Complaint Why was my post deleted?

  1. Jul 30, 2010 #1
    I recently posted in Russ's thread about the US military attack video released on Wikileaks. Within minutes of posting it was deleted and I received an infraction from Evo for "off topic/trolling" with no further explanation. Russ claimed that people hold a double standard for the US military and the insurgents and I simply stated that the situation is not symmetrical since the US invaded Iraq and not vice versa. I replied to Evo asking her to explain in what way the post was off topic or irrelevant and did not receive a reply.

    As far as I can tell, the decision was a knee-jerk reaction to something which Evo found offensive (especially since it was deleted so quickly). The justification of "off topic/trolling" is so flimsy I really want a better answer.

    If you want a more detailed explanation, you should PM Evo about it. We don't discuss specifics of moderation decisions in the public forums.

    Your post was about the 9/11 attack and had nothing to do with the topic.
