You are wrong is as much as Seymour Center Stage material is a specifically mfg Screen material, sold as such, by a Company whose business is selling "MFG Screen Material"
Spandex is used by millions to cover their arses. It's a Fabric intended for clothing use. It is not, nor was intended to be a Screen material. It's use as such constitutes a "DIY Find".
When is the last..or even the first time you've seen someone wearing Seymour Fabric while running a Marathon on CT.?
Crossover requests where people are making inquiries as to how to build a Frame are going to by nature come our way on DIY Screens. and certainly some will entail the poster wanting to use new or used Mfg Screen material. What is contrary to the Rules and ideals of DIY Screens is elaborating on why someone should be using a Mfg Screen material instead of available DIY selections. If they truly need a Mfg product, a simple reference to same and a directed response toward the Frame issue is all that is...and should be offered. Anything else...take it to PMs or suggest that a dedicated Thread on the "Build" be introduced on "Screens".
Really.....this is all just so obvious, and for anyone who regularly frequents this particular Forum to repeatedly state that they do not know the difference between what this DIY Forum stands for...and against, that is very hard to swallow as being anything but a convenient case of ignorance. That's not an intended slight or insult...just an expression of how silly trying to make out that there is no difference between an expensive, dedicated Mfg Screen Cloth and some Spandex Cloth from a Cloth Distributor as far as what is or is not accepted as falling under the stated Rules on this DIY Forum.
The real fact is, DIY applications are not welcome or allowed on "Screens" Not even a little twist like "I bought a Mfg Frame, but I want to apply a Sheet of Sintra painted with a basic Gray paint" will find acceptance. In the reverse, even the mention of using "GOO paint", a Mfg Paint for DIY'ers is something that can only be discussed about on "Screens".
The Forum Owners made these rules to keep promotion of DIY ideals off "Screens" and to keep Mfg Screen products off DIY Screens. The latter to prevent Mfg Screen Products from being promoted (ie: discussed beyond a "mention") by the Sellers of such. That also applies to those who own such products. It's an austere rule...no denying that...but it has to be explicit and unyielding or guess what happens....? A groundswell of threads and responses exactly like what has occurred on several Threads, and initiated and carried on with a purpose by a few individuals. That's it...really. Where's the misunderstanding here?
