You know, I don't think I ever posted anything nasty there, but when they started banning people and culling political discussions last year I started the Underground Leica Forum. Photo.net threatened to call the FBI on me for that, since I was "stealing their business". You know, take away the kids, lock us out of the house, send me to SuperMax, register as a cyber-criminal, because a dozen people posted on a forum that lasted six months.
Of course, I do admit to starting threads like "which gun is most like a Leica?" - which was immensely popular but seemed to rankle the management. Why is it that the most popular threads (500 posts +) are the ones that get deleted? Isn't the idea to generate a lot of traffic and interest?
