And clearly, they are being allowed to state them. That is why this thread is here and has been kept open and available to all. Yes again, that is why this thread has stay opened. Ah, interesting how in a topic about TDS you've now moved to debating this forum's moderation methods, what rules there are or are not, where they are located, etc. And while "kind of" politely stated, it obviously has a bit of a snip at me. Could it be you have an ulterior motivation to introduce this off-topic commentary here in this thread? Could it be that you are upset because you wanted to have your own separate thread on this topic, which I merged into here? And after I merged it into here, as noted in this placeholder thread, you decided you deserved to have your own separate thread from every other poster here, and reposted the same content in a second new thread boldly titled: "ADMIN, DON'T MOVE THIS!". Wrong. If we feel something needs to be moved, we will move it! If you don't understand the rules here, which are really no different then most online forums, then you can certainly ask. But, when staff makes a moderation, whether that be a thread move or merge, or even an edit or deletion, those decisions are final. This forum is privately owned and operated, and we will make the decisions we feel are appropriate. And there are ways of stating things that are nicer than others. "big wielding stick" has a negative connotation to it. Sure, you can say no attacks are present or no offense is intended, or whatever, but your wording is just edgy enough to take a dig at me while trying to make it look like you're being totally nice and polite. In any case, we are allowing continued discussion on this topic's subject. I've replied to your statements here, since you raised them here. But, if you have further issue because you've been "moderated", then you can continue to PM me. We will not discuss this forum's moderation further in this thread.
