But what makes the moderator(s)who "decide" on what's right or wrong correct?Using the "cool" emoji at the end of that sentence speaks volumes
Moderators are a bit like Magistrates.....both have some superiority complex and always believe they are correct(IMO) and woe betide anyone who dares to question their "authority"

Fine...in theory but:-
Insults:-Open to interpretation.One persons insult is another persons banter.
Swearing:-?Where do you start?I know folk who think "damn" is unacceptable!"Swearing" is just part of language.If you don't like it don't use it.Personally i don't regard any word as a "swear" word.
Threats:-How can a "threat" on a (mostly) anonymous Forum be considered a "threat"at all
As I've stated many times there are too many "offended/outraged/incensed/hurt/insulted/wounded/and generally too fragile to be on the internet" people posting.The main problem is the Mods seem to cater for these types as a default setting
How some folk cope in the real World bewilders me at times
