EDIT - i added a third thing to the list, the fact that Charlie abuses people by posting private info he got from them on a public forum.
having a forum also doesn't mean you can act like an a**ho**.
this does not mean i am in favor of disbanding his forum. i dont think he's done anything worse that a few other forum owners who shall remain nameless. in fact i am sure i could come up with examples of at least two forum owners who have done much worse than charlie.
this was a combination of three things.
1. Charlie acting like an a**ho** and making absurdly overinflated claims about what his tonic was capable of.
2. Charlie violating rules and common human decency by posting private info on a public forum. who does that?
3. A never ending campaign to discredit him, some of it based on sound opinion some was just the Iodine crowd getting all hysterical as they are prone to do.
