How come @Stephen66515 keeps posting here about stuff that gets expunged?
It doesn't look like spam. Some of it looks quite funny/interesting - and some of the responses too.

I think we should be told.

Oops, sorry, in that case I won't give an example as probably they weren't intended for us to see. I haven't been following too closely, but I think the last one so far was a bit obscure.
It looked like the authors were having some fun, anyways.

Ah, you mean the posts may have leaked to the forum somehow by mistake, rather than stayed in the Chat tunnel? (Which I looked at just now but can't seem to use at present as I have Java disabled).
"Fun" can be provocatively (I guess) stirring up a hornet's nest?
I gather that Cody and a flying pig (?) seemed to resolve the situation...

No, I was just communicating that stephen is on very friendly basis with the people who have the power to delete posts.  I did delete one post of his yesterday that had the title "ヽ(´▽`)/" and had no contents, but stephen knows that he is only allowed a certain number of totally silly topic starts per week smiley

Although...saying that...I don't recall any others being deleted recently (Except one which I requested to be deleted because it was supposed to be a nice memorial post on 9/11 and it instantly got hit with anti-government stuff and I wasn't comfortable having that here on DC...in the Basement is fine...but the way it was portrayed by the person commenting meant it would have caused a lot of heated tempers) smiley

Yes, that was the thread I read, and I thought you had saved me the trouble of doing something similar - I always like to remember the lives of innocent people that have been taken by murderers of varying religio-political ideology.
I am surprised that you took that down. It was apolitical as far as I could see. You probably need to grow a stronger spine, mate.

It wasn't about what I said that made me want to remove it...it was about how a certain member of DC acted and I felt that it would be better for the community as a whole if a complete flame war didn't erupt...which that thread could have very easily started.

Coincidentally, this was also the sort of point I was making to @Stephen66515 in another thread in the Living Room, where he had made a genuinely kind and apolitical post and then succumbed to an aggressive outburst in response from another DCF member and so nervously censored his own post, thereby restricting his own speech and unwittingly making of himself a victim of, and submitting to, another's strongly-held opinions. Much as I detest the act of censorship and self-censorship, I detest the action of opinionated bullying and victimisation even more.

So you're bullying him into submitting to the actions you and your strongly-held opinions dictate that he take by calling him spineless? huh

 huh I want to laugh at this and dismiss it as an amusing quip...but...I do actually see your point there  ohmy

On another note...

I didn't "bow to pressure", I didn't "Give in to another's views" and I didn't "Succumb" to anybody.  I freely chose to remove a post that was going to cause a lot of arguments on the forum here.  I chose to do this so as to not raise anybodies tempers or cause mouser or any of the team at DC to have to start issuing any sort of warnings or banning people for losing their minds (All of which is a possibility when a community clashes heads over something).

I have no intention or want, of being the one to cause a mass-flame war on the forums whether through direct or indirect actions.

My decision was my own, and nobody else's.

@Stephen66515: Ah, I think I understand now. Sorry to have seemed critical of you - it was really the action of self-censorship that I was critical of, not you per se.

I consider you made a very positive and potentially uplifting set of statements in that deleted OP, and deleting it was our loss.
I also realised that the negative contra views, whilst they may have been making some valid points (I don't know), were off-topic and likely Basement material.
I saw the need to enable the various flows of thought/discussion without losing the potential of your spontaneously positive and beautiful affirmation of the human life and spirit.

Sorted now, and thankyou for your uplifting comments.
