A couple of minutes ago I was reading a thread from a member who was complaining about a prior thread of his being deleted. I tried to respond and got an error message saying that thread was deleted! Other than one responder using a possible no-no word, I did not see anything objectionable. In five years of membership and even having been mildly reprimanded by Amin once or twice, I have never felt that this forum was one of the gestapo-moderated ones that you find from time to time. Explanation please?
