Having just read this thread, perhaps I should attempt to set the record straight - from my point anyway.
It was as Tetley said - I had asked whether or not anyone could confirm something I had recently been told. I specifically said I didn't want to know any details - simply whether, if true, it could alter things in the US election. I also made a couple of references to my informant having laid a bet on the outcome and hoping to lose.
Of necessity, I'm paraphrasing as my posts were obviously deleted at the same time as the thread.
The thread title was descriptive - there could be no mistake about the content. I further clarified by saying my query was not garden related. Anyone reading further would already be aware I wasn't asking about Begonias.
The last thing I said was along the lines of "........if no one has heard anything, I had perhaps been misinformed and so it was back to gardening for me".
I very rarely look at or post on the forum after 6 pm and I therefore have no idea what others posted after the initial few responses. I haven't received any communication from the Forum mods nor do I expect to. I noticed that the thread had been removed but haven't queried it nor do I intend to as I rather think I know the reason.
If anyone wishes to debate the removal and the reason for it, please be aware that you will be doing so on your own behalf - not on mine. I didn't set out to cause controversy but I do admit to being guilty of thinking this is an adult forum. Or perhaps I should rephrase that..........a forum used by adults ?
