Where are the MODs when you need them? double standards??

I do not normally complain, but why is it OK for someone on the forum to use a derogatory term as an offensive comment in fact a racist comment how ever you look at it, over and over again, and even after being reported no action being taken.. I have seen members banned for less.

In fact to say this they are bypassing the swear filter.

I feel disappointed in HUKD right now.

The mods decision is final and binding.

I think they deserve a vast amount of respect for what is an incredibly difficult job.

Andy is wasted, CEO level right there.

Inaction is their decision.

They did this in the interests of free speech. It can be argued that the comments were racist, i would probably say they were , but sometimes the mods allow a comment so an individual can expose and hang themselves.

Sometimes leaving a comment in place is the greater punishment.

The mods are masters of subtlety, intrigue and human psychology.

OK so even though it breaches the swear filter, is offensive to others and is the result of a direct trolling? because if inaction is a decision I am on the verge of not wanting to be part of a site that would allow that.

Andy especially is a political mastermind.

Racists disgrace themselves.

A while back on here i was absolutely vilified for defending travellers and saying id had good experiences with them. For a long time it formed the basis of many attacks on me.

Disgraceful behaviour. A lot of the morons stuck to a narrow definition of racism that is not how racism is commonly understood by the people to justify their hate.

Travelers are a protected group and hate towards them IS racism

I use mod and admin interchangeably. Site staff in general is what i mean.

In practice admin rarely overturns a mod decision and he trusts their judgement.

I was in emailing a user off-site who was actively involved in a campaign of bullying against me and others.

I presented him with a bunch of evidence of his crimes and made it very clear that he needed to stop.

Next thing that user has left the site, not a trace of him. Its like he never existed, dunno what happened. I cant even find him on here.

He knew full well that an individual can be prosecuted.

Good, the police have started to looking into this now as a serious crime. Being anonymous seems to make people think there untouchable.

I cant say for sure that his disappearance and my dossier against him were linked.

All i do know is that shortly after he disappeared from the site. Literally disappeared. Not a trace that he existed.

Trolls, bullies and online bigots are no longer safe.

HI, haritori if you feel any thread comments breach code of conduct guidelines please use the report link adjacent to the specific comment (report > other - message window) to let us know (I can't see any reports from you this evening so not sure which thread you are referring to)

If you do report comments and you subsequently feel that they haven't been actioned by the MOD team then you can use the main contact link to ask the Admin team to review further.

https://www.hotukdeals.com/contact

But inappropriate comments that breach code of conduct guidelines should be reported for MOD team review first before using the contact link.
