I understand your sentiments. But really, the sense of openness on this Dhammawheel board is pretty good. It's just that E-Sangha is a touchy issue, involving longstanding friendships, different philosophies of board management, and so on. So the mods here are trying to be careful. Most of us don't really know all the stuff that went on, and I'm not sure it's any of our business.
You can find some E-Sangha discussion at zenforuminternational.org. Lots of folks here and there also still post at E-Sangha and support it. No grand conspiracy that I'm aware of. Just different strokes for different folks. Hope you can make the most of all the good stuff over here.
