The EUSA "Forum"



There are 23 subsections in the EUSA forum.

Student representatives, as far as EUSA-less can tell, moderate 14 of them.

TonyF, on the other hand, moderates every single one of them.

Here's a quote from the EUSA frequently asked questions, under "What are moderators?"
Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) whose job it is to look after the running of the forums from day to day. They have the power to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.
What is "abusive or offensive" about asking on the forum for a copy of the EUSA budget for next year? EUSA-less did just this and the posts have been deleted - twice!

Has TonyF (presumably Tony "Goebbels" Foster) been removing posts on the forum that could be seen to criticise EUSA?

EUSA-less will be conducting some experiments on the EUSA forum over the next few weeks to see just how tightly controlled they are...
