Why did a moderator remove my post about community builder?

Post by p4aul » Sat Aug 22, 2009 11:31 pm

I created a post asking about Community Builder theme?Plugin? I admit I wasn't complimentary about it but I wasn't obscene either. I understand it was supposed to be free, but when I tried to download from the official site I was told there would be a subscription fee and then I could download it. Does that sound like free to you? Anyway a moderator removed the post. Is that the way you treat people around here?

We don;'t allow what we call Wall of shame posts in the forum - You may want to familiarize yourself with the forum rules http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=65. I have no idea if that is what happened. However, you can download the Community Builder component for free. You simply have to register on their site. If you want their extensive documentation, they do charge a fee, however, the basic startup information is free. Please be sure that whatever you post in the forum is correct or the moderators will certainly moderate your posts.

OK you can remove this too! You wanna be in control Stay in control, but I don't stay where I'm not wanted or where you don't allow free expression. with that kinda attitude maybe you should move your site to Iran! Keep your forum and Joomla too! I'm outa here!

My my, we are a heated lot in here today.
Firstly, while your post fitted into the "whine and bitch" category I didn't see anything there that needed deletion but it must have been enough to tweak the Mod's Kill filter. That's fine, that's why he's a Mod and I'm just a member. This post is not about a Mod's decision but about your response.

For me, and I'm not a Mod, a sharp response guiding you on what passes for appropriate conduct along with a pointed reference to go back and read the site information properly should have been sufficient and instructive.

There isn't any need to take your bat and go home. Joomla is free, CB is free, the help here is free. All you have to do is be nice about it and show some respect. And once you build up your knowledge then you share it with other learners. That's how this Joomla works. Sharing information.

There is no need to think people are in charge like a a police state such as Iran. Not true, not even close. There is a real community here, though most of the orders are one way it is still a community, and you have the chance to calm down and join in. Take another look at the situation and see how much you can gain and learn from being an active member. Be glad to have you back with us if that is the way you want to do it.

If you do leave, don't go away as a Joomla Hater. We don't need that kind of problem. Just accept that there was a misunderstanding and write it off as that. There are other CMS programs out there. Some folks will tell you that their favourite CMS is better than Joomla. That's just personal opinions, nothing to worry about.
Cheers, Ian

Joomla is not the problem. the attitude of those that run the blog and enforce the regulations are. Maybe they should take a look at those "rules" and see that they don't allow for free expression. I have an opinion and should be free to express it. I felt like and still feel like that Community Builder is not free. If it was free then it should be downloadable from Sourceforge and cnet. By forcing someone to register,in order to download it, it isn't. it is not free. I did, in fact try to register but was unable to. It's this kind of "Me in Control" thinking that lead some people to bittorrents, and others to protest, as in Iran. I am not one of them, but I can see the lure.

If you'll give me a link where I can download Community Builder frelly, without having to register, I'll eat my words. That brings up another pet peave and that is these "Capcha" things. At there site it was so unreadable I was unable to register! >:(
