I removed two off-topic, ad hominem attack posts in the Responding 1H with 3 card Major thread in the Laws & Rulings forum.

Moved the "Mentors" thread from Water Cooler (which isn't supposed to be about Bridge/BBO) to "Find a Partner/Teacher" (a mentor is a kind of teacher).

Moved the thread about the Turkish cheating ruling from Water Cooler to General Bridge Discussion, since it's about bridge.

Removed a topic from General Bridge Discussion for using an inflammatory title.

I can sympathise with this deletion but what constitutes an inflammatory title is quite subjective. If the title and content is factually misleading and inaccurate I would be more inclined to ban it. However, the OP in question linked to an article with the facts of the case so in my honest opinion the deletion was ott. I really hope it was not my doing by mentioning the BW mods! The mods at Bridgewinners err on the side of deleting posts and I think this is totally the wrong approach. In their favour I will say that they are very good at suspending trolls once their behaviour is established. They got rid of one particularly poisonous poster there and then subsequently banned him when he posted under a pseudonym.

I will add that I appreciate that this forum has this thread so that mods get accountability when they delete. Thanks.

Your post had nothing to do with it. I found it borderline, and discussed with other mods then we decided to remove. The title was fake and misleading. We have no problem with the discussion itself, the headline used by the poster was the problem.

You're welcome to post or link to anything bridge related or not, but when doing so, choose a title that does not grossly misrepresent the facts.

What has happened to the new topic which was titled "Top bridge players convicted of gross tax fraud"?

But please feel free to lie as much as you want when posting to the thread because we don't give a rat's ass about that...

In all seriousness, if you're going to start getting rid of threads just because the titles are a little overblown, how about getting rid of the actual trolls starting with Al-U-Card?
This feels arbitrary at best.

Edited the "Whatever happened to Relaxed" thread to remove the vulgar subtitle.
