Re: Who has admin to erase things? This is bad!
What I did might not have been right, but, I wasn't sure how to deal with it. I was in the middle of a company sales meeting, checked the forum and saw that mess and then emails from Oliver asking for me to pull the thread. After reading it, I thought the post was slanderous and something that didn't belong on the forum. First time I've done it, but, realize in the five years I've moderated this forum and years of moderating UUnet groups I've always had the ability to do that - so it is not new. And I've never abused that power in the past.
What is new is that I felt the need to do something about the thread. IT is 10PM EST and I just returned from Nashville so as soon as I can sort through email and talk to the people involved I'll make a decision, with input, on what to do with the thread. If it wasn't tied up in the legal RF mess it might be a bit easier, but, unfortunately I can't change that. Tim, you might see it a bit different if you were in my shoes, but so be it.
