It is wrong because you are creating new meaning out of what I said. I never said that moderators as a group are abetting dissing the armed forces. You are protesting something that I did not say. If someone else said it that is not my statement and do not include that accusation against me.
But there is one moderator who has on occasion made statements insulting to the armed forces. I have privately complained by reporting the concerned post and on occasion corrections have been made, sometimes by the moderator himself. And it was not you. You probably don't even know this happened and under the circumstances you are wrong in painting all moderator actions as individuals in lily white. You know very well that if I have something against you personally I would report your post so at least other moderators would know.
You need to decide whether you want to include yourself in a "a group of moderators" who are collectively responsible or whether you are an individual with your own conscience. If you choose the former, then I accuse the moderator group of being blind to at least one moderator who has been insulting to the armed forces. If you are an individual who has never done this, please DO NOT speak collectively for the group.
And please do not ignore the fact that there are a lot of other things that are not healthy about BRF that I have pointed out in my earlier posts. Your protestation that moderators do not have time to read every post was what set me off in pointing out the number of things that moderators do not seem to have time for.
And before anyone else gets uptight (as has happened on previous pages) - when I say "Do not insult the armed forces on here where the accused has no right of reply" I am not implying that it is OK to diss babus or politicians. I am not even claiming innocence. Do not insult anyone. Or at least have equal standards where a forum member has a right to insult another member for defamation. Right now we are allowed to insult anyone except a forum member. Insulting the former is neither remarked upon nor debated. Insulting a forum member earns punishment.
As regards the private message, this is what I am seeing
