I received a notice from Amazon in this morning's Email, informing me that my most recent post violated the forum guidelines. Those of you who have been reading my posts here know that I was kicked out of Amazon's discussions and my posts deleted at least two weeks ago. I can only conclude that the Amazon forums administrators must be rabidly biased and/or mentally challenged. Facepalm

That happened to me as well. Being booted wasn't enough, now they add insult to injury. I may have gone too far in my reply to that e-mail.

Looks like they zapped Wolf as well. The forum is finished.

I wonder why they suddenly came over all pious? And why not just shut the forum down if they were gonna eviscerate it like that?

RE: Amazon Refugee Roll Call
I know how difficult it is to make a jump from one, well-worn forum where you have a long history to a new one where you have to start from scratch.

The great thing for all of you is that you have come in a posse of sorts and while you may be new to us and us new to you you guys still have each other’s back.

The only way to get acclimated is to dive head first as some of you already have (looking at you Jay Vogelsong, Mary L. Mand, M. Linoge, Dr. H, Dorsie).

I think of you differently than I would of a complete newbie, you guys come with experience and that is a great thing. So chime in early and often!

Mike Pence took over.

Actually this place is great compared with Amazon (where I had mixed feelings for years). I get to post the same ideas over again and they will seem new to people. Smile

The best part is you can post them over and over and they will always seem new to most here.

Considering how the amazons have been treated I consider it a treat to have them amongst us, this is the problem with a forum hosted by a mail order delivery company, no morals except profit

I haven't been kicked off...yet. I'm starting to think of it as a badge of honor.

It's possible they want to keep the ones that actually discuss merchandise. Possible.
