Is there a particular reason for this?

It is an experiment, but if it causes problems for members the settings can easily be changed.

It is hoped that regular guests will be encouraged to join as members and that some will become active members in due course.

What are the views of members?  We can have a poll if necessary.

I already have a login facility which brings me directly on to the forum without the need to log in. Simple

That's cos you never log out Lookout  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

It keeps chucking me out and I have to keep signing back in, but I don't mind. I could change me my setting that would keep me logged in... ;)

I thought it was a stroke of genius  ;)
I think it should remain.
I'm surprised the red forum hasn't done it, having said that I might still be banned  ;D

'Removal of posts on mass' apparently. As far as I were concerned, they broke the truce so I removed several posts from several threads, then posted a rather rude post but it was the removals that did it.

That is a real shame Jo.

I must say though. Hands up to our forum, we pride ourselves for stamping out any attacks that are signposted towards anyone on the red forum.  Maybe sometimes we are to strict but at least we can hold our heads up and say we are not the bullying kind in return.

OK we are not so squeaky clean we have our own in-house arguments, but when it gets really tough we try to stamp it out the best we can.

No one likes their posts editing or removed it can cause friction between moderators and members, but at the end of the day its the only way to keep peace and stop further arguments.  However, I do believe in freedom of speech and sometimes its difficult for me to suppress it when things get personal.  Its the way it is and its the way forward; otherwise we have a disruptive forum that no one would to join.

You're very welcome here Jo, we don't bite honest.  ;D ;D ;D
