A paradox itself, but I feel issue is bigger than that.... I want to know from the rule makers of this forum... Ref : http://sciforums.com/threads/what-is-mainstream-views-on.156052/ Q1. Is it proper on the part of the Moderator to give his response inside the OP itself ? As per rules Mod has the right to edit / delete (unacceptavle or abusive contents) but he has no right to give his response inside the OP, this is overstepping on the part of this particular Moderator? Moderator is a member too, he should very clearly understand these two roles. Q2. is there any rule for which a member can be awarded poins for reporting some other members post ? The warning line at the top of the OP, is violation of member's right of secret reporting ? If the Moderator had any objection on reporting he could have PMed, he could have rejected my report (with warning in alert message)..where was the need for publicly disclosing. I thought it prudent to report a provoking and nonsensical pots#2 by Paddoboy to avoid further stupid exchange, but this Moderator instad of understanding the situation in totality, acted arbitrarily. Q3. Was the Moderator action Justified ? This particluar poster (Schneibster) asserted 3 Points (as raised in my above thread) claiming that too be mainstream. These assertion were objected by me and at least couple of other posters. I even specifically requested Mods to intervene and clarify the stand, but Mods did not respond, so I was forced to create this new thread. It was a dereliction of duty on the part of Mods not to intervene and respond when specifically asked for on a disputable point, on top of that it is absurd to act arbitrarily when question was raised with a force. Mods are responsible for letting situation come to this. I want that my OP be reinstated, of course any abusive or objectional non technical matter can be edited, this particluar Mod has the right to respond as member or (even as expert Mod) in a separate post.
