Griff's posts have been largely censored for no good reason. What you see now is not what he posted. While I'm on the subject why leave a post that says censor this then. As if to say no we didn't. I saw Griff's post he said about the business's on Oulton Broad being equally as guilty about being insensitive to the death of a holiday maker.
I don't agree with that view because the businesses have commitments to their customers who have expectations which would have been let down for no good reason. This is not a view against the expectations and planning of the salty CinC
I think ull find that the original poster has edited his own post to zero content as it tells u that at the bottom of each edited post , and my remark afterwards was ment in a light hearted way .maybe its time the mods stepped in n closed this thread off as its going nowhere apart from down hill .

Sorry, your memory is not serving you at all well. I've heard from BroadAmbition that he was first told on the Friday. Evidently the tragic incident did play a part in the closure of the lock to the CIC (as well as to other traffic). What transpired after that initial decision is still shrouded in fog. Had the decision taken place before the incident, I would agree the possibility of a 'conspiracy', but now I'm inclined to think it was just down to human error.

Some people will never learn.... I read Griff's original post of the 15th and there was no earthly reason that it should have been edited. The points that he made were perfectly reasonable and for the life of me I cannot see how they were beyond the TOS.
When there was the last mass exodus of members from here it was largely because of over zealous modding. Since then the modding has generally had a lighter touch which has been very much to the benefit of the forum and to the credit of the mods. Why are we slipping back into the bad old ways now?
By the way....I suspect that Griff did not edit his own posts and that it only appears that way because he commented on the editing already done by the mods.

I think one could print this thread out and use it as a script with actors in a new show called ‘The Forum’.
It would surly leave the audience cringing and in hysterics in equal measure.
A lot of the problem is this thread has now gone on for so many pages that it is easy for posters to have lost track – and trying to look back to original points raised together with those shared right after the event in July not to mention those when the thread came back to life recently.
Making it harder still to work out what is going on and who is saying what is the many missing posts or those which have been edited. It is akin to being handed a report with lots of blacked out text and trying to make sense of it all.
Some of Griffs posts were edited by Griff.
Astute readers as Exile has made point of would have seen that some had not originally been edited by Griff. A recently example was in post which says:
“EDIT: You've been a member here long enough to know why this post has been edited.”
This post was edited by Garry Cantley who wrote the above - Griff then edited his own post and in so doing now appears as the person who edited the post.
Of some interest to some is the fact Garry Cantley is not a moderator – if you look at his aviator it does not show he is one and yet he has the administrative rights to edit peoples posts – or moderate them. So on it goes round and round recycling things with no new facts being brought to the fore which makes it all a bit pointless keep going over the same things until there is something new to report.
