Johnson did it!

Why is E-Zone so anxious to doge questions?

Why is it that as soon as someone questions the financial ties between the owners operators of this site and Hobby Lobby, they close the thread with a statment that seem very much like "These are not the droids you are looking for."? Do they think that we are all weak minded fools? How about some accounting information? How much of the costs to run your site are covered by Hobby Lobby's sponsorship? How much does this tie you to them? How far are you willing to go to protect your relationship? Does this compromise the integrity of your site?

Wonko the Sane has a grand total of two posts, neither of which is about airplanes. Bet it's a coincidence that he showed up at the same time that Sal was banned for using multiple identities to run down competing businesses.

If you have a problem with the way the site is run, leave. It's a private area. It has rules of conduct. When you violate those rules, you don't get to whine about being censured (if you're not sure how that differs from CENSORED, look it up before you reply).

Headless, the tin-foil hat (BTW, that dates you. Young folks call it aluminum foil) isn't enough with a conspiracy so large. You'll also need a Maglight and a current copy of Backyard Buyer magazine.

but..but... they told me the tinfoil would keep the hypnosis away!!
Going to have to move up to a wire mesh.

Seems strange to me when i see people cowering being anonymity attacking those who are right out in the open doing something positive for the hobby. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Wonko, as a new member with only two posts behind you and no contributions other than your negative insinuations against the owners and moderators of this service. you just don't have a lot of credibility here. RCGroups is a community and, just like the new neighbor that wants to complain about the mayor's office and police department the day after moving into town, most of the locals are going to roll their eyes at you.

If you really believe what you are saying and you want to do something about it, you've got to establish yourself in the community and spend some time helping your fellow modelers before you try to convince everyone that there is a nefarious plot to damage the businesses of those that don't sponsor the site. Right now, most people just won't take you seriously.

If the popcorn popper is of the Jiffy-Pop variety, then it may afford some protection. A shower cap may be necessary, however, to keep the oil and butter out of your hair. If you don't have a shower cap (and who does, really), then wrap your head in plastic wrap. The safest thing to do would be to test fit the above, take a photo, and post it here. That way I can tell if it is likely to work or not. If it does not appear that it will work, PM me your credit card number, expiration date, name on the card, etc, and I will send you a device that will work. No need to thank me.

Well, the number of posts anybody has made here on the board doesn't have anything to do with it...
At least it shouldn't !

Wonko asked a , IMHO, legitimate question...
Is there a connection between HL and E-Zone ? I don't know...
I wouldn't think so, since HL has it's share of negative comments, and you don't see any moderators erasing those posts.

@ Wonko : Why do you worry so much about this ? As ong as the E-zone runs the way it does now, who cares if Hobby Lobby owns it ?

Only another "Vendor" would care, right Mr. Wonko.
