But again I'll say, its THEIR forum. They can do as they wish. There is some truth to your statement though. There has been a decline in the pro's input... As in..

Jack
Gueze (banned)
Bill
And others.....

Why they choose to post their expertise in other places and not here... that's up to interpretation.

True.Very true.Just like the restauarant down the street.They can do as they wish.The customers are the reason why they are open.A selection of elite tilesetters very far and few in between is what drew me into this forum.Im not saying that there arent any heavy hitters left on this forum,Im just saying that there has been alot that have chosen to spend there internet time elsewhere.

Situations like this have contributed to that.Thats why Im getting all "pissy" about it.What is better for a tile forum?A select group that can never be replaced?Or biased non-tile computer folks that have a hard on to put the hammer o those who may not see the world in their kaleidascope?

I dont care.TYW is very near and dear to my heart.I cant stand FB.Not only have I learned immensely from this forum,I have met many of the best artisans that I would have never met otherwise.Some of them are not only the most genuine,talented,kind hearted,and sincere tile masters on this planet,but also some of the best people you will ever meet.They are no longer with us.

This is why I question antics and forum rules and who enforces them.If CX doesnt see a problem,but yet someone has to come in afterwards and regulate (due to obvious personal bias's)something is wrong with the entire equation.

Hmmm, I seem to recall your early days here differently. But it could just be me.

As for the rest of your post, you've got to be kidding me. You act all snarky and smart assed to anyone who disagrees with you, then wonder why this sort of thing happens? Really? Same thing with a couple of your lamented, no longer here posters. Sure, great talented tile setters, but pretty much assholes to anyone who disagrees with them, or anyone who holds a different ideological/political position than they do. Not Jack of course, he's a cool dude who can have a civil debate with someone who disagrees with him. You, not so much.

The moderation team here is more than fair, it is you who has the problem.

Oh, and who are these "biased non-tile computer folks" you are referring to? Name names.

One might consider that dialog, such as within this thread, may in fact contribute to driving these people to give their time on other sites.

If you must....The scab picking, back biting, bickering over who's feelings may or may not have gotten breached by who meant what by whomever said it to who in a may or may not be mistaken context.

That type dialog.
