Phil and I would like to apologize for some of the post which slipped thru last night. We had a member who was unhappy about a moderator and decided to post an EXTREMELY offensive personal attack. The vulgarity of the post has resulted in the member being deleted and permanently banned from this community.
I have also been in contact with the persons ISP and Microsoft as the posts are in violation of their Terms of Service; TerraForums is seeking termination of this persons' accounts with both providers.
This may seem "heavy handed" this may be "censoring the free flow of ideas" but its not - this is protecting everyone from posts which have no merit and were exposing our younger members to language that was blatantly unacceptable.
Once again - to those who were unfortunate enough to read the post, to the person who was targeted, and to all of our membership we apologize for allowing this to happen and I want to thank the moderators for catching this so quickly!
Now lets get back to the reason we are here - futhering the discussion of carnivorous plants.
