I appreciate your opinion and your statement, "without posters it's just a blank page with some advertising". For a little over eight years, I've attempted to gently direct these message boards and their content. Today, these message boards are the most popular Civil War discussion sites on the internet with almost 400,000 postings. I guess you have to decide if I've done an acceptable job or not. I guess you have to decide if my past decisions have been right or wrong.
If you are resentful of my "iron fist" or the promotion of books from our contributing authors or the services we offer through this site, then may I suggest the logical?
My posting could have come as no surprise to our regulars, of which, I consider you one. If you want to talk current politics, do it some where else.
