I too have noticed the protection nazi's coming down on people for bagging on companies like Horizon!
What good is a public forum if you can't voice your opinions
However, I have experienced fairness from Jim Graham.
I hope I don't pickup a point for posting here .

You can get 10 points before anything happens and they roll off after 90 days, so wear them like a badge of honor for speaking your mind from time-to-time!

The internet is in the business of making money. Everything we say & do & every Google search result is intended to make money. You won't find many rcgroups or Google search results which don't support the sponsors of the sites. You have a lot people who have bought the products advertized & don't like their decisions criticized.

Yes, perhaps you are correct that some "people" get offended (take it personal) when you provide first hand knowledge of a particular product that did not performed per the advertised claims or comparitive cross-evaluations that many here provide.

However, I feel that the majority is the Sponsors and those in the business of supporting the large industrial complexes at China who by the way are the makers of almost all ARF's, RTF's etc...etc...and not necessarily the people that purchases a product solely because they guided themselves on the information from the box or advertisement.

I was banned for 5 days ("to review the rules of the site..."): let's say thanks to Xtreme Power Systems, LittleScreamers, fanboys, lamers & others.

Yes, I can imagine which of the various shills and bough and paid for reviewers did not care for your comments.

Anyhow - welcome aboard.

Some people seem to get in to it with others more than me I guess. I have my own opinions and generally speak my mind, but I haven't been pushed around by anyone. Someone did register a complaint on me once, but it went nowhere. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but some seem to draw it's attention more than others.

Sort of an admission - probably as close as you will get anyway. They are still selling it, and as far as I know, they have not made any changes.
