this is ridiculous. i asked a legitimate question.
also, to the moderator that referred me to the TOS, i have read the TOS. very carefully.
i would be grateful if you could point me to the exact clause in the TOS that i violated by asking a simple question? i have not violated any of the express requirements of the TOS.
the only thing that comes VAGUELY close is the following
However, in order for you to act to move, edit or delete my thread, you will need to establish that what i said was "unacceptable" or "inappropriate". in any event, you dont include thread closing as part of your rights under the TOS.While we cannot monitor all the postings in the chat rooms, forums, photo galleries and other public areas, we reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any postings that come to our attention that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, of for any other other reasons, which we need not disclose, and which need not be reasonable. We will comply with the requirements of the law regarding disclosure of information transmitted via our site to others, including law enforcement agencies.
if you want to run this board like a police state, then please include something to that effect in the TOS. that way at least no one has a right to complain if you act in such a manner.
as far as i can see, i have not violated any requirements of the TOS and as such you have acted in a manner that is wholly oppressive and unreasonable in the circumstances.
