    Yeah who did it and why? I don't think I'm asking to much for a reason why it was deleted. I thought a year ago that if a thread was to be deleted that a email and or reason was to be given. I guess they think they don't have to now.

    Why on earth would anyone expect a moderator to owe an explanation for a deleted thread on a private website?

    A year ago they said that they would. I see that their word is worthless.

    "A year ago they said that they would. I see that their word is worthless."

    First of all if you wish to know why write an email or send a PM to where it needs to go. Then ask if you wish an answer to a question you ask you don't demand an answer.

    It seem to me that the quote above is a accusation that the Moderators or owner are lying to everyone.

    "Who is the moderator that deleted my Lee and Stonewall Jackson Day thread? Why was it deleted?"

    In this one I am reading more of a demand than a question.

    " BRGII, Thats not the first thread on Lee and Jackson. That is the second one."

    If the first had been deleted why would you start a second. If it was not deleted when you stated a second the same question applies Why start another.

    Bob you have always been mindless. Have we now gotten to a point where we can't ask questions? Are we now suppose to just coward in the corner in fear? They just deleted the thread without an email or a reason. To me that like me walking up to someone and for no reason slapping them in the face. No reason given just did it. A thread is deleted a reason should be given and the moderator ID himself. They put themselves on a higher standards then the posters then they should ID themselves.

    Hydra- First, you demanded to know why the moderators deleted a thread and then you indicated that the moderators should be identified, but you failed to identify yourself.

    "Bob you have always been mindless. Have we now gotten to a point where we can't ask questions?"

    I will tell you this much when you come here ranting about who and why a thread was deleted I am not so sure who the mindless are. If you don't like me that is your problem not mine.

    "To me that like me walking up to someone and for no reason slapping them in the face. No reason given just did it."

    Your comparison is lacking in one fundamental difference. What has happened to you is the same as walking on to someone else's property and acting like an idiot(which you are proving right now) and being told to leave. You would probably ask why. Get it through your thick head It doesn't matter why it is not your decision to make.

    You or no one else come on my property and demands to know why I did something with my possessions. If you continue act like a spoiled child you just might get yourself an invitation to leave permanently. The decision is your personally I won't miss you.

    There are enough rule and guidelines post on this site that even you should be able to figure it out.

    BTW you didn't answer the question. Why did you have 2 threads about the same thing going at the same time? Some here might like to know why you were wasting available posting space by posting the same subject thread.

    MIA, look who's calling the kettle black.

    Pat I know your one of the moderators. I know of a few others. If they want to be a mod then they should ID themselves. As a poster its up to them to decide if or when they give out their name. I'm not an offical, you and they are.

    Bob have you yet to pick up a shotgun and shoot trap? When was the last time you did? Years or centenaries?

    Hydra, just a piece of friendly advice . Let it go, for your benefit you will not win.If you have no respect for the Mods that do not post their names keep it to yourself. There are a few mods that do disclose their info and they are real Gentlemen. We are not all the same and neither are they. You can't expect people to live up to your expectations. If you do you'll just be disappointed. Like arguing with the boss, the boss always has the last word. Bulge
