LOL - Had my first taste of censorship...

Recommended Posts

I just had my first experience with being censored on a payware support forum...LOL...wasn't even asking for help or being critical of a product (actually I was praising a product of theirs, but being critical of a particular biz decision). It seems that if you're not _completely_ kissing their butt, don't bother posting...heh, hehLike the sig says...

The forum in question is _not_ hosted on AVSIM; but that's all I will say. No big deal really...I just thought it was funny...I guess it's a badge of honor in a stupid sort of way ;)

Suprised in the same way you would be if you were thrown out of because you suggested that you didn't want to have to eat fries with your burger - that maybe you just wanted a burger and would buy fries if/when you wanted them.If you were standing in the middle of the place shouting about how crappy the burgers and fries are...that's a different story...Puny analogy, and I must clarify that I haven't been "thrown out" of any forum. My post was just deleted and a phony sounding post was placed by a "mysterious" person who was giving great praise to the "burgers must come with fries" argument."No soup for you!" LOLI try to be helpful to other users on support forums - give solutions to problems I've found and/or confirm the existence of a "feature" so that they don't feel alone when the developer responds with "it works on my machine" (I've been a software developer for many years so I know the attitude well). But if I'm expected to pucker up every time I post, then forget it...

Just curious why you are shy about posting what forum/product.Frankly, I would without a second thought. The truth is the truth, and not liable.

Because it is a fine company with fine people who make and publish fine products. I harbor no ill will toward them at all. I just think it's funny how they over-reacted (IMO).I'm sure the experiences most developers have had with some customers have incited them to be hyper-sensitive. But sweeping things under the rug is a somewhat dubious way of dealing with reality.I've said my piece enough already...
