    Default Appreciation for integrity!

    After the quick dismissal of the closed thread regarding a famous acoustical engineer and the use of his name for questionable benefit, I wish to commend the integrity of the site owner and moderators. This is, by and large, an over the top site for sharing information and opinions, allowing extremely wide latitude for conversation.
    When there is questionable motive for a threads purpose, the discretion of the moderators strikes me as uncommonly fair and reasonable.
    To that end, I say,
    HUZZAHS for Scott et al

    Strong work gents!

    I disagree. It was preemptively locked up. No one was heated and the discussion was fine. I am on a lot of forums and topics get regurgitated all the time. It's not reason to just lock it up.

    It is pretty fair place and the moderators keep the Cafe on point and that would be mandolins. There is plenty of bickering on other sites and on FB. The Cafe can be a breathe of fresh air in the putrid din of the internet.

    I am by no means upset by the decision and I totally understand either side of the argument on moderation.

    I understand your point but, the guidelines are pretty clear and, it's within reason for the site owner to quash a thread which may (and probably) will get testy. This one included!
    Not my intent to be inflammatory by any means, simply appreciating the responsibility of the moderators.
    Sorry if that is an irritant.

    Site doesn't take kindly to threads discussing the moderators' actions. How I know, is having run a-foul of that years ago.

    Good and sufficient reasons therefor. Enough to talk about in Mandolin World without rehashing how the Cafe´s administered.

    Appreciate you input Alan, I have not felt any wrath but will happily allow the closure of this one should mods feel the need.
    I guess I will go back to the corner and don my dunce cap, ohh, there is one more for the " compulsory thread"!

    It seems to me the thread was locked on the basis of redundancy, not volatility.

    There's nothing like a good internet handbag swinging fight! I'm also glad this forum isn't the place for it.
