Kain this is an electrical forum.

I did not see you post but I know it did not have to do with electrical issues.

There are plenty of places on the Internet where you can say whatever you want....this is not one of them.

Don't try to make it sound like a crime that the moderators are keeping things on track here.

This forum is not provided by the government, it is a public service provided by private individuals, the moderators have the right to control content on the forum in any way they please, and seeing as this is an electrical forum NOT a political I believe that they're just doing what they should and keeping the forum on-topic, there are a thousand political discussion forums out there, you can voice your opinion on one of those, too many forums go to pot because of offensive, stupid, uncontrolled content, and I for one am glad the mods at ECN are not allowing that to happen, unless you'd like to be called a "******* **** ****" every time you post a question

I removed your post because it was just exactly what the Webmaster warned against doing.
Your post had nothing to do with the original question anyway.

We're not "Thought Police".....THINK whatever you want,

This is a community, and just like any other community, there are rules and someone has to enforce them.

"this is an electrical forum"

Sooooo true. Politics are one of those things we just can't get into here, without the fabric of the universe gone frayed.

Truthfully, we can't even get into "Electrical Politics" without things getting bad..... Union/non-Union, Licensing Laws.

Even Ground pin "Up vs. Down" gets silly. [Linked Image]

We try to play nice, is what it comes down to........

Ctardi, where it stands right now, it is simply for explanatory reasons.

It is often forgot that this is not our form as we do not fund it.
The owners have invited us to post here and, as such, we are their guests as you woulld have "guests" in your home.
If there are those who have a problem with that it is their option to either go somewhere else or start their own forum which they can own and run as their choose.
This is not an issue of "free speech."

My "post" had nothing to do with politics or union vs. non-union.It was about business and business practices by some in the construction industry and these practices will affect all tradesmen, just not electricians.My mistake was assuming that business questions and comments were within the scope of this forum, but you know what they say about assuming.
