I do not believe I have ever heard or seen this happen here. I personally talk about other groups, forums, and pages from time to time. If you feel like you have been moderated in some manner for mentioning other resources, please let an admin know.

We just don't do that here. In fact, it was censorship and post deletes (on another forum) that sparked the creation of this forum. All of the admins take this very seriously.

That said, and generally speaking, the web and social media platforms are changing and coming under increasing scrutiny. For example, think of reports in the news of foreign entities using social media platforms to attempt to influence our political elections. (just one of the reasons we don't talk politics here)

What darned few "rules" that we DO have are not there to restrict us. To the contrary, they are there to help keep us free. Something to think about.

Happy New Year to all! Thanks to you folks, Rpod Owners is entering it's 10th year! To celebrate, I think we should waive everyone's membership dues for all of 2019!

I certainly have never seen it on this forum. In fact we just had a post with members recommended other sources of info. Evidently not welcome on the "other" forum:) So they deleted my post and sent me a nicely worded warning.

I'm going to go (not too far) out on a limb and predict that we will see an increasing amount of this sort of thing (again, generally speaking). There are "calls" for some degree of accountability regarding social media activity.

Though unrelated and as an example, locally, we had an explosion at a high school and there were those who quickly posted stuff to the social medias that was not at all correct. This sort of thing causes panic, distress.....problems. Who should be accountable for this? (the incident was not evil but instead, a natural gas leak).

I'm sorry it happened to you, as I am certain your intentions were 100% good. I think you have the right attitude. It is their sandbox and if you want to play there, you play by their rules. I don't envy the moderators of the larger media sites.

Just as a note... THIS forum exists because the owner of the Nation forum was very heavy handed moderation and rules wise, specifically concerning the discussion of other dealers or forums. It was an ugly time when the forum split..

Ah. I see. They are afraid you're using their forum to "mine" for new users for some other forum. Thereby depriving them of ad or click revenue.

I got booted from pod fb  site because i said what i thought about my pod. i mostly say good things about it, but there are those few things that really need to be mentioned like the stupid dump pipe hanger etc.. I found them to be controlling, and either you submit or your out.
