The polarization level in this thread is interesting and amazing.  It seems the thread is moving to extremes when it does not have too, almost as if people are forcing the extreme point of view intentionally....

....As far as I was concerned the event was over...  However the idea of being lumped in as as one of the "miscreants and the malcontents", and being "picked on" does not set well with me.  I hope you were not referring to my posts when you used the terms, "miscreants and the malcontents", and "picked on".  If so, please feel free to quote one of my posts, where I said or implied this.  If not, please accept my apology in advance for suggesting you might do this.

No, Dave, I was not referring to you.  I was referring to a couple of hams who did post in this thread however.  73!

Hi Guys,

I thought this thread was done but I feel the need to add my own response. Personally, I cannot understand why it wouldn't dawn on someone that posting a reviews link is inappropriate on a site like e-ham. I am not an experienced moderator nor am I a regular user here but even I understand this. It is just common sense and something one should consider when posting on a site like this. Perhaps, like all good behavior in life it comes down to basic manners which some people have and some people haven't.
Finally, I have always had a keen sense of justice and I apologize if some of my recent posts have seemed unfair. I hope people can resolve their differences here and can turn instead to the wonderful resource eHam is.

Dave,

I apologize if I misunderstood your original position/complaint. I had a search run in the forums, and found no evidence that you had a post removed.  So I assumed it was in the Reviews.  You claim it was not the Reviews so in this case, we are at an impasse at this point as far as I can see.

As far as the forum goes, we deliberately avoid getting in the middle of most conversations by editing or deleting posts, but sometimes we do, and, as often as not, regret it later.  In this thread, your complaint was really the only one that was "news" and so I cared about it, which is why I jumped in and "targeted" your post.  I still find it difficult to believe you would have had a post - to the forum - pulled deliberately by anyone here just because it had a link to an offsite review. Not saying it did NOT happen, but as far as I am concerned, it should not have.

As far as any emails being ignored, I know from first hand experience, with all the "noise" in my inbox, and life's other demands, that I "lose" a conversation from time to time, sometimes finding it months later.  I also admit to tiring of some debates and letting the conversation die.

Mike,

No problem at all, like the other fellow I thought this thread was thankfully dead. 

For the record:  I think you have a thankless job, so thank you for your efforts here.  I like eHam, and again for the record, I think it is run well, please don't take any of my posts as an attack in general on the eHam site  At all times, I was referring to a single event only.

Fred,

Should you wish to chat about this further, I will be happy too, feel free to email me directly.  I will cover why I believe your message here is inflammatory in eMail.
