Attention all members

Please see email below that I just received from one of the owners of Castle (Caste) Windows:


Mark,
I am one of the owners of Caste Windows, i see that you have made a comment on our company in a negative light. As you may or may not know, this is a direct violation of the Contractor Talk website rules... (attached hereunder). Can you kindly remove your post? I would greatly appreciate your speedy co-operation.

If you do a search for "Castle Windows" on this forum, you will see that what I "implied" is nothing compared to some other threads.

I'm just curious if any of you fellow members that have posted possible negative information about this company, received the same email I did?

I find it a little presumptuous that other members (other than a moderator) are now dictating what are terms of use violations.

Subsequent response

Mark,
With all due respect, the post says that someone else had "issues" with Castle. This would imply something negative. Would you mind rephrasing this to something like the following

"David - search around the forum here, I think there have been prior discussions regarding Castle Windows.... "

This would be a mild inconvenience to help out a fellow contractor in the community. No hard feelings.

Chris

I don't see any violation made.

The original poster made an inquiry regarding your company, and I thought someone else had in the past, and I advised him to do a search.

No where in the Terms of Use did I violate anything.

Regards,

It this the post he is referring to?

You are entitled to your opinion. And that is all it is is an opinion.

I'm sure some people think Castle windows are great while others think they suck. The rules he pulled up are from the vendor TOS and do not apply to standard members.

If they are so offended about this small negative opinion I can't imagine what they would do if someone really had serious issues with something that they sell.

Yes, that is the post.

Now, compare my comment to what was made here: http://www.contractortalk.com/f33/castle-windows-doors-65278/

I wonder if any of these members received the same warning email?

I did this out of respect for CT & its members, I don’t need the headache nor does CT mods
I can go into further detail but feel this topic should be laid to rest

It certainly seems like Chris Cardillo of Castle windows is trying to shut down all criticism of his products, deserved or not. The unjust actions of Chris Cardillo, owner of Castle Windows reeks of heavy handed censorship. I believe that Chris Cardillo and Castle Windows is trying to hide poor reviews of their products from the general public
