That's it, exactly!

But yes, I understand your frustration.  Hopefully it won't be for too long.

Surely that's a more productive use of your time?

Surely if they post anything disapproved of it can just be removed?


Ah, but Lennie, not everyone behaves themselves like you, nor are as wise as you, and if a Mod isn't around to moderate the naughtiness then they get away with it until the prefects arrive back.  It's worked well for now, but I realise it's frustrating for those who are on pre-mod.  Hopefully Bernard (that still seems odd when we have 'our' Bernie in bnabernard, but I'm sure we'll get used to it), will prove himself to be a trusted poster and won't be on pre-mod for too long.  


But even if they "get away with it" until corrected, what harm is done? They are hardly likely to reveal any state secrets!

If you are in a position to do just that, Bernard, you would be well advised to do so.

Posting here is just something to do when you can't think of anything better.

Take it up with Lexi.  

Personally I think pre-mod's a good idea - stops spammers in their tracks and it's a small price to pay, albeit a frustrating price to pay, for new posters.   Rarely are our newbies so chatty as Bernard, so it's never been a great issue.

Bernard: meet 'our' Bernie.  Our Bernie's one of my favourites, but don't tell him 'cos he may get big-headed.

Normally it wouldn't bother me, but since Bernard appears to have been a past forum friend I was intrigued, and frustrated by meeting the  gagging message in every post he made.

However, I confess I am warming to his style, but would still like to know who he was before.

If you think it might be confusing me and this other chap being called Bernard I'd be quite happy to change my name to something else like Mr Spoke or whatever before it's too late.
