I've spent the last couple days reevaluating the direction that this conference has taken and have spoken with members, admins and manufactures.
One comment heard over and over again was the feeling that "the manufactures own this site". This was never my intent.
I have spoken with three of the manufactures that had admin rights to this forum and each agreed on their own accord to relinquish their admin privileges. Thus at the time of this post, there are no longer any manufactures as admins, only AS moderators of their own specific conference
Secondly, from the manufactures side I heard that they do not appreciate "signature files" containing defamatory comments about their products or "PM me to buy the best laser jammer".
I agree with their point of view too, so I ask that you please review and if needed "edit" your own signature files to be constructive in nature rather then be destructive.
Lets move on guys...
