      You are allowed free speech, as long as it is without breaking our rules. If you want free speech and insist on breaking our rules, then the only way that you are going to get it is to setup your own forum.

      One thing that we will not tolerate is rudeness, or offensive language, to our staff, our moderators, our members, as well as members of Sky staff who may post officially or unofficially on Skyuser.

      Now I can obviously see that you are cheesed off with Sky, in fact even Stevie Wonder could, but I will not allow you to (and I am pretty sure that the other admins / mods won't either) go against our rules.

      For your reference they are here:

      Rules of our forum

      If you believe that you can post within our rules, fire away, if not, feel free to send myself a PM and I will then delete your account for you.

      Just for future reference, if you do not agree with a moderator's decision, or even an admins, you should appeal / put your case across via PM. We have nothing to hide on here, but there is such a thing as forum etiquette.

      FYI - I have seen the original post, as it was copied to an admin forum before being changed - And for the record - I totally agree with the moderators decision and subsequent actions.

      Legally the Sky User website being a UK website is legally responsible for what is posted on the forum.

      So not only could somebody sue the poster for anything libelous etc but also the site itself.

      This has already happened with another UK based site when a flame war started and the site had to settle out of court and take their forum down when one of the parties sued.

      So the site owners are well within their rights to moderate as they see fit to protect themselves legally.

      Hi what you are forgetting is so has everyone else. (freedom of speech) Because you have issues with Sky does not make you different it seems your attitude will cause you problems if you have talked to Sky the way you are talking to Skyusers who are only trying to help. This Forum is a site not related to Sky but has many who have had problems and how those problems were solved thereby passing on that knowledge. (always treat everyone the way you want to be treated)
      why the hell are you changing and censoring my posts?
      i live in England, where i am allowed the freedom of speach.
      I will say what i like, when i like,

      Dude you are speaking rubbish.

      Sky have absolutely

      ZERO

      influence over this site. We would appear to have upset them a good few times in the last few years.
