Yes, the thread was a violation of the CUP; it has nothing to do with supporting membership. I deleted it.
That said, if you want to use this thread to talk about Soo Basses, go ahead. If there are questions posted here, the member can answer them (and I notified him of this), as long as it's within the rules of the CUP. You also can send him a pm of course.
