You joined my forum just to stir up shit,am I wrong ? Why do their rules trump mine? Notice though I let it run its course rather than edit or lock the thread.

Hey!
That will teach you a lesson Nutz.

Stay at home, on BW forum, don't go out and ask for troubles

It is going to be really restricted board.

Your genealogy will be researched up to 7th generation.

You will need a recommendation from your priest and two neighbors, and letter from the local DA office confirming good behavior.

Initial membership fee is set to $5000. After that it goes to $1000 per year.

Nope, way off target Ron on the reasons we started. It was started due to a couple of crybabbies over at the sandbox who couldn't stand when someone disagreed with them. They threatened many of my members as well as myself numerous times. I got banned for posting in open forum a threat that was made to me via PM by one of the moderators there with a chip on his shoulder.

Had nothing to do with the OD at all. It had everything to do with one moderator on an ego trip who couldn't stand being contradicted in an OD discussion. And which by the way he was NOT a moderator of the OD.

Our basic rules are if you want to behave in a juvenile manner there are other places. We expect our members to be professional and civil towards each other. No need to mention names as everyone who was there knows who it was, and its past history now.

And unlike the before mentioned site. We don't allow our moderators to threaten members, via PM or via E-mail that happens very frequently over there.

Threads get locked for various reasons. All of them clearly listed on our rules page. Happens here, happens at P3 and it happens at Mercedesshop all the time.

Me and Henry started our site due to the childish acts that were taking place over at the "other place".

And yeah....I'm the guy who is the Webmaster of Schumans.

How was I way off target? I may not have been detailed enough for you, but it does seem to be an MS spin-off, right? And no controversial political/religious topics are allowed, right? 'Cause that's pretty much what I said. The rest is just details that won't matter much to any but a few of the founding fathers there..

Maybe its just perspective. We have a lot of topics...we don't allow a few others.

Those who don't like it don't have to join. But we will not be a soapbox for a select few to preach their crap from. Our members like it that way.

Incidently...I looked into the accusations Nutz for Benz claims, I spoke with Henry directly as well. We have no threads locked that Nuts claim are locked. And we deleted none of said threads so the accusations are total complete bullshit to be blunt.

And any reason for locking or unlocking that thread had not one thing to do with you bitching or not. It had everything to do with the thread creator...who had the discretion to do with it as he wished which is part of being a moderator for me..

Exactly right -- no forum can be everything to everyone. They're all different and appeal to different folks for different reasons. Just as it should be.

I'm in full agreement with you. We never intended to be anyones clone when we started it. We have our way of doing things just as every other site has theirs.
