I was informed of the following and wanted to pass the word on. Due to feeling unwelcome as of late, shrox will not be posting on the forum for an unspecified amount of time.

hhhmmm, I'm not sure what may have happened *offline*, but I sure didn't see anything in the forum that would lead Shrox to react in such a way.

Come on back guy :)

I haven't seen anything that would offend him. Shrox, you give great advice, come back!!

Shrox and the TRF Staff have had a difference of oppinion regarding his postings and some more recently that were pulled by myself and the other mods. That is his privelege and we wish him the best in his future endeavours.

From what I was told shrox thought that some of his posts were being unjustly deleted. I assume that is the main reason for him feeling unwelcome here.

Rocketboy...never assume anything unless you have both sides of the story. We will not dwell on it any further, but rather wish to move forward and continue providing a great forum for our members.

I thought Shrox was a great contributor. I do however trust the admins and mods to make the right decisions to keep TRF on the right track.

We never seem to get to tell our side of the story so here it goes.

The first thread pulled was a thread on the BATFE which was going down hill fast toward BATFE bashing and politics. That thread was pulled more for all the content and not just shrox's post. Shrox started the thread so maybe he felt more slighted.

The second thread pulled was on a member's legal battles over the legal use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. The mods mulled over this one for a couple of days and finally decided that this topic was a little too far "off" topic for TRF and that there were other (and better) avenues for this subject matter to be discussed.

The third thread was of questionable moral content given that some of our members are very young in age. You may say that the Internet is full of questionable content but the last thing I want is for some eight year old's parent seeing their kid surfing a porn site only to find that they followed the link from TRF.

As you can see all these threads fall outside the guidelines of TRF so they were pulled. Shrox is not being singled out in fact I rarely even notice who is posting the thread when evaluating... I look solely at the subject matter. If it fits it stays, if it doesn't fit it goes.

Now moving on... nothing to see here.

The third post was a link to a British bird watching society. If I misspelled the address I am sorry. But I am stunned at the mods reaction. Does anyone want the link to see for themselves? It is so family friendly.

The thing that bugged my the most was the fact that it was removed without checking it.

My question then is, did I misspell the link? Since it was pulled I can't check either. The address should have ended in .org

Is that the problem maybe? Still, you should check first!

He is back.

On another note, and I am not trying to start a fight, but maybe everyone should go back and read the rules of the forum. And while your at it the Title. If you cant find it it says "the rocketry forum" .... enough said.
