Just before I left work, I refreshed my screen and didn't see the thread I had started, and just thought it got moved down a bit. Wanting to get home, I shut down my computer for the evening and left and would check when I get home.
Now I get home to find that either a MODERATOR and/or Administrator deleted more-or-less a harmless "parody" thread that I started, probably out of a "knee-jerk" reaction to the title alone labeled, "Read this...or risk being banned!", without reading what I had posted inside...which was harmless, in and of itself...a GOTCHA thread if you will.
I could understand closing the thread I started about Pickup Lines and/or deleting a couple of reply's...as I could see the viewpoint that it could get ugly, even though I did request that peeps keep it clean in the one thread.
But the thread about being bannded?! All I have to say is "Lighten Up" and loosen your...ummm...well I guess I better not say it...cuz who knows what may happen hereafter.
Since I don't know who deleted the thread and I don't want to PM every MOD/Admin here for a reason as to why it was deleted, cuz for the most part...I only know but a few...just would like to thank who ever it was for not BANNING me in the same token and/or breath.
But, I will say this, from some other posts in other threads...all you have done, is added credibility about MOD's having too much power and/or people being afraid to say anything, because they are afraid they might be banned.
I want whomever to understand, I don't want to start a mutiny in "Mutantville", but I didn't expect to be "mutanized" for attempting to have a little Mutant-style fun.
I thought Mutantville was a place to let your hair down, and have some good clean fun?! Guess I was wrong...
Gee...I hate to see what is going to happen when I post, err...I should say planned on posting...about something humerous I did at work three years ago, a joke that kept on going for a month, and to where most of the plant employees started getting involved against our Industrial Engineer who thought HE was it with a capital T.
PS: MOD? Admin? Could you please send me a "Crystal Ball" like your's...heck I will use it here to ensure I never start something that apparently you can see getting out of hand like the thread I apparently started (exception of this thread), and perhaps, I could use at work, as my FORECASTING Crystal Ball so that I can determine more accuratly what I need to build to meet sales 100% on each and every product line so that I don't build too much of one product line and not enough of the other, as the one I have as a Materials Coordinator is out of order. (Anybody in Manufacturing will and/or should be able to understand that comment related to Forecasting and Production).
