    I don't think you're aloud to say that.
    Do you want to get banned?

    I don't want to call any names...but I do think that the mods are not doing a good job. They seem to close any thread which they don't like.

    For example, my thread "Ganguly's achievements" was closed for no reason just because one of the mods felt he'd had enough.

    Another thread which was closed for no reason was the "Warne and Murali issue" thread.

    All this is driving me away from cw more and more....hence very less posts from me compared to before.....

    They are always closed for a reason.

    So it had nothing to do with preventing a flame war from the extremely abusive post then?

    There was plenty of reason - duplicate thread for one thing!
    And racism another.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Yeah they were always closed for a reason. The reason being, Moderator Mr. X did not like so and so topic. It didn't matter what others felt.

    There was just one extremely abusive post. No need to close an entire thread because of that. That particular post could have been deleted.

    It was not a duplicate thread. It was not discussing who was better between Murali and Warne. Instead, it was a discussion on the basis/criteria for selection of Warne over Murali.

    Erm no, there's more to it than that.

    And you think it would stop at one post from that member?

    It was racism, and Murali and Warne threads are duplicates.

    What, moderators doing their jobs?

    This forum has very, very few threads closed compared to most other forums.

    No, moderators closing interesting threads that have, or are likely to, stimulate intelligent converstion.

    P.S. I have no problems with the conduct of moderators such as Top Cat, James, Rich2001 and Mr Mxyzptlk.
