True sister however if humans are error prone this means Moderators are error prone if there is an error made then I would like moderators (not yourself but others) to make mention of their mistakes rather than try to make "examples" out of people and cut their comments or discussions. Frankly I'm tired of all the hypocrisy since there are other non-Muslims who talk much negativity about Islam but then again so-called freedom of speech right?

Assalamualaikum Borther Israfil,

Moderators are as human as anyone else. Wish we were angels who could do things in a snap of a fingre, and never make any mistakes, but unfortunately that is not true. I dont exactly get your point. Honestly I had been reading very little on the boards since months now, and still do not feel fit to visit regularly, but i try my best. Please send a "report" if you have a special concern, insha allah I wont miss that one.

Maa salaama,

Nausheen

What I see is this, is that there is too many forums, and too much activity due everyday to an influx of new members since the new layout, for the few moderators here who are only here somewhat part time/when they can. And this leads to many threads that obviously needs to be moderatored not moderatored and behaviour from both sides checked.

And also those forums as Yusuf mentioned that once where checked before postings are not anymore.

I believe that the solution to kerbing abusive/negative terms (bashing each other) from both muslims and non muslims is to have more moderators.

And moderators from non muslims to help kerbing them and enforce the board rules also, while the islamic issues and islamic behaviour is still left to muslim moderators. Perhaps an idea to toy with and try.

I just believe that there needs to be more moderators for the amount of activity that is going on everyday.

Dear Israfil,

Would you please clarify what you mean by "we as Muslims have a duty to help each other".............I am hoping you mean that "each other" relates to each and every other being....................if  not (I hope not).......well therein lays the essential problem with a core fundamental principle of Mohammed's religion.........add to this a notion of superiority of the "group" and one has a recipe for division and conflict between fellow humans.

Such a principle and notion are so against the loving guidances of Jesus. (a founder and member of no religion)

Think about it!

Brother ZamanH, there are four moderators, if i am not mistaken. When you identify "some", and suggest "they" should resign - you are pointing your fingers at more than one. Of these you further highlight some as being "senior".

I have much respect for the moderators on this board and have always visited the board primarily to participate in discussions and share thoughts, not to moderate. Moderators on this board are not extraordinary intellectuals, distinguished scholars, trained leaders, professional negotiators or exceptionally pious people. Even if they are, I have personally never heard them publicly announcing it or displaying their certificates of achievement.

If your description of "overestimated intellect" was the result of any of my responses, posts or actions - I resign as a moderator. I am quite alright partipating without any special powers and stars. During my lengthy stay with prolonged breaks I have seen many knowledgeable members come and go, I can only appreciate the opportunity i had to learn from them without having to let them know.

The same goes with a couple of current members and i would not mention names in fear that their intellectual capacities are somehow questioned by those who are missed.

If some want to put all airs jumping the topic and never intending to learn something - it is up to them... Others may want to gather all  information available on Islam's stand on masturbation and have deep intellectuall discourse on the subject. It is indeed pity that some of very worthy contributors find it hard to participate in such a noisy and polluted environment where thoughts and opinions are easily hijacked and turned around... 

  

walai kum as salaam,

I am sorry brother, Mockba, its wasn't certainly you. I didn't take any name because I didn't intend to deteriorate the situation further.

Asalamu Alaikum,

Well, I can see not much has changed here. In any case, how are the folks of Islamicity doing?

Wasalam,

Liam
