    Or maybe it's just you cannot tolerate people who don't hold the same opinion as you do? Your deleting posts is a testament to that.

    I have no problem with people voicing opposing opinions, disagreeing with those opinions is not an intolerance to other's opinions. @DavyL200 and @AndyG can both see posts that have been deleted. The only posts I delete are double posts and spam messages...and since you can't see who is moderating/deleting posts you have no idea who is deleting what. Please backup your accusations by providing a link to a thread where I have deleted a post that I disagreed with.

    Ok fair enough. I do not know it was YOU that deleted several posts. I generally do not keep links unless there is some problem. So you are saying you have other people doing your moderating besides you?

    Also I do not know where you got the idea that my health "was bad" because I never said that. Yet you state that in your reply to my criticism of Y-not. I was once 35 yrs of age, and I had no idea how age effects your ability to tolerate a cancerous environment like smoke filled discos. But even when I was a disco goer, I always protected my ears from the deafening damaging effects of high decibel noise they try to call "music".
    I think if you search it you will also find that I am correct that the reason bars do this is to induce stress and make people order more booze. At the risk of being repetitive only ignorant people go to discos in the main-they are not nice or healthly places (not calling you ignorant ok?).
    But you're right, I don't like Y-not much, their staff I find subpar compared to their inflated prices, but I still eat there occasionally. Most times when a forum deletes my post, I make it a mission to post the same information to 3-4 other forums, several of whom do not delete critical posts.

    Can't even remember the name or topic of a thread or even roughly what the topic was about? Odd considering the accusation. I think most people would vaguely remember where such a thing would have happened on the forum. Was it one of your posts that was deleted?

    It isn't my site, nobody is doing moderation for me. But it is not uncommon for forums to have more than one moderator. It should not come as a surprise to anyone.

    Yeah, I'm not interested in any of that here. Go back to the Why Not thread if you want to discuss Why Not or comments made there.

    You accused me of some pretty unethical behavior....back it up.

    A bit of a bold statement that! If someone knows somewhere has negatives but still wish to go there, then it is definitely NOT ignorance - it is free choice.

    Unethical? Nay. Deleting posts on forums by moderators is SOP. I assumed you were in control of the forum or the chief moderator. Why don't you tell us exactly who decides on this forum what posts are kept and which are deleted? Don't you think members who particpate here are entitled to know who is moderating the content? I recall a post saying you took over this forum quite some time ago, so I assume you owned it. One of my posts was about a vibrator. I assume that it may have touched on the highly religious/anti-sexual ethos (hypocritical) in Dumaguete and was deleted, although an empty spot on the forum with my handle remained. Can't recall the details but I know there have been more than one post that was deleted. Since this is so common for not just me but most members on most forums, (in which case the forum usually loses membership and becomes a stale vapid place with little controversial content. I don't really get too excited about it, since it's so common. Next time I will supply the link as you have requested. Honestly you seem to want to engage in a pissing contest all the time.

    I have made 770 posts to date and cannot recall ONE post being deleted. If it were then I would have to assume it was for good reason as this website has no axe to grind - I admit I get a bit annoyed when I post to newspapers and they show dislike for free speech on some of the most mundane of topics, but I have no impression of that happening here. This website is mostly about an exchange of information helpful to all of us and, yes, people do have opinions, but those opinions are usually very moderate.

    I am afraid I still am unable to agree with you. Being stupid means having a lack of mental capacity and I am sure very many highly intelligent people visit discos. It is just about knowing the downsides but making an intelligent choice. You can see them and think how stupid they are but that is your individual perception and carries no weight - it is based on YOUR thinking and not theirs. There are, of course, stupid behaviours but in my opinion those are ones which compromise the safety of other people - if, for example, a person jumps off a high cliff knowing there is a risk of death then it is not stupidity, it is free choice but one which most people would not make. If however that person pushed another person off that cliff, then it is stupidity - and would probably end in a prison term.
