Still waiting, but notice that waroo advertising is still going strong.....Quote:
I find it very interesting that Fo got banned but if you go to the facebook group 'say no to kiteforum' and take a browse through the members profiles you will find a number of people that belong to to it and who post and advertise on kiteforum like Shannon Best. I would think that this would be the biggest form of disrespect as it is directed completely at the efforts of you Toby and your website overall
Toby, still haven't seen a response to this however I have noticed that Best is still getting ad space after such a blatent show of disrespect. Curious as to how one is justified over the other. Perhaps the letters are in the mail....
So... you were not editted, censored, or anything of the sort. You basically didn't trust that your criticism would be accepted, so you "self-censored"? (or is that "chickened out"?) That's too bad.... I have not seen Toby make it a practice of censoring criticism. Quite the opposite. He has been pretty thick-skinned in his operation of this forum.

I edited it to keep from getting banned on here and on FKSA.
I am not well liked by some of those in the industry, as I tend to point out things I see as bad for the sport.
"No need for moderators?" Please hurry and establish your web site! Let the lessons begin!

Rest assured, it will truly be "By Kiters, For Kiters" with no need for moderators.
Feel free to contact me if you have an existing association or would like to set one up in your area.

I would expect that would be the best reason for banning.... 'cause of other members bleating... i.e. otherwise it would just be singularly subjective decision making.... If enough people are complaining about a particular member's behavior... and the moderator approaches the person with requests for behavioral modification... and the person responds with rowdy, combative challenges with continued affronts.... with the result being exile.... that sounds like fair process to me....Kevin Salter wrote:Earlier in this thread some one made the point that none of us were defending Fo or his posts and opinions,,,,,,,,,,we were simply questioning if some one should be banned cos of other members bleating.
