I, too have had the same situation, and I really thought that the thread that I had posted was legit. It too was about Barack, and there were some posters that were getting, let's say, "Frustrated", but nothing that was a deliberate attack or out right profanity.
What gives with that ?
You should at least give the true cause of the retraction of such threads with a direct cause of it being closed.
I know you MOD's send the acknowledgement of it being taken off of the forum's but without any exact reason, just the guide lines and infractions rules.
What do you say "The Vagabond?"
