I'd just like to say that I think it's nice to have a system that keeps an active community in check when things get exciting.

I'm happy for be corrected, edited, even censored if I make a mistake. Anonymous, summary, unexplained erasure, on the other hand, is not an acceptable way to handle discourse.

It would be informative to post a comment explaining that there have been some unacceptable trends in a thread or that you'd prefer not to hear about a particular angle or slant to a topic.

When you delete, delete, delete without explanation, it contradicts the welcoming atmosphere that was supposed to be different from "the other sites." Even an automated PM would be fine.

I don't feel unfairly targeted and I'd rather have a comment I made removed than cause undue offence. It just feels odd to see a forum marked as active 24 minutes ago and then discover the last comment is from 9 hours ago, meaning I'm probably not the only one who got sent to the naughty corner... and left to guess what I did wrong because the mods aren't talking. :(

Please moderate like we're all just trying to get along, enjoying our BlackBerry devices in each our own way. Maybe you could post a policy on how you'll be handling disreputable behaviour?

What was deleted? DL always consults with Robert and I before anything is deleted. Except Spam of course. Wondering what and who?

It's been some time since we've needed to delete something. And when we have, we've made it a point to provide explanation. Publicly more often than not.

Oh man! I think I might plant my face into a pie. Hopefully the content of this thread was general enough to be useful going forward.

I think there was a technical issue with my browser or something because when I tried reading the thread in "General Discussion > Thoughts on DTEK50", I was being sent to the first page only. I thought I was clicking the "last post" button so I just assumed it had been snippity-snipped. It seems to be working now and I can view all the posts.

Sorry and thanks for confirming that UTB is the #1 site for BlackBerry fans (and sensitive forum lurkers who might be concerned about negative responses).

Whew! I was scared! I've accidently deleted channel posts before. Was afraid I somehow did it here too. Lol

Sweet, because I checked Moderator Logs and couldn't find anything.
Glad you got it worked out.  Cool

Well, it looks that was cleared up! It also reinforces my opinion that this is the best site period. It also happens to ne a BlackBerry site. :D
