    Hi everyone

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    We haven't changed Forum policy for many years. If you take a look at the forum rules you'll see they're pretty outdated and could do with a good update - it's on the list! :)

    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/site/forum-faqs

    As explained but not in so much detail, the problem we've had with this is that some of you used the spam button on bail-in's original post and/or complained it broke copyright and it was automatically removed.

    The forum member contacted us and once we were satisfied it didn't break copyright we said bail-in could re post it. We asked bail-in to include a note explaining we'd said it could be posted so it's not reported again.

    We don't generally remove content just because someone doesn't like the format it's been posted in, or feels it's negative or incorrect.

    We might ask them politely to re-post it in a format that's easier for everyone to read, though, so people can understand easier. If this happens again please think about doing that if you could.

    Thank you all for your understanding, it really is appreciated.

    @bigadaj Could you read the very top of our Forum Rules please? Thank you

    Andrea :)

    Yes, that was my point.

    And the irony that Martin is stating how he's so tortured abiut being misrepresented on scams where people have lost money.

    And just for the avoidance of doubt, I'm not defending bail-in, and certainly not LC&F, but the principle of free speech (my turn to be pompous now!) :)
    I'd accept the free speech argument if it applied to everyone, but so far some posts appear to have been deleted, one of mine was edited by the forum team (for using a word to describe bail-in's posts that at least two other posters had already used) and it looks like some posters might have got a temporary ban.

    You mean permanent ban.

    The first rule of PPR club is you do not talk about PPR club.
    The second rule of PPR club is you do not talk about PPR club.

    The third rule may be that you don't try to satirise events using popular movie quotes, else the post in which they are contained will silently be removed without anyone contacting you about it. I'm merely reposting the above comment in case it was an accident that the previous time I posted it, it disappeared. :)

    Has anyone tried "Show me the money!" on LC&F yet? :)

    I would suggest a suitable home for "You can't handle the truth!" too but don't wish to become an unperson....

    Well, London Capital & Finance may only have been around for a couple of years but it seems they've managed to kill off one of MSE's most prolific, tireless and helpful posters over the last 13 years. Great work.
