there is no problem putting any such thread on Radman !! Basement or not.
You are not being criticised here, I am just putting forward previous comments from METRO to see how other members feel about his pathetic poxy ideas
(well that's my opinion BUT let's see how others feel
Let's put it this way, a members puts on a thread that a mod feels is in the wrong area of the site E.G it's in Basement but should be in Off Topic, well NO SWEAT the mod can move it in 30 seconds flat and it is no big deal!! I promise you

By that I mean the following:
- Two people will enter a debate that will turn into a conversation completely not related to the original topic.
they are doing this for support from other members or even mods
if this support does not materialise then you are just left to read it

Yes this is annoying but I can probably speak for other mods and say "to deal with things like this might be seen as onerous and over supervision of threads" in addition it is quite possible that in truth mods just don't have the time or really can't be bothered to act against such cases, even though strictly speaking they are incorrect behaviour on the site
BACK TO THE CASE IN HAND
A. Should these forums control - to a far greater degree -what gets put on the site?
So that threads like "Private security passing themselves off as Old Bill…" which in fact have nothing to do with PCSOs, are deleted on sight?
B. Does this site need to be "backed" by official Police Services?
otherwise we really are not worth visiting at all are we?
