What happened to my post???
 
I posted a thread yesterday titled "I witnessed a bicycle theft today" in the road cycling forum. I checked the thread last night at around 2am and it had 3 pages of replies. Now the thread is gone. Was this post deleted by one of the mods? If so, why?

I suppose it got too far off topic. Too bad, it was interesting.

You're a racist just for asking that....

And here's another thread heading for imminent deletion...

Original thread by the OP was a good one, shame it got jacked.

i didn't realize posts had to be "on topic" in this forum... but i guess it depends on who you are.

pcad can post about his dog all day, or someone else starts a thread about cars, and those don't get moved/axed?! mods??

It was bringing out the trolls and the last straw was a racist slur/name drop made by a forum member.

It was "off-topic" from the OP Re: Bike theft.

I actually witnessed that thread get stolen by a group of 6-7 kids. They were acting suspicious and then all of a sudden, one of them grabbed the thread and ran. :innocent:

Well, what did they look like.

I dont know, but I remember they were wearing flip flops.

kudude 08-12-08 04:56 PM

can someone recount the original story?

Iwannagofast 08-12-08 05:31 PM

Guy saw a bike get stolen, reported it, certain people got fussy over him being specific of the minority, no racism intended. End of story. :D

Yup. Once the actual racists came out, that thread was pretty much sunk.

It evolved into a cesspool and was removed. Lets try not to rehash it, it was ugly.

And how could anyone miss the quacking?

LostitoaBianchi 08-12-08 05:40 PM

Yes, certainly we can say the thread was " jacked" but realistically its more like " tyroned "

hint: flip-flops (the previous mention of)

heckler 08-12-08 08:28 PM

clearly reporting "do-gooder" actions will not be permitted on this forums. complaining is the only way to keep threading going...


notice how your thread complaing about the deletion of the previous thred is still going?

ShadowGray 08-12-08 08:29 PM

Are you sure it just hasn't dropped to page 3..

ehidle 08-12-08 08:33 PM

This place is too funny...

Moderation cannot make conversations unhappen.

KirkeIsWaiting 08-12-08 08:39 PM

So the black children were riding Cervelos to the beach in flip flops and bikinis?
Where they white flip flops, with white bar tape and saddle?
what's the problem?

Indeed. Though I would hesitate to call it 'moderation'.

KiddSisko 08-12-08 10:54 PM

Here's the bikini clad, flip-flop wearing, Cervelo riding theft ringleader.

jfa_16 08-13-08 02:23 AM

I don't see any hotties in bikinis on Cervelos cruising around Pittsburgh....
