They obviously would, since they only recently changed the Upload section to prevent people just uploading things there publicly. Now as soon as anything is uploaded it is removed again until it can be "vetted".
You also only have to look at Jay's postings on this very forum to see which side his bread is buttered with regard to anyone considered "undesirable" at VPF.
As I've said, I don't think Shivasite is the solution, as it's infected with the exact same disease as VPF, just at a less advanced stage. But it's a moot point since, as you say, me and my views aren't included in the invitation anyway.
