But, can't open it. I can open a thread on either side.
Also if I click on the name Jim Carney as listed in the news
discussion forum, all I get is my thread listings, but not all. It
seems that my last postings to the thread I tried to open have been
removed. My postings are polite without antagonism or namecalling.
I assume somebody has hit the complaint button ?
Does anyone have an explanation ? Has anyone else been removed from
this thread?
thankyou

There is a lot of thread locking/pulling going on. It is very difficult to fathom out the motivation behind the DPR editorial policy. Certainly, very abusive content seems to be fine, and can go without removal or locking. Threads and sub-threads on DPR's editorial policy have I high probability of getting pulled or locked. If this has already been moved, my guess is that it's only a matter of time before it's pulled. As for the original thread, there seems to be a level of political discussion that is not tolerated. I engaged in a series of threads on the ethics of erotic photography, that ended up with threads being pulled and me being banned, even though it was hard to find anything objectionable in the content of the threads themselves. British security policy would seem to be another touchy area. I have a theory that there's some intersection between Phil Askey's belief set and the requirements of the Singapore government (where I believe DPR is hosted: http://www.beesker.com/digital-cameras.asp ) which is not known for its liberal attitude on many issues.
