What's the deal with Alécio Costa? Was he asked to leave and if so why? Why was my post deleted when I asked about him? I consider a lot of these folks on RO my friends. I feel the members that frequent this place have a right to know what's going on. Alécio gave me the impression that he was removed as monitor without his knowledge. I'm going to stick up for him as I don't see a lot of others having the balls to do so. I think that they're afraid of the heavy handed politics that often goes on here. I mean why even get involved in that mess? I never knew him to say a bad word about anyone. If my post gets removed for asking a simple question about a friend then I really need to ask myself if I should remain on this board. If we don't have the guts to stand with or at the very least inquire about our friends then what kind of human beings have we become?
