SEO Reputation Management at its best!

InvestorsHub.com, Inc. (iHub) lists no less than TWO specific sets of express posting/deletion of posts rules.  (See, e.g., http://ihwiki.advfn.com/index.php?title=Handbook#Deletion_of_Posts AND http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/terms.aspx .)  These rules have teeth and construed in a highly biased manner could justify the deletion of almost any type of post or the refusal to delete almost any type of post - even if the post appears quite in violation of several rules to various non-administrating or non-moderationg iHub member.

Both moderators, but most disturbingly the site administrators, twist and bend these rules to fit their fancy.  Perhaps an admin dislikes a particular posting crown but likes an crowd opposed to the first group.  That administrator will ensure that the posts from the group he dislikes will either be deleted or will refuse to restore wrongfully deleted posts by reviewing and rubber-stamping the deletion.  Meanwhile, the group the administrator favors make repetitive posts that violate various iHub posting rules (e.g., no spam, no personal attacks, no meandering off topic, no vulgarity), and no matter how many times poster report such blatant iHub posting policy violations, the administrator makes sure those posts from his favored posting crowd remain brazenly plastered all over the forums!

The above practice appears ubiquitious, even tacitly colluded, as roving bands of "trolls" rip through a particular stock forum for weeks... degrading the stock, insulting investors, and violating numerous iHub posting rules receiving, if anything, only a minor slap on the wrist from the site administrators for only the most egregious posting violations.  Trolls post bitter, baseless, or intentionally misleading posts to attack a certain stock or stocks in packs for the soul purpose of tearing apart the reputation of the stock with "noise posts" and repeated negative, albeit based primarily on opinion, propoganda against the stock with almost no intervention by the administrators.

This bizzare, unreasonable, and seemingly random enforcement of the iHub rules (i.e., as the administrators see fit) results in the ability of the roving trolls to discredit or even manipulate a stock's PPS by squelching as many stock proponents' posts as they feel they can without raising an eyebrown or two here and there.  Well, the jig is up and eyebrows are raised.  Either the iHub Admins are simply the most unfair, non-objective, lazy website stewards to have existed in modern times OR something is very the h*ll wrong with their extraordinarly biased twisting of the rules to favor certain packs of roving trolls.  Regardless, the executives at iHub's parent company, ADVFN PLC, should demand uniform and equal implementation of the rules
