    What is this? China? North Korea?

    The amount of moderation there is on these forums is getting excessive.

    I respectfully disagree. It could be a lot worse. Plus it all stems from people like you posting in the wrong place. This should not be in this forum.

    Comparing a privately owned forum to China or North Korea seems strange to me.

    You all don't know anything about how things are in China or in North Korea, except what you read on this forum : apparently... Stay clueless, makes us all stronger...

    As long as you don't act like a complete dork and post things in an appropriate forum you will not run into a moderator mucking with your posts.

    This thread would have likely been much more appropriate here:
    http://forums.precentral.net/treocen...recentral-net/
    or
    http://forums.precentral.net/off-topic/

    Were you trying to incur the moderator purge by posting an anti-mod thread? If so, you might just get it. Moved, and might be deleted.

    The rules of this site are simply the rules of adulthood. Treat others as you would like to be treated; don't flame on others (or their threads); use the more advanced parts of the English language, etc.

    I sure miss a lot of the old timers from the 650 days. WebOS has ushered with it a different calibre of people on these fora than from the Palm OS days.

    Thanks for the respect, but I intended to post his in the wrong place. Why do people always say "It could be a lot worse." It also could be a lot better.

    Thanks for proving my point. Has this post been deleted yet?

    Thanks for all the PMs, but i wish you would post them here in the private, I mean public forum.

    Thanks for moving the thread, but where is a moderator when you need one? I mean all these people ganging up on one person! how brutal! I hope they get shunned from this private community of saints.

    Wow. Thanks for violating the forum rules then. Glad to see you don't like to follow the rules. I wonder how many times deliberately violating the rules until someone is banned ...

    I guess since being better and worse is all a matter of opinion, there is no point to debate it. Personally, I feel it is not that bad and there are worse things that moderators could do than delete a thread (probably deleted for a valid reason but that is not the point) and I look at it on the bright side. Plus, since it is a free site run by volunteers, I feel like they don't "owe" me anything. They can delete as many posts of mine as they want without any reason in my mind. It is not my right to use this site, it is a privilege.

    Who said anything about the interweb? This is not a site without rules. They can deny your access to it if they didn't like the color of your shoes and you would have no recourse. Your comparison fails because free speech does not apply here. That's just how it is on forums. Don't take it personal.

    Yes I could have posting in the correct forum, but, since they have like 23243 forums here, no one really knows which one won't get you banned.

    Yes, i have a choice not to use this forum, but i can also question the people that love having the power to put people in their place. I mean come on, this isn't socialistcentral.net... Maybe it is.

    I've noticed a lot more disrespectful profane people lately. And they're all new. I'm guessing that has a lot to do with all the moderation.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    So do moderators have rules? Who is moderating the moderators? super mods? Who made the rules? Can you function without rules? Are you one of those people that can't function in society?

    Um...what are you talking about? Socialist what?

    First of all I never stated that I like or appreciate over-moderated forums. Scan the thread and check. I am simply pointing out the facts. What don't you get? If you let someone in your house and you don't like what they say you can ask them to leave. That's how things work in forums as well. You have a choice to either continue visiting the forum or not. If the rules are too oppressive you have a choice. There are other forums I don't visit because of things like that.

    I function just fine in society. Believe me...I am not arguing here just stating the facts.

    Out of context........what I said was...............

    I think those who work at a Sprint store should do what ever they can for the customer seeing they are paying your wages.

    BUT........on the other hand, have you ever waited to speak to a rep on a busy day observing the people they deal with for 8 hours before they get to you? I have and have to say that I might of asked one or two to leave the property. If you are trying to provide customer service and the customer is being disruptive it is counter productive to everyone in that space.

    It's a two way street , it begins with training , you gain experience you help the customer who had a choice of carrier.

    If your lazy or on some type of tech geek power trip , imagine leaving for the day getting on your bicycle and having the big black woman who was screaming at you at 2pm beat you down as you try to leave.

    Never hurts to say please and thank you or even sorry I tried when you don't have to.
