Do the honorable thing and hari kari this thread. It is pointless, inaccurate, and just plain stupid.

No, I actually have no idea who it is, nor do I care. We all had a chance to read the terms and conditions while signing up, and I think common sence tells you that he who owns the site dictates its content. So there is no reason to become a poodle over threads closing. We all would close a thread if our neck was on the line for possibly innacurate content that could be deemed slander on a public forum. At the end of the day the owner of the site is more responsible than the person posting the thread. Im just putting myself in Steves shoes for a minute and using common judgment. Unlike posting a thread about stopping threads on a site who stopped the thread that the thread starter dint want stopped...Dizzy yet

That is totally inappropriate we are paid members and as paid members we should not be threatened or talked to in such a manner.

Lets be intellectually honest here... Steve has little or no liability for slanderous statements by members on his forum, that is just the excuse for poofing some threads that create inherent conflicts of interest. Fact is that although we as the forum members represent a portion of his income the advertisers do also but with the added benefit of being able to give percs that we dont have. Nothing wrong with that! The fine line that has be walked is that of avoiding the unjustfied bashing of advertisers while ensuring that scumbags arent taking advantage of his forum members. I submit that he seems to do a pretty good job although he errs on the conservative side when it comes to allegations about advertisers. This past week has been tough because alot of GOOD people with credibility on this forum have found out that they are in for a rough road. Unforunately at the same time OSO seemed to be trying to quiet the situation. Maybe next week will bring better news!!!

This is great and your going to love it because I'll make more money and so will OSO.
