nah, that's not the point

on HF some members cannot handle the truth [reality], they would rather exist in a fairy-tail [unfair] forum, even some of the Mods,
their solution is to ban members

It is cool that Mark is active on "his" site. That certainly brings and shows a high level of personal engagement and is to be applauded.

RC Scale Builder is a site that has the owner actively participating in the entire breadth of thread categories that they have. I've not seen any site "owner" as involved as he is. In my opinion that site is the best out there in terms of great dialog and I have yet to see any sort of negative postings towards anyone by members or moderators.

While it is essentially for all intents and purposes a plank site, it doesn't exclude Helicopters. Its just that it is a scale site and so far no topics focused on helicopters have been generated. Someone with a scale project should go over there and do so. Lots of the plank information in regard to scale would transfer over nicely to a scale helicopter so there is much to learn.

i think they just want people to act like adults
but i guess it would be nice if a person had a chance to explain
before getting banned.

but some people threat us like internet traffic without any regards to our feelings we are people here humans with feelings and emotions for these guys that kick and ban us like we are so worthless after we love and respect them so until we get the boot.

me i know how to walk a straight line in any forum without getting banned took my sometime to master but i am sold as a rock i cant be pushed.

I would have to agree with one point in reference to HF, moderators have gotten a bit heavy handed like it or love it that's life.

Ugly can be fixed stupid is forever!

That's probably because they've all worn themselves out arguing at club meetings.

Just kidding.

On a more serious note, this thread hasn't exactly gotten out of hand on bashing. If it did, I imagine Mark would have moved/closed it by now. I've seen him do so in such threads that did.
There's a difference between "bashing" and expressing opinion.
"I am very disappointed" is not bashing IMO. Now some may have dragged it a little toward bashing, but remains mostly expression of opinion IMO.
Squashing "expression of opinion" is not good leadership.

TOTALLY!

I think, on any site, it depends a lot on what threads you are active in...I have absolutely no complaints about HF, never had a problem.
The only time I was "out of line" so to speak, I was politely informed of the reasons it was that way...if I don't get told I'm wrong, I don't know I need to improve!

I was a freak member for a while... I don't think I'm alone on this, but many good members over there that don't post. Its ran by a few members that over run the site and ruin it for everyone. I've been hanging over here for a while now, but don't really post much. I'll probably change that. Good site over here, and good members

4 life ouch
what you do post a opinion about a mfg that you didn't like ?

or maybe someone else s negative text message

i can understand getting banned for using x-rated language
or posting a x-rated picture repeated trolling or repeatedly harassing a member spamming etc,

but not for the first two things i said you may have gotten banned for

i got banned from nutcase forum for posting and being a member of xheli forum .
the thing some people ban a person for can be so ridiculous and petty and small

Towpilot called another member a "stupid uneducated miscreant".
I made a single post about it and said he was a hypocrite when it comes to the "mutual respect" thing.

Will called my cell and I refused the call...POOF...I'm gone for good.

They didn't even ban me.
I got no infraction or email.
I'm still actively logged in.

They just permanently disabled my account so I can't post

I literally never use the word literally right.

I havent contributed in a while, but I wanted to chime in about HF too. If you ask me, they are a bunch of illiterate, disrespectful adolescents who are part of their own "good ol' boy" club. They publicly dispect people constantly. I made a jokingly sarcastic post about a pro's signture (http://www.helifreak.com/showthread...269#post5212269) and I got banned for it! Really? It was a joke but apparantly, I am a disrespectful know-it-all. One time, I asked why a thread about race boats were on the main forum, and Will has to respond like a sarcastic ass. One time, he posted a guy's personal information. Really? How Effing professional are "you" guys?
So Will tried to talk to you and you refused the call, then you are surprised your banned. Hummmm.
Who is he? A teenage girl who unfriends someone just because her phone call wasnt answered? Doing things just to spite someone is pretty lame

Your comment was a reply to MY comment.lol....

The OP in that thread went on to try and run a scam with that canopy.
I also made a joke about the canopy later that was sort of calling out a scammer...I was banned for two months for that one.
My comment was in a classified ad from the scammer.

I said "He also has a signed canopy up for auction for charity...and it's really real too.lol...".
The canopy auction was proven to be a scam.

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread...425#post5214425

Almost immediately after the two months is when I made the comment to Towpilot for his personal attacks and I was gone for good.

I told him "Sure the guy is being a jerk but what you said to him was way worse".
I was banned for life for supposedly calling the victim of Towpilot's attacks a jerk and not my comment to Towpilot

Again...I'm not bashing...It's their site and they can run it however they want...Lots of people like it.

I just thought this coincidence was funny.

I literally never use the word literally right.
