71. Elsewhere in this forum and on ATA Skinner has confirmed that mods were told not to delete anything.
This forum has been totally unmoderated for about a week. I'm sure that there have been hundreds of alerts - all ignored by Skinner's direction. The inevitable result of that has occurred. People are now very angry and dividing into camps. The two posters who volunteered to be liaisons were put in an impossible situation and have now been attacked because of this no-win situation.

I don't know whether this was a deliberate attempt to destroy the GLBTQ Forum here once and for all, or simply incompetence, but the impact is the same.
