1. We do not, nor have ever, censored posts and are surprised you would even suggest we do.
We have, however, limited the use of our site to those who do not egregiously test the limits of our willingness to let anyone say anything. Those few who have tested the limits have, in fact, been banned and thus prevented from posting and even viewing this website.
Some time ago, as we explained in an earlier post, we ceased to allow anyone to post links to outside sites and, at that time, prevented anyone from writing the full name of professor clown's website.
Therefore, when you or anyone types in that website's name the following **** appears.
We decided, for the moment, to leave both these tools in place, since we know as soon as we remove them the pissants will again abuse our openness.
2. As for referring to us as one of the "Ladies", we also take exception to that, as well.
We are fully prepared to back our position up with whatever it takes and believe few, if any, of our detractors would be as willing.
So please enjoy RK.com and post here whenever you like.
P.S. As for our questioning steve price's credentials and academic achievements? We did this to prove not only in the world of rugs is professor clown, a clown.
His standing in his 'profession' is even lowered than it is in rugdom.
As for our credentials? We believe our writing, both here on RK.com and the Weaving Art Museum website, as well as the 5 books we have authored prove our expertise and achievement.
The collection we have built over the last 35 plus years is also testament to our ability to put our money and expertise where our mouth is.
As a final note, we also collect in other areas have have several collections that are equally preeminent in their respective fields.
Ladies - put down your handbags.
I am quite prepared to support Jack Cassin and let my name and email address be known - I have no need for anonymity. I also understand the term "I have forgotten more than you have ever known" since I use it myself in my own professional field.
People who want to learn something about rugs are far more likely to learn things on Rugkazbah than they are on turk-tek.com - and the serious issues that are addressed on RK are not discussed elsewhere. Both sites censor posts.
A persons academic achievements (or lack of them) are irrelevant - you should both have learnt that by now.
