  • What happened to the " I can't afford it.." thread?

    Was it deleted the author, taken down by the admin or locked and became invisible?
    Just curious.

    It was not option 1. I also woke up to comment notifications and no thread. It seemed like it was getting heated so I would assume an admin stepped in. I hate that the thread turned that way. We have a lot of passionate people in this group and passion sometimes comes through as emotion and when emotion comes through a keyboard, its tough to truly understand the extent of it. Hoping this topic dies down I guess as I never meant to start a fight, I was just excited to own cuttings for about 45 minutes lol.

    Its the weekend, everyone enjoy it!

          Wow I was wondering the same thing. Where did it go? When threads get deleted it sometimes looks like a cover up. I hope that isn't the case here..hmmmm

            I think the PM function is perfect for amicably arguing points with other members. Some user posts can create an atmosphere that dissuades others from wanting to participate in any discussion on the forum. I've seen other forums die because of constant negativity, so a well-moderated, friendly forum is a bonus in my book.

              Brian, anyone that was subscribed to the post can click on subscriptions and if you were subscribed it shows that it was deleted by an admin and that it gives a reason of it being an argumentative post against the tos of the site and lists who deleted it. Definitely not a cover up. I think passions came out and I agree the we don't really need to be attacking each other on any side. Friday nights get a little crazy I guess

                Brian,

                I am rather surprised you would say that. The overriding consideration of managing this forum is fairness. If a friend of mine does something wrong or if it is a person I don't even know they will be treated the same, period. You have my word on that. That said I did not delete the thread, it was gone when I woke up this morning. If it had been me I would not have deleted it but instead removed the personal insults. I started to edit out the offending comments with the thought of putting it back up but it really served no purpose. There are NO secrets here, anyone that wants to see a transcript of it is free to PM me and ask for it.

                  How do you have cover ups with figs? Sometimes I feel like some really good stuff goes right over my head. This is why I don't win the trivia questions

                  I thought I was the only one with memory issues. Remind me what I thought I forgot. What was the trivia question?

                  The real truth is that someone in the thread revealed the details of the CIA's new secret weapon in a threat against another member and the NSA threatened Wills with disappearing without a trace if he left it up. So it really was a cover-up.

                  Now if you ask Wills for the transcript you'll notice that the 2 members involved disappeared without a trace. They're not in the thread, there's no record of them ever being members and none of us can remember who they were. Solid proof of a cover-up, wouldn't you say?

                        Does anyone foil the walls of their houses too? That keeps them from listening in.
