of free for all we are nowadays accustomed to seeing in the Lounge.

As we slow down it's because our pendulums have lengthened.

By this stage the thread was getting off topic in any case and my judgment was to close it before it descended into the type of free for all we are nowadays accustomed to seeing in the Lounge.
I would suggest the comment quoted (mine), was not so much personal and disrespectful but made with sarcasm and a hint of tongue in cheek and in response to the comment "This seems to me like a lot of quibbling for no good reason."

If the other person concerned or someone else complained about my comment in PM, thats fine and I accept your criticism and admonishment of my post. If not, IMHO it was a case of heavy handed needless moderation and censorship. Closing the thread was also IMHO not necessary but as a member of the Admin Team it is of course your decision and perogative to do so.
