I have a proposal about the forum's rules. As you probably know, whenever a moderator decides that certain posts or remarks within a post are insulting, uncivil, sarcastic or rude, he or she removes that message and leaves a new message instead The message says something to the effect of the following: "rude, uncivil or sarcastic remark removed". This is not made clickable, so other forum members or visitors cannot read it, only the label remains, that says that the poster was rude. Unless a post contains obvious vulgarities or obvious personal insults, it is not always very clear to make a distinction, whether a particular remark was really rude or sarcastic or not. Therefore it is left to a moderator to "decide" what they think is rude or insulting etc. After removing a message, only a label "rude remark deleted" remains, with no proof whatsoever. Therefore a member's reputation is obviously at stake. So the proposition is this: Whenever a remark is removed, there should be a clickable link, to show, what the remark actually is. Then everyone, who wants, can decide upon rudeness, and then one can really say, that everyone saying something can take responsibility about it. This is more fair to moderators and members. Also it shows that a moderator has responsibility. We should not live in a society (even if it is an online forum; therefore virtual), where one can label someone as they fancy without any proof or responsibility. Any remarks that this is a "private forum" do not make sense: this forum is out in the open on the world wide web for everyone to read. I will not hide the fact, that I made a remark, that was considered rude and sarcastic and that made me think about this issue. One can start to speculate on my "hidden agendas", but my proposition is really simple and clear.
