"Since we do not do our moderation in public here on CF, you wouldn't know what goes on behind the scenes. "
Hud, you should know better. That's invalid logic, your "conclusion" has nothing to do with your premise. I may not be privy to everything
behind the scenes but I do have some
first hand knowledge of some of it, including the express statements (plural) from mods that truth is no defense when something offends the moderators, and similar statements about what may or may not be said nations.
Of course, I should (pardon the subjective and judgemental word) have no need to be concerned with any of that, the forum's RULES button covers it all.
I mistook Gord for a moderator because he used to be a moderator/administrator (wasn't he?) and I hadn't realized he'd stepped down from that role. That's why I questioned him about policies,
not realizing he was no longer a part of them.
My apologies for the confusion.
I'm unclear, and I suspect that everyone outside of your staff may be unclear, why it is proper to discuss and publicize a US government
proclamation about the dangers of Somalia
and the Horn, while discussion of similar US statements about similar danger
in other nations is not proper.
