    I would like to keep it just so that the other mods can see a different point of view. Also so that they will not be able to ban that person b/c they don't like what they read.

    When the AT thread appeared, it seemed genuine, and everybody (including me) behaved appropriately with a woman who portrayed herself as a neophyte archer.
    But, when you use your #$# for a Billboard, you should expect a different response.
    I doubt the posts attributed ot her were genuine either. It was obviously a stunt.
    Leave it.

    I'd be very careful of what I believed over there.

    I think we should leave it, but lock the thread.

    If you're not going to kill it then atleast move it to the off topic section. Just because there is a bow in the pic doesn't mean it is archery related. Just my opinion.

    Oh, and Chris this is a great forum and it are instances like this, where you take control but still leave the decision to the members, that make it so great. Great Job.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    Jesus Christ & The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Some People spend their whole lives wondering if they made a difference in the world.
    Luckily our Service Men and Women don't have that problem.

    As I have said, a forum is what it is, because of it's members. Yes, I have the final say BUT that does not mean the members should not have a voice. Their/your opinion, your threads, your voice, make this site, without you, it's just a pile of hardware and software.

    Let's not blow off rule # 1 of the forums in the process of letting everyone have a voice.

    "While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters."

    It hasn't been blown off. The Admin's final decision in this matter was to allow the members voice their opinion prior to making a final decison.

    Oh, and I voted to remove the thread due to those reasons.

    I agree that Chris is doing what he is supposed to. However a lot of posters did in fact blow off rule # 1. In voicing your opinion, you should adhere to the rules. This is also why I voted to remove it.

    I agree; and like Bowman was saying, a third party looking in may get the wrong opinion about this site if they were to run across those posts. It started out as a discussion about what was going on over at AT that ended very poorly.

    But if the thread is removed based on Rule #1... I want all posts and threads deleted that violate rules #2 , 3 and 9.
    2 - “Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.”

    3 - “Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.”

    9 - “While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other archery products.”


    I also want members banned for violating Rule #14…
    14 - “Keep signatures to 5 lines or less.”

    I am being cynical on this, but I think Chris had taken a great stand on allowing us to speak freely and openly on any product or subject with interjecting only once in a great while. The rules are guidelines and IMO should not be rules to live and die by.

    "That government is best which governs least” --- I think Chris should continue to manage this forum the same way.

    I still recommend that we keep and lock the thread.
