#97854 - Unfair Moderation.
Dear Craig & Steve,

Two of our forum members have left the forum in less than a fortnight. There's certainly some thing wrong with the system.

The problems started when Karma was introduced, I have always been against Karma / scoring. All of us are professionals and have expertise in our native fields for new things we often post here and share information. It makes no sense making a person look good/bad with higher/lower Karma. If at all there is scoring it should only apply to messages to indicate relative usefulness of messages.

Secondly, The forum rules seems to have become more Rigid and Unfair. Sometimes, What applies to member A doesnt apply to member B. This sort of unfair rules cause frustration and people leave. Lots of posts are deleted/blocked because there are off topic. I personally do like threads like this by Steve it is really an informative thread [I scored +1 ]. But according the forum rules it is Off Topic isnt it? It is no way related to 8052 microcontroller is it? IMO It was totally Unfair to Revoke Alberto's Voting right when he ranked Steve's post Off Topic. Sad we have lost one more member with this Unfair Moderation / Administration.

Lets make this forum more peaceful by making the rules more flexible, equal respect for all the members and same rules for all.

Thanks & Regards,
Prahlad Purohit
