    Admin warning for deleted post..

    I'm making this public so others can chime in on this one..

    I posted a comment with a well known military acronym and then decided to delete the post after thinking about. Well low and behold my trash(deleted post) was read and I was admonished for it...

    I can go into more detail off line..but now we have to contend with the trash police as well..

    I'm sure you realize that the Moderators have some controls to look at information in a variety of situations, one of them being deleted posts.

    I think in this situation, your initial post was read by one of the moderators and reported as "problematic" to the other moderators and you were contacted about it. In the span of time for that to happen, you then deleted your post. But, then you now know about the first point above.

    If you had deleted it before anyone really noticed it or commented on it, it would have been a non issue.

    Sometimes things happen pretty quick on the forum...it's a changing situation. Sometimes things languish for a long time. I think you're situation fell "just right".

    If you have any issues with this, don't hesitate to contact me via PM.

    I didn't realize that it all happened that quick. There must have been some serious alignment of the stars in this case. I'll look into more details...

    Thanks...

    proper acronyms?

    Can we get a list? I have done the same thing and received my warnings. I have tried to be more careful; but sometimes the things you use on a daily basis become a part of your vernacular and you forget that some PC types might become "offended".

    It's really not as dramatic as it looks..or at least it shouldn't be.

    Probably not. Here on the Forum we have a great group of members and along with that great group, the moderators help keep things running smooth. For the most part when we have a Reported Post we take a look and see what's up and if anything needs to be done. Frequently we have to look at the spirit of the post an if the post has, let's say, an acronym that is coupled with what appears to be a non-helpful, mean spirited, snarky response-especially when a new member is involved- we will frequently send a reminder that in this community, helping is better than snarky. Frequently any of the acronyms with the letter F will be looked at rather close.
    Enjoy the Forum and if you can be a help Gary
