“I feel that I made the right decisions for the right reasons.

Yes, this is your house and you can certainly run it as you see fit.
We all have the option of walking away should we choose to.
Or we can choose to hang out with other Uechi folk and MA people and may be make the community stronger.
Diversity does make the community stronger but if the diverse people walk away from these forums then you aren’t left with much to generate interest.
Although I did not get a chance to see it I understand the post on Bill’s forum questioning this was “less pointed.” The deletion generated some heat. Now that’s Bill’s forum and it is his to moderate as he sees fit but – slap a guy in the face don’t be surprised when he drops you.
Should insulting pictures be deleted? In my opinion -- yes. While I am not for deletion I have asked pictures be changed for less offensive ones on my forum.
However, the rules say no personal insults and when we cross that line then why shouldn’t we call people on it publicly.
You say Bill, and these are your words not mine, “can be a pompous ass at times.”
Okay, well Laird can be an upfront, say it as he sees it, in your face guy, who can be far more blunt than most people can handle. Laird will readily admit to this character flaw as well as Bill does his.
Does the pompous ass get to act that way because that is how he is, but the overly blunt guy not?
Is this then not a double standard?
(Again for those reading it the pompous ass comment was George’s and not mine.)
Hey we all tend to excuse behaviours of our friends more than others, but that is how double standards are created.
When you say, hey that’s just how Bill is, then…..
