What Kind Of Forum Is This??

What the heck is going on these days with this forum? The Weekly police squad seem to be removing posts left and right and even locked the thread dealing with the topic of such "edits" (and deletions). Their "rationale" apparently is that you can say virtually anything against a non-specific person or group, or say something totally stupid or outrageous, but if you actually name a name, especially in terms of responding to a specific poster (who 9 times out of 10 is just using an online name like "Parent" anyway, so it's not like you're calling out a real person in public), that's it, it's history. What kind of standard is that?
