To Whom It May Concern:
I have been a member of the above forum for some time. However, I must inform you that the administrator, Charbax, has been very abusive and indeed has resorted to deleting threads that he does not agree with. The Internet is all about free speech. His Gestapo methods are harmful to the reputation of Archos, since the company name is used in his title. I am the owner of three Archos devices, and I do not appreciate his methods. He needs to be stopped. Archos does not need this in your fight to gain acceptance in a difficult market.
Thank you for your time.

I am not deleting threads, I am moving those that are containing nonconstructive and provocative discussions to the Trash Talk section of this forum.
If anyone has a better idea, then please post. I haven't seen this in other forums, although other forums sometimes have some threads that are moved into an "Off-topic" sections.
I think instead of locking too many threads and deleting certain posts that are breaking forum rules, such as posts with attacks or provocation. Then it may be more democratic to let people who want to vent their anger in a forum section that is not moderated.
