Yep lots of left wing moderation, but who cares, it's not life or death, its a rc forum. I really don't understand why they get all upset if someone tells the truth about hobbykrude either, but that just goes back to the left wing moderation.
I agree somewhat but I don't think "who you know" has anything to do with it. I don't know any of the mods and never will. I don't know Jim nor do I know a single person at RCG. What I do know is that I have never gotten a point (may one day I will but I will earn it when I do) and I practice personal responsibility starting with reading and understanding the rules. This ain't rocket science .

An oh yea, you can post about Hobbyking if you have an issue with them if you simply follow the rules while doing it. I've seen where people get points talking about vendors (not just Hobby King) and then claim it is because the vendor is a sponsor when in reality they broke a rule. Just follow the rules and you will be fine at RCG .. and most places in the world for that matter.

You are right though, this is a hobby site so it is amazing how some make such a big deal out of things.

Deerfreak, can you give an actual example of where the mods "get all upset if someone tells the truth" about HK?

I see plenty of negative and positive about vendors, even join in sometimes.
But I've never been warned for it.

The psycho site logic would go:

HK owns RCG
Anthony Hand is an aussie
You are an aussie

Therefore you are immune.

And don't forget that Elvis is still alive, 911 was an insider job, Santa Clause is real, and everyone gets abducted by space critters so they can perform experiments on their mother ship.

Yep, it really is kind of funny what some people can convince others and at times themselves is true.

Santa is real, unfortunately because he gives out gifts he is obviously a shill and a paid rep for all the companys that sold Christmas gifts over the years. he apparently gets paid by the coal companies as well. This is not my opinion but I did read it on the internet when I googled "the truth about Santa". Must be fact..... shrugs.

It's the case for a few of the forums, not just this one.
Some can't tell the difference between airing a genuine issue they've had in order to get some advice, and feeling that they have to endlessly deride a company or person because of a perceived slight.

I can answer the question of why they still participate if they hate it... They love to hate it.

Its the chimney's...... he got stuck a few times and lost weight, and when he slides down it rubs the whiskers off, then the soot makes him all back....
