Is it just me , or is anyone elses posts going missing.

I would estimate that at least 7 of my posts in the last month have just disappeared into the empty spaces behind the WWW.

There was one this morning , that I'm about 99.9% positive , came up (question about Terracan) , but , its not there.

AFAIK , I have only had one post "moderated" , so , where's the rest.

Yes, I know I can dribble on with the best , but , I dont think there is a dribble filter.

Anyone else having problems ?

Lol . . . . maybe ;)

I haven't upset anyone for ages . . .

Well , except Ozi.

I dont know what it is. It happens every once in a while , a post just seems to go missing.

Just seems to have been happening more regularily of late.

Dumb question I know but are you doing EVERY THING right?
I've lost some posts and I know some have been removed cause I was just plain offensive. (I apologize)
I write my posts in Word now and save them. I then copy and paste into the Forum. This also gives me the tools available like spell check and thesaurus. (Shift + f7).
Also if a post disappears I have a copy to re-post.

It took me ages to work out what that garbage can crack meant.

Did you mention another web site or give a link to another web site of a similar nature for answers, sometimes they get a bit narky about that.

Try post 20721 - Brian is talking about his new Terracan.

There hasn't been much moderation lately apart from deleting Johnno1's posts and they were last week. We certainly haven't deleted any this morning.

A couple of times I have replied to a post, and after a couple of days I've gone back to see what others had said, but the post is GONE.

I put it down to me usually recieving criticism from others, who may become abusive, therefor the post gets the chop !!!

I have noticed that some guys do not participate in posts if I have had my say, they obviously think I'm a d...head, and that's fine by me, but I generally say what has happened to me personally and my observation of things.

But hey, thats life.

The sad pert about this forum these days is that it has degenerated to a series of "Dorothy Dixer's" ie tyres, batteries, dual batt. systems, solar systems, hot water from your exhaust pipe ad nauseum.
Gone are the robust debates (without insult) that promoted stimulus of thought and generated awareness of what this country (outback,bush, people of) is all about. Some of the rigs you see around the country these days are obviously set up with the philosophy that "mine is bigger/faster/meaner" than yours so take notice blah blah. Never mind that its never been further off the road than the local footy ground and the owner cant find low range.
I saw a set up recently that must have cost an absolute packet, and asked the driver about his rig. I was invited to not be a smart @rse, what would I know about 4wd,ing etc... ( I was with a friend in his Suzi.) we saw him the next day bogged to the belly in dry sand on the beach, we were coming back from fishing. So I proved I am a smart @rse. We snatched that lump out with the Suzi and left him scratching his head. I could have pointed out that centipedes arn't the very best tyres for sand, but who cares when you cop the attitude?
Yep, posts will continue to go missing from this forum, these days we have to watch what my old mum called "p's and q's" now commonly known as the "thought police". But there are also more interesting pastures to graze upon. Tis true -- thats life!

I think you're being a little harsh about the "dixers" kesh.

Many new people to this forum need knowledge that some may already have. It's not their fault they don't know about a given subject, that's why they ask questions.

I, for one, will try to help within the capabilities of my limited knowledge, in the same way that others helped me when I first came to this forum.

I feel it is my way of putting back a little that I took out. Just my outlook on life.

Cheers,

Jim.
