- We are one BBC: great things happen when we work together.
The initial moderators' response included the following:
Further to your complaint about some of the content on a BBC blog (reference number ******), we have decided that it does not contravene the House Rules and are going to leave it on site.
I then said: Why do you allow this poster to use a term like '**** ... ****'? Would you publish such a remark if it were directed against Mark or any other member of the BBC? I don't think so.
The moderators' response changed:
Further to your complaint about some of the content on a BBC blog (reference number ****), we have decided that it does indeed contravene the House Rules and have removed the offending material.
Thank you for pointing this out to us.
Now why couldn't the moderators have said that first time round?
