All topics started by xveganx in the animal concerns section have been deleted.
I am just interested and I am sure other members are also since posts and topics are"going missing" on this forum on a regular basis. If this is the case then I myself feel it is a form of censorship.
What would deleting whole topics achieve?
Unless there is a specific reference I cannot give you an answer. I do not remember any threads of that poster being deleted, but as I said there was a global deletion used on that one day. I cannot speak for Josh or anyone else at this point as I have not discussed it with them, but in the past week one thread was merged with another, and three posts were deleted, one was due to an off-topic picture, one was a violation of the spam rules, and one was a violation of the copyright rules. All were noted in a post relating to the issue and all should have been marked with an Admin notice. There have been others that have been adjusted or given a "by" with a note for future reference, but they had not been from posters with prior warnings.
In any case, I do not see this series of general questions being very supportive for the idea of not following through with the banning of anyone from that location. That is only my opinion and you may think otherwise, but you have a history to overcome and this seems to be leading to a similar start as some of the other posters there.
So now I am a troll for asking questions.
Where were you called a troll? That is part of the reason for my comment. It appears to me that you have issues in general and that aspect it coming across in your posts.
What similar start?
The accusatory tone with the generalizations which cannot be answered because they are so general. It seems like you are setting it up to be a problem and a welcome problem. That is the impression I am getting. I do not know if Josh will see it the same way or not, but if so it would not promote your case, IMO.
Are members not allowed to question?
No, but there is a difference in asking a question and working for an answer and you do not seem to be wanting an answer, but only to be able to question.
Am I not allowed to voice my opinion to another member who has a history also?
You are, but when trying to overcome a history one would not expect to place any emphasis on history, but that is just my opinion.
I was polite but blunt, what is wrong with that?
Nothing, but it brings about the question concerning what was wrong with my replies in the same vein?
