    Exclamation Let me say something about the moderation on this board

    This may put some things into perspective for those who have grumped about it in the past. The full level of moderation on the MS forum I just joined is insane.

    The board is rated ďGĒ. Even the word ďassĒ shows up as asterisks. Come on man, I think that word is even printed out in the bible.

    Private messaging is turned off.

    You canít post an external link or even a picture hosted on your very own web site.

    Each and every post you have to wait for a mod to read it before it is displayed. Iíve had numerous post edited or not allowed because of forum rules.

    If you even try to question somebody on it they wonít let the post go through or may even delete the entire thread if someone else grumps about it too.

    I wonít be an active member there for long, I can see it now. Itís a very informative site for me to learn how to deal with MS but their Gestapo-like moderation is killing me. This might put things into perspective for those of you that have complained about your civil liberties being violated around here.


    Praise the Lord and pass the salt for SpeedGuide.

    I wonder if that domain name is registered yet? It might be, but related to Microsoft and not to Multiple Sclerosis.

    For a group of people hit so hard by this disease, they have no sense of humor what-so-ever. As sad as it may seem, the internet is about my only communication with the outside world. Becoming a recent shut-in with them taking my drivers license away is a very bitter pill to swallow.

    While waiting for a post to clear the mods, I got this message, after going to the bathroom and noticing an error I made.

    The administrator has specified that you can only edit messages for 15 minutes after you have posted. This limit has expired, so you must contact the administrator to make alterations on your message.
    Iím sorry but having to ask permission to fix my own errors is asinine. Iím really shouldnít be grumping about another board on here but Iím trying to inform others it could be much, much worse around here.

    That does seem odd that they have it set up that way. Sure they have their reasons although for the life of me I have no idea what they are.

    I’ve always been a crazy legs kind of man, the kind that go straight up and make a perfect ass of themselves.

    Lately I’ll take my jollies any way I can get them.
