unfair/untrue rumors may be like a run on a solvent bank adding to problems if they are unfounded. Would you buy a Mercury if you heard they were closing their doors?

Here's the problem I see now. There is no more "OSO" decides. The new company has apparently taken a back seat and set the auto pilot on. There are those that have control to delete posts (and ban people I believe) but I would assume all the moniotors have their own agendas (friends, connections in the industry they dont want to burn, self fullfilling reasons at times, etc). With out an impartial party to be the absolute oversee'r (not that Steve or Jeffrey were impartial ) you'll always have agenda's when dealing with banned members and deleted posts.

So, whatever. Someone delted a post that they felt was false. Good enough for me.

Come up with some proof of the facts and then possibly it wont get banned. However, maybe it will due to the fact negative press just further fuels the negative (in cases like this) and seeing as some have good friends with in these companies they don't want to see negative things happen to them...Again, personal agenda.

There's rumors flying all over about boat companies going out of business from west coast to east coast. The day any company closes their doors, it will be posted on OSO gauranteed! Until then don't speculate.

Anyway, keep on keepin' on.

No rason for the thread delition.. More politics at OSO??/
A question was asked.. comments were posted..
Is this one any better?
"MTI and Outerlimits in trouble - where did the thread go?"

Better see this thread poofed REALLY QUICK.
Whatever happend to freedom of speech and oppinion??
No rules were broken. Not that I realy care, but I do think it's unfare. Like I said before. I know some of the Builders and have pretty good feel of what's going on, and won't adverstise it here. However.. poofing a thread from preasure from sponsers, just not right.
May be there WAS some truth in the thread to scare some of them to have the thread deleted. My .02
I plan to see Mike F. from OL in a while.. (I owe him a tape with his son and me).. How about some really interesting comments and post regarding some boats and other companies? What about Velocities troubles? Baja? etc. etc. Is it getting to be that we all have to watch what we say or post? fearing for deletion? I have no beef against any manufacturers, but deleting a thread that really didn't do anything is just not right. No "Claim" was made. No accusations. Post were provided, answeres were offered.
I heared from the News Media that GM, Chrysler and Ford was in trouble. Now days every one in phucking trouble. OSO deleting every comment and question? Unless it's about some BS.. TD nonsence?

Right....
