No, I did not. I opposed SOPA/PIPA.
why do you feel the need to address tangential questions, yet refuse to answer questions that get to the heart of the matter:
What, exactly, was threatening the forum to necessitate a change and prompt the Mods to clamp down on the trash talking on the OT and FC forums?
That question is now irrelevant, as I have unlocked the thread.
but it still needs to be answered and dealt with, not just a Band-Aid put over it. And why was the tread unlocked - did the Mods change their mind or did Dave give his opinion?
We still don't know why you and other Mods perceived it as a threat in the first place. And until we lay that issue bare and deal with as a community, understanding each side's perspective/expectations/motives, nothing has really changed except the fact that one side gave in without any real reconciliation or even giving a reason.
This is NOT about winning or losing an argument, itís about coming to an understanding. And right now we donít understand what Dave wants, what he perceived as the problem that needed changing, and what necessitated the clamp down from the Mods.
We're not looking to "win" the argument, but we are looking to understand.
