I'm deeply disappointed with the way this forum is run.
It's clear that someone's interests play a huge role in what gets moved where and when.
This is not the idea of a community forum.
Calm down Vlad. Is it really that important?
...and do you really think it happened and that it was intentional?
I haven't really been following this topic but every now and then I come here to see what's up, if there are any fun photos or so. I seem to recall that two weeks ago when I came here I saw plenty of empty posting that had been edited. Have a whole series of empty posts is pretty useless and I think I deleted one or two, but stopped worrying about the reason for such empty posts and moved on to somewhere else.
If there is a post that a moderator finds reasonable to delete we have an old rule that NO POSTS should be deleted. Instead Adam and I agreed to move such posts to the Thrash Can forum (only visible to admins). Only rarely do posts get moved there. If it was a misunderstanding or if there is a long debate about that post, we can bring it out again.
...but if doesn't prevent a moderator to simply edit your post. That's part of the rules here. Of course it shouldn't be misused, but for me it is reasonable to edit out the worst part of a post in a fighting situation. Good we don't have so many of those! In reality I think very few moderators really moderate the forums that hard. I would suspect you post(s) was only accidentally edited/deleted. I don't really think it was intentional by anyone.
Now back to slalom related stuff, or?
PS. Or did I misunderstand this whole argument?
