Id like to think the majority of here can see why it wouldnt look good me allowing it either
Totally understand, But it's not just PC enthusiast forums *Mostly but not all the time* I've seen over moderation happen to, It's also the bodybuilding and fitness forums, Now some of them I've seen burst out into all out warfare because of moderators

Personally I think the problem is that a lot of moderators on various forums that are hired or given magic forum powers think everything should be lovely and shiny when the reality of the thing is people like to moan, Swear and vent like adults should be able to without being slapped on the wrist and told "No ! You naughty little girl pants, Now go and play nice".

And here you can talk like an adult and not worry about kids or people with virgin ears who cry to mum and dad when they see adult orientated words.

This is true but what can you expect on a forum, which is open to anyone?

I'll mention one which is fairly over-the-top moderated etc.. Battlelog... it's horrendous over there, always has been, is it any wonder it has been renamed Mordor etc..

They have some pretty serious censorship stuff going on over there which makes me sad really.

I'm not naming and shaming, it's just a good example of a forum that, in my opinion is there solely for the self gratification of the DICE/EA team and nothing else.

Dicehunter I couldn't agree more! I've been on many forums over the years and in all honesty this has to be the best in the way of an actual community that blends well and while we all get along we also have our differences but... we all know that respect is always given.
The last forum I was part of had 2 moderators that teamed up and bullied the rest even to the point of calling BS on valid facts or discussions because they didn't agree, I left after a argument with admin as there was no way two 14 year old power crazed boys were going to speak to me or treat me in that way moderators or not. Respect is respect
