so your saying no moderation is good moderation..

the post WAS NOT an opinion whatsoever relating to what was asked.

a site thats supposed to promote Scotland allows people to tell others not to come or not to ask about it cause we're "pissed off" with them.

no need to repeat what you already said n nothing to do with free speech....

i wonder why its so quiet when people make one post n get told to f'off

great work guys

I'm with you, Tig. It's implictly racist and quite unacceptable.

I would recommend that you take your concerns regarding interpretation of said post to Admin. They should have the final call over this kind of debate.

In my opinion, it's not racist as it doesn't target a people, it comments upon a country. But I am happy to accept what Admin decides about it.

While I agree it's not the nicest statement ever made about the British or European politics, it stands as someone's political opinion comment. It is not making a statement about your opinions, but the poster's. It's not a Mods job to change someone's opinion but to make sure the post follows the site's use policy. In checking and comparing against the use policy I can assure that moderation was done, but I understand that you wouldn't just know that.

@ tig

Babz and Kathy do an excellent job of moderating the forums and the Scotland.com support team agrees fully with their decision to leave the post in question and their reasons for doing so.

Having said that, we value your participation, sense of humour and helpfulness in the forums and hope we can move past this disagreement.

Best wishes
Scotland.com Support Team
