I seem to recall Clay being removed due to Miles being sick of his finger pointing ( at Miles ) and as Miles is at the head of the ladder and ASC is his boat to float.....talking negatively to the guy that owns the boards isn't a good thing, kinda like spitting in the face of the guy that owns the airsoft field you play at.
Private forums are ran in a different way then public ones.
Misunderstandings are apart of the internet, and if one happens we often get it sorted out through PM's, however....when it's obvious that the person is just being a dink and continues their online posting "habits" they get booted. Easy enough. Treat others with the respect you wish to be treated with, reap what you soe.
