Topic removed. Why?

by clmbr » Sun Jun 10, 2018 7:07 pm

I'm just curious why my Topic titled "To the Rangers and SAR of Mt Shasta" I posted on 4th of June, 2018, in the California section was just completely removed without any explanation?

It may have been accidentally deleted? I posted in the elve's forum asking if anyone knows why it was deleted, but no one who usually moderates the forums seems to know anything about the deletion.

Unless something is spam there is almost no moderation on the forums lately.

Another possible, but unlikely reason might be that it was hacked. Hackers can no longer delete content added to SP, so I guess they could have gone after the forum instead?

Are there anymore missing threads anyone is aware of?

No, but there seems to be endless google ads popping up everywhere now in the forums. Literally 10 to a thread, popping up between posts. I’d rather pay a few bucks every year and not have to see them

I did not delete it, but I checked the moderator logs and found who did. It's not my habit to identify who did what unless I was the one, but maybe that mod will see this post and explain.

Since I never read the post, I have no guesses.

It wasn't me either... but I saw the post. Its reasonable to assume the explanation is that it wasn't the best place to put a communication intended to be directed to those specific individuals... partly as there isn't anything to support that they are even members here. And it is already part of the discussion in other threads. You probably already knew that?

Posts with the same content are still here, just not another entire thread on it. I would not have deleted it... well... I didn't even after seeing it. But it doesn't surprise me and I think it is reasonable to just forget about it.

BTW I was up at Clear Creek trailhead a couple of weeks ago. I am surprised I didn't see you there or on the route!

I had a picture removed of praising the Lord in the snowfields of Aleyeska. I was kneeling with a flag that had a cross and star of David on it.
