Where’s Frank Woolley?

    Is he back? Not seen him? Surely at a time when we are being rightly encouraged to be compassionate it’s time for Frank to be reinstated if indeed he is still being shunned? Please can he come back?

    If you care for an observation from me, the moderation policy isn't condusive to either allow robust debate or allow a sensible time to elapse before those on probation are able to demonstrate they've done their time with good behaviour and out to be invited back into the community. You'll note I didn't say released back into the community.

    It's a very sad world we live in, that it's possible for those who are more interested in creating disruption have the power to effectively be judge and jury on whose posts they'd prefer not to be read and have site moderators back them, purely because it's easier to do so than try to comprehend the context of a post or if it ever actually was actually offensive suggest an appology could resolve matters.

    If I was running this site, I'd bang their heads together until they agreed to play nicely, but there's probably a law that says you can't do that sort of thing these days, so we end up with a site with an endless stream of newcomers with an agenda to remove the tried and trusted in pretty much the same way the Tories did lat year.

    I Frank reads this, I'd like him to know that although I may haven't read all of his contributions, or agreed with them, I never found any that warranted being punished by pre-moderation. I would also like to remind everyone that Frank was never solely defined by his political stance. I'd suggest that his contributions to other matters and in particular to education, outweighs anything a single post that implied an opponent was a waste of a skin, is a justification for a review of the moderaration system. I wish you well, Frank and look forward to your return.

    I rarely agreed with Frank but I liked him just the same.

    Have a great deal of time for frank, although we generally disagree on most subjects we spell so courteously and respectfully, and he always makes me pause and think.

    Great post.

    unfortunately others are allowed to wind others up like on so many current threads and I report it but nothing gets really acted on to my satisfaction,

    I had a brief PM correspondence with him a while back and he told me he had been banned from posting but still read the threads.

    The England cricket team could do with him. He scored nearly 59000 runs and took over 2000 wickets in his first class career.

    It’s become populated by right wing zealots that make the daily mail look like the socialist worker. I think I’m going to put them on ignore. Much easier.
