    Abuse of Power

    Moderators, (NAT no doubt) changing the title of a thread to reflect their personal view.

    I didn't realise we had religious thought police on here, I just thought they were typical deluded fools.
    Ah well, live and let live.
    I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful. [Christopher Hitchens]

    Is this the one where NAT changed the title of your thread "Can anyone recommend some Swiss Chocolate?" to "Can anyone recommend interracial dogging sites so I can get some Swiss Chocolate?"

    Cancel your membership fee and ask for your money back?

    Anyway, the mods have a daily lottery to decide which thread title today. Is it 11am they have the random user banning lottery?

    Is the lottery where they just drop Suity's name into hat and then see who they pull back out?

    Aw diddums? Is poor little Paddy throwing a Paddy 'cos it's so unfair?

    I think the idea that your subject title was inaccurate and possibly even misleading is not a "personal view" but entirely objective.

    Do you not think the new title reflects that actual event rather better than one you came up with? Or do you really think that a white supremacist/racist bastard shooting a bunch of black people at a bible study in an historic church is actually a case of Christian on Christian violence?

    There's a few other names in the mix, just to add a bit of variety.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    So why not spend your time correcting all the titlea of threads in General as to reflect the contents?

    Because most of the threads would have the words 'another tulip thread' in the title.

    So you agree the new title is more accurate?

    No, I do not agree and your childish comments should be addressed to yourself.
