T2X, Always nice to hear a few well thought out words on a subject we have all thought about at least once or twice. I thing Bashing is often confused with Slander. One can give an opinion of quality and reliability, also an opinion of a circumstance with out it being slander. I have, on more than one occasion had threads and or comments magically disappear when I have given them as opinion and not fact. Although disturbed that I am sharing an opinion with others that may either learn or at the least begin to ponder from my point of view, Those responsible for this site could be sued! Society as I see it (Opinion Time) has put a gag on our first amendment rights and we are censored by those who face the music on our behalf. So to cut this short. Is there "Bashing" on OSO??? Absolutely, as there should be. We give our opinions and point of views until a thread gets poofed. That is the point of the public forum. Opinions and sharing of knowledge. This site used to have some great debates that we all learned from...To the point where you would read a thread and then call those involved. Unfortunately the word "Bashed" was overrun by the word "Slander" and we all learned the word "Censored". We cannot Blame Steve or Jeff, Only those of us that are thin skinned and could not retort...only call our Lawyers!
