    Because even though it is convenient to those of us who aren't abusive jerks, it is just as convenient to those who are.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

      It can give a Troll some extra time by changing his name and avatar.

        A jerk with a new username is still the same jerk. Seriously, who cares?

        The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

          A new name and avatar doesn't fool the "ignore" function.

                    And now a thread simply deleted by the WebTeam, without any explanation. This place is getting worse by the day...

                      I can probably guess, but which one?

                          Not surprising nor unexpected. If anything, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. No great loss.

                            They could have locked it with the standard copy-paste explanation, or moved it to another section.

                            Simply erasing and pretending it never existed, and not giving any info about why it was erased, is bull.

                            This board could really use some actual moderation by people who have some experience with this sort of medium.

                              Small problem. As I recall, it contained several posts that could be considered libelous. The whole thread was, after all, a gratuitous troll against you-know-who. Personally, I would have nipped it in the bud after the first post.

                              I don't always agree with the moderation style here but I've seen far worse. If they made a mistake with that thread it was allowing it to grow at all in the first place.

                              Frankly, it's their board, they're entitled to run it however they please. Nothing they do is going to make everyone happy. FH, like most fora, is a "Pedal Democracy." Every single user has the option to vote with their feet.

                                Webteam Response

                                All,

                                The threads were simply moved to another location that is not open to all members and therefore without a redirect link. We wanted to give all the opportunity to vent so we could move on with what is important here - Firefighting and Firefighters.

                                Our process was not meant to anger or upset anyone but we wanted to allow members to respond without our interference. At this point, we are hoping all can move on and get back to what we are all about - Firefighting.

                                With that, we are closing this thread.

                                Firehouse Web Manager
