Front Loaders WSJ Discussion Censored
It seems that the post titled "front loaders dirty little secret" has been deleted from this forum.
I know it got a bit political, but censorship is just WRONG!
You can search for the topic here, in the laundry forum, but the page itself has been removed.
So, I googled it, and only a partial cache exists.
So, I then googled "Garden Web Censorship" and this appears to be a common problem.
Apparently, there is a "Hot Topics" forum for political discussion. OK, fine: If that is the case, then why doesn't the moderator just transfer the entire thread over to the Hot Topics forum instead of deleting it completely? Most other forums DO transfer misplaced threads to the proper section instead of blindly deleting them altogether. Then again, most other forums have decent search features.
I hate that you cannot even click on your own name to find posts you have responded to in the past - most other forums allow this. Unless you save every single thread you have interest in on Garden Web, good luck finding info you need! This really sucks on the Kitchens Forum, when people reference other people's kitchens, and it is impossible to search for the original post unless you know the exact title it was submitted as in the first place.
