I had a mod remove a post in a thread I am very involved in. At the time I was very angry about it and then I sat down and thought about it for a few.
I was not any less irritated, but I was much more understanding about it. Technically, I had deserved to have the post removed. I knew it, and I
didn't complain about it.
Next time I had a post removed, as soon as I posted it and a couple of others, I tried to go back and delete because I knew it was off topic and
deserved to be removed. A mod beat me to it and took it down, but I sent a quick pm apologizing for going off topic and then I beat the mod to my
other off topic posts and took them down myself. The mod was VERY understanding and appreciative that I took action on myself.
Bottom line is, it is best to be well and truly versed in the T&C and understand that while mistakes do happen on both our parts and on the parts of
the mods, usually they are very right for removing posts, whether we like it or not. When they make a mistake, if you just alert on it, it is reviewed
and if it is then determined to be a mistake, the problem will be corrected.
These mods are volunteers who give of their time out of their love for this forum and yes, for US. I appreciate all they do and hope that those who
have posts removed do some introspection about said posts.
