So let me begin....

And then you post what you do with "quotes", no external tags and then post those link at the bottom? I don't know what your game is but you're
walking a pretty thin line.
From your deleted post:

Are you freaking kidding me?? Because of 2 words!?!?!?!
No, they're not kidding you. Asking people to sign petitions, whether they're specifically yours or just as a general suggestion, is basically
solicitation. If I was a mod I would've removed it too. You want to solicit something, go to Facebook.
How bout you send me a message asking me to change it, and reminding me of the T&C? NO, you arbitrarily just delete it. Is this happening a
Unfortunately yes. While mods are concentrating on removing posts that are blatant violations of the T's and C's, something a 2nd grader should be
able to get a handle on, it takes time away that they could be spending on actually moderating threads so they don't get off topic, degenerate into
pissing matches, etc......
I've been here for 6 years and have never had anything deleted, 404'd, removed, or whatever, and I've said some pretty suspect things here. I'm still
waiting for my door to kicked down. I "get away with it" because they know me and they know I follow the rules, I contribute quality content and add
to the overall integrity of the board. ( Well, 8 days out of 10 at least). The same reason the staff gives me leeway is the same reason most posters
don't like me too well: I have a way of cutting through the BS. I deny ignorance and I'm not that overly concerned about whether I offend people or
not on certain topics. Like this one. Besides which, when I have a stick up my butt and cross paths with people, it drives content. It keeps
conversations going and while some people might want to argue and get off topic, I'm the steady Eddie that keeps it all real. Staff see's that. I
might not be the consummate professional all the time, but I tend to be good for business. Yes, mine is a hard hand to hold.
I'm the kind of poster they feel guilty for liking.
I was gone for awhile, and i come back and ATS is NOT the site i was so fond of a few years ago.
Why? Because you're not getting your way? Grow up. Of course the site has changed. Membership has grown and the world around us has changed. The staff
here recognizes that and acclimates itself to those changes. That's why it's more relevant now then ever before. Might I suggest you stand on the
other side of mirror and see things the way they do for a few hours, and you might see why they do what they do. They're running a business that
you're taking personally. That's the bottom line.
And then this thread..........an extremely fancy way to solicit via the old "Call to Arms" standby. Sometimes I wonder if you're on the right site
man. You just don't seem to get it.
