When someone posts in a way that is offensive we try to contact them to work it out as quickly as possible. If there is no reply from the person within approximately 24 hours, we move it off the board to a private administrational board that is not visible to the public. In some cases we don't wait at all but rather move it off immediately. It all depends on the situation and what was said.
We usually leave a post explaining that the thread was removed and why. But we do forget to do so sometimes (as in the case of this thread).
If the person agrees to edit I give her/him access to that board so the editing can be done there and then I move it back to the board it was posted on. If the poster refuses to edit I will either delete out the post entirely, since we don't edit people's words for them unless directed to do so, or the thread will be left off the board, especially if the offenses are throughout a thread and some members refuse to correct the violations or if editing totally distorts the thread and leaves it incomprehensible.
The thread has been moved back to the Gentle Discipline board now. Thanks for your patience and if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
