Being a member of several forums, I understand the need for moderation. I come to this form for one reason: to meet and converse with like minded people. Recently I posted a message seeing if anyone wanted to attend a Halloween party with me. Under the new rules, my therad would have probably been locked. I dont think that personal ad type of threads were getting out of hand here, they were rarely posted. Meeting people that are into the things we are all into is hard enough, and this forum is just one thing that can potentially help us all meet someone that we are compatible with. Another thread I made about putting on a webcam show for anyone intrested would probably have been locked too. If it had, the three FS posters I have put shows on for, wouldnt have been able to sit back and enjoy themselfs on those occasions. And isnt that much worse than a few harmless posts? So I know my words dont carry much weight on this subject, but I just found it disheartning to see this forum take a turn down a road i have seen many others go. I hope it doesnt suffer the same fate those did. Just my two cents.
