Why Are My Posts Still Disappearing?

by Bugbatter / July 16, 2006 1:39 PM PDT

Attn: Lee Koo

How do we fix this?
I have tried three times to post in this thread:
http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=190571&messageID=2064606
After one message disappeared I posted a replacement. Each post stayed up for a while, but eventually disappeared. As far as I can tell only my posts in the thread have been deleted.

Here is a link to the last one:
http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=190571&messageID=2073916

I do not have links to the first two posts, but I do have screenshots if that is any help.
Please let me know if I should post them.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you. Happy

I am NOT Lee.....

I reported the 3 posts you made and then deleted them. ALL moderators plus Lee Koo get these reports.

First of all, you were NOT at all involved in that thread !

I have told the member I couldn't find her HJT log in that particular forum. She didn't respond. And there is NO NEED at all for you to post 2 days later and ask her to give a link to her HJT log.

IF you want to help members... fine..... but pls. stop this "nonsense". I am NOT amused.

''pls. stop this ''nonsense''. I am NOT amused.''

I do not understand what you mean by ''nonsense'? Are you interpreting the post I made as an invasion of the thread?
It was at a Moderator's request that a member post a Hijackthis log. You replied that you could not find his username at SWI. After my trying to find the post at SWI for two days, it made sense to me that we would need a link to the post in order to find it. HijackThis logs can sit in those forums for several days before they are handled.

''First of all, you were NOT at all involved in that thread !''
Yes, I was involved because I had been following it and was also unable to find the post at SWI. I merely asked him to post the link so that we could follow the resolution. I did not realize that was wrong.

The CNET forums are a learning/sharing experience for all of us. My posts have been deleted often, but I thought that was a software glitch.

Please let us members know at what point someone becomes "involved" in a thread so that we will know whether or not to reply with suggestions or questions.
We certainly do not want to offend anyone. I apologize if I did.

There are some that want the rules in endless chapters of writing.

You could do well to learn by reading posts and getting to feel of the forums. When your posts vanish, think over why it may happen and adjust your posting style so they stick.

If you are combative then your posts will indeed vanish. There are other words that you can use in that sentence as well.

Bob, here is the text in question:

''Please post a link to the log that you submitted at SpywareInfo so we see how the issue was resolved. Thanks :)''

How can this be considered ''combative''? In reviewing my posts over the years, I do not see a ''combative'' tone in any of them.

I don't have the full dialogue but I'll repeat it again.

Keep trying. See what sticks and what doesn't.

Be sure that it wasn't collateral damage. Sometimes a thread goes widely off track and once one reply is deleted, the result is more to remove.

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?
