Why Was That Deleted?
July 6, 2002 | happytobealive

Posted on 07/06/2002 3:32:36 PM PDT by happytobealive

Re: Men vs. Women post of a few minutes ago.

This was generating a huge response, which seems to indicate that it was an important topic.

Why isn't the reasoning for deletions made clear so that we know the ground rules better and can try and persuade the moderators when they seem to error?

You are making a mistake..

Don't post a thread asking why another was deleted..

(believe me, I know of what I speak)

I am also curious. It was a sincere thread asking men to try to be civil to the women on this forum with links to document that there are several threads that attack women.

There is a current thread today that is discussing the evils of women. When a woman posts, she is attacked.

Perhaps it's FR policy that the woman bashing threads stay, and the threads asking to have a little respect can last no more than 2 minutes.

It's mindboggling. I thought it was an important topic to show exactly what is happening of FR.

The delete moderator is back from vacation, apparently.

Several threads have been deleted today.

I was going to run out to the concession stand but I don't want to miss the main event.

(plus the cashier out there looks faggy and keeps staring at my butt)

Kind like the Dubya lovefest threads?

:)

(Honestly, it's a forum for discussion.. I don't think disagreement necessarily equals "attack" Now promise not to key my car over this post.)

I don't think I'm whining -- it was not my post, I was just learning from it.

This is all new to me, I've only been contributing for a couple of days. It seemed like a logical question.

If it's really troubling you then you can email Mr. Robinson personally. His address is on the front page.

He won't necessarily agree with you but at least you will know why a particular thread was pulled.

I do know that he has asked in the past not to post a thread to complain about a thread being pulled. (which I have done.. idiot that I am..)

That's not true and you know it. 95% of the posters on that thread are in agreement. The other five percent (and there are men among them) are being challenged. There is not a shred of misogyny on that thread, but I sure saw a lot of male bashing .

If you want to know why a thread was deleted, then freepmail the moderators rather than start another thread. I've pinged them into this one to see if we can get your question answered...

Sorry about being a butthead

I'll seen these type posts lot's of times. Normally they are just have their panties in a knot because getting a thread pulled is sort of a slap on the wrist.

Some people actually think the first amendment applies here

Welcome aboard.

That thread discusses the evils of a corrupt, immoral and unconstitutional domestic court system. I say again: It does not bash women.

It wasn't all that important to me, but I really think that moderators ought to e-mail the poster whose post got deleted to explain why. Mine was simply a post defending myself against some other apparently angry freeper. The moderator took the liberty of deleting both my reply and the offensive post.

In other words, hide rather than have the courage to state your questions openly? Very nice.

It's more that this can be handled via freepmail rather than having a vanity thread started to clutter up the works. What if everyone who had a thread or comment deleted started their own thread to complain?

You're a male, just like me, so you might as well just admit that you don't know what you're talking about, no matter what kind of experience you have had.

How many times have you read of people asking for answers via Freepmail and never receiving so much as a, "Beat it."? If this is what it takes to get an answer, good, then let them do it and let us all see why is was removed.

Misogyny is defined as "hatred of women." I don't see any hatred of women over there. I do see a lot of folks that are tired of women's attitudes and actions.

Of course, if you want to consider that misogyny, then you also need to admit that there is quite a bit of misandry going on there as well.

It's very clear that though some men are genetically male, they have no clue what it means to be a man.

Trust us, it is better to ask the moderators instead of the "I'll show you" all in one complaint thread.
