Alot of people have come and gone from this site over the years. Many have gone because of the BS.

I don't have a problem with the "Mods & OSO" or anyone else, just curious how things work here, as I am new. I did post a thread about the Beware & Stolen forum that was not accusatory or inflammatory, but rather just a suggestion on how that section could possibly help this industry and the people who choose to patronize it. Apparently the "mods" took it as positive, as they changed the wording of the rules for posting in that section. Some people seem to come here to simply flame others and try to incite people with negative comments designed to make their own egos inflate at the expensive of others. I see this on other types of forums and it is sad they can't communicate in a positive and informative manner, since most hold much knowledge and wisdom brought about by experience in a subject that would be very helpful to the newcomers. I do not come here to anger anyone, insult anyone or cause any trouble, only to learn and possibly help someone else if I happen to know any information that they might find helpful. And also sometimes, to just have a little entertainment in the cold winter time. If I offended anyone, my deepest apology.

You have to understand that MiniHawk has had a long history with OSO.... He was even served with legal papers due to his actions in the past. This last chance was a test - he failed terribly after being guided by my self and others on how internet forums work....

He will be serving a timeout..... end on story

I always thought that the mods on this site were fairly liberal with how long they let threads go. You should also understand that there is a lot of PM's and emails that go on in the back ground when we are trying to deal with people that are out of line. In fact I remember when the "other" board was started up they said that they were going to keep any of that from happening at all. As a Mod. you are kind of damned if you do and damned if you don't. I miss Cuda's rants they were about as funny as anything that has ever been posted on OSO but that did not make them good for the board....
