Our New Year resolution

is to delete without comment any threads or posts which contain potentially libellous and/or defamatory comments.

There has been a slight increase in this type of contribution of late - hence this warning. Recently there have been several successful actions against web forums which permitted libellous posts to remain 'on air', and we have no intention of finding ourselves in a similar situation.

Statement A:

"I think that PCA supercomputers Ltd. have treated me very badly, and I have lost faith in their ability to deliver my order."

Is permissable.

Statement B:

"PCA supercomputers are a load of con merchants - don't buy from these cowboys."

Will be deleted without warning or explanation, there will be no right of appeal, and our decision will be final. I'm sorry to adopt such a dictatorial tone - I'm sure you'll all understand the serious nature of this matter.

a new year revolution?

Understood, must admit FE I can't see why this was not done sooner.

Go one step further? Delete all the 'I got a virus from a p2p site' might save the 'for and against' arguments.

Can you delete every post which mentions Kazaa?

  northamuk 01:36 04 Jan 2003

Dunno, why not? It stirs up a hornet's nest almost every time.

Wow - don't think I'll buy anyfink from PCA supercomputers Ltd. then - now the FE has slated them.

(Sorry - couldn't resist - the devil made me do it ;-)))

"It stirs up a hornet's nest almost every time"

Yeh, hence the above post ;-)

  barryoneoff 02:02 04 Jan 2003

The Hornets might sue, why keep bringing them into it?

  Lozzy 02:28 04 Jan 2003

I agree with Djohn this should have been done a lot sooner.. If people are discontented yes air you views but keep it in lines of sensibility..

Well done FE and Happy New Year
