I'm missing something. What's the reason Fatmanfilms is being accused of it, out of curiosity? Last time I checked, loads of people are mod's. Why's Fatmanfilms being singled out please?
Because he is the Marmite Mod

After 14 years, it is with a certain amount of sadness, I have decided to delete my account.

There are all kinds of people here, some educate and inform, some make me laugh, some make me shake my head and some annoy me for a few minutes. But there is one thing that keeps me annoyed - racism in any format.

In the past 24 hours, a member with a reputation for being contraversal posted a blatant racist statement. The post was deleted and the poster goes on his merry way to sin again...

After all that has gone on around the world over the past few months, the fact that the mods seem to feel continuing to enable this kind of behaviour is acceptable, is beyond me and I have decided that a community moderated in such a style is one I no longer want to be a member of.
Hi Jim, I am sorry to read this post and that you're deleting your account. Like you I was shocked when I came across that disgraceful racist comment. I also responded to the thread asking the mods to intervene. The post must have been still on there for quite some time. Like others have posted, the forum has to be free from racist comments. My only question would be what are the consequences for the poster of the comment?

Re: Deleting My Account

And who is this group that you are speaking of? Do you really think that MC and FMF have orchestrated all of the events of the last weeks in order to make the EF a better place for the 10-15 of us who lean to the right? Talk about a conspiracy theory!

No, but I do know that a single mod's decision can be outvoted and over-ridden by the group.

Do you honestly believe a single moderator acting alone could unban people who were premaritally banned & get away with it on any day other than April 1st?
EF's power influences marriages now ? Truly impressive.

If that had occurred, then you could be happy in the knowledge that a majority of the mods had agreed to the changes. However as I wrote earlier Editor Bob did the un banning.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
I don’t see any right wing posters or posts on here. Leaning right is pretty accurate actually.
The most extreme is a bit right of center, more David Cameron than Enoch Powell.

Every one of them, without exception.
I think that includes all of those in mixed race marriages as well.
As is tradition, someone else then became grossly offended on their behalf.
Then the two sides lined up.

Presumably, all the mods are acquiescent with this unbanning as nobody has been banned again despite the fact that some of the current mods were in accord with the original banning?

If you like something read it, if you don’t move along. No point in throwing the toys out of the pram. There is no moral high ground on the internet.

And includes members of the National Democratic Party of Germany a far-right and Neo-Nazi political party that even managed to elect an MEP in recent times.

I would not know if they were in accord with the original banning, perhaps they were being bullied or said nothing for fear of being bullied.

Really interested how Blueangel knows so much of the workings of the modzone.

I don't believe so, as the bullies were put out to pasture so to speak.
