I\'ve noticed this too. Whats up with that? The notion of censoring out urls for no apparent reason is insulting to NemeSys users/customers and it is disturbing to think that censorship like this goes on in a \'public forum\' endorsed by a world class corporation like NemeSys. It\'s probably not the fault of NemeSys at all, but it is still rather frustrating, whatever the case, especially if it\'s going to block me or anyone else for that matter from learning about music etc etc through secondary sites.
This is an official site for NemeSys customers is it not? Or is it just another excuse to plug an on-line store with traffic graciously provided solely by NemeSys? Anyway whatever is going on is complete crap. I\'ll end this post here because I\'ll be physically sick if the site moderators turn this into another useless \'more on strings\' flame war.
Sensoring has started since the end of the old forum when east-west was banned from this forum. Since the new forum things have only gotten worse (the www.***.com). I wouldn\'t take things on this forum as an honest opion of GS users. After all this is not a Nemesys site but Northern sound service who happen to be a commercial company. There nothing against this, only the fact that NSS does not inform us of their policy.

The policy seems inconsistent and very subjectively applied. If you\'ve noticed, EmulatorFour is no longer posting on this board - because his IP has been banned.
He\'s posted a statement elsewhere off this site regarding this (ie. check that infamous censored site) but personally I think he may have been overly critical of some of this Forum\'s censorship policies and made himself persona non grata.
I submit that if posts can go missing, they can also be edited. I\'m not familiar with the capabilities of Ultraboard, but there\'s a smell in the air and it stinks.
Signing off from Northern Sounds,
With regards to cencorship, we at Northern Sounds have never edited nor will ever edit a user\'s post. In fact, if anyone edits a post it is clearly indicated at the bottom of the post. You merely have to read previous posts to see that no post has ever been changed by us, including negative comments towards us. With regards to the barring of users and urls, we take this matter very seriously; therfore, we do not on a whim decide to bar someone. As moderators of this forum, Papa and myself have to maintain structure and order. We cannot align ourselves with sites that have questionable practicies nor individuals who consistantly disregard the rules of this forum. We do not use this forum to debase other companies or individuals, nor do we condone others using the forum for this purpose. There is no great \"conspiracy theory\", we have lives and barely have time to maintain this site, much less devise and execute diabolical schemes. Let\'s put this to rest once and for all and use the GigaSampler User\'s Forum for what it is intended, the discussion of topics relevant to GigaSampler.
