Mschf’s (Martin) disappearence
14

I heard from Martin and he said he was not banned, that he closed his account of his own volition.

In a nutshell, he said he could not participate in a forum where he felt a moderator was watching his every word, having to be careful about everything he says and posts.

While he felt that adults arguing is not always admirable, it is the nature of this forum, as street photographers, to have some controversy. He feels that quarreling, even among friends, can be productive as things can get resolved and people get to understand one another.

He said that he would not have lasted long in a tepid, moderated environment anyway - so he chose to close his account before he was banned. He will continue to lurk, but he can no longer participate.

I, for one, am very sorry to see the loss of a much valued member of our community.
