RRBum has been banned

Many of you calling for his banning are new and probably used to nice comfortable forums where extremist views are shunned. If you don`t like it leave, go to FreeRepublic, instead of chasing off the people you don`t agree with.
It is the nutcases who attracted me to Pravda in the first place, not the over sensitive, self righteous thought police.

none of the above is a qualification for moderating pravda.

Important is to estimate freedom of speech.
6 000 Millions of people are more or less
under permanent mental suppression.
Nevermind from whom. Starts by children, wife,
local politicians, business, national politic,
special laws, society, dictators, or even the churches.
Even if I would be a rebbe by myself, I
would leave this bloody virtual Hide Park
as it is , knowing about my own frustrations.

I think that's crazy. I had stopped reading his posts ages ago after he practically accused me of being a Welshman.
Banning is no solution. As so many in this thread have pointed out before me, he was a standing example of what we ought NOT to be.
His views on Jews were the infinite in terms of hatred, I agree.
But what about a person who posts wishing that a hundred thousand more civilians should die in the next terrorist attack on the US?
Is he okay? Or do we have limits on infringement here?
What exactly are the rules?

I don`t want Pravda to become like FreeRepublic where only one type of ideology is permitted and people are banned because they upset delicate sensibilities. It`s boring.

I won't miss him.

It's about the most thankless job around in a forum such as this.
Do you remember the movie about the kids growing up on an Island and becoming completely out of control?
Interestingly, there is a parallel here. Those who believe there are no boundries cry when boundries are presented (that had ALWAYS been there).
Each one of these people "signed" an agreement when registering for this forum and they know it.
Yet they go on as if it is a God given right to dispute and slam those who would do what Pravda's editors don't have time to do.
The same people are complaining right now that complained on the old forum. Others don't have the backbone to defend those who try to do what is right. Thus, the moderators are alone on an Island and Pravda's Editors yet again stay silent while their moderators go down in "flames".
We do not have to explain ourselves to the members here. We were given the right to moderate the forum by Dmitry to the best of our ability. We have chosen to explain our actions as it is right and it is the fair thing. Atossa used to say "Psyops" when things disappeared or members were banned without explaination. We are doing the best we can. Let those who would complain about us re-read their agreement regarding posting here before they complain anymore. I do not agree with Plsek in regards to her views. Regarding her moderation, she has done well and has my complete support. You have gone up and beyond what any of us would be willing to do in trying to articulate your reasons for your actions. You have my respect in this regard. Those who continue to complain about the moderation have their blinders on and will never be happy..... EVER.
Moderation here means living on a very small island. At least this time, I have company. Too bad the waters rising and we are left by the powers that be to drown in the sea of discontent.
