Late last night (for me) and early this morning, Hangar had a disagreement with the Mudspike moderators about how the rules are applied. We started to try and work out a way forward for everyone but at that time he requested that all of his posts be taken down and deleted - and threatened legal action. We (I) viewed that as a request to deactivate and delete his account - so that was done.
I don’t want to get into a public discussion about that - it was his decision and it was acted upon.
A few minutes ago, a new user named Banished decided to make this a public issue and I strongly disagreed with that action and removed the post and the user. Please understand that I did not take that action lightly but I did not want to get into a back and forth over the topic. I apologize to anyone who replied, or was replying to the message.
If anyone wants to talk about this, please send a message to the @moderators account and we will respond as soon as we can. I am willing to respond in this thread but I just do not want it to get out of control.
Again. I apologize if this come across as a heavy handed action but while I was reading the thread, and the quotes taken out of context, I was getting somewhat frustrated and angry.
If you are concerned with this action, and don’t want to talk about it here, or with me, please contact @BeachAV8R directly. I will leave this post open for comments and criticisms.
