An authoritarian like message board where the moderators brag to each other publicly about banning posters (Mod: eh, Mickey, who'cha ban today?...NO-ONE?!?! *falls off chair*) and where you can't mention the word knacker
without getting an infraction and 2 week ban from the forum. (despite the fact that these vile creatures are responsible for 50% of crime in my town, despite making up less than 5% of the populace.)
There are hundreds upon hundreds of forums, some which have on average a post once every 3 months. If you piss of one of the many moderators (an extremely easy thing to do) expect your new thread to be moved to some obscure forum which hasn't had a post for 3 months, and if you disagree with the moderator you'll get an infraction.
After Hours is the most popular board, this is where the moderators brag most about banning other members daily. If you make a post about O' Connell Street you will get plenty of responses in this forum. But if you piss of one of the moderators expect your thread to go into the architecture forum, or the bird watching forum or some shit. (as there are boards that fly over O' Connell Street.) In either forum there will 1 post in the past 6 months, a new thread in the past year.
I got banned multiple times (despite not being banned from any other forum i've ever posted on.) which just sparks the authoritarian image. It has the potential to be a good site, it's a pity you can't speak your opinion.
