I edited a post in the worst play section to remove the names of the players involved from the links (essentially, I edited the links -- removing all the player names).

This made fun of the player involved, for no reason other than to ridicule. I probablly should have deleted the post but there was some discussion afterwards that might have value, so I went with the edit.

A poll with answers 1S, 2S, and 3S was edited to reflect 1H, 2H, and 3H which is what was meant to be asked.

A thread about connecting to BBO via satellite communication was moved from General Bridge Discussion to BBO support.

I moved one thread by a new member from General bridge discussion to general BBO discussion.

I deleted on tasteless thread from the water cooler, and I am not even moderator of water cooler and tend not to read that forum.

Nah, I had decided to leave it at that. Sent him a PM with: http://en.wikipedia....Have_a_nice_day as the body text, and moving on.

Any idea who that really is?
Yay for the "Ignored Users" feature!

I got rid of "the ACBL unjustly fired my friends" thread.

Besides the personal attacks that were contained in this thread, I do not think it is an appropriate topic for discussion on these Forums.

Good move Fred, however when a statement/explanation says, "I do not think..." is that a questionable reason??

I truly like this forum. ;)

One of the moderators, not sure who, removed a post entitled "Bridge Books Play - Overview!! Bridge Books Play - Overview!!"

At the very least, the link in that post was "broken".

One user has been banned and his "replies" to topics unapproved (this means the system automatically hides such replies). I did not unapprove his "topics", because if I did, all replies to them would have been hidden as well. The user was banned because he is not a real BBO online member. He created his account there to post here. He only was logged into the gaming site once and played no hands. The same day, a minute after he created his online identity, he logged in here to post 100% cut-and-paste questions from this and other forums.

I am posting this info here, simply because I might have hidden (essentially deleted) a reply or two by this user in some post. Should you be that user and are no longer able to post in the forum and have a reasonable explaination for your action, you can write to me at inquiry at bridgebase dot com.

Two post were edited in the Beginner/Intermediate forum (and any post quoting either). The first edited post pointed out the view of the author that the original poster should have bid earlier. Then added a common reason for such "misbid" (someone else sat in on that round of the bidding). The original poster didn't agree with the view that there should have been an earlier bid, and took offense at how the person who filled in for one round of bidding was described (never read victor mollo I guess).

Anyway, the point is the Beginner/Intermediate forum should allow people to post without even the vague appearance that their post is being made fun of. We were all beginners at one time, and asking question and getting answers in that forum needs to be open and without fear of being made to look silly, wrong, or whatever... So I felt the need to step in without changing the gist of the discussion was necessary.

A thread in the water cooler correctly identified by Jlall as spam has been removed, as has the spammer.
