You're right. I didn't want to identify you by name in the post as it seems some like to go immediately to personal attacks on mods and other posters. No sense getting you involved and subjecting you to the commentary.
It is interesting to see all the advice we get on how to run the site, mostly by purveyors of straps and others looking to sell so it was no surprise that my comment generated such a childish response by one former member of the site in particular and others who have an interest in selling to our audience. But that has been handled and hopefully everyone can move on now.
Seems we have to go through this periodically, but people who have not been here so long have no experience with how bad it can get. A few years ago, Gary proposed and implemented a strap review subfora. Unfortunately it died of starvation after a few months. Seems people are only happy if they make the public forum all about straps.
Live and learn ... thanks again, I appreciate you standing up.
