Guest Posted July 24, 2005 Share Posted July 24, 2005 Yesterday both John Simkin and myself received the following communication form the schoolhistory forum As from 5pm 22nd July 2005 you are being put on Permanent Moderation on the History Teachers' Discussion Forum.This is because we are distressed about a series of unfounded accusations that are creating confusion and breeding mistrust. We have no wish to be part of such actions. We earnestly welcome your contributions which fit into our stated teaching and learning ethos, and wish them to continue. However we are not prepared to allow the negative and unhelpful postings that you have often engaged in and which detract from the aims of the forum. We are very upset that this stage has been reached and regret this situation. Nevertheless, following the lead set by other online forums it has been necessary to take this action. The Administration Team History Teachers' Discussion Forum It appears we are being accused of spreading "unfounded accusations" about persons unspecified and of making "negative posts" again unspecified. This is too bizarre and too paranoid for words. John and I have been staunch supporters of the schoolhistory forum throughout and have made a siginificant contribution to its success. I am afraid that given the weirdness of the behaviour of some of its moderators recently its success will be severely limited in the future. I for one am so disgusted by this turn of events that I have demanded that my account be deleted from the schoolhistory forum and that any suggestion that my website is in anyway associated with it be deleted from its banner. So far the administrators haven't had the courtesy to carry out this simple task. Administrators, moderators and members of the schooolhistory forum will remain as ever welcome to contribute to the Education Forum. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
