I look at this way, folks:
When I'm wrong or say something silly, it is my own fault, and deleting it would only make me look worse.
My deleted posts on this forum are simple censorship, and nothing more.
After another forum spun my words around to suit the "moderator's" personal agenda, I'll settle for that.
Cotten- mebbe they figured you were "horsing"
Many years ago, The Horse claimed that nasty messages were coming from my computer.
It was impossible
, but a boasting engineer
wanted me off of there for promoting the use of torqueplates inspite of his declaration that they were harmfull. (Seriously!)
There is no guarantee of Freedom, nor Justice in the cyberworld.
My reference above was to a vintage forum where a moderator
began harrassing my pedantic posts with childish replies like "ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz", and then invaded my posts to alter them to make me look like a moron, AND SIGNED HIS NAME!
The owner of the forum (who invited me to join) showed no respect for the 1st Amendment (or those who have given life and limb to preserve it), even though he is an American publisher who could only survive under its protection.
So I picked up my toys and went home.
I've been barred from another but I forget which.
When "Hawg Ryder" told me I was "shitting in his house" (I believe I debunked a 'barroom legend" that hurt some biker's tender feelings), I left the pigs to wrestle in the mud by themselves.
Please let me know if my information is deemed of no value, as I can abandon this one as well.

PS: This is the only forum where I have been threatened with violence (prior to our current moderation, of course.)
