These posts arise occasionally because, out of frustration, someone comes over here to post because something has happened that forces them to finally understand Pete's "big brother" routine and get fed up. It's how we started here, and believe you me, I should have left SOF well before I pissed him off to the point of being banned for resisting that sort of behavior.
The fact remains that Peter's actions a year ago (which were similar to your experience) forced several of us to split off and re-group with the intentions of doing something a little different, and we hope, better, a forum without censorship, taking free speech into consideration, and with no sponsorship cluttering up the forum.
Vendors are free to post what offers they like here, and that includes Chuck, who is well respected among us. Please feel free to post your offer here.
Because we have a PUBLIC forum, none of our forums are private to guests. To my knowledge, Peter has never registered here because he has no reason to, he can come and go as he pleases and read every forum. He just cannot post unless he joins - just like any other guest. So, let him spy away, I don't care. I have considered making certain areas private so that our members don't get into "trouble" over there, but it really goes against why we started this forum, so I have not changed anything to cow-tow to Pete's issues. We aren't about censorship here. You should be able to talk freely and any reprocussions elsewhere are, frankly, not my problem.
I do not want this forum to ever be an "us" against "them" issue, but I try to be up front about what happened with Pete and I and how this all came about, and I find that honesty is the best policy - better to have it out there - Pete and I will never see eye to eye and Slippertalk will always be different, and better, because of that. I think it is clear from the posts in this message that the way he has continued to run his forum since last June (and before) shall only continue to eventually bite him in the ass.
(Had to throw that in for a little humor.)
If anyone ever has questions about our falling out please just PM me I have no problem talking about it, it isn't a secret, and I have plenty of documentation to back it all up.
