    You won't name names... Is that because you don't want it resolved!

    I'll leave this alone now, sorry you feel like this, I hope you don't loose sleep over it, I know having a post deleted must be hard,
    I guess you must have a small world to make such a deal of it, unless of course this is politics, and being as you refuse to try sort it, it is looking that way

    But continue to make the same point over again,

    When we first got into saltwater, the person we bought tank from recommend masa, as a great support to newbies. So I joined and posted (yes looking back now stupid questions) as a total newbie, who didn't even know how to read a test kit.

    I have to say, that the response was horrid, "here we go again""do your research "read the sticky's if you want that answered"
    I never posted again. I felt very intimidated by it, felt stupid.

    Thank god I bumped into a guy at the LFS who mentioned "the reefuge"

    Never once have I felt intimidated or stupid for asking even the dumbest questions (which I know I have ).

    hat Lesley is a seperate issue
    And one masa is looking Into,
    All the complaints here are legit and have been taken seriously

    I can't stress enough, masa and reefuge are platforms, and with platforms comes a Veriety of personalities

    Loose masa, and you will have those personalities here as well,
    Give reefuge a few years and you will have another forum saying the same thing and blaming a site
    Rather then the individuals

    Correct. I won't name names. It is your committee and your moderators. That is leg work for you to do, not me. As far as me not wanting this to be resolved, you missed the point of the thread completely. There is no answer I will be able to give you if that is your line of thinking.

    Thanks.

    I am not a member of any other forums because I have found, everyone is a know it all, people stick together with their mates and pick on others.

    I am part of this community as I love reefing, I love looking at other peoples tanks, I love socialising about reefing and sharing ideas and notes etc AND I LOVE THAT IT ISNT FUCKING CENSORED!

    I would like to say to some of the people commenting on this thread that have stated they don't like the political side, YOU MUST with how many fucken posts you have, so you are saying one thing and doing another, if you don't like the political side why post in the first place.

    I believe the Reefuge is doing the right thing and sharing it's information with others, and I find it interesting that other sites will not allow the Reefuge's information to be shared, seems to me they feel threatened by the competition.

    Thank you for sharing your information Reefuge, I understand the point your making, I understand why you created a thread about what has happened, and I totally agree.

    That is not a like for like example.
    they are business who run based on profit. $ is not the fuel for these forums...the sharing of content between hobbyists is and thats what the reefuge is trying to improve.

    i was keeping my reply on the topic posted by the refuge and following that discussion have been following it up on masa with the relevant committee this is now under discussion .
    as for the other experiences mentioned they have also been bought to the committee
    by ollie and i also think masa is over moderated and not as welcoming as it once was
    particularly to newbies .
    sadly that often comes down to who answers that first question
    there are many more really lovely members on masa very happy to share their knowledge and help where they can .

    It seems to me like those two are just trying to stop the Reefuge from talking truths about masa, the same thing that the forum moderators do, "nope your wrong, that's wrong, stop slandering us".
    I'm backing @The Reefuge 100% here.

    I would just like to make a really quick point that @coral1 has stood up for The Reefuge on multiple occasions. Being in the position she is in (president of MASOV) she has very kindly backed The Reefuge on multiple occasions - to MASA.

    Thanks.

    It also seems (after reading through comments thoroughly) that people have no issues with the masX groups, the individual state groups seem like they are well run and moderated.
    However the main public access forum, is letting the entire group down. I personally have not joined masov, because one of the mods who would continually have a go at me was a part of it. And honestly I'd rather not have to ever meet or speak to those people

    Can you raise chromus being a total dick to new members too? He has been doing it for years and even resulted in petcity cutting ties with masa at one point. People in the industry reccomend reef central and nano reef to beginers, because they dont want to send lambs to the slaughter.

    How it is offensive to you? It is my opinion on how things post has gone. And how it has been portrayed to me. It's not a personal attack against you. I'm sure you are a nice guy. Again its just how I have taken the information presented to me.
    Even though it's true. He is a bit of a dick to everyone he disagrees with. Also I wasn't the one who said it, just agreed with the person who did
