Re: Is it true that moderators are controlling what we say?

:idea: Graham :!: Can you spell "hyperbole"? Sure you can. (Borrowed from Mr. Roger's Neighboorhood). Not wanting to quell discussions about programs that have not been proven to be clones is a _far_ cry from promoting warez sites / links. Not even sure how one would get from point A (non-proven clo...

Re: Accounts to delete

:D Hi Uncle Steve. I believe in this. NOT resign because of 1 wayward Mod. Instead, I will continue to fight within CCC. and there's a "majority rule. 2 out of 3" 1 alone does not rule CCC???? Jeremy, Altho I will check out your new forum, giving up isn't the way to go. but the one thing i would NOT...

Re: Goodbye Talkchess

:idea: you know Graham, I don't believe It's about clones or whatever. My perception is It's about "control/power-tripping" .
