I'm not sure what he means about 'observing'.  But if a member removes their own post, I think there is no record of that removal anywhere.  He seems to be indicating that two or more members are working in tandem to to take screen shots of posts that are posted and then removed by one of the same?

That's what I thought but I can't understand what that would achieve? I might be missing something though?

Some members have had access to passwords of others, and have been editing posts made by these members, to include abusive comments, reposting the edited posts altered by them, copied using a screen capture, before being deleted...

Hope you understand this explanation...

The perpetrators end up with a post in the name of an adversary in the form of a screen capture, which can later be attributed to the adversary - what the perpetrators have also been doing, is editing posts of their own using the same ploy, to make it appear as though what was obtained via the screen capture method, is linked or associated to the same subject (these edited posts made by the perpetrators have also been deleted, before any moderator had chance to see the edited posts on the forum), none of the screen captured material can be linked to any IP address, when checked by moderators, because the edited posts have been altered, posted, captured, and removed before a moderator saw them, leaving it open to the perpetrators to allege that moderators have been removing posts without reason or explanation, etc...

Some members who have been using these techniques, have been able to present a case for moderators favoring other members over the perpetrators, creating a false picture about what has really been going on...

Think I understand but can this be proven?
