I just read your other threads where you describe issues you had with your Autonomy... these threads you posted BEFORE this one, and, I mean, Spyderco did not redact, block or remove YOUR critical posts, so I do not fully understand how you came to think they would do so generally?
Furthermore, they replied to your critics by asking you to send the knife in so they could make it right.
I was a long time occasional lurker, but active on this forum only for a few month now, and I can remember more than one post or thread where people complained about issues they had or even expressed that they thought other makers would do things better than Spyderco.
That was always accepted, adressed and discussed in a good manner imho.
And as much as I like Spyderco, I myself have no problems to admit that of course they are not totally flawless all the time - who is?
I had a Delica exchanged by the dealer cause the centering was not to my liking.
One of my Enduras has an uneven grind, which does not bother me, but if it would, I am sure Spyderco would take care of it.
Just my honest opinion, and if I'd feel different (more negative) I'd have no problem to say so, even though Spyderco is by far my favorite knifemaker
EDIT: Just read your original post once more. Sorry, I guess I did misunderstood it the first time: You meant, if FORUM-MEMBERS hesitate tp post negative experiences, NOT if Spyderco would block or supress those.
