@trev33said they often don’t reply to questions as to why one post is deleted and other seemingly worse posts are left alone.
Needless back and forth about why a forum post has been removed is unlikely to happen, and even less so in the future if the process is to be streamlined somewhat. Hopefully more of the worst offenders will be removed in future.

Debates about censorship and moderation are rarely needless, it’s that attitude which has caused this situation.
Understand it’s a difficult one, on one hand people want to be able to freely express themselves but there’s obviously a line and that line has always been pushed that little bit further in debates.
@keggesaid Because it doesn't exist. You should take it to the spirituality forums instead.
This persons caption under his name is offensive, a-politically correct terminology. They are also calling for an action of violence against this particular group of individuals. Force them to remove it.
@no1maraudersaid I'd prefer non-subscribers have less influence over Debates not more. Perhaps they should be limited to a certain number of posts and/or participation in a limited number of threads per week/month.
Many of the most toxic and disruptive posters in Debates have no "skinny" in the game and some periodically start new usernames. It would be nice if something was done to control these problems.
And I'm not talking about these 60 day wonders either. I see long-time posters
that are quite toxic who are non-subscribers that do nothing to support the site
and much to tear it down.
A limit to the number of posts per week for non-subscribers would be fine with me.
@russsaid When it returns, the process for alerting posts will be improved and open to all, rather than just subscribers.
I would encourage all to alert posts that they find objectionable when it returns.
You might want to restrict non-subscriber accounts from alerting more than 5 posts per week, or month or whatever time period seems appropriate, to stop people opening accounts for the purpose of mass alerting of posts against people they don't like. Your system needs to be robust against denial of service type attacks.
Also, when the games modding system was first introduced you sent everyone a reminder of their responsibilities under the Terms of Service. It might be worth doing something like that again with regard to posting in the forums.
