This thread of mine http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/616527/cant-remove-device-from-dolphin/#entry4016715 was recently closed for what I consider a less than intelligent reason. The reason being that I had posted the same question on another forum. This is akin to a doctor refusing to see a patient due to the patient having sought a second opinion. Had this "egregious" violation been stated in the Forum Rules section, I would have gladly followed the rules. It appears to me the rules are made up on the fly as one sees fit. Sad

Hello,

The issue is not that you sought help from multiple places. . . it's that you're actively seeking help from multiple places simultaneously.

Trying to troubleshoot an issue while multiple people are giving instructions simultaneously is very distracting and difficult. . . because we can no longer be sure if a change occurred because of something we told you to do, or something you were told to do elsewhere.

So, pick a forum, and follow the advice you get there. . . if they can't solve your issue, go elsewhere.

To use your own argument. . . no issue with getting a second opinion from another doctor. . . but it is quite foolish to take treatment from both simultaneously.

Thank you. Though I find the undocumented rule / policy, I'll take your advice.
