I had a similar experience on the BGG forum. A couple of years ago, I was deep into learning the BGG system. I purchased the BGG training tapes, a dozen BGG grips, and a complete set of BGG irons. A couple of months after these purchases, I made a statement on the forum about the difficultly I was having installing the BGG grips on my woods. Tom came unglued and threw me off his forum. As a result, I dumped the training tapes, gave the new set of irons to a local charity, and went back to my old CG swing. I never could understand why Tom was so upset over my comments. Anyway, he lost a customer and BGG student. I'm not surprised his forum is now shutdown.
