    Re red_observer:
    This poster has been on premoderation for months on end. When is enough enough? At a time when social interaction with others is so limited, the ability to discuss and chat online is invaluable.
    We have just seen the sad case of Tidal, a much-loved poster of long standing, banned and unable to keep in touch while he died of pancreatic cancer.
    Given the current circumstances, I am asking you to reinstate red_observer's posting privileges.

    Any TESsers wishing to add their support, please post below.

    Me too.

    I understand that decisions about length of pre-moderation are entirely at TES’s. discretion and genuinely respect that. Current times are rather exceptional though with many people being more at risk of social isolation. This supportive and excellent forum is an important point of social contact for many, including Red. Being unable to fully participate in ongoing conversations must be particularly difficult.

    It isn't just invaluable, at a time of national crisis, it's essential.

    In view of the fact that access to TES is a social lifeline for many and self-isolation is imminent, I urge the moderators to release @red_observer from pre-moderation.

    I too encourage the release of Red Observer and support his march on the long road to freedom.

    C'mon TES tear yourselves away from all that work on the update and spend a second or two unblocking him.

    I agree! Let Red post freely!

    NB There's a few others who might benefit from being allowed to 'escape' pre-moderation also. Such as yours truly! ;)
