We gave you ample latitude to air your complaints. You received abundant feedback from the Sailnet membership, very little of it sympathetic to your predicament.
By your own admission, Hunter offered to repair your daysailer's hull, even though it was many years out-of-warranty and had been stored under questionable conditions. Rather than accept this offer, or pursuing the legal avenues available to you, you admit that you decided instead to attack Hunter in "the court of public opinion" (post #109 here
The Sailnet terms of service are very explicit on this topic:
5. This forum is not to be used to sell things to members OR settle personal disputes or attack vendors. This is a community. If you come here to use the community rather than be a part of it, expect to be banned.
You agreed to these terms when you joined Sailnet. It now appears your only reason for joining Sailnet was to pursue an agenda that violates this term of service.
We did not block access to your other thread. "[F]riends of Hunter Marine" did not influence us. We locked the thread to deny you further opportunity to advance your agenda here at Sailnet. We certainly are not going to host a second thread that allows you to pursue that agenda. So we will edit your initial post to this thread.
Please refrain from beating this dead horse here at Sailnet.
