Why is this still on the forum? Have the mods given up?

....which would fit in somewhat with what I have just posted on the Election Forum?

Once upon a time the mods would have taken this down very quickly but not before at least two of them agreed (i.e. there was no single dictator).

11 days have lapsed and it is still here. Are the Mods asleep?

Should I test this by posting something  defamatory and seeing how quickly they respond?

Perhaps we should explain to Monica that we don't actually give a damn what she does.  I'm sure if we put it in strong enough terms, we will get into trouble with the mods and eventually something will be done .... just saying ....

Well considering the business she is in, reading the forum rules before posting should be a pre requisite. It would therefor make sense to actively avoid anything she is part of. So rather than promoting her business she has actively turned people away.

Interesting business plan, though doomed to fail.

Also, considering what she is offering, I would have hoped that she could have remembered to spell her name correctly in the body of text.

Hi Monicaa, welcome to the IOSH forum. Seeing how you're entrepeneurial in nature, perhaps you could work with the forum moderators on ensuring future advertising is promptly removed and spammers banned.

I hope word doesn't get around about this forum being free for all...I'd hate for the MHFA spammers from social media to start advertising here.

Happy Birthday Monica! 

And strangely enough, on the page there are 24 threads. This is 3rd most popular in views and comments. 

Strange that it attracts so much attention as it has no relation to H&S.

Being in such a "dry" black and white career we do tend to love a distraction - and it is the career forum where Monica has posted I presume her view on careers as well as dropping an advert

Do you think the current mods read that site?

Do we know the names of the site moderators? Are we even allowed to know them? In the short time I've been on here it seems maderation is solely down to yourself and maybe the odd nudge of what is and isn't acceptable from the old and bold.

I have just had a thought (too much time staring at regulations and dealing with competence of contractors and why our LEV keep failing their inspections). The thought is, is this Monica related to the Monica who stood in for the lovely Samantha on I'm Sorry I Haven’t a Clue at various times when Samantha was a bit under the weather or is that weatherman?

I am confused and it was a long time ago.

Or is Monica the same Monica that came to fame in US politics during the Clinton era? And is now trying to make a living in the UK?

As the Mods no longer exist - but IOSH hasn't removed [at least one of] the Mod Logins, the Mod probably logged in by mistake, instead of using his/her personal login.

Monica is achieving legendary status ...... 

It wil be one of those "do you remember what you were doing when ..... " moments.  We shall all reminisce about Monicccccaaa, her entreprenuerial graphic design skills and her inability to spell her own name.

Ah yes, I remember it well ....

So, someone that visits here once and has a cult following, we should put her name forward for council next year. This has already had over 900 views and is doing a lot better than most other threads.

Don't particularly need any H&S knowledge to spot old threads being resurrected to include adverts http://forum.iosh.co.uk/posts/t108706-Office-chairs--again but one thing is abundantly apparent moderation of the forum seems to have been assigned that last thing Friday job which is always kicked in to the long grass of the following week.

No, No - its Sven who stands in for Samantha - didn't Beryl Reid have an alter ego called Monica - it could be her?
