    This is nothing to do with Bleeds' ban, I think that was justified. There is a problem with posts being deleted lately though, and I've just noticed a few others of mine have recently been deleted. This seems to becoming an issue that will grow into something nasty if not addressed. So can the users and mods get together and arrange something before that happens?

    Which threads have your posts been deleted from? Happy to take a look.

    A few, but I'm not particularly bothered about personal deletion matters. It's more of a running theme now throughout the forum. I've seen shit build like this before and get ugly.

    You're really going to need to be a little more specific Flip,

    Over the last 72 hours,
    I moderated a bunch of stuff in CA yesterday to remove troll comments and the quotes and responses to them, Stret did some post merging in movies and some clean up in the prem, mostly post merging where multiquote could have been used.
    Monty and Hants stuck and unstk some game threads.
    TAFKAP edited something in the terrror acts thread
    Quirk unstuck something once on Sunday and apart from that has done bugger all since last Thursday (lazy arse ;) )

    What theme are you referring to and what 'shit is going to build up and get ugly' ?

    A lot of people have been complaining about post deletion lately. Surely we can see the writing on the wall with that?

    Thing is Flip, otherwise innocent posts will be removed if another post which has been deleted was quoted in them. People probably feel that their innocuous post was deleted for no reason, but if it contained a quote from a deleted post that will be the reason.
