Just had a thought.
Is it not the job of the site administrator to moderate the posts and, as they say, remove ‘inappropriate’ posts?
I’ve seen posts which were blatant advertising removed quite quickly, presumably by the administrator, but does the same happen to abusive posts?
I have to admit to having responded strongly myself to some posts which were, themselves, ‘inappropriate.’ However, I wouldn’t have felt the need to respond like that had the original posts not been made, in the tone/manner they were, in the first place.
It’s a pity there haven’t been more responses to this thread so far, and one or two people are conspicuously absent (for once)……..
