I would hope that with this new found emphasis on board security that both Ayinde and the new moderator will monitor more closely the distractors and detractors and sexually explicit ones who have been allowed free reign of this board (Jah Himmler for instance).
I remember clearly a time, when ones would come on the site and issue threat to a person's being; mine included and go UNCHECKED. When they would speak about my "supposed" location of living and other personal effects and speak in threatening terms of coming to "reason" with me; all the while being very antagonistic.
I remember emailing the "administrators" of this board about my concerns about the fact that although this was a public board that, personal threats and revealing knowledge of knowing where a person lives, was uncalled for.
I NEVER got a response from the board administrators, nor was the person ever censored for inappropriate behavior.
I remember bringing this up to Ayinde, who stated that this was a free board, where any and everyone could post freely; and that this type of interaction was to be expected on this board. In other words, there would be no censoring... and tough luck for those who experience any discomfort on the board.
So this newfound vigilance is well timed and placed. I would only hope that the vigilance be aimed at these types of negative detractors as well as towards those who disagree with Ayinde's or any other moderator's posts (or the intentions behind them) and policies.
