Complaint Thred deleted with no notice to the posters?

  1. Apr 5, 2011 #1
    Yesterday, a new guy was posting some threads in Electrical Engineering one of which was regarding transformers. I got interested in it and had posted a line. The question seemed ununderstandable to me. Is that the reason why it was deleted?
    I don't care if its deleted for some reasons, but I was in view that atleast the posters should be informed so that they don't keep searching it.

    It wasn't a real poster, it was just a spammer.

    I see. I had a feel for it. It (we use 'it' for spammer) was posting too many threads.

    His posts were copies of questions posted on other sites, like eng-tips.com.
