I'm a bit reluctant to start this thread, but I believe it's necessary. I realize that this is a private forum owned by VTAC and that the rules are made and enforced by him and other staff members. IMO, however, sometimes it seems that regular FC members have little or no input about things on FC. At the risk of breaking a rule, let me provide an example. Someone started a thread concerning the new rule about no bumps allowed in the classifieds. As soon as some small disagreement with staff occurs, threads like these (giving opinions) are killed. Once again, I realize that Staff has every right to do this, but it just doesn't seem right to stifle member input about something that affects them. I've expressed these concerns before to staff members, but nothing was done. It is my belief that disagreement, questioning, and MEMBER INPUT are necessary to a healthy forum. I don't expect this thread to last long since I have a feeling it will quickly be locked. Get your opinions in fast!
