"Posts discussing moderator actions are not allowed"

"Posts discussing moderator actions are not allowed"

I assume this post and thread will be removed, or at least locked.

Hopefully, someone sees it - and the moderator removing it does think some minutes on the kind of message this rule sends to the members.

I have been a member many years and made many posts. I think this sux!

Re: "Posts discussing moderator actions are not allowed"

All I did was politely suggest that multiple threads from same person on same theme were not really helpful.  I did not say I disagreed with anyone - nor did I attack anyone.  Just spouting some (forum) commonsense.

I agree with you. IMO dpReview should rethink moderation and posting rules a little.

Re: "Posts discussing moderator actions are not allowed"

It is said that "absolute power corrupts absolutely", but we are just talking about moderation on a small discussion group in a photo website.

I'm just glad to see an end (hopefully) to long threads full of post after post containing nothing but interpersonal conflict crap.  I think we can all agree that sort of thing is just a waste of time.

Somebody has to step up to do this dirty work and I am glad somebody did step up.  This is an equipment and technical and user experience forum and extraneous stuff ought to be kept out of it.  So call me a moderator fanboy, but I approve of the idea of moderation.

Moderation itself is usually good and needed, but Roland complained (and IMO rightly) about draconian rule about discussing moderation actions.

What about long flamewars - these are often very interesting to read
