The "... level of deletion?
I check in every day, several times a day, and haven't noticed anything at all.
I too have been a member of many, many message boards over the years, and the Cafe is nothing like 99.9% of them.
You consistently will not find the swearing, the hard-core smack, the locked threads, the division into the "haves" and the "have-nots" or the truly ego-maniacal here.
This is a very open, fair and well-moderated forum.
You're in the right place. Maybe the only place.
If a post of yours has been deleted, I'm sure there is a good reason behind it.
That is certainly not the norm.
