Well, I think I can weigh in on this issue now. Regarding the Spam, I'm not too upset about that. What makes me dissappoint is the rude behavior by the RS staff. It's one thing to stand by your "Policy," but another to be totally unsympathetic and unappologetic. I mean, what's up with, "if you don't like it tough!?" I understand that it's part of a deal that the administation has made, and it is business, but then the forum members must be treated like customers and not told to go elsewhere. I was also dumfounded that KBZ had to explain his totally legitamate case several times and still not have it addressed. That's just goes to show you that no one takes the time to actually read posts.
If they would have handled it better, i'm sure a lot of people from this site would not have attacked RS as openly as they did. But given the administraions reaction, I don't blame anyone. Then, for the administration to just ignore the critisizm is just ignorant. Alot of people like Jessie James thoughtfully and articulately voiced their frustration and concerns. If I would have gotten such a well written post from a long time member, I would have given it serious concideration. Not "If you don't like it - tough!, oh, by the way here's the door." Dissapointing.
