Don't know if this thread will get deleted, but...
I've only had a single
post on this board get deleted, and I still disagree with the reasons. That being said, it's their turf, and they can set the rules. I'm not saying that you should just deal with it and smile, but in any community (online or otherwise), there are some rules, and every now and then those rules cross your path and you don't like them.
I figure out of the hundreds of posts I've made, and the tons of valuable information I've gotten out of this board, the great stuff more than overshadows the lame stuff (like my deleted post).
I dunno. We're probably not supposed to like rules, but you need them to keep things organized. The part about getting nasty is a little saber-rattling though.
