Australiens - Moderation, Complaints, etc.

Hi Guys!

Every now and then, like every other busy forum in the existence of the internet, people complain when something they post or talk about is deleted or locked. This happens on all forums, don't fool yourself into thinking it only happens here. I think you'll find this forum is moderated less than possibly ANY other forum you can find.

We get complaints from people who say we dont moderate the forum enough. We also get complaints from people who say we moderate the forum too much. It's always going to be the case that not everyone is happy.

At the end of the day, the reality is, this forum and website is here because we have spent time, energy and money to bring it into existence and keep it running, and have for the last 5 years. We do this because from day one, we wanted to PROVIDE a community for all things psytrance. This has grown to involve a LOT of people, and is a place where a LOT of people get their information about parties etc at. This is a *FREE* community created with positive intent, FOR the psytrance community.

So as much as you'd like to believe, we're not Nazi's or dictators or people here with the purpose of 'ruining' your free speech. And to be honest with you, it's quite disappointing when people question the site and show complete lack of respect towards the effort put into it, and attack us regularily, all because you can't speak about (in this case) illegal substances.

So here's how it is: We make the decisions we feel are right, based on what we think is best for this entire community to continue in the best way possible. We try and make them right, some may be wrong, but we make them, and they will stick.
