Jaye, I think Corran Horn sumed it up perfectly. It really wasn't about the e-mail. I made that fairly clear in my farewell post that was deleted. If the thread were I said goodbye to my friends in there that are not members here or at GH turned in to a bunch of the newer members flaming me and others....why not just lock it as was done to coutnless other threads in the past??? The reason: it's the same reason why the e-mail, and the why the bannings threads were deleted. A lot of the older members became critical of the way Philip Wise is running the site. I may be wrong, but it's looking like he's got a real ego problem and it's coupled with TF.N and RS making him money, and this is the last year he's going to be able to make large sums of money with these sites. Ask a lot of the people who have been collecting what happened 20 years ago to this hobby when the prospects of new movies was gone.
I don't care what happens to RS anymore. I will not post there and I told Philip that I no longer want to be on the mailing list (banned) and I did not appreciate my farewell to my friends there being deleted after being a member of those boaards for 5 years. I know I'm not the end all-be all of this hobby and I do not expect a mas exodus of the RS forums because I'm not there anymore (but wow that would be cool eh?). I'm a fan, of the films and this hobby, and after contributing to those boards for as long as I had I think it's just wrong in how they're being run.
