    Bureaucracy = Hypocrisy?

    I just have a few qualms about how Off Topic is being run.

    In the thread Recent Posts/Threads in Off Topic, which is sticked at the top of Off Topic, James mentions this:
    Quote Originally Posted by James

    Now, I will use an example which is indicative of something that occurs quite often in Off Topic. No way am I singling out a particular member of CW, and thus will not reveal his/her name. Anyway, this is how one particular exchange went:

    Quote Originally Posted by Anonymous CW Member

    To which James replied:

    My query is why these rules are in place if they are not going to be enforced by James and his fellow moderators? I am not saying that I necessarily agree with the rules, but if they are there I cannot see why people get away with breaking them. I just want a bit of clarification on what policy the moderating team at CW is taking if they are not punishing people like the rules of the forum state they should?

    By the way, interesting to see no response from any member of the moderating team as of yet. Obviously sticking to the old adage: if you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

    I do, but if it is out of date and no longer applicable surely it does not belong at the top of Off Topic as a stickied/stuck (not sure which word to use) thread.
