Message 414510 - Posted: 4 Sep 2006, 7:09:12 UTC

I wrote a nice post to a UK MP who joined the BBC CCE forum and they deleted it??? So I emailed the MP (Nick Palmer, Member of Parliament for Broxtowe);

-------------------------------------------------
Mr. Palmer,

I am a member of the BBC Climate Change Experiment forum and using my computers to participate in this experiment.

I placed a comment on this forum, in reply to your question “It's not quite free...” and the moderators have deleted it (censorship in an open BBC public forum???).
Perhaps you can reply to me in private, or in the open forum? http://bbc.cpdn.org/forum_thread.php?id=4656

It's a shame that we have an MP amongst us who doesn't seem to want to acknowledge answers given to his question. Maybe it's because he's too busy looking for something else to support other than the Iraq war. Oh yes, school toilets.

David Cameron (Leader of the Opposition) has turned up the volume on emissions law. Perhaps your lot should at least acknowledge the need to do something about Climate Change Mr Palmer, like, I mean, mention it in parliament and raise it above concern for school toilets?

You can read the MP's reply "the email bafflingly accused me of being preoccupied with Iraq and school toilets..."

(This is more about the BBC moderators deleteing my question from this thread, so I decided to email the MP direct, and this was his reply to the BBC Climate forum.)

Did you ever ask the Admins or Moderators why your post was deleated?

No explanation was given.

This morning I wrote this post, which was promptly deleted, and I received this email from BBC Climate Change Administrator, Oxford University AOPP [boinc@climatedbs3.oucs.ox.ac.uk] as explanation;

BBC Climate Change Experiment notification:

This email is to inform you that one of your posts in the forum has been affected by moderation in BBC Climate Change Experiment:
Thread: It\\'s not quite free...
Link: http://bbc.cpdn.org//forum_thread.php?id=4656

The moderator gave this explanation to why your post was moderated:
Inappropriate to thread

This was the content of your post:

It\\'s OK, I did as Graham suggested, I emailed Mr. Palmer with with my question to him, mentioning censorship in an open BBC public forum.



For further information and assistance with BBC Climate Change Experiment go to http://bbc.cpdn.org/

If this isn't censorship I don't know what is. My original (deleted) post - the first in this thread - was wholly appropriate as an answer to a question an MP had put on the BBC Climate forum. It was deleted with no explanation.

Well, it doesn't surprise me. The BBC has been under a lot of pressure from this government if you remember the whole business around the Andrew Gilligan affair and the death of David Kelly. I think that a British member of this government posting on an open forum is just asking for trouble. Thanks iX for the link to my own special MP, he's a bastard too.

Not much of anything as far as I can see. Kinda like that spat between former team members on one of the other threads.

You're quite right MC, censorship anywhere else has nothing to do with seti@home. I'm just venting my frustration at being victimized by a moderator. Whether it's here in seti@home or somewhere else, censorship is censorship. Thank you Misfit, Censorship Sucks and is a rather disgusting thing to have in BOINC forums.

Robert, it is obvious that Hev's post went way above your head. Allow me to assist you.
She was commenting on Michael's post saying that he did not know what "censorship" had to do with Seti@Home.
Hev was just making the more pertinent point that "Babe of the Day" has nothing to do with Seti@Home either.
See, it's easy when you understand the nuances of the English language ;-))

So....Yes Bodley that is exactly what I meant..

It takes a good man to sense where a man needs to focus his attentions then, Bodley.

I hope you don't mind if I make a point about this. Seti@home may well be about scientifically tuning into aliens, but the seti@home forum itself and content from yourselves such as "Babe of the Day" is what makes it such an attractive forum to participate in.

Ah well, they imposed the imposed a higher level of censorship on me "You may not post or rate messages until Sep 19, 2006"

I have to say that I'm not impressed at all with absolutely no support or comment from 'my' team, The Knights Who Say Ni!. I expect I might be changing my signature shortly.

This was a post the moderators on the BBC forum deleted earlier today (they are not 'BBC moderators', but BOINC moderators on a BBC forum);

(I am replying to a comment by an MP who is posting on the site, but won't be replying again because I am censored from any posts to the entire forum!)

Everything else gets ignored. For instance, my constituency is in outer Nottingham, far from the sea, and I've never been interested in fisheries myself, so my involvement in fisheries issues is absolutely zero. The MP for Grimsby, say, has to get stuck into fisheries policy, even if he doesn't personally care about it, while conversely he probably doesn't give a hoot about open-cast mining, a big issue in my patch.

Is this why Tony Blair lives in England but doesn't give a hoot about Iraq?
