For those of you that  did not notice, the "Feedback" forum at QTH.Com was discontinued.  See : http://chat.qth.com/viewtopic.php?t=11762

For the last several months I followed it on a almost daily basis. There was quite a bit of controversy on almost a weekly basis with one of QTH.Com's paid advertisers "radio-mart" . Several times I noticed that whenever someone posted something negative about him it was soon removed. I noticed this and complained to Scott ( KA9FOX ) . Apparently I was not the only one that noticed as several other people complained publicly about it too. A few times I saw entire threads removed, only to reappear days or weeks later when enough people asked why.

Does eHam have these problems ? I have never seen them here. What is the difference between QTH.Com's feedback forum and eHam's ?

I do have a problem with a website accepting advertising dollars from a company and then removing negative posts about that company when someone has a problem. If this was not the case it seems they went out of their way to make it look like it.

You left out two words:  "FOR NOW"

Could just be that the moderator is working on a better system.

If you will look at the "Radio Mart" posts on this website, you will notice it has a lock on it.  It makes you wonder.

Actually I don't think it was closed due to Radio Mart at all.  I think it was closed due to the thread dealing with the dirt bag that did a switch a roo on an ICOM radio which was supposedly  bought for a radio club. etc etc... the thread go pretty heated and it was then that Scott shut it down.  I don't think it had anything to do with Radio Mart at all.
