No, you did not read it right. And that is why not you and not anybody else will judge anything for me. So, don't waste my time.It reads to me like you are asking for a place on the Rotary Wing Forum to post things that Todd doesn’t want on the Rotary Wing Forum.
I feel that is not going to work out.
I take the responsibility seriously and will endeavor to earn your trust.
The simple answer is if you want to insult someone or talk politics take it somewhere else.
Georgi:Well, it starts like that: In "old times" we had a lot of knowledgeable people who shared with us their wisdom on this Forum. And we were very appreciative to them for that, but have never stood up and sang "Glory" every time their names were mentioned. Thank God, many of them are still with us now. Of course, everything is changing. New people - new "atmosphere". But I hope "WOKE" won't crawl in. Meanwhile, why not start ( for "wonderful yet suspicious" people like me) a new thread "Deleted posts"?
Abid, to get there, first you need to be a real clown. You are great at what you do now with gyros. So, hope you won't change your profession
"if you think about it objectively, you'll have to admit they were justified whether you agree or not."I want to thank Vance and Kevin for stepping up and taking on the moderation duties. I can tell you from experience, its a thankless job.
As they've both said, if you think for some reason, they've become heavy handed, shoot me a message but please take some time to look at all sides before doing so. I think in almost all instances, if you think about it objectively, you'll have to admit they were justified whether you agree or not.
Georgi, you appear to be looking for a fight. This is not the place.
Sir, I respect you and all your real contributions to the gyro movement tremendously. And same respect to Todd. And if I knew in advance, that I can not ( have no rights) to see the removed post I would not do a poop to excite our pеаce loving Forum and rather spend time on cleaning my gyro rusty exhaust pipe.Sometimes we just talk past each other!
I'm not trying to be argumentative or obtuse.
Todd “owns” this forum. He owns it just as surely as he owns his house, his business, his vacant lot, or his vehicle. It is his!
Todd doesn't charge us for use of “his” forum. Laws that require a business to be nondiscriminatory do not apply. There is no freedom of speech issue here.
Todd has established rules for participation in his forum. We can either follow his rules or not. If we choose to not follow the rules, we can go elsewhere. I believe it is disingenuous for any of us to complain that our rights are being abridged by censorship while defending “our” rights and ignoring the right of an owner to determine how he wants his property to be used.
I'm really grateful to Todd and his forum management crew, Vance and Kevin.
Ben, your inhumane sarcasm just kills my innocent me. I will lock myself in my bedroom and start rereading "War and Peace" by Leo T. till I'll feel, that I am a good and worthy person again and will be able to make our World better.And with that, the crowd dissipated, and went back to the trudgery of their lives.....
There was no ire involved Ben.Not to rehash stuff over and over repetitively (Tyger) but I had a relativly innocuous post deleted by a moderator yesterday.
I did not feel my post was worthy of such ire and it was not a personal attack. I don't feel it was a political post, but rather was highlighting the wordplay in the post above it.
I merely mentioned the name of a politician and "Zappo!" It was vanished faster then my Jewish ancestors in 1942 Hungary.
Thats fine, Its a private forum and Mods are Gods and all.
But if we are now going ro be cancelled for sarcasm, cynicism or snideness I don't know what else to I will be able to ever say.
I suppose I could apologize to all the people whose feelings I have hurt with my post. I could just quote a famous actor here about all my tials and tribulations that led me to this terrible situation.
But I won't.
I could promise to never ever again be "cheeky" in my postings, but like the old man said "Son sincerity is the key, once you have that faked everything else is easy!"
So to recap, I am a target for being memory holed because I was born and raised in New York, a place where word play is considered an art form.
Watch what you guys say.
