I have been a member of this Cakewalk for decades and have always found the forums to be a very friendly place.
Once in this time I have had a problem with someone and tried to take it up on PM for quite a while.. and in the end it got completely out of hand as being abusive etc.
It turned out the said person saw he was a problem and resigned. Good for him and have great appreciation of his stance.
I have built and run internet forums... some with over 25000 members... you are always going to get some misunderstandings.
Thats just how it is, along with communication problems in written word, beliefs, politics etc. etc.
We are guests in somebodies home (this case Bandlab) and we should show respect and abide by the rules that are given.
I personally dont buy the "free speech" thing when its a private forum. We signed up and we agreed to THEIR Terms and Conditions.
SO.. in plain English... suck it up or leave!
