I think you are confused mate - I was mainly directing this to G4ry, because he was the one being stupid.

This was in no way directed at you whatsoever.

They don't try and ban freedom of speech.
You gave that up when you joined the forum. One can't post explicit images and posts which are not in the viewing nature for younger viewers of this forum. Therefore you're only playing by d and the moderators rules; so you don't have freedom of speech - just merely censorship.

I never said i wanted this forum to be full of political discussion. It's a "student" forum - which when one considers that questions about school subjects, universities, issues regarding students and maybe a bit of social life springs to mind. I'm not saying ban every single thread that does not fall into one of those categories. Just i really don't see a need why a thread on hair straighteners warrants a thread on a student forum or a thread titled "how long is your hair?", "how big is your nose?", "what colour socks should i wear tomorrow?" and so on . Could this person not search on the internet if that person was really interested in finding out?

If people are really bored at school and want to chat they can go to the UKL chat room.

This is the address:

http://www.uk-learning.net/chat and they can spread the word about it to other forum members and more people will go there soon.

Clearly you are mistaken.

If the thread was non-offensive and people were discussing it, then it is not of any of your concern.

Clearly because the thread in question didn't suit *your* thread likes, you chose to go whining to the moderators and delete a thread that shouldn't have been deleted.

As I said, once you start dictating what people can say etc. then you know that what you're doing is blatantly crap.

okay two questions:

One, Why is bono, 2003 ukl worst spammer and enemy number 1 of the gentlemen's league, on a thread that is supposed to be about not spamming?

Two, would it help if the mods deleted all the threads that haven't been replied to in like a week?

Yes... bono should leave this thread alone, and stick to what he's best at - mainly "What is your favourite cheese" type threads. A good idea would be to create a subforum for him alone to post in. That way, he can still maintain his post count, and feel contended at knowing his name is near the top of a list, yet we don't have to read any of his posts. I think that it would work for everyone.

It's a good idea but i don't think the mods would do it since then other people would want their own subforum. I really think that bono would like the idea though.

What about deleteing the old forums. Would that help with the busy server messages?

Couldnt they archive old posts on a different site or in a subforum that would make the place loads tidier I think.

Probably, but it would make stuff harder to find, I'd imagine.

Yeah but do we really need to find the stuff that keeps getting dredged up by newbies from 6 months ago.

Maybe if they cleared out the older chatty threads and left the ones with anything of lasting value it would clear out the clutter.

I wonder if the site could get more money if some of the sponsored links were made into pop-ups (not that I like pop-ups but they're easily blocked from our end and could pay for a few mor upgrades)

Good idea - everyone has pop-up blockers anyway, so it wouldn't really affect us.
