Overzealous moderators shifting posts?

Post by james01 »

I've just had my "Cat saves boy cyclist from dangerous dog" moved from "On the road" to "Tea shop" section. This is the second time in recent days that I've had a post interfered with :( , I thought for a moment it had disappeared completely.
The "Tea shop" section is described as "non-cycling related chat". What is non-cycling about a child on a bike?
(PS: I wonder where moderator is going to move this rant to :D ).

It wasn't on the road, it was on his front garden ;)

Moderators tend not to be overzealous, it's too much work.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.

Perhaps it got chased off this board by a moderator's overprotective cat :mrgreen: .

I once 'lost my rag' big-time over a moved post (not on this forum, I hasten to add). And flounced off. But there was a bit more to it than just having a post moved...

I think I've mellowed a bit, since. :? And my hair is greyer.

I'm sure the forum allows for a moved post signpost to be left. makes it more obvious, and here it would drop off the front page fairly fast

This thread is getting around the boards a bit; this must be the third so far.

Does that qualify it for inclusion on Touring and Expedition? :twisted:

I'll give the mods a biscuit in exchange for moving it to "Swaps, trades, etc" :wink:

This is turning into a forum version of Mornington Crescent and it looks to be catching on. :roll:

Talking of empty glass, I'm in a boozer in Swindon, and my glass is empty.
I must go and sort this problem out.
