I am starting this thread because I feel that Axel has bullied and intimidated myself and other posters who disagree with the sense of control and limits of discussion he has placed on many posters with whom there is disagreement. I am a longtime member and poster. I have not engaged in name calling. I would point out the rationale for locking the DD thread , though I disagree with, I could understand how mods could see it that way. Unfortunately mods don't weigh the interests of the many to the headaches of the few. Stifling and limiting debate is not the way to go imo . Mods can maintain it is not but I strongly disagree . To me this site has become a dictatorship. As someone who has travelled in countries with dictators the fear of its citizens is not unwarranted. Re intolerance when one fails to consider an alternative view point and makes decisions that limit the expression of its membership they are in essence intolerant of their members
This will probably be my last post. I find the tone and attitude of some mods dismissive and condescending . Sometimes people claim to be openinded and tolerate yet fail to truly consider the other side of things.
I fully expect this thread to be locked or deleted and that will to me , reaffirm to me that my concerns are valid.
