    Post An Important Announcement From Your WBF Admin Team




    To all members of Whats Best Forum.........



    When Amir left the administrative/ownership team of WBF, an agreement was made which allowed him one year of unrestricted membership here at Whats Best Forum. The details of this legal agreement will remain private. This aforementioned one-year period has ended. In this past year Amir has established his own website.As a result a unanimous decision was made by the WBF Admin team to permanently revoke his membership here at Whats Best Forum.This decision is permanent and will under no circumstance be reversed. While we understand that some members may question this action we feel that this is in the best interests of WBF going forward. We would ask that no threads or discussions be placed on the forum with regard to this matter. Please direct such comments to an admin team member via PM. We all wish Amir continued success with his website.

    In that case, which I will indeed not discuss as wished for, I would suggest you close this thread before, well, it will be discussed

    I also wish Amir continued success with his website.

    Good afternoon all
    I sent a message to admin after reading this and have been asked to post it here so here goes

    Good morning
    Firstly congratulations on a great forum
    Just to let you know in the 2 years I have been a member here although I have never got round to posting I pop in most days to peruse the latest posts
    I must let you know I have just read the best post I have ever seen here, that being the news that Amir has finally been banned.

    Best Regards
    Trevor




    Once again congrats on a great forum and one which i suspect will get even better.

    I support this decision and thank the Admin team for making this hard call. Amir's agenda and his approach of injecting it ran counter to the forum purpose as I see it. just my personal viewpoint.

    I wish Amir and his website well.

    This a good decision by the forum administrators. Since I joined this forum a few years ago, I've seen a steady decline in the civility of the discussions between members. I personally believe that this decline will be reversed by the culling of members that attack, belittle and seek to embarrass fellow hobbyists.

    IMO Amir often adds some good information that provokes thought, but it is usually presented in a manner that does a disservice to the very information provided. While we've had our differences I have no animosity and wish Amir the best.

    And of course there were also many who were way oversensitive to anything Amir. In some instances it was plain ridiculous. Let's not forget that.

    All one has to do is visit Amir's own forum and look at how he trashes hobbyist's personal systems that he has been graciously invited to visit. Completely rude and uncivilized.
