    Dermot, could you post a link to those laws you are referring to, and also to the changes that have taken place?

    That's the sanest and wisest thing said on the Grumble in a long time.

    Anne and Steph you just spoke the whole truth and nothing but the truth in a few sentences. It's taken 3 pages to get to the point.

    I vote to close this down before it gets ugly again. It may be censorship, but you folks can duke it out in PM's just as well as you can on the G, but without the glam.

    Actually, they only spoke their opinion, as did you and I.

    Actually guys... if you want this thread to die, without starting another one blaming us "Willy-Nilly Moderators" for closing a thread, all you need to do is STOP POSTING TO THIS THREAD!

    Nuff said.

    Check out why Dell withdrew from the online forum they supported in the past…….other major supporters of other online forums have also withdrawn support…….

    That’s all I have to say on this subject……….believe me my source is impeccable …..

    If you need further information do your own research……..

    I really, really, really hate to keep this miserable, most stupid of " I am a poor victim/ martyr of...XYZ cause" threads alive, but:

    Dermot, a private forum is as private as a country club or a private house. One could opt to exclude grumpy old, racist white men, blacks, or green weenies.

    It's not a democracy and will never be. There is NO such law. Framer could ban you in a Grumble second and there NOTHING you can do. It's his right and HIS private forum!! If it's on the internet it doesn't mean it's not private. He could easily put a password on and exclude 99% of the Grumblers and still has the right to do i! Can you take him to court for that?? I really doubt it!

    So please get over it. Can we move on??

    Edit.....by Dermot


    I’m only the messenger …..well over 18 months research by a very large legal team in the US and around the world worked on what my statement is based on ……..and took action on it…..

    I understand if I’m not mistaking that you have some sort of legal background……..if you do your research the evidence of the action taken is out there…….

    The information I have is from a private source and is not for sharing on a public forum…

    I have shared the information source with some of the moderators of my knowledge……… in private….

    One mans mob is another mans herd of sheep.................The group hijacking usually takes place after a thread becomes ridiculous. Framing Fools post made this thread ridiculous. There was no misinterpreting or missing the essence of his chosen words on the written page. He mocks us we mocked back and it went from ridiculous to absurd.

    I don't always like it when somebody tries to change the subject. If it is someone who just wants everybody to make nice I always wonder why they are reading the thread. If it is to diffuse someones attempt to inflame the thread like Framing Fools was I love joining in. This is not mob mentality. It's a group of people joining together to run off a flame thrower. It's a good thing. Kind of like the group self moderating.

    You take an overt in your face approach to show your displeasure towards some Grumblers. What's better? Overt hostility or humor veiled in sarcasm and cynicism? I prefer the humor.

    We have plenty of diversity on the board. I'd be bored to death if everybody agreed about everything. Bob will be back. Cornel left claiming he would not participate in a board that would ban Bob. Ironically he returns after he has been banned himself numerous times. I can't help but point that out, the irony is too rich not to. I bet he will come back too. I hope so, he and I just made peace and I haven't had a chance to test the waters yet.

    All's well that ends well.

    Not sure if this thread is ending well, but it is ending. If there is anybody who has participated that's happier now than when it all started, I'm sorry for you.
