I agree with George that SRB should not have to post anything its
moderators don't wish to post.  I'll go even farther.  They should not
even be asked to do so.
But SRB should be honest about its policies.  If they don't wish to
publish material from (or even relating to) CBs, or whomever else, they
should just say so, in their policy, their charter, or whatever.
In my case, I was left feeling that I had been jerked around.  I was
asked to "re-word" my submission on what I felt were specious grounds,
when in fact it was my defense of St Paul against unjust accusations (I
had seen posted in SRB) that was the real problem.
In the few interchanges I had with Bill H, I found him to possess a
politically correct humorlessness (IMHO), with which I could not
establish any rapport despite my best efforts.  Lighten up, Bill!  
I must say that SRB is the nicest NG I've ever been kicked out of.  I
just wish they had done it without jerking me around first.
