Default why was Polonaise's account disabled ???

This is a real shame, TE managers have absolutely no respect for the members, for their work, and for freedom of expression. They simply don't care about the members (remember the technical chaos a few months ago, with no explanation for weeks?).

This is pure censorship, and pure stupidity

I hope to see Polonaise's works in other websites with a more tolerant attitude towards their members.

This post is my last and final contribution to TE.


I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! THEY JUST LOCKED THE OTHER THREAD!!

the second one is not locked...
And in the locked one is this message:

Moderator note - it's only a 7-day ban for Polonaise and ScottHale not permanent ban. They are baiting and fighting publicly and it's affecting the tone of the site

may be he got angry with the ban and deleted them all himself... no surprise he never shows up again out here... and he'd be 100% right to do it... but then i guess that's what the moderators want, so he SHOULD be back...

SHAME ON TE...

Grazyna, George is out "only" for one week, so better to think again...

But I find the climate here really deplorable these last times !

Anyway : thanks to the moderator to have finally informed us.

Had they done it before, it would have avoided all these tremors. TE is in a bad shape IMO, really a shaky place and I feel personally very unstelled about it.

No regrets about Scott's ban : he did not make any positive contribution, just delations and permanent aggressions without showing any photos - very unhelpful and even distressing.

A 1 week ban is better than a permanent one, but still I'm protesting about this one week ban.

And I hope that all what he has done here, not only photos but also the so great WSs will also be seen just as before. They were excellent tools for us to learn about good photography - ah, these drastic crops for instance !

Have to go now, will be back - at least, in the forums !

If the photos are removed by the moderators - they will still remain on the server - they only remove them from publicity..

Well "Moderator", whoever you are : I don't agree at all with you decision of a 7 days ban. Not on Polonaise. Get rid of Scott Hale, who has been doing this all over TL and now starting on TE.

But Polonaise. No, this is a scandal. It leaves me shocked, angry, sad, and ready to leave myself if he does not come back. And I think some others would do.
But do you care at all ? as long as you get your clicks...

To ban one of the best photographers ever on this site, sparkling with intelligence, humour...because he replies to SC! Put the two on the same level...unbelievable.
Even a ban of one day for Polonaise is not right in my opinion.

What is happening with TE admin ? And why did you lock the previous thread ?
Forgotten that you (and many of us) leave in a democracy maybe ?

Back only when I see him here again.
