My opinion is that you should email Lee Koo

rather than trying to bring the SpeakEasy over here and put Lee Koo on the 'spot'. Don't you still have Moderators in SpeakEasy?

What a diplomatic approach

I interpret your post not merely asking for an opinion but more "TO EVALUATE or TAKE ACTION" whether the subsequent posts and replies in the links you provided violates the TOS.

Just to offer you an insightful message from cnet page, a portion of the clause clearly indicates,

You may be exposed to content that you find offensive, indecent, or objectionable or that is inaccurate, and you bear all risks associated with using that content. We have the right, but not the obligation, to remove any content that may, in our sole discretion, violate these Terms or that is otherwise objectionable.

Given the name "Speakeasy" and to add the descriptive word, "The Buzz", I find that it is a place to discuss "ideas or issues" that might interest other members, speaking their mind, responding, making references to links to support or otherwise an invitation to engage in a discussion. You don?t expect everyone to agree with you eh, moreover selectively paranoid to be often cautious with every word used to cater to an individual or group?s preferences.

I See Speakeasy As A Little Diiferent- - - - -

type of forum. It is the Hyde Park of CNET. It is a place for people to speak their minds even if it may be offensive to some. Flaming is the order of the day.
Speakeasy serves another purpose. It is like giving a dog a bone to chew on (on which to chew?). While he is busy gnawing away at the bone he is not bothering anyone else. So, let them flame away, call each other names and do all kinds of mischief but keep it on Speakeasy and spare the rest of us.
Out of curiosity I took a peek at the thread in question and I noted a CNET moderator joined the fray.
I don't have any idea what Lee's opinion is but I hope he just treats the situation with skillful and benign neglect.
And, Glenda, I noticed you are a regular participant on Speakeasy so you must be aware of the mood on that forum.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
