    Guess there is a first time for everything. I had started a post entilted, "Unite Behind hussein,,,,NEVER". I had placed it in the political thread category. All the posts were deleted after a few days and several posts. According to the "Rules of the Discussion Web" in which I read this, "Additionally, by registering for this site, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-explicit, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in bad taste in an open public forum." I did not think that I violated this or any other parameters, so I am a little stupified. ( I know, some think I am there a lot)

    I have never had a post or thread deleted before and was trying to find out what may have caused this, so if I did make a mistake, not to repeat it. Does anyone know how to contact David? I sent an email to help@trapshooters.com and have not heard anything, so if you know another way to contact David or the moderator, if they are a different person, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    It also says they have the right to delete posts or thread without warning or justification. Don't worry about it, it doesn't reflect on you, your character, and typically not on your conduct on the website. Not a big deal, it happens.

    I have no problem with them doing it, I just don't to repeat a mistake, if I made one.

    From what I understand, it was not you or your original post, but some other response to it. You're fine - no worry.

    As I recall from the thread, you weren't involved in the later posts, which would have been the problem, so don't sweat it.

    thanks. I value this site and the fine conversations we get into and just didn't want to jeopardize my standing. Jim

    Jim, One of the Moderators or David would send you a warning. Bill Malcolm

    Trappy probably had it deleted so he wouldn't have to answer the question directed to him.......
