"Matt - do you consider using the term "tramp" civil? I wonder, would you tolerate other outdated bigotry terms if it came to race, gender etc? If it's civility you want I suggest you take your moderator duties more seriously."

"Thanks Ian - Yours was the least offensive of a handful of comments regarding the hypocrisy or otherwise of Sue's appeal to Christian charity, which together were a bit of a pile-on and generally unedifying. Regarding "editing":…"

"I presume my response to Sue C is one of those you deleted, I hardly see how, 'Did you', in reply to her wider criticism of the Hampton community, could have possibly been misconstrued, considered contentious, provocative or even…"
