One of the staff suggested yesterday that we give posting this report a try. Why not. This is a report of those threads pulled or restored yesterday. This does not include in it threads removed as the result of a returning bannee or troll being nuked.

If there are questions about these, I'll be glad to answer. I am not here 24/7 so don't be impatient if it takes a while for me to reply.

I'll use this opportunity to also talk about the effort that has been being made on the immigration threads to rein in the excesses. Simply put, there have been localized successes and some people have been helping out, but overall I can't say it has been a success. The threads are back to getting so bad that some are being backroomed or pulled, albeit at a lesser rate than before we started this effort. Unfortunately, we are starting to have people ask for their accounts to be deactivated because of the crap.

For those who have been helping, thanks. And I am going to continue for a few more days taking random threads on the topic and going through them to tell people when I think their posts were problematic- maybe we can get to the point where the backrooming of threads can stop totally. But right now if things continue, it is more likely that that will increase, not decrease.

TOTALLY the opposite intent. Their intent is to help us understand why certain threads went buhbye. I think this is a good service. It will help us spot trends. It's only intended to help the forum, Glenn.

Ignore me. I could care less. I know you are out there working tirelessly with only anecdotal appreciation to show for it. A "report" like this is an ego trip, IMHO. Carry on with it if it makes you feel better. I think a better thing to do is work in the shadows whilst doing your job. You know, be humble but firm.
