URRG Banned????
#11
An unforced error by someone...seemingly corrected by someone higher up in the org chart. Hopefully not to be repeated.

To the admins, 

The allegations being made here need to be addressed publicly, not erased. Was there really an email sent to Mike Dutch telling him not to promote URRG? If so, did it then and does it now reflect actual Rocketry Center policy? If it does, is there a general site wide ban on promoting URRG? If it does not, why was the email sent?

It's really looking stinky, and will look stinkier, unless you make a public explanation. Deleting parts of posts with no explanation is entirely the wrong way to deal with this.

I'm 1,500 miles away from you, and know none of the individuals involved. So given that I don't have a dog in this hunt, please consider the advice in the spirit in which it's offered.

I'm certain you've created this forum to be an improvement from the rest of what's out there. If so, take the high road.

I'm going to go out in the open right here and support the deletion of a rather offensive attachment to this thread by RKeller which didn't serve the URRG cause very well at all. It was low-brow and low-class. Shame on you. If that's URRG's position on the matter, then RC can delete all further posts from them for all I care. Sheesh.

The intended reference, I'm assuming, was to point out that Bill liked the posts before being edited.... because he is the one who wrote them.   

Without knowing Who's actually in charge here, it's very hard to know what rules we're supposed to follow, and who is able to tell us those rules. 


So,  I'll ask again,  to whomever is behind the curtain:   We received word that promoting URRG is not allowed here.... from "RCenterAdmin" and Directly from Bill Clune. 

Someone else reported here  that this is a free forum.  


Which is it?  and Who are you so we know you're in charge.   I'm tired of trying to get permission from ghosts, and then being chastised for not going to a higher authority.


Who's driving this boat,  for real?

The picture was posted by you, RKeller. Don't pretend that you don't know why it was inappropriate and offensive.

You seem pretty angry. What's your connection to this forum?

I understand what you are saying, but that simply wasn't the point.
