I cannot reply a second time as your "E-mail this Member" box has disappeared. Did you edit this out of your profile? To be honest with you, I have no answer for the question you posed but can see that your post disappeared. I don't know how much activity there was on it before this happened. I would not count myself as being one who knows what goes on underneath these forums. I can only offer some possibilities. One suggestion I might make before posting a link is to think about how to offer it properly to the forum members for their perusal and comments. Give a good reason why it was posted. If you are looking for comments/opinions, offer yours first. If you know or even suspect, you're putting a hot potato on the plate, be even more cautious and diplomatic in your wording. There are also subjects that have been bantered and bandied too often and always head down a bad road. Perhaps a MOD might yank a post based on a "been there, done that" experience. You will not know why. Don't let anything here sour you. For all the arguing, griping, bickering, needling, and worse that happens here I am willing to bet if all the members were all placed face to face in a room with an open bar and bowls of munchies there'd be a whale of a good party with more handshakes and hugs than fists in the eye.;)

than our posts!3 posts and gone.It's strange how some people are allowed to post links about any kind of news and when I tried to post it it disappears.The first time I posted I think there was one or two replies,none indicating any kind of flaming.The second the two replies from you and me.I have emailed the moderators and none of them has had the politeness to get back to me to explain what was wrong with the post.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
