Missing Thread

Post by commonsense »

Where is the thread named something like Transitory Nightmare: 143 words?

Probably the same place the 'mid-term elections' thread went: deletion land.

You're right. Another mod mistake.

Just an example of might makes right (like Trump).

On a different website, two of my threads were removed by a mod for unspecified reasons (probably due to pacifying a member who took exception). An admin took note and asked me if I would like them restored which I had done (and drew a nice response).

No mistakes being made here.

Try considering why a thread would be deleted upon a philosophy forum.

Why keep us guessing and state the reason(s) for removal so we can learn from our mistakes?

I'll give you a clue, think about your post and the categories available on the forum or whether your post is even philosophical.

Already have. Posted threads asking what philosophy is which no one can satisfactorily answer. But why focus on me? Many members are left guessing why the threads keep getting deleted without explanation. Also the Lounge isn't meant for philosophy according to its description, yet threads keep getting deleted from there as well.

Perhaps you could define philosophy for us then.

p.s.

Oh! Also I remove threads that to me have devolved into majpr off topic abuse or trolling, when I notice them that is. Is this unfair to those who haven't got involved? Probably but blame it on the original poster for not taking any responsibility for their thread and notifying the mods about posts they think are transgressions.

Of course it wouldn't be just things you don't agree with (or make you feel inadequate). You always were a humourless little wank-job Mickstinks.

What has MickThinks got to do with this?

Still, since we're on the topic of moderation I might as well notify everyone that the 'powers that be' are going to be appointing some new moderators for some of the various categories and although I don't know them, or ever will, I suspect they will bring a different approach than the one this kind and benevolent tyrant has so far allowed. So you'll be getting reasons for why your posts have been deleted and why you've been banned, which I suspect quite a few of you will be. :lol:
