Slabbed values our first amendment rights as a media outlet and public forum. That said I have occasionally been approached about pulling factual posts on humanitarian grounds. Such was the case with a Gulfport stockbroker back in 2008 when I marked a factual post as private. While I have not been approached by family of the late Roy D’Aquila to remove this post I have decided based upon reader comments to remove the original post for humanitarian reasons as it is not my intent to inflict further emotional pain on Mr D’Aquila’s family at this very difficult time for them.
I again wish to express the condolences of the entire Slabbed Nation to Mrs D’Aquila and family and we pray their pain is assuaged in time.
