Removing posts


If posts are removed from a thread, could the poster be notified as to why? Wouldn't that be considered common politeness?

I had just responded as to the inappropriate nature of rip's comment about his activity on the beds at Primm. All the posts concerning this were removed, even those that didn't quote rip.

Well, at least I didn't erase my own posts, unlike some people...

Erratic; when? the most recent removal, or the erasing of posts by the author(s) a couple of years back I alluded to in my reply to Jon?

No, just in general. Removing a post ain't big news, until people start talking about it, and wondering what was removed.

I'd certainly like to delete a few of mine that were made in haste, but they're locked so I can't.....

You can't do anything to a post in a Locked thread...not even edit...

But all this talk has made me realize that posts have been deleted that I asked for deletion a long time ago, and they refused to. Very strange that they are gone now.

So, I guess my mess got sweeped under the carpet, thanks PKF admin!

Yes posts were removed last week. Deservedly so. pkf is not the admin for that forum so might not have been aware. The moderator of the nabx forum, has his hands full with nabx, so the courtesy note probably won't make it to the top of the to-do list.

I'm the only mod who may remove posts... wasn't me. How about a link to the thread in question?

Regarding removal notices: the only time I remove posts is when they break our posted rules. Since everyone should know the rules, I don't think it is necessary to spend my mornings writing explanations.

Is it possible that the thread was moved to a different category? It is often necessary to move threads to the correct category.

My reply to someone else's reply to rip was something along the line of "Agreed. This is a family oriented activity/forum."

Which forum rule does that break?

Beamer: I'll address my questions to the mod of the nabx forum. Thread wasn't moved, as it is still there! Just four posts were deleted.

Yeah that was weird. Scudley, GeoKite and I immediately commented on a most inappropriate post from a prominent PKF member. Made me think that his account was hacked, it was in such poor taste. Then all the posts except MarS-P-A-M-L-I-N-K-s original post (useful and thoughtful) were removed.

Makes me think that someone is cleaning up for his mistake, for whatever reason. Some guardian angel maybe?

If this is the case, it gives me a creepy feeling, someone trying to erase all history of it. Reminds me a communist gov't. (ok, that may be a bit extreme)

LOL, makes me remember back in the day when we said that Russian History books had loose-leaf pages.

I'll say it again... I didn't remove any posts from this thread. I don't know of any rules broken, no reports made, in fact, I haven't read this thread until now.

Correction of an earlier statement: event forum mods are able to delete posts in their own forums. If a mod finds a post offensive, they may remove it at their discretion. I guess that is what happened here.
