Response to a Comment from a moderator

Unlike some I have no fear of criticism and am prepared to answer those criticisms, after all are we not adults?

I received a comment from what would appear to be one of the moderators, why the felt they needed to post an anonymous comment is beyond me, are they afraid to stand by their decisions? I can understadn why people who crticise the forum are anonymous as they don’t want a secretly compiled dossier to reach their PSD in revenge.

Perhaps if there are any legal eagles out there could let us know what the implications for these secret reports are when dealing with RIPA, DPA and the HRA?

I will now answer the post piece by piece:

For someone who doesn't like the site, the moderators or the host, you seem to spend a lot of time on there, digging for information and then ranting about it on here.

It is not the site I dont like, it is the underhand, bullying attitude of the host and some of the moderators, a few of them are actually quite normal and I enjoy catching up with them when I have managed to get to a social, any and all criticism on the forum is deleted rather than dealt with in an adult manner, by posting it on a separate medium other people can see the hypocrisy of some of the people on there, there are rules telling people that inappropriate language or comments would not be tolerated, but they are if a moderator does it.

Everything in this blog is backed up by individual people and also pm's and pages I have saved demonstrating this.

There is nothing wrong with the site, it has plenty of members and plenty of posts each day. There are other Police sites to be used if people don't like this one.

When you have moderators who bully people, compile what could potentially be illegal investigations of people, monitoring IPS not to mention passing on personal information to third parties, not to mention moderators advocating the police commit criminal acts then I would say yes there is something wrong. People are often told on there that a police officer cant have an off duty and on duty opinion, if that is the case, why are the standards that one would hope ALL the moderators use whilst on duty are applied when off duty, are people that insecure that they cant handle the criticism?

I'm sure you were impressed with the hits you had on your website at the start, but I'm sure that will soon die down once they all get bored of your rants.

It wouldn’t appear so, judging by the number of hits and the comments that have been made, it would seem there is allot of interest, why are you scared? Like me, many of the people who have made comments actually care about the police service and the oath they took. But after all there has been over 1640 hits so far, and close to 1000 have been since I mentioned the threat I recieved.

Good luck with you legal proceedings, would love to see how far you actually get

What legal proceedings are you on about, I am not the one who threatened it.

Maybe this post will appear, maybe it won't
All the best

I am man enough to accept that not everyone thinks the same way as me, that’s why your comment has been posted and I have replied to it personally, perhaps there are some on the forum who could take a lesson from this.

That anonymous moderator needs to remember to wipe his bottom before using a keyboard...he tended to write a lot of crap.

Keep up the good work Mr. Blackpool!

If there is nothing wrong with the site, then why have so many people posted comments on here?

Could it be a case of sour grapes because on here people can say teh truth withouhg being censored?

Why are so many people that bothered that a moderated forum is censored? That's like going to McDonalds and moaning they sell fast food.

As to the "secret reports" the blogger keeps referring to, if they're secret how does he know about them?
I haven't seen anything on the specials site about this blog so, presumably, they're keeping a dignified silence. Here there are random accusations without any supporting evidence.

I hate to say it but I'm leaning towards this being a case of, at the very least, both parties being as bad as each other and it's teetering in to believing the only sour grapes are from outside the specials thing.
