Hey wicked. I'm not mad. I just disagree with selective enforcement. It's obvious that one person cannot read all of the material on this site to correctly enforce policies. I guess it may be possible. Some people believe there is a need to be policed and some don't. I have been on this site for a few years now and I do not intentionally single out anyone or attempt to cause issues. For a post of mine to get 'selected' is strange to me. I believe it should be all or nothing.

I'd also like to mention that my original post was moved this morning. It has now been closed since I voiced my opinion within this thread. If this isn't selective I don't know what is???

The moderating action was a no brainer. I received an Attn:RR on a topic asking for discounts. When you click "Create New Topic" it says don't do that.

The no brainer is that you cannot have neutral discussion when one of the parties obviously has the power to say and do what he/she wants and the other must oblige. I clearly should have not posted that simple question on the main discussion area. There are many posts that are in the wrong area. It's also obvious that you closed the thread after I entered into this discussion. The thread was originally just moved. It is not an involved thread and only takes a second or two to read. To allow some to post and others not is selective no matter how you slice it.

It's not the wrong area, it's against the law.

This is the only site that I am aware of that has a thread whose subject disparages another site's practices. Don't see a thread over at HF disparaging RR or Heliaddicts (UK site). Don't see a thread on RC Universe disparaging RC Groups, RC Scale Builder, Flying Giants, etc. and I don't see threads on those doing so to any other. Maybe I've just missed them?

What does that tell you? Perhaps nothing... maybe RR is more open to the extent that the OP felt the freedom to do so, I don't know. Its not agains any rules. So has this run its course? The conclusion is HF has overly agressive moderators?

thats good you dont get made but i used to feel heated when my post
where moved until i realized all i had to do was to word my topic
in a way where it fit in as a main discussion.

for example if i had a issue with my trex 700 i would not post
ever had this happen .

that way it might survive unnoticed in the main.

i also understand mark is only on man and he cannot read ever post
i am happy for what we have have on rr the classified section ROCK.

should mark get help ? heck no he is doing a good job best 1 man can.
and if my post gets moved or closed most of the time i am smart enough to know why and i understand so no biggy

might i add any other forum you go to will move your post to its proper plsce

I agree, the mods... I am assuming it was Will James that got ya? He makes me mad, he gets really mad really easily and takes anything insanely offensively.

You missed them alright.lol...

The anti RR threads get vicious at the other big one and when the really bad attacks start,they get moved but yes...They have done some true bashing and mudslinging with personal attacks on owners...It has really been BAD several times.

I literally never use the word literally right.

You got it Seefest, how bout a little cheese with the whine/sour grapes.

I've been on all of the heli and plank sites. Never seen a rant against another site before. Someone said I missed it; point it out for me.

The biggest problem I have with HF is that it's management is supportive to a fault of certain companies that spend big dollars on advertising. I get that there is a balancing act in running a company that is supported with dollars by the companies that purchase advertising. On the one hand you have the dollars that keep the site running. On the other you have the community of users who volunteer their time freely to add to the content that makes the site valuable to the community. Without both you have no forum. IMO HF has gone to far in at least one specific case in quashing deserved public criticism of a company and denying the free exchange of opinions among it's users going so far as to label users with legitimate complaints trolls. Do I still use the site? All the time, for the value provided by the users. HF is doing just fine and will likely continue for many years; however, IMO some of the decisions being made by the owner are not in the best long term interest of his company and that has potential negative consequences for all of us that use the resource.

FWIW when RR was going through the DDOS attacks awhile back there were many, not the owner, of the HF faithful that were salivating over the loss of this public resource. Sad indeed.
