get this "democracy" issue every now and then, and as the lady says, the forums
are run and owned by someone. They set the rules because they want to in some cases and because they have to in others. Some forum owners have let things get out of hand and have ended up being sued by people or businesses that feel they have been slandered, and can understand how the owner/s of any forum want to avoid that. The same if they choose to make it a G-rated forum where they feel that their children/relatives/friends can visit at any time and not be faced with profanity and bad manners. There are many forums out there which have been taken over and ruled by the keyboard heroes and bullies, it's cool to be part of one that is not.
Congrats to both the posters and the admins/ mods for this.
After that little piece of drivel, welcome back to you anyway, hope you are enjoying whatever you are doing.
