Moderation questions

why clean it up? i find it informative for multiple vendors to explain the differences in their products. the only problem i have is Evosport calling out RPi and talking shiet.

The problem is that two vendors seldom can talk to each other or others impartial in a thread about one of their products. That is why other forums have a rul against other vendors parcticipating in one vendors thread.

that sucks... this forum is very informative but i hate how one cannot speak freely. everything is monitored heavily, most other forums aren't ruled with an iron fist like this one.

If you think throwing talk of lawsuits etc as we saw in these last psots are informative they are not.

Members can of course ask and talk whatever they like and veondors come in to reply on THEIR OWN products, not anyones else product. Fair and balanced

Hi Gustav,

Got off the phone with Brad and everything is A-OK. Sorted everything out and cleared all the misunderstandings.

This Board is very well moderated in my view. There are some very difficult issues discussed in the OT forum and some very forthright posters. The discussions can get out of hand and are well handled by the mods.

It's a thankless task really because they're damned if they intervene and damned if they don't.
