The Phred is in the Building

Another grumpy moderator post...

There have been several incidences over the past couple of days where posts have been made to this community that are patently NOT urban decay.

I'm willing to accept that mistakes happen - I've done it myself - and if an entry is accidentally posted here I would like to think that the poster would delete it as soon as they become aware of it.

It's a lot easier to delete posts than it used to be: just click on the Comment on this link, select the pencil icon near the top of the page, and push the Delete Journal Entry button at the bottom of the page.

A zero-tolerance policy has been in force for the past few weeks: if I see anything that is obviously not Urban Decay, it goes. Unfortunately I can't be around all the time - I'm on Australian time, for starters - so if this trend continues I'll be looking at appointing additional moderators who can fill the gaps.

Any person who posts an inappropriate entry in this community, and leaves it there long enough for me to see it will henceforth have their ability to post suspended and will be sent a "Please Explain" e-mail. Sorry to be so draconian, but I've had to delete three posts in the past two days and, frankly, I'm jack of it.
