Thanks wag. People should check out the disclaimer. This topic has been covered many times since we started back in 1999. There have to be some rules. No one said this forum was a 'democracy'?
But even in a democracy if you libel someone you are liable to be prosecuted. So here, likewise, if you post commercial spam or pronographic material it will be deleted as soon as it's spotted by one of our moderators. Simlarly, if you post hateful spite your post will be deleted -if for no other reason than our moderators don't like spitefulness! This is supposed to be a fun place to be and to post to.
Sometimes other posters replying to Spam, hatemail, porn, libel will also be deleted - caught in the crossfire so to speak. Mainly it's because this is a voluntary effort and time is always a factor - it is simpler to delete threads rather than to painstakingly delete or edit individual posts. If you were checking out the BB at 7am on a Sunday morning you wouldn't be drawing fine conclusions about 'democracy' either
The other aspect of this particular gripe is that the posts had already been archived and it was no longer possible to reply to them anyway as they were not on the 'live' forum - which usually only holds three or four day's worth at most.
