I don't care about what you think about my attitude, Jazzy.

But I am fed up of people telling what is right and what is wrong about MSX. I am absolutely fed up of prophets and prophecies about MSX, MSX Revival, MSX Association, Nishi and what-so-ever.

Everyone is free to choose his way: I only point in a different direction. Here, free-opinions are usually punished. That has got a name, and quite different from democracy.

.. you'll get a ban if you're using offensive language and mess-around in a way that's generally annoying to other users.. and that's normal.

Exactly, amusing as the flamewars sometimes are, generally they are very annoying. If there is no moderation they will probably be endless. There are (hopefully were) days the only activity on the MRC were flames, that's a very bad thing and I am glad for the moderation that halts the flaming.

But what's your aim? You must have one as you're taking the effort to open a topic about it.

Take care and don't take it personal as language barriers (even it's your native language) are a major problem in non-personal media like the internet.

The problem with the flames is complicated because MRC is a so populair forum, with so many visitors ... and not all visitors have a good/very good/excellent MSX experience ... Newbies for example look for infos and positive attitude, so especially for them flames are annoying and without meaning.

But generally, if you come to a battle on MRC, the source is often in misunderstandings and/or exaggerate reactions. To solve the problem between the concerned people, MRC is indeed not the good solution, it's better to use mailing lists like comp.sys.msx or to use private e-mails.

Moderation is not an easy work on a so great forum as MRC ... and in some cases, you can get the feeling that different opinions from the MRC line are not really accepted. MRC is excellent for the news, but more tolerance in the discussions is really necessary.

Everyone is welcome there.
Then I wonder why I get 403 Forbidden errors when I try to visit that page... Using a proxy works fine!

Pitpan: a soul-searching question: Should MRC delete your account now and pretend you've never been here? Personally, I don't get your point at all. Now I'm not the one to point out the facts about which forum is better (member/post-wise) and such, cos those have been detailed in the past already. I think you contributed a lot to the MSX Revival with your MSXdev'0x compos. What makes you do such a step? MRC isn't AT ALL about on-the-fly moderation, or, like you call it, 'censorship'. If you feel personally insulted, you can always contact MRC by e-mail to sort things out. Maybe that might be an idea?

If i except his MSXdev, honestly, i never saw pitpan posting any positive or constructive reaction... He's prolly one of the worst guys around here in term of communication imo (well not realy just imo).
Still i am not sure it would be wise to join this wannabe msxposse forum filled with average coders, composers and various contributors who'd rather rant about the MSX scene than facing the reality of their respective poor skills which will never be able to catch any satisfying audience... O_o
