I suggest this numerous time but all my request has been turn down and i even 
suggested the posting should be restricted to AMSAT members only and again my 
request has been turn down.

I agree with the rules when you wrote on a public forum there is restrictions 
and your text should be in their guide-lines here is some of them

No politics
No military related text
No patriotic related text
No business related text
No sexual or pornographic text
No religious related text
No direct attack or insulting text

Now who will be the judge!

I vote for Joe Brown or Judge Judy.

P.S. if North Korea or China was named instead of the USA could be this sudden 
desire to have the BB moderated will never come out!

I suggest to name me as moderator :)
