    I had a thread with photos in the Member's Classified section entitled FS Feeler MAX '59 Burst that has disappeared/been removed? There had been several views and inquiries about the guitar. There was no reference to a brand name...nor any photos depicting same. There are several posts of similar "'59 Bursts" that remain on the forum.

    Can you offer an explanation of why thread was removed...and how I can modify the post...so I can repost on the forum?

    The rules are not interpreted selectively. The rules are the same for all, it is a matter of being caught. The mods are busy, they can't see everything. When they see it, they remove it. Simple as that.

    You have to understand, it's not Alex or the mods that want this rule. Gibson monitors this site and others for replica's, and it can spell big trouble for the site if replica's are being sold here.

    What the hell do you provide for us, that we should risk a lawsuit over intellectual property by letting you post whatever you wish on here? What makes you so special?

    We try and catch copyright infringements wherever we can, as Gibson's legal team has already sent the administrator correspondence which included requests that we pull such guitars from our classifieds here.

    So we're going to comply with that as best we can. We don't catch everything immediately, as we're not glued to this forum 24/7/365; we have lives.

    And if you don't like it so much that you whine and gripe and insult us with "what a joke" and "good ol' boys club", then you are most welcome to find a forum which better serves you.

    For free. Like this forum. Best, most active forum of its kind. Good luck with that.

    We owe you nothing.

    I guess a polite PM to a mod or Alex would be best practice to discuss the what and whys of the rules - not that I think they are subject to much discussion really.

    Being a little harsh Dave?
    After all, the guy does have 32 posts.
    Surely there's some insightful info in there somewhere! :D
