    censorship

    Just out of curiosity who has the power at the board to delete a new thread. Yhe reason why I ask is that I started a new thread under the title question for the board and it was actually quite tame and I was getting no responses from you guys out there in cyber world, so I though that I would check into it, but to my amazement what my thread said was POST REMOVED BY REQUEST OF THREAD STARTER.

    Im here to tell you folks that i didnt delete the thread so there is a Nazi deleter out there. So the question is can anyone delete a thread and if so why type anything on the board. Thanks guys

    Some would have others believe that the deletion of posts is a new thing, but in fact its always been going on. Fred has always had rules that he expects posters to abide by, if you break the rule he`ll delete your thread/post. I would assume you broke a rule.

    I would like to see Fred post a series of rules on the board he expects us to live by. If you break one he can just say broke rule #2 thread deleted. Or something similiar.

    dittman go to the source if your wondering about deleted threads. That would be Fred < info@perb.cc > only he can help you with the question you ask. The rest of us can only speculate about your missing post.

    Rude and demeaning.

    Kev was very rude and demeaning to me. He called me "newschool" What did I ever do to him? I am still offended.

    if iw was fred i dont think it would say that i was the one that deleted my own thread he would come out and say that i broke some rule, and also i was not engaging in any bashing.

    basically what it was, was about alexa taylor, and how when you make an appointment with her via e-mail she request all kinds of personal information. What i was asking the board was how much personal info are you as a hobbiest willing to give up to a provider in order to get laid. Pretty innoculous actually and then poof its gone.

    Ok before you go public in future if your post has been edited check with the Mod first to see what happened. We got an email from someone via " The Report to Mod " function asking us to delete that thread.
    That person said he was you. Unfortunately I deleted the emails shortly thereafter
    ( altogether I got 3 ).

    Evidently this was some prank initiated by someone here.
    Next time he tries to pull something off like this I will make sure that he's kicked off the site for good.

    I am not sure I understand. My point is that had I not deleted the emails I would have picked up the sender's IP from the email.
    By comparing that IP with the IPs on this board, I would most likely have been able to determine the sender's board username..

    Anyway I found one of the emails in my deleted mail folder and I now know the person who sent the request - I will have a word with him.

    Definitely not a female. The member has 100+ posts to his name. Perhaps I misunderstood his instructions - he probably wanted to have his one post edited & not the entire thread removed. As his posting record shows him to be a good member I will consider this a misunderstanding
    on my part so we can all move on.

    p/s: ok I will restore the 24hr editing/deleting window for all.
    But guys plz don't flame other members and then delete the
    offending posts quickly before the mod has seen it !
