I had the following typed up but by the time I hit enter the thread had closed.
As frustrating as it is to have a bunch of my posts deleted, It really ain't a big deal. It's just an Internet forum.
Having had some moderator experience I can tell you it is imposable to make everyone happy, all you can hope for is moderately pissing off everyone from the sites owner to the members. In a thread like this it would have been imposable to delete just certain posts, or parts of certain posts without pissing people off.
