Ben should take to the streets and hold a protest, rather like this fellow.

"A Russian performance artist has been arrested after stripping naked and nailing his scrotum to a cobblestone in Red Square in protest at what he called the country's descent into a "police state".

Whoever edited my opening post should realise that the term "mongoloid" is very offensive
And perhaps they should think on and not be so discriminatory against people with Downs Syndrome
It's on a par with disgusting racism or homophobia.
Shameful, absolutely shameful

Horrific.

Ben was shaking his head when he saw it, as his brothers Missus's sister has a poor child with Downs.
Ben actually was full of anger and couldn't believe such words were allowed to be posted on a forum like this in 2013

This isn't something subjective - Reggie is 100% correct, you sad man.
Having said that, I agree that Reggie is a nobber and so is Ben. Do I get a prize?

I am genuinely shocked. Is this real? Did a moderator really edit your post to say that?

Loads of banter happens on this site, maybe a few lines get crossed (for example, some of the OP's posts are kind of homophobic occasionally, then other posters are openly racist/xenophobic) but I accept that. That's one of those things, different people have different attitudes and also most people act differently on the internet than they do in real life.


People say stuff, people say stuff back. Maybe it's in the heat of the moment, maybe a post has irritated someone so much that they'll stew on it and just boil over and post an angry reply. This will always happen and the moderators are here to deal with the junk. I appreciate that they do this voluntarily and that it is a thankless task, but it's also very true that without mods any forum becomes a mess.

But as Voltaire (or Uncle Ben from Spiderman) once said "With great power comes great responsibility" and in my opinion it is the responsibility of the moderators to exercise control of their emotions and reign in their bigoted opinions.

I hope a moderator didn't edit that post. I didn't even realise that editing of posts happened.

The poll I did with questions asking if Ben could return was heavily edited, funnily enough after it showed that yes, the majority did want Ben back.
I was banned twice in the last 2 days, once for being in the same flat as Ben while he posted, and posted non offensive things as Neil Caterham will testify.
Once last night for saying I'd heard Ben was allowed back.

This thread itself has been heavily edited by a mod, the title obviously and the opening post by me.

And to put the tin lid on it, I'll have people thinking I've used the word Mongoloid in a derogatory sense, which im not at all happy about and to which Ben is fuming with anger about

Exactly, it's been going on too much lately for my liking.
It's usually just for asking if Ben can come back.
I'm in his flat now, we are on the Stella and Tysons clearing up the fat from the rump steaks Ben bought from sainsburys.
He just said he's done nothing wrong and how comes the likes of jellyface can slag him but he can't say nothing back

You didn't realise you were being trolled by a mod for over five years. Impressive lol
