that the bottom line of that original posted message is to incite or inflame members, the thread gets locked down or removed as seen fit by the Moderators, no matter which forum the post is in, just as posts asking for information about how to get around piracy/copyright laws get locked or removed.
When a member repeatedly posts the same message over and over and over, the replies immediately start heading south......the post is never, although veiled to try to make it appear otherwise, to debate anything. It is posted deliberately to cause confrontation because the same posts are always negative. Many times, many posts are deleted from the thread before members even know they are there, and the thread is locked to prevent it from heading south again rather than remove the whole thread.
Sometimes, a thead is locked down long enough to give the moderators time to clean out the garbage posts that are insulting, inflammatory, etc., and then the thread is unlocked.
No matter what the reasons the moderators have for doing what they do, the only people they have to explain their actions to is Lee Koo.......not the members. So all the 'why' type questions in the world won't get the answers you (or others) think they are entitled to. Moderators have no obligation to explain their actions to members nor do they have an obligation to email members to tell them why a post was deleted, although there are times when the moderator will give that courtesy, and actually include a copy of the post that was deleted within the email telling the member what needs to be cleaned up so they can repost it.
Trouble makers will always complain about ill treatment.....but they have no way of knowing how many other posts from OTHER members have been also deleted and automatically assume that they are the only targets. Paranoia runs deep.
