This is a non-political response to a reasonable question.
I am a volunteer
moderator on SportPilotTalk. I started out here like most of you, a pilot who found this group and started participating. Perhaps too much, because (as an educator) I have s lot to say, and took advantage of the opportunity to expand my reach. Soon, I had written more posts than anybody else on the forums. Eventually, the site owner asked me to moderate, and I accepted. (And by now, I think I've written more posts than everybody
else on the forums, combined.)
SportPilotTalk is a business. It is not my business. I have no commercial affiliation with this site or its owner. I am not paid in any way, other than in satisfaction which I derive from seeing the LSA and Sport Pilot movement grow and thrive. I steer the conversation, try to educate, prod people gently, push participants to get threads back on topic, occasionally make off-topic posts myself, am glad when other members push me back onto runway centerline, sometimes have to lock a thread to put a stop to pointless arguments - but I do not censor, nor do I delete posts!
The person who deleted the posts up-thread signed his message ADMIN, not
"moderator." So, instead of asking "dear moderator... who are you?" you should have asked the same of "dear ADMIN." But since you didn't ask, and he didnt say, I'll tell you.
The owner of this site is a pilot named Gerald. He pays the bills, collects some ad revenue, and relies on me (a volunteer, not
an employee) to keep things running smoothly. Usually, it works. Occasionally, it doesn't. If things go off the rails, he may have to step in and intervene. That is his right. He may occasionally delete a post. That is his right. He may sometimes kick someone off the forum. That is his right. He may even suspend my moderator privileges. That is his right. But I do not censor.
I just play in Gerald's playground. Like the rest of you.
That's who I, your volunteer moderator, am. If you want to know who Gerald is, just ask him. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. Now, can we please
get back to discussing the OP's Sling 2 build?
