Why are posts deleted?

Postby Zippy » Wed Dec 03, 2003 12:45 pm

although i am new to the cafe, i have participated in lots of message boards and other than the nazis at rotojunkie have never experienced the level of deletion that i have in 2 days here.

i posted in the thread about women here and in ff leagues regarding a girl in a league i am in and it was deleted.

can we not say boobies?

or blond hair (natural)?

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.

maybe I should go back and read the terms of service.

I may have missed that when I walked into the cafe.

I think I may have had a post deleted as well yesterday.

O well...


learning as I go here.

so far so good. ;-D

Yes there were a couple posts deleted yesterday. There were a couple a maybe questionable MJ jokes on them. One of them by me.

I know there are young kids that frequent these boards, so I leave the deletion or locking decision to the mods. We've had many discussions about this the last few months and there's is nothing to argue about.

The Mods are just doing there job to make this the great place it has become... end of story

nothing wrong with having some kids around as long as they pay up front.

Zippy,

Your comment about a female with "big boobies, who will do anything for a win" was removed because it was in poor taste.

You were responding to a females thread on the subject of girls playing fantasy football.

Now it wasnt a really bad comment, it just didnt belong in that discussion.

Hope you understand the reason behind its removal now. ;-D

I also think it is best to leave it to the mods to decide what gets deleted and locked. They are doing a good job. I am glad they are not like other places where anything remotely bad gets deleted or anything goes. They are doing a good job, IMHO. Let me also say that I have had things deleted that I don't know why. There probably was a reason. Even if you think something that got deleted was fine, they can't be perfect.

I agree that the mods are there for a reason, I have seen some boards that are really rude and crude, and for that reason I haven't returned. I am not all that easily offended, just the way people are sometimes. Take it with a grain of salt. I'm sorry your post was deleted, it didn't offend me, knew that someone would say something to that effect sooner or later. However, it is up to the mods and I think that is what makes this site a good site to come to.
Don't ever underestimate the girls!!
