Hmm, strange, I normally only paste & copy quotes if I have more than 1 quote in 1 post, but this is just 1 quote, so the post I was referring to must have been moved by a moderator. What I don't get, is why my post hasn't been moved together with it. That, or my post has been moved from another thread into this one, but even that doesn't make any sense. ???

I think Dragonslyr just deleted the post you quoted from.  ;D

That's a third possibility. (I'm not used to people deleting none-double posts.)

It's the only possibility, because I didn't move it and neither did Say.  ;D

Also, I've seen a few people delete their own posts before.  It's a little more obvious when you use e-mail notification for threads, because the link takes you to the same lastpost you've already read before.   :)

Hmm. That's one difference between this and phpBB... on phpBB boards you can only delete your post if it hasn't been replied to yet. Once it has been replied to, only a moderator or administrator can delete it.

Yeah, I remember seeing board mods that will disallow users from deleting their own posts, polls, etc.  Personally, I'd rather give the user the choice to delete whatever they posted.  

Btw, does that mean if you double posted on a phpBB somewhere, didn't notice and someone else replies, you cannot delete that second post? :S

Heh, I was actually going to delete copycat's post as soon as I noticed, but I figured this was the off-topic forum so there's no real need to.  That, and I found it kinda funny heheh XD

I understand what you mean about the whole "evidence" issue and such.  However, I'm pretty sure that if someone posts something obnoxious over here, at least one person will quote it and reply (physical evidence) and at least one person will see it and remember (witness).  If someone's really offended, they could click the Report to Moderator link and myself and Say will be notified immediately.  If no one sees the post, and/or no one is offended, then I don't see a problem with the user deleting their own post.  :)

Yup! ;D  

If you're asking if anyone's been banned before, then no.  At least, not since I was made Forum Admin. ;D

I doubt it, you're still here!  XD  Anyway, almost everyone in our forums has said something "offensive" before, it's no big deal.  Or maybe it was a big deal at the time, but obviously nothing too serious.  There's also a difference between having creative differences & different opinions or beliefs, and being extremely rude and purposely obnoxious to people.  

Like I said, we've never had anyone in that second category as of yet.  If a thread or discussion has turned that way, it usually gets locked or even deleted.  For a user to actually get banned, they would have to continuously act in this manner.  After a couple warnings, they're out.  ::)

It's never happened yet, and I hope it doesn't happen in the future, but you never know what kinds of users we may get in the future.  ;D

Nope, I think I just got it once, but it was someone reporting an error with the forum, lol.  :P

we are lucky to have such lovely friends around here, truth is that the offensive and nasty ugly part has come not from fans but from other places, this forum is very nice and friendly ( a bit insane though lol, but its all good ), so yes, I've dealt with pretty nasty crap before just not around these forums, and not with anyone around here.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how good-natured this board is. I've read and posted in a number message boards and newsgroups over the years, and almost all of them had at least a little bit of "ugliness". This one has hardly any. ...OK, so the fact that we rarely debate any "controversial" subjects might have a good deal to do with it, but still. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz
