Jesus Christ! Talk about beating a dead horse!
This is one of the best run sites on the Internet. It is also the least moderated of ALL the pipe forums.
What you don't see is all of the efforts behind the scenes to keep this place running in good order, and without spam.
If you don't think it's good enough, then we will give you a full refund and you can post elsewhere.
99% of the time a thread is moderated in any way - 1) a single post removed, 2) thread closed, or 3) thread deleted entirely - a notification is sent to the individual that started the thread or had a post removed. We do not have the resources, nor could this site stay in business if we were to notify every single person that posted in a thread.
It would also crap up the site if we had to post a new thread to explain why another thread was moderated.
The 1% of the time that a notice isn't sent is usually because I am the one that moderated something because I saw it first, and I don't have time to send notices.
There is a sticky thread:
Count 6 down to my post. It has links for sending private messages to the moderators. That might be a better way to ask why a thread was deleted rather than to call them out in public. From here forward, calling out a mod for any of their actions will be the same as calling out me, the owner of this site.
I'm not as nice as the mods.
