    A good mate of mine recommended Astronomy Connect to me, the one and only Mak the Night

    Well I migrated from CN because of the moderators and their one-sided views on a matter. They have acted as demi-gods unfortunately. I was called a shill and made a Vendor Affiliate because I was promoting a new product solely based on information provided by the company's website, facebook, Amazon, YouTube, etc.
    I have never received anything from Svbony nor signed any documents to be an "experiencer", a word I learned from CN just two days ago. They could not comprehend this yet they allow their moderators and others to do the same thing. I found out about such an incident today and wrote to the owner to rescind my Vendor Affiliate designation and guess what?

    I was shut down this evening without any notice by them today following the correspondence below with the Owner.

    So hello everyone... I only do visual, use Maks and refractors, and am happy to read posts and contribute to this forum

    Long time ago I used to be very active on CN. Unfortunately, I later realized it was rife with "experts" intolereant of contrasting views, who half the time didn't even know what they were talking about. I also noticed a preponderance for discussions to degrade into "barroom brawls". I still have my account, but rarely even look on CN. I keep it mainly to sell off equipment I no longer use.

    Welcome to AC. Glad to hear you and Mak are good mates. He's a good guy.

    Thank you for the welcome Ed.

    Mak is such a knowledgeable person on scopes and eyepieces.

    You are so correct in your assessment of CN. What is happening with a thread of mine is exactly what is occurring. Now they have completely deleted my thread which had over 14000 views and almost 500 posts.
    Go figure that one out.


    again thanks!

    Amen Reggie. I have asked some of my CN friends to migrate here. I hope they do.
