I had received a msg about having a thread I posted deleted.
However the person who deleted the thread simply signed the post:

How am I supposed to reply and challenge a wrong moderation decision, if all moderation is done anonymously from an unreplyable account?



I posted a thread In the NotreDame area about promo's being offered for sale on Amazon.com by a third party seller.
Quote:
'Notre Dame expansion available on Amazon for 9.99 + ship... 10 copies remaining
It was suggested that I could post it in the Hot deal section IF it was a particularly good price, however availability of an unavailable out of print item at a regular price is not a hot deal!
I have seen very much similar talk in other forums Example:
Troyes: [thread=1449229][/thread]

Why would telling people where to get an unavailable item not be a good use of the forums for that item?

I also have a large problem with moderators deleting useful information, if there is a more appropriate place to put it, rather than just moving it there, that is a disservice to all BGG users.

Your threads were reported as spam (or at least I think so - the report has had the username and threads links removed now that the spam has been cleaned up).

Deletion and a cursory geek-mail notice is standard.

Posting something in the wrong forum will usually get you moderated. There's no reason to be upset about it. If it's a good price, put it on Hot Deals. Subscribers will love you for it.
