Between the language and translation differences, the borderline offensive use of idioms ("someone who has no clue whatsoever", "Stupid is as stupid does", "needs to have his brain examined") and the level and quantity of personal feelings being expressed as absolute facts, it's been quite a ride!

I'm one of the moderator of the forum. I saw some of these comments and let them pass as borderline under "the civil rule".

The problem I'm encountering is

  1. Being too strict
  2. Being too lenient
  3. I didn't see these comments. Sometimes I miss things...
  4. Being too lazy or busy. Like "It's not bad enough" or "I don't have the time" (I also have a life and I try to run a business).

I think that these comments fell under the category 4.

Please note 1: that in this comment, I only speak for myself and not for the other moderators nor for DPR itself.

Please note 2: If you want to make "my work easier", you can flag these comments and complain. One of us is sure to investigate.

I was the target of the comments, and I didn't complain. The fact is that Karl feels strongly about this and will express himself strongly. I can't see that reading the comments does anyone any harm, and maybe even has an 'entertainment' value. So, as a moderator, I think you took the right decision - overcontrolled discussion is dull discussion.
