I submitted a new thread this morning, and checking back, it seems to be deleted.

Why?

Was it politics related?

If it was then I don't think they like that. grin

I'd sooner suspect post server-resuscitation gremlins in the wake of the storm-caused power outtages.

I'd directly ask Craig and Reif in a multi-recipient PM for the quickest answers (if any answers are known), possibly with a link to this thread. They may or may not notice this post.

Did the forum not send you a PM about it, Whitefang?

Long story short, the post was about the election and voting. With the election still fresh, half the people wanting to gloat and the other half wanting to vent, it's best to refrain from anything even remotely political.

Sorry you didn't get the PM.

A String, good idea. Let's just say that I'm not exactly thrilled with some elction results, and I like seeing this website as a place I can go to get away from political arguements. Although I do have another couple websites where I frequently engage in some rather heated discussions. Those discussions are much better over there than over here.

Don't get me wrong. In WF's defense, his post wasn't crossing a line. I just think it prudent to be extra careful with the politics right now.

Yeah, I agree. Music tends to bring us together. Politics tends to drive us apart.

The thread in question WASN'T about the RESULTS per se, but rather the COVERAGE of them. But if the administrators feared it might have been misconstrued by others, then I guess I can somewhat understand their action.

But in the future, I appeal to the administrators to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

For some reason, this reminded me of something an uncle of mine quipped years ago...

"Politics would be more fun without all them politicians!"

As long as we're not talking about politics and religion, I'd just like to say Thank God those stupid ads are off the air now...

And I take it now my phone will stop ringing 6 to 10 times a day with callers who never leave a message.
Yes, very glad to get all this behind us.
