    I assume Mods have to work as well.

    Plus, Mods may be on different continents, so my guess is that "taking a minute" to discuss anything isn't as easy as it sounds given the time differences.

    1 it's an expression
    2 it's been over a day since the offending post .a post which one mod called disgusting, and another disliked, and as a result a third mod closed the thread. They have had plenty of opportunities to act
    3 it was a post that would clearly earn a RC and a suspension if uttered on pitch
    4 it's clearly in contravention to the values of rugby


    And yet the post is still there . I don't understand why rugbyrefs.com is perfectly happy to publish comments like that.
    It's absolutely not what this site should be standing for. I feel ashamed by it

    If that comment was on a club website the CB would absolutely take action and the club would be sanctioned. I dont understand what this site stands for that the mods leave it there e

    Time difference my foot. They have decided it's ok. But it's not

    I think you make a very good point crossref.

    But equally I'm ok with free speach. I found it unpalatable but didnt think it needed to be a cause to close the thread. I try not get offended but if I do I simply think that it reflects more on the person saying it...not those reading it.

    But it is curious that it was too bad to leave open but not bad enough to just deleted the posts that crossed the line?

    when refereeing, if something happens that you know many players will perceive as foul play, but you are going to play on, then we all know that good game management is to acknowledge the incident and say something

    - at the time 'Play on! Seen it, nothing in that!'
    - and then afterward to the captain a brief word to explain 'I saw it - completely understand the appeals, but to me they both had a realistic chance to catch it, and they collided, rugby incident, not foul play
    .. or whatever.

    This settles the players and builds confidence in you (even if they don't agree)


    On the other hand, when a poor referee says nothing at all and, through gritted teeth, eyes ahead, simply refuses to acknowledge any thing took place, and says nothing to the captains, then this is not good management. The players are left guesssing and lose confidence.

    Surely, from reading this thread, there is a reason why a thread needs "dealing with" If there is something "unacceptable" in it. ust because people are bored with it is a reason to avoid not close.

    If a thread bacome offensive / libelous or whatever then it either needs DELETING or editing. This surely needs to be done promptly to remove the offence.

    Now, as has been said there is an issue with time differences and or availability of mods able to "discuss" issues.

    So what is the solution?

    I suggest a "quarantine" area. This would be a thead / sub forum where only mods can read threads. Any Mods could "quarantine a thread they are not happy with and the other mods would be alerted. They could then look at the "offensive" thread and agree tho either Delete the thread completely or edit it and returning to the original forum or "overrule" the originals mods "censorship" action.

    This way we don't leave offensive material on public display.

    Is this possible?

    The added complexity is everyone has a different "offensive meter" - so youll be relying on mods meter as the moral compass to censor the site. Which is fine by me..but presumably guidance about what will be censored will need to be provided?
