Where did ricardog's posts go?

Were they removed by admin? Was he a troll? I can see where he was a bit inflamatory, but then so is throwing gasoline on a bonfire. He must have really pressed somebody's button.

Unfortunately some people just love to complain. When the moderator(s) receives a complaint, the threads/post magically disappear - right, wrong or indifferent.

Well, he was just a troublemaker anyway, regardless of how funny he was. I forget who was so funny in their responses...it really was quite entertaining.

He sure seemed like a troll, yet he said he was a long time lurker............
The threads lasted long enough that he could have chimed back but he never did. It was funny but eventually it would have turned ugly I think.

I think he was just bored (three sheets to the wind?) that night and decided to stir things up. Hope no one took offence, as I doubt he was serious.

He wasn't a long time lurker, he just joined in September. He posted on a lot of forums, and his posts were pretty nasty on all of them. If he had anything useful to offer, it clearly got lost in the flames.

On some other boards I belong to, the admins will ban a user, lock the topic, but its rare to see threads disappear. When you can follow a objectionable thread from a banned user, you at least get to see the why's and wherefor's of the shunning.

I posted some pictures of my cat and they magically disappeared. How does someone complain to the moderator?

Od, go to the very bottom of the discussions page, there is a link to Letters and Comments and you can email the moderator that way.

I don't think your pics can magically disappear; try reloading the page, on some computers it's called refresh page ; or quit and start again so you can see your pictures. On my browser, I click on View, and there is an option to reload the page. Sometimes, there is a delay before pics start loading in a thread.

I think they are cracking down. In the Buying and Selling a House forum, a post that was nasty (but not any worse than others I have seen) disappeared along with the responses to the post telling the guy to lighten up.
