Cat lady sorry for the delay in responding but I was banned for some unknown reason.
You said I have seen SI remove the offending posts, as well as suspend the poster. That makes judging the merit of the suspension, after the fact, by outsiders, impossible.

I have no way of knowing for certain if this applies to the two you
cite, but chances are the posts that got them suspended aren't on-line any more.

Good assumption and I admit that you are probably right. My position in regards to the 2 mentioned Martin Smith & Ray Burke is that these 2 above all have held high the quality of their contributions and in no way in my memory ever said a cross word to anyone (Even Valuespec). I believe that in the dialogue with VS Martin kept his very English gentleman demeanor and tried to correct the basher. As for ray all he ever did was expand the knowledge 10 fold to every reader by doing incredible research and sharing it unselfishly. In case you are wondering I have been a fan of these 2 for going on 2 years and I think it is a major injustice that these 2 have lost their ability to participate here. SI should wake up to the fact that there is competition out there, and to take this stand will only strengthen the competition.
I am sorry it has to come to this soap opera but being that there are people who are hiding behind the 1st amendment and have attacked public companies using the protective smoke screen that "this is just my opinion and I hope I am wrong yada yada" or some other cute way to defray their obvious slander attempts, sickens me.

Nuff said
