No mention of the original poster being allowed to post after any amount of time he likes....you have made that bit up. They are davids rules..we just enforce them. Is it really that hard to respect his wishes?
yes but as with all things you can have a bit of leniancy when applying those rules and take into account each situation as it arrises and apply a bit of common sense to the situation
think what was the purpose of that rule its only to stop loads of old threads being revived by new members however in this case JO3 was simply reviving the thread to give us an update which IMO wasnt causing any harm to the forum so in this case the thread should have been left as it was the topic was fine and there was no sign of a flame war coming on as i saw it
if it had been a spammer reviing a thread simply to say oh yer i hate it when that happens or something i would have been happy for it to be closed
i find it funny how some mods are quite happy to ignore rules when it suits them such as the case of some mods and using profanity around the forum however as soon as a member questions a decision that is made its Davids rules and you guys are just following them kinda reminds me of the hypocracy of the brookfield days all over again just on a less serious basis
