Response to Discussions

I suppose it would be too much to expect some sort of feedback from the moderators. This overly strict censorship will lead to the death of PNGScape as people check back and see that there are no discussions. Discussions need to be free flowing and near as real-time as possible. What moderation does, is it treats a modern medium like an old one. The pace of discussion currently is snail-mail like.

What also sucks - to use the technical term - is that your comments are at the mercy of the moderators. This 'power-fix', even if it is only electronic, can be too much for some people to let go off.

Sad that we have allowed a small, easily rectified problem to lead to this.

About this board - the Kumul Discussion Forum is administered and set up by PNGScape with the permission of the founder of the board and the Kumul Foundation pursuant to the Kumul Foundation's object of facilitating discussion and debate on issues of significance to Papua New Guinea's national development. The old Kumul board can be found at www.voy.com/1950/ Discussion must be conducted respectfully, and rationally, with the object being that the dissemination of ideas will lead to action that will contribute to PNG's ongoing development.

Remember, PNG's destiny is ours too!
