Just yesterday I asked a hobbyist to define his tanks layout on Facebook, and since he could not give a satisfactory answer, I shared his post on other group. Next day I get a threatening phone call from him and in very harsh tone, i was told " DONT INTERFERE IN MY POST OR ELSE I WILL SHOW YOU IN MAM ".
Since I was extremely offended I was of the opinion of lodging a police complaint for getting a threatening phone call.
If members are offended from just a share of their post, then they should simply write their statement boldly on their posts. Please dont threaten members on phone and do dadagiri. This clearly falls into the frame of crime. I wanted to report this to the authority, and when told to the offender that he can get into police inquiry, I got a shocking answer " Do whatever you want to do" . Others added fuel to fire when it was taken on whatsapp.
As of today I dissolve MAM, and since I had been posting most of the MAM meets, I announce desolving the MAM group. I am not writing this as if I owned MAM, but, since I had the privilege of posting the threads here, and therefore since I started it, I am closing it.
It was a very good group until a few miscreants entered the group to break it.
Just some civic sense- "Its very important to know the back ground of people entering a group in person. And it is very true that we make a good society by gathering good people"
I made a strong effort to keep people together, but I failed because people get offensive and get into dadagiri.

I feel MAM is not owned by anyone. So no one has the right to dissolve it. It was not created and is not a platform to settle personal issues. Please handle it privately and offline. Because of these personal issues it is reflecting badly on MAM. We will continue to meet. You are free to join if you need.
