    All open forums on Internet are per definition private forums open to the public, as a the owner of the domain is allways a private person or privately owned organization/fundation. So this is truth not only to this particular forum, but to, practically speaking, the vast majority of open public forums on Internet.

    Does this forum also recognise the freedom of speach for the participants of the discurse? And what are the criteria for removing or modifying somebodies comment(s), or the criteria for closing a tread/comment section? Do the moderators of this forum operate more or less randomly in this regard? Like if a moderator personally thinks or feels like a comment is not quite nice, good or adequate, he or she could just removed or change it, without even have to explain which forum rules/conventions the original comment have broken?

    This thread is clear and concise in its point that this is a private forum. It recognizes the free flow of discourse within the parameters of published guidelines. As the forum's director stated above we will remove any inappropriate content with or without explanation. All moderation actions are forwarded to an administrator for review. Moderation of the forum is done by a hand-picked group of volunteers whose integrity, maturity, and knowledge is well established, and whom administration has complete confidence in. You may enjoy the forum knowing it is well maintained and managed. And rest assured if something is removed it is done so with cause. This forum has been in existence for over twenty years, and the reason for that longevity is the dedicated staff. ~Tman
