I suggest the forum staff do not give negative rep for people posting in conversations in the "Forum Suggestions & Feedback" section. It's really stupid to invite Members to have a conversation on how the forum might be improved, and then subject them to some fake, make-believe punishment for doing just that. It says something about a Membership that would tolerate this and something about the Staff that would do it. Also deleting threads with no comment or explanation. By what standard does this happen? If a Member has no idea why a thread could be deleted, then why would they invest the time & effort into creating one? So, threads do not get created, there is less of interest for new people to participate in and forum participation dies. And the money dies with it. How stupid is that?
