Interesting KT53 but I suspect you do not even know what the marked comment was. if you don't no doubt you will hurriedly try to find out but why then post this now? i feel mischief is intended here.
Many here have not notiiced or were not offended by it. The recipient of the comment did not complain and later was as non plussed as most of us. I am almost tempted to quote the comment but I won't....it really is a case of making a mountain out of a mole hill. Of someone not remotely involved choosing to be offended. Almost on a whim and then took action to close down a whole thread.
it was NOT the correct thing to do because far worse things are said here.
It was my thread on a subject raised as a pm to me on a subject that had already stirred opinions. I notice this subject is still being asked about on another thread.
the poster should have been advised and given the option of withdrawing or apologising.....I think the poster would have done this
I am aware of instances where posters have been upset at times and expressed this. No supporting comments were posted.
A precedent has been set now. The bar has been set ao low that many threads could now be deleted. Mark my words this will happen again. Perhaps when it personally affects someone else the injustice of it will be felt.
how can obvious scam or insulting threads persist before being deleted. My thread was deleted almost immediately.
KT53 you have resurrected an issue that we all have been trying to overlook by commenting here on other things. i myself have tried to move on by adding my comments on a different subject on this thread.
this action has raised the belief that cliques have developed here. I hope this is not the case..
I raised a comment earlier today of far more serious concern. Apart from some direct pm's there was no response on the forum.
As the person most affected by the removal of this thread will you allow me the last word on this? I suggest the subject be closed now. No further fanning of the flames, ok?
