I started asking my questions in the Zapper Support Forum
. Apparently, someone was offended enough to alert the webmaster. The next tme I tried to post something, I was blocked for being a "troll".
The email I tried to send to the webnaster in response pointed out that I had read 40 pages of old messages to get a feel for the nature of things before I jumped in, that there were other posts with the same kinds of questions I was asking, and that I had asked for suggestions for other, more appropriate forums.
The things I wrote were trivial compared to the flame wars available for all to read on this site. I guess that mearly the *perception* of disagreement with the philosophies supported by CZ is enough to justify banishment. Overall, not a very impressive performance. Power does indeed corrupt.
