Default Posts Getting Deleted

I was wondering why some of my posts (usually the one's that may not agree with the other's in the discussion) seem to get magically deleted? The post has broken no rule, but it seems like every time I make a educated, well thought out reply to a topic, that within a few hours there is no record of it? I was under the assumption that any mods here would only mod a topic, remove it, etc for the good of WI, but it looks to me that if I don't happen to agree with a mods opinion on something, they just delete my reply. It has happened to me more than once, too many times to be a fluke.

I have been a fan of WI for a long time, but if every 5th post I make gets deleted for no reason, just because a mod may personally not agree with me, I think that is uncalled for censorship. WI had every right to run it's site as they want to, but I think admins and founders should be aware that I don't think all the mods act in the best interest of the site, but instead act on a personal level. I am professional who run dozens of websites for a living, and if any of my staff every brought personal feelings to the board room floor, we would have issues. I'm sure this post will also get magically deleted as well.

I just hope Justin or some of the other admins see this beforehand. I won't name names and I won't stop coming here as I love the people and enjoy answering questions and helping out, I just think it's a shame that all views and opinions are not welcome if they are under the rules and guidelines of the site.

Hm that is weird. I haven't been here long but I would think that you would be able to voice your thoughts as long as they don't break the rules IMHO.

I had thought of that as well, and that is another issue in itself. People seem to "report" a post if they don't agree with it, and if the system is set up to remove a post after "X" amout of "reports' without someone looking at it, you end up with a every one sided thread.

For example if 10 people post they love the estore and then 2 people say the hate it, and those 10 people who love it all report the 2 that hate it and the system then pulls the thread, that is a problem with the software.

It's just odd that it's only times when I post a opinion and only in certain sections

That is the way it used to be and why I liked it here at WI as opposed to the other Kinz sites becuase there was a great group of avid fans and collectors here, but the last few months it seems like that may no longer be the case.

Yeah, I don't think that's a very fair reporting method. But, that's okay I guess. I don't want to get involved.
