Re: Be a bit more openminded ?

I feel the need to repeat myself. I completely fail to understand those who join a very specialized group, and then proceed almost from the start to try to get the established group to change to accommodate their preferences, and then continue to do so absent any encouragement, and then to complain about it.

While it is true that taking a disrespectful and belligerent tone makes matters worse, being respectful doesn't alter the behavior that many find offensive.

No group needs that, and I back Kevin's actions completely.

As I read Neil's latest post, he requests that his ability to post messages or files to the Group be suspended rather than voluntarily moving on.  So, I have obliged him and have done so.

You apparently read Neil's post very differently that did I. He wasn't being disrespectful. He wasn't being disruptive. He was rationally discussing a topic related to this group.

Suspending someone for rationally expressing an on-topic opinion is a great way to stifle the discussion and kill the group. It's now clear that members here need to be fearful of angering the moderators every time they post. If this is the way this group is going to be run, I won't be staying much longer.
