Come on guys! It's their forum to run as they see fit.

The mods are way too heavy handed and bias over there.

I disagree. Forums should be a place for people to freely voice their opinions (either pro or con) on any subject discussed there. If someone claims they found lost Civil War gold, then show me the money! If you don't, then posters should be allowed to question the authenticity of that claim.

Censoring posts because they have the nerve to question an obviously bogus claim is ridiculous. As they say, talk is cheap and actions speak for themselves. You found treasure? Fantastic, then let's see it! Seems simple enough to me.

As has been stated, we will not discuss issues that happened on other forums.

FreeBirdTim, I look forward to your posts here at FMDF!

This is not true.. this forum is privately owned and we deem what is acceptable and what is not and we expect our members to follow the rules of the forum.

We allowed the mention of what happened on another forum but as Ron has said its over now and time to move onto a new topic.

We have our limits and it has been reached on this subject.. The discussion is finished about that other forum.


Feel free to start another thread about that gold story.. its time to move on how other forums moderate their forums.

Oh well, life goes on. I'll keep posting videos every once in awhile and show off some of my better finds here on a semi-regular basis. That should appease my need to brag about my treasure hunting finds! LOL!
Welcome! Hey I want to brag to, but have to find something to brag about. Still trying and not giving up.
