I managed to get myself banned (moderated!) from Surreybirders yahoo group today. I did something called cross posting- I don't even know what that is. But nontheless it is a zero tolerance offence.

From observing recent discussion on this forum it was apparant that the 'moderators' were trying to limit free and open debate. I thought the whole point of an internet discussion group is that you can delete the messages you are not interested in. So banned or not- not a very interesting forum where discussion is censored and limited to what a small group of people decide is interesting.

I was only talking about Ruddy Ducks- I think that is even allowed in North Korea. Ha ha.
