Think I'll put on some Mellencamp now. Everyone sing along......... "I fight authority, authority always wins........"

That is all for now. I don't want to be "terminated".

Exclamation Re: Must Be Nice To Be The Boss

+1 and done. Love the site, not the screws . Free speech Hmmmmm . Closing treads won't allow the feed back and restricts the user to start another one of similar nature. Everyone should be allowed their views. Enjoy the site and all the knowledgeable folks. Without them this is a lost cause. Do not believe anyone is attempting to ripoff another. More about sharing knowledge.

Well for starters, how about the first amendment?
I realize you're in Canada so maybe that's not an issue up there.
I also realize the constitution is there to protect us from the government and you folks don't have to abide by it, but it makes a pretty good guideline for doing business.
Secondly, perhaps slander.
I could see where a good attorney could make a case for INTENTIONALLY misquoting someone as slanderous, depending on the circumstances. Certainly, intentionally misquoting someone is unscrupulous at the least.
Third, and perhaps the most important, it really bothers me that someone entrusted with keeping this forum open and honest seems to sometimes stray from that mission, when they perceive that the opinions of others need to be censored when the website membership numbers could suffer from dissenting opinions.

Sure, Dave and others may be considered third members to a certain degree from time to time by some of us, (no offense Dave) but they’re our third members and I for one resent the fact that you seem to be trying to run them off because they don’t fit nicely into your idea of what an acceptable poster is.

Good day.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
