-Marketing kites and kiting is bad
-Although it's OK to accept marketing freebies (free kites) from the industry and develop advertisement for the industry
-Kiting is not safe
-RickI is a selfish idiot
Anything else? Didn't find any more wisdom in his speeches. Check for yourselves.
Need Fo to form your own opinion?
No biggie. Post-on.
I am finding this thread to be quite entertaining.
Maybe I missed a post but I have not seen anyone defend Fo's opinions. I cant speak for all that think banning Fo was a bad decision. I see it as a canary in the coal mine. A sign that this forum is becoming pussyfied (I know it is not a real word). Why get caught up in the delivery instead of seeing what is really being said? Why squeal like a stuck pig because your feelings were hurt?
My best guess---No testicular fortitude!!!
New Slogan Kiteforum--- Where whiners rule
Relax. Fo / afflatus can still read this forum. And he can probably re-join under a new guise. Let's see... Fo sounded a bit like "Flo"..... and afflatus sounded a bit like "afflat" (quack-quack)... Abandon the avatar that you once were and be re-born anew. Its just virtual.

I have seen this argument posted a few times here. If Fo will be back under a new name than what is the purpose of banning him or anyone in the first place? What is accomplished except temporarily appeasing the whiners?
