Could we have a poll on that ?

This forum is paid for by Cycling UK.
And who pays for Cycling UK? We do, the members, the users. WE pay for the upkeep of the forum, therefore we the members have a say in how it's run, AND how it's moderated. I'm sorry but your sanctimonious attitude absolutely stinks.
People power said 6/0 to no political threads over the festivities, but because that goes against YOUR sensibilities you casually delete the entire thread.
Explain yourself please?
The thread wasn't deleted. It was combined with the other thread about banning politics viewtopic.php?f=15&t=111000&hilit=xmas&start=195#p1079723
Sanctimonious attitude? This forum isn't a platform for free speech. Graham's point was that this forum is primarily for matters relating to Cycling UK, which means cycling, bikes, campaigning, and related topics. There have been no particular objections to other topics in The Tea Room, and that has been largely left up to forum members and moderators.
If you don't like it, please complain to the national office, but stop starting threads about the moderation. They will be combined.
