The Liverpool FC Forum > RAWK Announcements, Feedback & Questions

The Israel thread is in the bin.

Some people really donít have a clue how RAWK works.

I didnít post in the thread, but read it, learned a lot from both sides. It became evident it was on borrowed time even though moderated very lightly, but self restraint became less and less. Shame as some great informative posts has been lost.

Like what BER said what happened not a good look at all.

Some of these comments are unbelievable. The reason for it being locked and removed has been given, that you are unwilling or incapable of reading it is on you. To suggest other motives is beyond the fucking pale.

For those incapable of reading the fucking thread.....

This is beyond ridiculous and is a hugely offensive suggestion to make towards those who run the site and make very difficult decisions about what is or should be posted here.

If you genuinely have such a low view of RAWK and the moderation team that youíd entertain the thought for a second that the timing of the closure was to clamp down on open discussion about genocide, you should rethink whether to post here at all.

This is a football forum. I take on board all of the comments about why to many posters itís more than that, but that is what RAWK is at heart and is the reason that it was set up, and the primary purpose of the number of moderators, commentators, scribes etc volunteer their time for nothing to help run it. It it not necessarily the best forum for complex geopolitical or religious discussions. Itís not the BBC or Twitter. If something is too difficult to moderate because of the behaviour of certain posters, the option is there to simply close the thread. That doesnít mean we donít think itís important, itís because we think itís too important to be subject to offensive or misleading shite.

And the posts worth keeping have not been lost, they are merely vacationing whilst I wrestle with a particularly nasty tangle of maven dependencies that is doing a great job of wrecking my weekÖ

Alan_X:
The Fog of War by Sir Lonsdale Augustus Hale, is a 1986 book in which he describes "the state of ignorance in which commanders frequently find themselves as regards the real strength and position, not only of their foes, but also of their friends."

Any thread about Israel/Palestine will stay closed because too many people are stating with certainty things that are probably unclear to the participants on the ground because it coincides with their own preconceived beliefs.

Reports from Hamas and from the IDF both should be read with caution until there is some independent verification. And that verification may take time. The modern information space is full of unreliable or questionable sources and that has been made worse since Musk took over Twitter.

Unless thereís a change of heart in the moderation team you will have to find your own reliable sources of information.

Iím busy with work today but will PM some of the posters above to address specific concerns at the weekend.
