Not about the Camaro abuse thread so much
 
Could a moderator explain which rules to the forum was broke to have the 'Camaro abuse' thread and the follow on thread of 'why the thread deleted' were closed for comments. As a service member I bite my tonge as not to have my comments misrepresented as a statment from my service. I do not loose any sleep over this because I know that we as service members are defending the first amendment right of the nation not to be censored even when I personnally don't agree with it.

Forum rules don't have anything to do with the 1st amendment. I hate these threads. JS

Thanks for your service though!

habunow1, since I didn't read or see either thread you mentioned, but if you hadn't seen or read these, you might be able to see which rule was broken...... THE C5 RULES

Yep. Unfortunately, this is the case.

Of course, what's the point in having a first amendment if you can't actually excercise it?

I won't even get started on how over-censored this forum is. :banned::bs:

I agree with you.

Unfortunately, since we don't own it, moderate it or pay to keep it going, we can't make the rules, and if we don't like the rules-- we can just go elsewhere. Which some people have. Personally, I'll stick it out with C5 because the good outweighs the bad for me, most of the time :D

habunow1 10-08-2012 12:41 PM

Then what was the reason? Was it libable by members or can you not say anything questioning the quaility of sponsors/dealer of products? I would believe that is one of the reasons members would join to become more informed of these things.

Google it. This is blowing up.

We may have to go to other sources to keep updated, and if that's what this forum is about, that's sad.

Vendors and members alike here have a BUNCH of my money. :D

Read the rules before posting and could not find which one was violated.

Mr. iNCREDIBLE 10-08-2012 12:47 PM

bottom line, the forum is privately owned and operated so the only rules that matter are their rules.

A forum is not a democracy, it is not a newspaper, or media broadcast, it is a blog where any Tom, Dick or Harry can post opinions, that usually are not based in fact, as such the moderators and administrators must do what they feel is in the best interest of their BUSINESS..

Yes this is a business, it is here to make someone money, so whether we like it or not they will censor, delete, move, moderate, and close any thread that doesn't line up with their business plan and rules.

--

Not siding with the moderators, (as I don't agree with the disapearing thread mentality either), just pointing out the truth of things.

I agree with the money part but sometime you have to standup for what is right. Do you really want sponsors to cheat your members and does that not make you just as bad as them.

At least they could post a reason when they close a thread.

If they delete/close this thats fine but would you think it bad business to start practices which pisses off your target market. We all have the freedom to go other places and that is what happens when they are not happy. It would be just as easy to explain to everyone and the subject would be close wether we agreed or not.
