    Lol, it wasn't what they said. It was more of what they didn't say. Plus the fact that as a signatory of the official secrets act myself, they knew I couldn't divulge anything that was said or not said any further. 
    The problem with talking about this subject on this type of forum is that silver collecting is a big part of the prepper and doomsday community, which is a fertile breeding ground for the collection of tin foil as well. This forum has a higher than average number of conspiracy theorists than other types of forum. 
    I won't go into things on this thread, as I believe that it should not be hijacked by people with an anti government agenda. But I will say this. It is interesting that Julian Assange and wikileaks have managed to uncover lots of secrets, but they have found absolutely nothing major with regards to claims around 911. 
    For 911 to be a cover up, it would need the assistance of thousands of people and yet nothing has ever "come out". The human race is rubbish at keeping secrets hence the governmental leaks on both sides of the Atlantic on a daily basis. 
    But I'm not here to change people's minds, just to remember friends who died in this atrocity.

    Its not the front line officers that cause the problems its the senior officers with their politically correct policies which drive the way they police. added to this is the funding cuts to social services , mental health and other agencies means a lot of people are being dealt with by the police to do work which they are not trained for

    My daughter and her husband are both police officers so i get a real idea of their daily lives as officers the government has let them down with the savage cuts in numbers the courts are too soft criminals rights are placed above victims rights and too many people have no respect for anything or anyone i constantly tell my daughter , not to take any undue risk because as a society we do not care and its not just police ,attacks on doctors , nurses, fire and rescue and many others continue to rise  too many standby and watch these attacks  and film them for facebook or you tube rather than help as to whether our police should be armed as they are in the rest of the world i believe it is inevitable

    The UK police are heavily dependent on the public whom they serve. They’ve been praised, reviled and blamed for society’s ills. Yes, Britain has become lawless. The role of the police has been so diluted that they’ve become a target for criminals rather than the other way around. Criminals see them as just another gang which, of course, they are not. That leaves them open to attack.

    dutchman reacted to ChrisSIlver in Deletion or Editing of posts on the forum.   
    Firstly I would like to state that posts being edited or deleted is an extremely, extremely rare occurrence. And the majority of members have never had any of their content edited whatsoever and will be completely unaware of what this topic is referring to.

    In general the forum supports an open place to discuss and debate different points of views amongst a wide range of subjects where freedom of speech is welcomed. For example, we take no bias towards any precious metals dealers.

    However, any posts that seem to be abusive, may be seen as bullying in nature, contain swear words or inappropriate words, racism or simply those that the deemed not in the spirit of the forum community may be edited or deleted. In reality the amount of posts that may be edited is extremely extremely small, at the time of writing there are nearly 230,000 forum posts and only a few of those have ever been removed, most if not all edits are to remove inappropriate words from a members post and to make it clean.

    We have also locked topics in the past when healthy debates spiral out of control and become confrontational and personal fights. The forum is not a platform for this, and we kindly ask for all members to respect each other even if views or opinions may be opposing.

    I would like to thank the members of the community here for supporting the forum, who has shown respect to their other fellow members and for insightful and interesting posts and debates on the forum, as well as helping others by sharing their knowledge about our hobby and sharing useful information about non precious metal related topics unconditionally.

    We are a community here with a shared interest in a common hobby, and we try to help each other. However from time to time a few outliers may appear, those who wish to destroy what we have all worked so hard here together to build.

    Out of nearly 5000 members there have only been less than a few members of the forum that I have had to message about their conduct.

    My goal is the long term survival of the forum as an entity and to protect our community of precious metals collectors and investors. The dream is to create the worlds best and largest platform for precious metals enthusiasts.

    Any topics that I deem to be detrimental to the forum and community’s long term survival and growth, will be removed.

    If you have a genuine issue or concern about the forum, or a forum moderator please private message me. If you have a suggestion on how you believe the forum can be improved, please do not hesitate to send me a private message. I am always open to suggestions on how we can improve the forum and open to improving it for the greater good.

    Lastly I would like to once again thank all contributing members of The Silver Forum and our community here, not just those who support the forum financially with premium membership, but all members of the community here who contribute someway to the forum, whether through posing insightful posts, helping to moderate spam, or simply by being a member here. Though I would like to state that the forum membership does greatly help the forum to maintain itself as it grows and becomes ever more dependant on larger resources, so a big thanks to those who also support with premium membership. We are all a community here.
