Not being interested in bars, I've not been following that thread but in general the things that get deleted are simply hateful unsubstantiated rumors or accusations particularly when proper names are used. Some times there's a bit of apparent randomness but not knowing the process to delete a post, I imagine that someone with a bum arm might delete above and or below a given hateful post.

Some posts need to be deleted, no doubt. But, they're down to deleting anything and everything. Jokes, unpopular opinions, Bible verses, comments about political figures, you name it. Try to discuss the censorship on topix and they take the whole thread down. It's out of hand and it has killed the interest and fun that Somerset topix use to be. The lack of traffic proves it.

It's funny how many posts are deleted from the "deleted threads" thread.

Shameless.

Yet London Topix is infected with Nigerian scams; threads offering spellcasting spam.

Topix isn't doing anything. A local moderator that oversees the Somerset forum deletes whatever they want, not just violations of the Topix TOS.

These deletions don't take the normal "send us your feedback" route. That takes 24-48 hours. Here you see posts gone in 15 minutes. Why? A local who watches the boards. They delete any post discussing moderation or censorship as well.

Look at this thread, half the posts are gone. Check out the liquor store thread, deleted posts everywhere.

Just post in London, there you can express an opinion and trust your post to remain.

I did notice a whole thread deleted that I commented on the other day. My comment was of a sexual nature, but nothing explicit.

The funniest one yet was the attempt to go to the Richmond thread to discuss Somerset. The local mod followed that trail and had those posts taken down. Anything goes on the Richmond thread, but you can't talk about Somerset.

I appreciate that you can go to other city forums and discuss freely, but I'd really just like to discuss Somerset issues with Somerset/PC area folks without having the threads taken down everytime it rubs someone the wrong way.

Hey Lisa, didn't you say a while back that you are expecting? Hope you're doing O.K.

Sorry to get personal. I guess I'm having a "Hey Hatti" moment. It won't happen again, but I do hope evrything is going good with you all.

Yeah, look at Richmond forums. Ate up with local high school bullying, homophobic and sexual slurs thrown left and right. No one cares.

But as soon as Somerset forums was brought up, that thread was pulled down within an hour or two. Anytime you report feedback for actual violation of Topix TOS it takes the folks out in California at least 24 hours to pull something down. I tested it recently on an obvious racist troll in the Liberty, KY forums in the "Obama mannequin" thread. It took repeated reports before the posts were finally gone.

In Somerset Forums, you make a joke about hippie milk and the post is gone in under 15 minutes.

This entire thread will disappear shortly. The local mod cannot remove threads, only individual posts. Takes an escalation for a thread to be pulled, or for a poster to be banned. Local mod can just blank posts.

Just stay tuned. Someone will ask the right question and this whole thread will disappear. See they don't like having attention drawn to the fact that this forum is heavily censored. If the censorship was justified then it wouldn't be a problem. But if they're wrong (and they are) then talking about it exposes them.
Watch you clock, cause this ones about to go "poof"

Haha, found the Judge It coward. Knew it wouldn't take much to bring ya out into the open.

You even had to go back and judge your own post with check marks and lit bulbs.
