People do notice, even if we do not comment. Obviously, we are concerned we will also be deleted so you won't get as many comments. It doesn't mean we don't see the obvious.
Of all boards, that is not the one that should be deleting people. It does not look right. Deleting has simply caused the discussion to expand to other places such as the facebook page. Was that the intent...to reach widen the audience?
If asking for freedom to discuss topics is wrong than I suppose I shall also be deleted but I do ask this. Let people speak as much as possible. Every new person that gets swept up in a deletion simply broadens the topic. For me, it has never been about the moderator, but about what exactly is the problem with individual posts. I have screenshots of these and there was no swearing, no criticism of the moderator, etc. Perhaps the view of what DNA involves has been defined in too narrow of terms?
