    Please can you tell me why my " Is the forum censored in any way please? post was pulled?
    Is it simply because it had run its course or perhaps it had meandered into an Ox Bow Lake.
    Suggestion- How about the powers that be finalising a post with the reasons why.

    Threads get stopped when people get started.

    Some posters are confrontational for the sake of it so some threads get a bit heated, and that is not what this site is about. I would suggest you would get the answer you need rather than stirring things by asking Jim in a PM, he will give you a straight answer, no problem at all.
    By the way the chat room is for chatting, the clue is in the title; to come in and ignore someone, (me) who says hi to you then sit there for a while before leaving without saying a word could be seen as some to be very rude. Remind me to ignore you sometime.

    I am sure that he was not being intentionally rude Roger. To some that have never been in the chat room before it can be difficult to know what to do. Sometimes newbies just enter to have a look with no intention of speaking to anyone and then leave.

    A term like "Remind me to ignore you sometime" is probably not the way to get them to return to your lair for a chat:Smile:

    You may smile, Pappajohn, but many years ago I employed a bunch of programmers who worked in a room with only overhead natural light.
    I read somewhere that sunlight, even artificial, on the back of the neck was a "good" thing, so I bought and installed the lamp for them but I didn't tell them why - didn't want the micky taken if it was a hoax.
    Production increased and the mood improved quite a bit. Really:Eeek:

    Some people seem to take a huge runnnnnnning jump towards the fence of wrong conclusion, and proceed to snag their underparts on the barbed wire of reason at the top.
    I did not know you (Wildman) had "said" anything to me. I do agree with you though, that some posters are confrontational for the sake of it.


    I don't know how to speak directly to a person, and I'm not sure what a PM is but just as soon as I click "submit reply" it'll dawn on me.

    In fact half the time I don't even know what some respondents are talking about.
    I asked a question "stirring things"??? What's that all about?
    I came on here for advice.
    I picked this sub-forum bEcause it says this in the heading:
    "Chat here about anything as long as it is MH related and doesn't fit easily into any other section"

    Obviously I need some lessons in netiquette. Yes Jim wise words right down to your last sentence and beyond.

    Blimey! I thought quantum mechanics was complicated. Teach me the WAYS OF CHAT so I don't offend anyone else.
    Serious Question. Am I allowed to re-post when a thread gets hijacked.

    hi calculad,
    easiest way to send a pm is LEFT click on the posters screen name(left of post above avater) and select 'send a private message to XXXXX' from the drop-down list.

    that'll take you to the pm text page.

    by no means am i suggesting you would, but please be aware though.....pm's can be reported the same as unsuitable/insulting/obscene posts.


    nothing to stop you re-posting a thread but it gets confusing when there are two threads by the same person, with the same header, regarding the same subject.

    the second thread will probably be hi-jacked just as the first was....its just the way the forum works unfortunately.

    Probably!:Doh:

    Wait for your moment to strike, it takes a lot longer to get an idiotic post to have a go at than on the DARK SIDE! :Rofl1:

    Enjoy, and strike when the time is right! :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    There's a new line for you - half priced SAD lights. Absolute rip off. I think they must emit backward spinning heavy photons. Good phrase that, up the price.

    Whyever not as long as it wasn't you causing the boss concern.

    You were unlucky with that one, you never realised what mentioning censorship and being thrown off forums was going to trigger.

    And if we go off at a tangent you'll just have put up with us and keep asking. Sometimes tangent is good. Like the guy who asked how to set off a pepper bomb and was rewarded with lots of good reasons not to.

    Sometimes you may get a crap joke, especially from me, but it's FUN not The Open University of Motorhomes.
