Sorry to hear that.

It's worth mentioning that you're apparently so offended by the moderators that you claim to want to stop participating in the forum, but not so offended that you're unwilling to participate just once more to demand removal of your account.

Then again, maybe the moderators are offended by your apparent inability to post your request in the proper topic area (e.g., Site Information), and/or by your inability to figure out how to delete your own account (which is easy enough to do).

I'm sure I've offended you further, just as I'm sure that despite your threat to leave, you'll be back here to read any responses to your indignation. 

Regardless, bye.

My advice: count to ten, walk away for a while, forget that this forum exists for a few weeks. If you still feel the same way afterwards, write a thoughtful well explained letter to the moderators, edit it many times, think about it for a while, and then send it to them.

Go take some pictures... Go somewhere you have never been before and enjoy.... Recharge the sanity...  I wish you health and happiness.

By the looks of the link you've posted, you want to make this a political site.
 
This is a photography forum, and bring politics into it starts flame wars and is not relevant to photography.

I think some people have sensibilities which are entirely too offend-able. Such people should probably just avoid the Internet entirely.

I can not comment on the attitude of the moderator, I was not told what he did for "offended your sensibilities." Anyway, goodbye.

I don't get it, what happened? I've left a couple of times and come back with new identities. But that's more or less because got a little tired of some of the frequent posters, most of them are banned now and the others seems to be disregarded by the lot of us.

CR has been a drug for me the last two or so years. I really enjoy this place. It's basically only a matter of maintaining a mature and sensible tone.

I've learned so much here and will keep coming back over the years.

I do miss some guys though, Brian Squibb and most recently Paul who left. Not sure what happened there. Bdunbar haven't posted much lately. And a couple of others.

Hmmm, a spot of self-immolation from AdamJ. That'll help matters. No, wait, nothing has changed apart from a few bemused looks from passers-by.

Actually, reading it it talks more sbout the hazards of working as a photo journalist in war. Like the other thread from yesterday. But clearly politics has no place here.

The thread from yesterday, RIP teenage Canon Shooter Molhem Barakat killed in Syria age 17, appears locked. I wanted to add that the saying attributed to Burke in it - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."  - is apocryphal. It doesn't appear in nay of his writings. See: http://tartarus.org/martin/essays/burkequote.html
