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.

Sorry to change the discussion slightly as the price has had a major 6hour spike, but wondered if anyone had used Malcolm Ellis Coins; and if so were they reliable? and would you recommend them to your Forum friends?
Labour chose Scottish Courts knowing they would have a sympathetic ear. The good news is that the decision has ZERO effect on the prorogation.....more political grandstanding pissing in the wind from Labour and their remaintraitors.
