Hello moderator,
I was surprised yesterday that you misrepresented my view in my post due to your "moderation". I wrote "Mo, " in my post and you changed it to "The great Prophet". i went back to change it to "Prophet M, but you changed it again to "The great Prophet" . So my question is this: is it wrong for me to mention that name "M, or to write it? Is that not what he was called when he was living? Or why did you call him "The great Prophet" for me? What if i do not see him as the great Prophet? Please, lets be objective in our moderation and not misrepresent people's views in our bid to moderate their posts.

Or has your system been programmed to change the name to that, so we know that it is the computer that is doing the moderation and not people?

Thanks.

I don't think Mukina2 changed your posts. Moderators can't modify your posts. They can only change the title.

Nairaland General Rules

As a member of this forum, you agree to abide to the following:

ALWAYS POST ON TOPIC/NO DERAILING
Garri posts, “how does this affect…”, “Nairaland is owned by…”, “this space is reserved”, questioning a topic’s worthiness of the Nairaland front page, etc., are considered off-topic posts and will be dealt with accordingly. Derailing is also not tolerated and will result in warnings and/or bans. Our goal is to keep this forum as organized as possible. Thank you.

NO ATTACKS, FIGHTS, BULLYING, or INSULTS
Period! Nairaland is a discussion forum, where disagreements are bound to occur. However, members must agree to disagree at times. Fights and attacks must be resolved amicably or taken off the site. Failure to do so will result in hidden posts and bans. Bullying is strictly prohibited and will result in ban(s).

NO HATEFUL and OFFENSIVE CONTENT
Comments inciting hatred, violence, murder, or any other ills against any race, ethnic/religious groups and TRIBES, gender, intimate orientations, or any group of people, are NOT tolerated. Disturbing or offensive posts or photographs are also NOT tolerated. Violators of this rule will be subject to hefty bans.

NO intimate CONTENT
Sexually explicit photos, videos are not allowed. Posts about intimate congress must be posted in the hidden section created for the purpose.



NO SPAMMING
Spamming, or the (frequent) posting blogger links, miracle products, money schemes, etc., is not tolerated on Nairaland forum. There are appropriate subforums for adverts. Any and every spammer will be banned.

BE COOPERATIVE
Keep in mind that moderators are doing their best to keep this website friendly for its members. As members, you, too, have responsibilities and expectations to help make this website a better place. As you’re a member of one of the best African websites, let’s work together to live up to the expectations that follow.

Miscellaneous
- Thou shalt not deliberately post false information.
- Illegal actions are strictly prohibited. This includes piracy, cracking e.g. creating and distributing trojans and viruses, browsing cheats, etc. Nairaland must not be used to break the law.
- You may not post a link or an advert on any topic more than once.
- Posting another member’s picture(s) without his or her consent is not allowed and will result in consequences.
- The invasion of another user's privacy is strictly prohibited - ex: posting a member's full name. Members violating this rule will be banned.
- The use of multiple accounts without explicit permission of the forum administrator(s) is prohibited.
~Multiple accounts will be tolerated ONLY in cases where a member’s primary account is accidentally banned by Pyguru.
~Multiple accounts trying to go around a ban from a Nairaland moderator will be banned twice as long as the primary handle.
- Affiliate links, questionable investment schemes, MLM, HYIP, & get-rich-quick schemes are not allowed.
- It is a grievous offence to announce the death of a Nairaland member on the forum without the admin's explicit approval.
- Avoid posting using all capital letters, not only are capital letters difficult to read but they are associated with shouting and considered rude.


We take all of these seriously. A member in violation of any of these rules is subject to a ban.

-----

Seun and his moderators strongly encourage members to do the following:

Use the “Report to Moderator” button
It’s there for a reason folks. We do not subscribe to jungle justice or keyboard warriorism. If you see that a fellow member is violating the rules, please report the post to a moderator, briefly stating the violation. Moderators will be sure to respond to the reported post appropriately and in a timely fashion.

Use the “Search” function
It is very possible that someone has posted a topic or story that you want to best. Please use the “Search” function before starting any topic as yours may be a duplicate, which may result in your thread being locked.

Open threads in the proper sections
Thanks in advance!

Complaints threads are for complaints only!
Many sections have complaints and suggestions threads. Please, do not spam these threads or use them as a derailing spot. Your posts will be hidden and you will be banned!

Do not annoy the moderators…
Or anyone for that matter. That goes without saying.

Have fun!
You’re on Nigeria’s and Africa's number one forum! We didn’t come here to dull
