First, don't think there is a radio because the other NMPs don't have
one and besides there is Internet Radio. Lobby your local favorite
station to start streaming.
Hector, There are no Free Speech issues. What do you think this is? The
High School Newspaper or maybe a radio talk show or a Blog?
I can tell you what it is. It is a Forum that is sponored by Slim
Devices/Logitech to which you signed up to AND agreed to follow and
abide by THEIR Rules. Let me say that again, in signing up, you agreed
to the rules. Roughly, rule one is they make the rules. Rule two is you
agree to abide by and follow the rules. All of which means they monitor
and edit what they feel they need to. I am glad they zap the SPAM the
second it hits the Forum. Most of the time when things get out of hand,
they just lock the Thread so that the fire ball does not get any larger
but it is still there for all to read no matter if it reflects poorly
or greatly on Squeezebox. I have never seen them to be heavy handed
(they have even unlocked some locked treads upon further reflection).
Protecting future products that press releases have not gone out on yet
is not heavy handed or sensorship. If anything it is a company
protecting itself so it WILL be around in the future to sponsor this
Forum and provide the level of service we all have come to expect.
If you think this is a free speech issue, go over to Apple and read the
long list of rules for their Forum. All posts that shine a dim or bad
light on Apple WILL be deleted. If you make a joke or sarcastic remark
about an Apple product or another Forum Member it will be deleted,
third offence, you will be deleted.
This Logitech/Slim Devices Forum is about as easy going and as Free
Speech as it gets to a limit that allows things to never get to out of
hand. There are some posts over on the Stereophile Forum that will make
your brain bleed. Again this is a Forum and not a Blog, there are rules
and Free Speech only to a point. George Carlin (if he were still alive)
could not post his famous 7 words on this Forum because bad manors and
inappropriate words at not allowed by the rules. So it follows if one
can't use those words then total Free Speech is really not in play.
Nuff said and typed.
