Moderating on

The pointless and depressing personal abuse that took place on several threads over the weekend - despite repeated warnings from me and interventions from John Stokdyk and Rebecca Benneyworth - has left us with no alternative but to change the way we moderate threads on AccountingWEB.


  • From this day forward, any comment or part of a comment which contains anything which is not relevant to the OP will be removed.
  • Any comment or part of a comment which attacks another member in any way will be removed.
  • We will not enter into debate with any members about these decisions.
  • The third time we have to do this to any member then their account will be closed.

Moderating forums in which members refuse to obey both the stated terms & conditions and simple professional and personal courtesy is time consuming and expensive. AccountingWEB is not prepared to continue wasting our resources on a small group of people who seem intent on spoiling the site's usefulness for other members.
