Topic: To Moderators : Forum Censorship (Read 3685 times) previous topic - next topic


Why was my post message no. 1272313611 not posted? I only mentioned another development platform which happened to not be Arduino, the point that I was trying to get across was that the other platforms shields would be compatible with Arduino and vise versa


Considering the mods on here are extremely laid back (it can take them a couple of days to delete spam) and I've never seen any evidence of censorship in my time here, I can't see it being a mod issue.  More likely a forum glitch (pretty common). I often mention other development platforms.  

Here we go : I love Pic, Arduino sux.......


Hi Pluggy, well maybe it is a glitch, the message is there if you search for amicus, just doesn't show in my log or on forum, oh well

It was.  I read it.

You posted to the News forum.  In my opinion, this was not the appropriate place.  Bar Sport would have been a better choice.

My speculation is that your message was removed because it doesn't belong in News.

I suggest reposting to Bar Sport.


Must have had a hard day ;) , This one which I consider borderline spam started in News and was moved rather than deleted :  http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1271760948


I love Pic, Arduino sux

Got a hackaday account by any chance ?.  Although they are usually calling for Arduino trolls blood on there.  ;)


I know!

Apparently Arduino is the new thing to hate over there.  Oh, and instructables.

I need to keep up with the times :).


Now you know how SF feels on here....


SF?  Is that SparkFun?  I love those guys!


Now you know how SF feels on here....

Please don't speak for others.
I for one don't hate them. Yes, i was lucky at free-day.



So, how often does anyone associated with Sparkfun post anything useful on this forum?

That's a poor assessment, I think.  How many people here do you think buy from them?  Anyone who has purchased one of their products is, be definition, "associated" with them.  This is indirectly, of course, but the fact remains.  I think maybe what you're saying is, "How often does someone FROM SF post here?"  The answer to that question is, probably fairly rarely compared to the total postings per day.

If you're harboring ill will towards them because you didn't get anything on Free Day well, neither did I.  I don't feel some sort of entitlement because they were giving away something free, thus, I don't feel cheated.  I think there are a lot of people who do (did) feel cheated.  Yes, I was disappointed, but I got over it.  If that's your beef, I think it's a poor excuse.  If you've been wronged by them in some professional sort of way, you would have a legitimate complaint.

By "associated", I meant employed, affiliated, or connected in a financial sense beyond being a customer of.

It isn't just about the Free Day fiasco.

The only time any one from Sparkfun comes to the forum it is to sell something. They never respond to questions that people have using the products they bought from Sparkfun.

We are here.  It has taken some time to get 'here' though, and we apologize.  Our company is growing, and with it our support departments.  

We do wish to take a more active presence in forums, but limited personnel and other priorities have made this quite difficult.  But we are here and listening and will try to do what we can!
