Depends on where you post that. There are sub-forums which are "free for all" and "free for everything". As for the technical sub-forums: Please understand that I can't have people ask the same question again and again and again ... Not only does it add to the confusion if a newbie later on tries to find a solution to the same problem it also increases the workloads of those trying to help. And that's silly, hence I move and if needed close redundant threads if I happen to come across them.haveanotherpuff wrote:I thought forums had rules about waste post with useless information
Huh? Example? I don't think I am "insulting" anyone if I tell them that they could have given one or two more thoughts about their postings, e.g. "do I really need to open a new topic?" and "is this the right location for my question?". So yes, sometimes I gave certain users a little "wakeup" and most of the time even the right link to the previous topic ... but "insults"?telic wrote:What puts me off is seeing that the "moderation" often includes a petty insult.

Some tolerance levels are higher than others I guess?haveanotherpuff wrote: ... if you think not then Mister you should think again ...
That is not necessary. This here is about keeping a certain order in the forum and not about censoring what people have to say As they say in a mobile phone commercial here: "Be free, express yourself". Just do it in the right place, pleasehaveanotherpuff wrote: I apologise for expressing myself ...
