Pro tip: Your posts are not helping you in any way.

Its hard to stay calm when people start telling lies about your software simply to start a flaming war.
Its just mind games.
I am happy to stay a member of the forum but wont be adding to that particular thread any more.

If you are in the mood of fixing the forum, there is a low prio bug still there:

Is it my tablet's Android or country flags under posters' names  are doubled?

Edit: sorry just noticed that the Mods are already aware.

Yep, I screwed the pooch. I think it will need a manual code hack to fix now.

giving a couple of days to mull over the fact that unlike in china having a political opinion that differs from the government is not to be a traitor. He'll be back soon probably as bad as before!

We try to discourage political discussion on this forum as much as possible, but it does eventually happen.
But when someone continues to do it, and in an inflammatory way despite repeated warnings, sooner or later we have to stop it. 12,000 posts is going to cut you more slack than a newbie with a dozen posts, but it ultimately isn't going to save you.

Dave, this isn't meant to be a new political discussion, just a rhetorical contribution to the general understanding. So much is happening on the geopolitical tablet that we can certainly talk about upheavals of historical dimensions. A lot of people are just scared and don't understand what's happening. Hopefully not so many valuable accounts will be lost. Resulting disputes go too quickly "ad hominem", that shouldn't happen, that's the real but seemingly unavoidable problem.

Thank's for your patience and good work.

The reason we discourage politics as much as both of us love to talk about the subject ourselves is that it is a quasi religion for many. A sensible open minded discussion would not be a problem but when someone has to violently challenge the slightest hint at something that they disagree with it means that any tiny comment becomes a huge flame war. That is why we discourage politics because some can have a debate and accept that others think differently and agree to disagree others have to go on a mission to put everyone right on what "they" "think" is the truth.

You will note that in actual fact many a thread while not started as political has turned political once the starting topic was dealt with and it remained and was allowed to happen because users were polite and did not rage at one another like children over the slightest hint of something they disagree with.

Politics is everywhere. We need to get with the times. Dancing around the truth only drives people other than the normies away from a platform.

Denying political discussion is your right. But you are riding a dinosaur.

Perhaps you should read my post again, then try to take part in a thread that is a shouting match over who's lie is the truth. You really have no idea what it is like to moderate political stuff without throwing the baby out with the bath water. This is an electronics forum, not face book. alternatively to do it your way we start banning people which won't go down well either apparently. Which one do you prefer?

Talking about politics on this forum should be avoided. I have never seen coming any good from it.
Besides, there are many other places where you can discuss politics. No need to do it here.

If you don't mind we decide what is fair and we are the ones that get the reports. We know very well who is worse and is also a bit of a pain.

Allowing unnmoderated political discussion on a technical forum is forum suicide. I've seen forums destroyed because of it.

I read your post again, as suggested. It is inflammatory to say that I have no idea. We are both looking for the right way forward. PM if you want, since I hate having to mince my words. Otherwise, all good.

This is difficult for some - getting caught up in the shouting match is an easy trap.

Moderation done properly is not easy.  I speak from my experience as a Mod on another forum.  Criticism against Mods is usually because (a) the complainants do not understand the issues (including the fact that they do not know all the details and that they are not entitled to that information) or (b) the Moderators are poorly suited to the role.  The latter does not apply here - and I am more than happy with the way it is.
