I find it really appalling that some professionals who sign themselves as “forum pros” behave very unprofessionally.

One big problem with this forum setup that it lacks democracy. A forum pro can participate in a debate, and if it’s not going his/her way, can just close the thread or delete/alter conflicting opinions, even bash forum participants with different opinion.

Even more questionable practice, some of these “forum pro”-s are using aliases instead of their real names.

A feature this forum is lacking is a credit system, whereby the originator(questioner) can assign credit for helpful answers.

The trouble is, rm, that the moderator is frequently participant in the debate. Thus deleting a post with opposing opinion is not really a democratic way of operating a professional forum.

Why don't we let the questioner give out credit for helpful posts and add the credit to the rating of the answerer?
