All the threads that were removed are in the archives that may be reopened at a later time. As was stated before, some people came on to certain threads to spew insults and to further disrupt the reasonings. The threads were removed and those few posters were banned.
People can praise what they want but the website will not tolerate the slanderous attacks on moderators and administrators even if everyone else disagrees and feel that a few should provide this service and allow a few others to disrespect US.
The stern reply to that poor conduct was an emphatic NO. I support the administrators and moderators 100% as I have personally seen the disrespect and poor conduct. The website is bent on showing that respect for this service is important to sustaining it.
All who disagree and feel that their right to free speech should include irresponsible slander, threats and attacks on the site are of no use to us and the African collective irrespective of how rosy their rhetoric is.
