I understand that the above post is YOUR opinion, Tony. However, I know from years of lurking on this site that some of what you have stated as truth is actually fictional. In addition, the fact that these disagreements spin wildly out of control is directly due to perpetuation efforts by a certain few, usual suspects. A group to which it appears that you claim membership.
It matters not that these usual suspects have forums of their own OR that they are moderators. What matters is that the opinions and/or experiences of many people are posted here freely and left for the reader to consider. Each of us will ultimately be guided by our inner healer and quite frankly DO NOT require overbearing guidance(?) that seems to arise from time to time in these conflicts.
I agree that the TOS should be followed without question. However, that means you and several other forum owners and valuable contributors are equally at risk of being banned. Your own actions in the past have been in violation more than once from what I have read......
In fact, one of the most irrational, deeply offensive and personally directed slams I have ever seen here on CZ was made by you; intended for HV.
I would respectfully request that these conflicts cease and personal opinion and knowledge allowed to be shared freely (as intended?) with the usability factor allowed to the individual reader (as intended?).
