Freedom of Speech applies to the government, not to individuals or companies. Try calling your boss an A-hole and then claim your Freedom of Speech rights when he fires you.

Telling the truth and insulting someone are not exactly the same thing now , are they ? The moment someone stops you from telling the truth, you should be objecting to that since you are being oppressed ...

Anyways, I hope OP gets his problems resolved .....

Freedom of speech .. until someone else decies you can not have it .....

Just my humble opinion.
X2 was thinking the same thing. Only i would wait for it to be made right first.

I reviewed a dealer on goole once...funny how fast things can change for the better.

Meh, I'd tell them to fix the problem first then go from there.

Sometimes the truth hurts.

Funny thing about "truth"; everyone seems to have their own version.

Truth to one is slander to another.

Just about the same for opinions.

And that is why we have courts !

Ok, I do not want this thread to get sidetracked, that was not my intention at all. After all I would be the one whose wrists get slapped by the moderators if it gets off track

Focusing on the issues at hand and telling how it is / is free speech.
Making it personal and name calling demeaning someone / then it becomes slander.

Gotta wonder how much attention or priority Forest River gives to the various threads here. Maybe they read them everyday--I don't know. I've never seen a post by a Forest River rep in this forum. Maybe they contact folks via PM or email directly?

The few minor issues I had with my new 2013 were handled well. My purchasing dealer is over a 1,000 miles away, but I passed them out and back during my vacation. They were very accommodating. On one occasion I had to purchase a replacement propane tank regulator while I was on the road. Sent in the receipt and FR sent me a refund check. The nearest FR dealer is over a 100 miles from my home; however, there's a very reputable RV repair facility a few miles from my house that is authorized to repair FR's on a case-by-case basis.

My apologies for getting us off track on this. I was just trying to point out that people misconstrue the purpose of the Freedom of Speech provision in that it only prohibits the government from restricting speech, not private individuals or companies. In this case, with the manufacturer making it a condition that he delete all posts relating to this issue is similar to settlement agreements where a condition is made that neither party is to disclose the details of the settlement. Although reprehensible, this is not a FoS issue.
