That is rediculous.
Either you completely missed the message "This is a CONSPIRATORIAL BOARD, not a Masonic Lodge or you on purpose misunderstood the podcast and countless moderator efforts.

The funniest part is that the ATS top dogs would be the first fellows to step up and defend a Mason who was being abused or treated unfairly here. They are clearly just trying to moderate a tone without allowing any group to grab the microphone.

I whole heartedly agree that personal attacks have no place on this board. They add nothing to any discussion.
While it does appear from reading as many of the threads as I have been able to so far, that masons work in a co-ordinated manor I do not see how it would be possible. While I happily admit my masonic membership, I feel that the way some of the masonic members post is not in anyones best interests. I do feel that being able to offer a masonic responce to a anti-masonic thread would be a positive thing.
When there is information posted from one side only it ceases to be a discussion.
I feel that banning an entire "group" for the actions of a few would be detrimental to the entire community. Of course my opinion should be suspect as I am part of this "group". Since TC posted the change I and many masons on this board have tried to follow his directive, not only because he is andministrator but because it is the correct position and should be followed.
I sincerely hope to continue to read these threads, not only in ATS SS forum but others too, but occassionly be able to post when I am able to contribute to the discussion at hand.

That may be under-estimating you, but it's based on the fact that the few professed masons I've met in life looked like they just got through divorcing their sisters.
...I have to say that if you intended some kind of "representation" for your apparently beloved order, you just flunked with honors!
Way to represent.

What's up with this? Is this a "yay the masons are gone, let's hurl insults" party? Pardon me if I don't join in. I don't know much about masons, but can't imagine what any of them have done to deserve this.
