Sorry but... Bullsh1t.

I don't agree with him or with many other people and have never had any problem or whatsoever you are implying.

The problem is not with everyone's opinions, the problem is how everyone share / defend them or argue / attack others.

The street is public too, but if you start shouting / saying some of the things that were running in the soapbox, you would end spending the night at a police station (and that having luck).

If you can't see that...

That said. I partially agree with Daniel's message answering you before me. CP has been, is and will always be a private site. It is very community oriented and tries to have nice sharing values / principles, but it is still a private site and runs a business behind it. And as every busines in the physical world, there is someone taking decissions and as that someone is a person, there will always be a certain influence or bias.

But in conclusion... I still find that Chris and all CP Staff do a damned good job at trying to run the site the most neutral and community oriented as possible.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
