    Plum, were you really the one to delete it?

    I am curious for what reason, was it in the wrong section to begin with or was it in the Politics 101? I didn't look that carefully.

    Plum's playing wit cha. I don't see it anywhere so I'll have to check what's up.

    Although a can't speak to this incident, I must admit that I'm often inclined (speaking personally and not representing the mods or web committee) to remove some posts in that area, not because of the topics, but because of the overall "ugly" nature of how the topics are sometimes discussed. On occasion, there's a complete lack of "civility" in responses, i.e., akin to some "sinister mob mentality". Those posts are far to revealing for my comfort.

    Again, this is only my personal opinion with regard to this matter.

    I don't see it either, usually they are saved if removed. The OP could have requested removal and then it might have just been deleted. PM me the title of the thread and the OP.

    I dont remember the OP but the title said something about Obama and the "Socialist" billboard being removed.

    I was the first to reply and simply pasted the picture of the billboard. I checked my old posts and it is gone as well.

    City I understand how outta control these open forums can get if not monitored, and politics being a specifically sensitive topic. Back around election time I was one of the "We are here to talk about vipers not politics" advocates. I just think if there is going to be an open forum or section dedicated to that, then everything should be allowed and a thread should be able to develop before being removed.

    There we go. Why do the posts not show if you do a search by either topic or post?

    Also doesnt show in my search by "Find more posts by 'user name'".
