I was also wondering what happened to the streamtech thread? I heard a difference of opinions there got someone booted and the thread deleted. Is that true? If not, what happened and where is the thread?

I'll tell you what. There are only like 5 of us who know the whole story. So chances are you heard from one of them involved. So if you want to private message me with ALL the details you have and WHO gave you this info I can sort out who is FOS and who is telling truth.

Should have chimed in earlier on this but it's a busy day.

These days the WFF forum as a whole is moderator lightly. This time of year we do tend to focus more on the watercraft sub-forum. Why? It's sales season for the boat manufacturers with all the shows going on and folks signing on to push their vested interests is common during this season. Frequently the approach is to shill for a product / manufacturer or attack others anonymously.

Regarding that last bit. Can you participate on the site anonymously while still being free to express your opinion? Of course you can. In this case his approach flavor'd of an attack, and while you're free to remain anonymous on the site but if you're attacking (which he clearly was) unless I can verify that you're a consumer and not representing another manufacturers interests, I'll make the call whether to allow you to participate further or not.

Could I have made a mistake here? Yes. That's why I left a note with the "banned" notice. "Tossing you from the WFF forum. Your approach isn't appreciated without knowing who or what your representing. Until that changes, your not welcome to post here. If you wish to discuss it, my email is ...". It could have easily been cleared up if he was on the up and up, but he chose not to.

We have no favoritism towards certain manufacturers, just a focus to keep the site marketing/sales free, save for occasional exceptions extended to it's sponsors.

Gotta run.

I'll agree that accosted was a little overdramatic, but the first response to my thread was characterized by suspicion and ridicule. I do, however, appreciate the welcoming, respectful, informative and on topic reply from Freestone-thanks. And I really hope that this thread does not become locked. I think it would be a great dis-service to your members to not allow this sort of open correspondence. I know that this site is funded by sponsors who don't want their competitors to get advertising for free, but members should be allowed to express their opinions freely and openly, without having to allude to or edit out the names of their favorite/least favorite inflatable manufacturers.
What did I do to ridicule you? You seem easy to agitate. I was not attempting to ridicule, but wanted to see if you were "that guy" from before. It is a fair question, like it or not.

So I have heard a number of unflattering things about this site, mainly that people get banned for making unpopular statements, particularly those that seem to have criticisms over dave scaddens boats. I was just wondering if this is true, and if so why that might be and whether I will get the boot just for bringing up the topic. .
I've been one of the loudest critics of NFO but all my comments are directly related to their customer service. If what you say is true about being banned, I'd have been gone a long time ago. Not to mention all the other BS I throw at members here on a regular basis. Ed? So, good luck with whatever it is you're trying to do here. Seems you're just trying to reinforce your own perception of this site.

Nope, I'm still here!

"I'm not initially impressed beyond the cool annonymous name."
that statement seems pretty ridicule-ous
-think about it

Really, you're on here trying to tell the mods what they should or shouldn't lock down, telling them what you think is informational to the members, etc.

Just kinda funny, really! I kept it to a minimum, your words don't need my interpretation.
