Anyway, there is a reason why we (most of the times) remove and ban newusers that post "soapbox" topics. We have a lot of experience around here and we try to keep it clean.
As I said in this specific case the discussion was going nowhere so ScottPalmer locked the thread. That was enough for the OP to say via PM that we locked the discussion at this telco's request. When Scott denied it and said the account would be banned the OP replied with this gem:
Moderator or not, frankly from your last reply before you so-called "locked" the thread, it's more than obvious you're either a [telco name removed] employee or a fanatical cult member who blindly worships [telco name removed]. I suspect it's the former, so don't bother denying it. I just sympathise with the true users of Geekzone, they will never get to see any unbiased comments or moderation from this forum. Do you what you will, your pathetic attempt to intimidate amuses me.
We remove soapbox post from first time users and will continue to do so. If someone comes here looking for help we can almost immediately see this by the tone of the first post. We do not accept trolls - except of course the ones we know around here ;)
This is why that topic was removed and the user banned.
