I joined the banjo hangout three weeks ago they have violiated my freedom of speech when they locked my topic. My topic disscussion in the non banjo related section was called I hate walmart. I wrote this topic based on the fact that Walmart has put several local businesses out of business. It was written as an econimocal discussion and not polotical. I however did mention the fact that once the NAFTA free trade agreement was put into place this really affected the american farmer. Two other people besides myself mentioned only NAFTA and the moderator said was to political and it was a locked topic. So I decided to delete my account with them. You dont have to have an account with them to see what people posted. | So I clicked on active topics somebody put BHO EXPERT. So I clicked on it. The post said where did Travis B go. It was an open discussion of people making bad comments about me the moderator who calls there self texas banjo said I closed my account over politics. Most of the other comments were calling me names. As to their business practices their as someone else reported some of the users actually being employees of Saga Music. The RK banjo which stands for recording king is mentioned on almost every single banjo recommendation.They are trying to persuade people to buy a few other banjos from Saga music. You might say what a concidence. They also have a guitar dobro mandolin dicussion pages which only Saga Music 8nstruments are recommended.
