It seems the leaders of this forum have lost sight of the fact that its purpose always was and always should be to provide a venue for discussion. Now, it is a venue for discussion - but only of the positive side of topics. If removed - and apparently, everyone else on staff - doesn't agree with the OP's viewpoint, then the viewpoint gets censored in the form of being moved away from the discussion forum in which it belongs, to what has now become the phins.com gulag: the club lounge. I'm calling out Mal and George for allowing this abuse to happen in their name. I'm calling you out for allowing the censorship of valid ideas and discussions simply because a vocal few just don't ****ing like what's being said. Or, in Marty's case, because he doesn't like me and certain others who happen to agree with me. I think your silence on this matter is a shame, Mal and George. Your tacit approval of this censorship of members who paid to be here just the same as those few who want to be able to tell others what to say is even more a shame. And your continued employment of removed as a Moderator, a position of power which he does not deserve, reflects poorly on you and the community WE built together. Letting him run roughshod over other members without consequence, letting him insult and deride members repeatedly without consequence, letting him be successful in his attempts to carry out a personal agenda in the guise of his duties to the site...that's entirely on YOU. Letting him do what he's done to me, in public, without consequence, tells me how little you value someone who has been loyal to you sincewe've known each other.
