Is there some internal politics going on on this forum?


I think we'd all like the answer to that ... because some of them, to your point, are quite valid. It's getting to be obnoxious.

There's a very fine line between moderating and interfering.

I read nothing in the deleted post that I would constitute flaming, ease it up a notch or two.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_(Internet)
Flaming, also known as bashing, is hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users.

here's the interpretation TIMS moderators work from:

My posts were all removed because I suggested to concerned that he quit spending all his time on this board knocking down ccsvi and spend more time researching other treatments that he thinks would be better.
His mother seems to have the right idea but obviously he disagrees.
I think he went to jimmylegs and she decided to delete all our posts. Moderation on this board is extremely inconsistent. If you saw my posts there wasn't any flaming, just saying what the heck are you spending so much time knocking down something you don't believe in, go find something better!

...

It is extremly rude. Who are you to suggested someone how he/she must behave on public forum? Who are you ?!
'His morher seems...' what do you know what his mother seems?!

'...knocking down ccsvi' ... This is not "I BELIEVE in CCSVI" forum. Get used to this. M.

- He stated before his mother is very interested in ccsvi, before you make comments you should read the posts.
- No it's not rude to ask why someone who doesn't believe in a treatment spends all their time knocking it down.
- I am all for constructive criticism, I understand that people should discuss both sides of the issue. But, during discussions you do need to listen to the other side.
This has gone on long enough, my final points are; the moderators need to get more consistent, and concerned needs to move on to a treatment he approves of for his mother as obviously he will never be a ccsvi 'believer'.
