Some users are asking me not to hijack other threads with this topic so I'll create my own thread for it here . Let's have a poll
  
Do you think the mods deleted Barrys posts?

If Barry created a new account and emailed the mods letting them know it was him, if they then deleted that account or refused to activate it, would people see that as an admission that the mods have in fact banned him from the forum? If it truly was a software glitch and the user affected tried creating a new account, there would be no reason to reject it.
You’ve just accepted that there is a possibility that the mods have a genuine reason not to discuss the ‘Barry thing’. Hallelujah!


This is what I mean about people not arguing in good faith. You're trying to catch me out and "win" the argument rather than reading what I've said in the full context. Yes I said there is a possibility that the mods might have a genuine reason for silence. But I then went on to say that I think it's extremely unlikely that such a possibility has occurred. The circumstances in which a gagging order might be issued don't seem applicable to Barry's situation.


Edited slightly to tidy up a sentence.


No Kess, I’m not ‘trying to catch you out’. Stop playing the victim. I pointed out your acknowledgment that their may be circumstances which justify their silence. That’s not done in ‘bad faith’, whatever spin you put on it.


Then why did you leave out what I said immediately afterwards, that the possibility was extremely unlikely? It felt like you were being intentionally misleading. Yes, I do acknowledge that in theory there are circumstances which might justify the mods silence, but that doesn't mean those circumstances are likely, or even remotely realistic.


You didn’t say it was ‘extremely unlikely’, just that you ‘doubted it’. That was your first admission that there may be other circumstances at play. Thus far you seem unable to acknowledge that there are further possibilities that you have not considered, but at least you’ve moderated your position by introducing a hint of doubt at long last.

Anyhow, I’ve allowed my self-isolation to get to me. Far too much interaction from me on this thread, and I’m leaving it alone for a while.

I've always acknowledged that in theory there are technically other possibilities. But they are so extremely unrealistic and unlikely that I don't consider them credible theories at all. I think the mods deleted Barry's posts possibly at the request of the Trust. It is the only thing that makes sense, and I cannot think of any other plausible explanation.

A few questions for the mods

How much are you paying for EasyDiscuss support? Was it a one off payment of $79?

You've been aware that Barry's posts are missing and that he can't login since at least October 2020. If you didn't do that to him, what action have you taken in the last nine months to try and resolve the matter for him so that he's able to post here again?

I think the Trust asked you to delete Barry's posts because of the controversial stuff he posted. Don't have any issue with you deciding to get rid of his posts. We all knew what Barry was like and how offensive his posts could be. What concerns me is the rumours that the Trust played a part in this decision. This is supposed to be an independent forum where the club has no influence. If the Trust are allowed a say in the moderation of this forum, then I feel that independence is undermined.

Most people are fed up of me going on about this. But they aren't supporting you either. If you look closely at what people are saying, even the ones who think I should shut up about it generally aren't actually disagreeing with what I think. They think you probably deleted his posts too, they are just fed up of me going on about it.

Maybe you feel that by denying it at the start, you backed yourself into a corner and think we'll criticize you if you now admit to lying. I personally wouldn't criticize. We all make mistakes and maybe you were just doing what you thought was best at the time. If you just tell us what's really happened, I think people would respect that the honesty.

The questions are reasonable. The matter can be dropped once we get honesty about what has happened to Barry's posts. Not a second sooner.

Here Kes - what is this I hear about Kessler.com or something - I hope this will not escalate into you getting your 'thruppenny bits' out for a small subscription fee and to attract more people signing to your site.

It will turn into 'Carry On Kessler' before you know it, naked 'Question Time' and everything.

Say what you want about the moderators on this site and Griff but they haven't stooped to this level....yet....

Sorry Griff If I don't have the same sense of humour that you like but occasionally gets you banned and reinstated in your place . Ps I wasn't at Wembley but can't answer for the mods or JN, largely due to the fact I don't know them .
Deleted. Why do I bother with this shite?

It was calling Kessler a clown and coco that I was referring to. No need for it.

Can people not just ignore this now and leave it to it or let it just slip down the board?

Enough off this surely?

It's thekessler.net, basically a light hearted joke imitation of this forum. It's just in the development stages, and I haven't pushed it to a "live" server yet.

People will only need to pay a subscription fee if they disagree with my opinion on things :D

Was it Diversity Jim who approached the mods asking them to delete Barry's posts?


Diversity Jim, the Champion Of Inclusion, who believes so passionately in political correctness that he waited a full 7 days after the first fans forum to start insulting a moderator about their weight.


Valid reason for edit: corrected a spelling mistake in "passionately"

You need to concentrate. It's Nigel D who is the person for that . Ps maybe you did it with your extensive software knowledge but are just trying to fire out chaff to stop suspicion .

I once left one of my servers publicly accessible on the internet with the root account having the password "changeme". That alone shows us conclusively that I'm not smart enough to hack the board and delete Barry's posts :D

Mullen before you shake your head in shame at that, I was meaning to change it but forgot and then only remembered when the inevitable happened and a Russian IP accessed it and caused carnage :p

Everyone’s done it!

I had my chicken program hacked as I didn’t change the default password. Russians again. A long weekend restoring it!

It’s why I’m paying out for a AWS specialist as we’ve won a big contract in Singapore and our skills aren’t great on that.

Have you ever tried using Xojo? I’ve used it to create an app, it’s so easy that you could probably create your own messageboard app with cms.
