    Ditto what John said, and I don't mean talking like him. It is a good suggestion to just delete a post that goes overboard. For myself I think it would be a tough job being a moderator and deciding which posts go overboard and should be deleted. At what point does heated discussion turn into rancor.

    However, that should be your call and everyone who belongs to the forum abides by your rules and judgement.

    As Ruzzle said, is a week to give a cool down time and a bit of rest to everybody.

    Lately a lot of post really went over the top.

    The P&R is meant like a place to give members a lot of freedom to talk about some controversial issue.

    But is not to be taken advantage of to attack insult and harass other users.

    I usually expect users to be able to control and moderate themselves, and mostly it works, or used to work, but lately it seems like it need too much intervention from the moderators and I've seen quite a few post that are frankly unacceptable.
    I've also seen a lot of provocative threads and posts, only meant to target some specific members and stir up shit, which does not bring anything good to the entire forum.

    Freedom is great, but must be used carefully(sorry, can't find a more appropriate word)

    Its just a week, there will be 51 more of them to make all kinds of posts there.

    Well have things sorted soon with clear guidelines for all to follow, not just the users, but the mods too.

    I'd be happy if it never reopened. I come here to talk about motorcycles.

    You can always simply turn that bit off - HowTo Filter Out P&R Postings
    November 2015. For a whole series of reasons - I am retiring from Forum Life. I've been testing my resolve to live without using them - and feel better for it. Yes I will miss the contact I have with folk around the world - but my life is changing - and I am moving on. Certain forum members have my email address and I will see emails - but I will not be returning to the forum and will not attend PM's. Stay well all.

    It seems that I am at least partly to blame for the recent meltdown. If so, I sincerely apologize to everyone. I made a tongue in cheek comment that obviously deeply offended a moderator. That was certainly not my intent.

    If anything I post offends anyone all they need to do is PM me and I will gladly edit the post. If a moderator finds a post offensive, by all means delete the post.

    I believe a simple set of rules, evenly enforced, will be welcomed by all.
