Yes mate i see my post has been removed. No explanation. I only posted it to see what people did for a living on here.

Check my email and i got almost 90 emails from this site telling me i had get a reply to the post!!!!!

i for one thought it made interesting reading. perhaps FE would like to offer an explanation either here or in a private note to you

  igk 12:52 09 Sep 2005

I see that other threads are currently in excess of 100 replies so perhaps with so many technically qualified people around there may have been just a tiny touch of jealosy!!!

Yes but it was hardly PC related. It was interesting while it Ran. But remember we have just got this site working something like and do not want it snarled up with basically chat room stuff. FE did well to let it run so long

Boo woodchip lol

Or it could be a "Power Thing"!!!

I agree with woodchip, hardly relevant to this Forum. I could start a new post asking where everyone went on their holiday, what has that got to do with PCs? and why would I want to know.

I don't care where you live, how old you are, what you do for a living, what you spend your money on, as long as you can offer help to someone who needs it then that is what this Forum is all about.

If I can offer, I will. If I need help then I ask.

What I don't understand is why I can't find it in Speakers Corner? Is it there, and I'm missing it when I look? I assumed the post had been moved there, rather than completely deleted? Maybe that post wasn't appropriate in the Helproom forum because it wasn't a technical question, but it wasn't posted here out of bloody-mindedness, just people being real people.

I did state that the post was more suited to Speakers Corner and I expected the FE to move it there.

Was suprised 1. to see it get over a hundred postings and 2. to see it deleted rather than moved.

Did make interesting reading though.

Doire_Bhoy I think you probably also win this weeks prize for posting the largest number of threads.

There's not much tolerance of off-topic posts here, I'm afraid. Which in some ways is a good thing, though I do miss the old off-topic board.

I agree with woodchip too. This is a helproom for people with pc problems. Any irrelavent topics only serve to slow down the system and we`ve had enough of that lately.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
