So I'm reading through comments on the Donetsk explosion; and all of a sudden the thread is toast...

Anyone at ATS care to explain? If it was a hoax, it could have been moved... Otherwise, I see no reason to remove the thread entirely...

I'm gonna be pretty frustrated with the administration if it got pulled without explanation...

likely a re-post or something close enough to be one. Never know though. Depends on the mod and his mood most days imho

Nobody indicated that it was a re-post; and I don't see anything about it in the feed...

Also; note the following google results: "donetsk site:abovetopsecret.com"

...

It no longer exists, there's no duplicate, and I want to know why.

I think it was because there were no proof and not one credible link was added.


I will still keep my eye open on this subject something still seems off.

Not to mention that a mods 'mood' should have nothing to do with a thread getting deleted. It's a mods responsibility to follow guidelines better than anyone - and I doubt that any mod's guidelines allow removal of a thread without a warrant...

The link was GLP and that is a no-no.

Well I'm going to re-post it if it doesn't show up in the next 5 minutes; I call a crock of sh* on it getting removed. Credible links or not - toss it in the hoax bin; don't delete the post...

And the 'proof' was in the two separate videos - nuke or not; there was a massive explosion that was up for discussion, and now the discussion is gone.

The OP put in a link to a competitor. I think that is why it was wiped out.

I put up a new thread without the offending link

I call BS... I don't know or care what a 'GLP' is ( I assume a 'hoax bin new site' ) - the explosion happened. Linked to a bad source or not.

Just don't use GLP as your source.

Thank you for that; my hats off...

And a big @)$(* you to whoever removed it. Mods can edit a post and drop an offending link if they're so inclined - I call childish reaction.






No need for the hate, we all agree to the rules when we signed up.

Why does the source matter? News is news - and obviously; people are coming here first. If they get linked out, it's still pretty likely that the resulting comments are going to end up here... I see no truly legitimate reason to restrict outside links, at all.

"They're stealing our monies" - But not really...

Not hate; just rage... I don't understand why it couldn't have just been edited and let go.

Now there's a ton of information from user feedback that is just vapor... That helps Nobody.

Are we a news collaboration site? Or are we a money machine?

Because it is our board and their eraser.

They have every right to not want certain websites linked, and you agreed you would follow the rules.

Seems legit... Let's delete some important news because we're worried about our income stream. Gah - infuriating.

Someone better delete this rather than move it to the rant bin - I might create a poor sentiment.

15d.) Cross-Posting: You will not cross-post content from other discussion boards (unless you receive advance written permission from TAN or their agents). You will not post-by-proxy the material of banned members or other individuals who are not members, but have written a response to content within a thread on these forums.

You broke the rules and they did what they do to all threads that do so.

Has nothing to do with money but rather a line in the sand they don't let anyone cross.

It's a board, don't waste your energy on something like this. We've all had stuff removed, its not the end of things nor a personal affront. just the rules.

Maybe redo it without quoting GLP. Or don't.

Precisely, we're on a planet with 7 continents and many people, a forum is not everything imo.
