Just out of curiosity, was your posting "off topic?" I too had a post deleted from that thread earlier this afternoon, and mine was off topic. Even apologized for it being so. Guess the powers that be really want to keep that thread on track, and to their credit, they are doing a good job of doing so.
Yes, due to the multiple requests by us and yet still members are posting OT we're deleting them with no warning or comment. There have been too many and we understand people have varying capacities for patience so we aren't going to fault them by issuing infractions.
So if you post gets deleted please just leave it at that and move forward. We're sorry but threads that get as huge as these "discussion" threads get become essentially useless to read from the beginning or tough to locate useful information.
