According to Maria, they don't read the threads.
Any moderation of specific posts happens at the membership level when a post is reported for a rules violation. But that appears to take time in some cases to delete posts and in many cases entire threads are pulled.
So people being civil who take the time to post the facts on a subject will also have their posts deleted even without have broken any forum rules.
That is poor moderation and its not working out well.. But my understanding is that that forum has had problems for many years.
I can't understand why they don't just get rid of opinion type threads and focus on what they do best ie buy/sell/wanted ads and community notices such as the TV is out.
On that pulled thread, the person who didn't sign her name made a few good points such push back on name calling, anti division and the fact that the FDA recalls a.large number of previously approved drugs.
