The following appeared at the beginning of a thread: 'Do not come into this thread if you are going to say something nasty and hateful. That's not what this thread is about. Two such hate-filled threads have already been deleted. Please have some respect----or simply stay out of the thread if you cannot. Thank you...' http://www.politicalforum.com/1061062777-post1.html Are others allowed to set strict limits on thread content that they create (like 'no negative/disrespectful posts allowed - either stay on topic or stay out of this thread') and have the mods erase posts/parts of posts that do not meet that criteria? Or do only mods (like the one who started the above thread) get that privilege?
