    Politics on RFF is like digital on APUG, and just as off topic, if not more so.

    Roger Hicks says that everything is politics. He's my favorite RFF mentor.

    I wonder if Roger includes a link to his website in his posts there?

    In the past I enjoyed Roger's posts too.

    Its a helpful site, unfortunately the `regulars' are a very thin skinned bunch.Like the new white screen though.

    It happens on APUG too. Try starting a thread on digital cameras and see what happens.

    Well you know how those RFF guys are always going on about how they have to cover the red dot and the name Leica on their cameras. Well now they have covered up the entire website with a white sheet. Just so no one will steal it ya know

    Everyone has been banned and all their posts deleted. It all started with a thread titled "M9-P or M2 with Goggled 35 Summaron?"...

    RFF: I've had posts deleted with no explanation. Don't discuss a)America b) Leica c)SLR's ;D and you're in safe territory IMO. The people there are more than helpful on film, camera knowledge, etc, etc tho
    Come on Jan, you know people discuss these topics all the time on RFF. It is pretty rare that threads or posts get deleted, but it does happen - I think few are because of disagreement about Leicas and SLRs. Most are probably political threads where there tends to be a lot of USA bashing; that sometimes draws America defenders and it goes downhill from there. I am sure Canada/France/China/Norway bashing posts would draw a like response.

    Also, the only OWS posts I saw deleted were ones that degraded into fairly nasty political debates or overt recruiting for the movement. Photos of OWS were not deleted for being there, AFAIK. (Note that I don't visit the site all that often, so I'm sure I miss a lot of "excitement".) Any posts I had deleted came with no explanation, but those modified did have a reason - even if it was irrational!

    RFF has a lot of friendly members with a tons of knowledge they are willing to share (like you of course, Jan!), but some topics get out of hand.
