I, for another, also care. And while I would like to know what happened to bring things to the current situation, I know that it is between vwhobo and the others who are involved. It is unfortunate though that a knowlegable, and yes controversial, voice may not be heard here again.

But what concerns me even more is the comment that: "...many of his posts have been deleted...". If this is indeed the case...... While I am not privy to "why" his posts have been deleted, I find it hard to come up with an "acceptable" reason for this kind of censorship. I can understand taking out vulgarity, porn, and advertising in the best interest of the members, but vwhobo only spoke his mind and everyone is entitled to do that as long as it's done in an acceptable manner.

Who knows, maybe the moderators needed to free up some extra disk space so vwhobo's posts had to go. But as soon as history is rewritten, it can't be a good thing.

Ok, I looked into it further and it seems that there are still a lot of vwhobo posts out there. Faith has been restored. Just wanted to set the record straight.

I try to keep private business private as much as possible but since you're aware of mass deletion, it needs an explanation. Neither I nor any member of the moderation team have deleted his posts. He has, because of a difference of opinion that has lead to misunderstandig. We discussed the situation in private, he apologized and decided to leave the boards... There was no censorship of any kind involved...

Amen to that. I hope that he will one day come back and share his knowledge with us. It would be ashame to lose such a valuable asset to this forum.

I for one, never thought of any kind of censorship on this board, hope no one else does. This is one of the most open forums I have ever seen, as long as you keep it with in limits. A very fun and informative place to be,,,,, almost like a disfunctional family,,,,, nope, it's disfunctional
