RY- go to sleep, take out the garbage, learn a little, prepare tomorrow’s drasha… not so boringJanuary 20, 2009 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #676096
Lately, I’ve had a lot of (truly) innocuous posts not show up. Mods, have you been deleting a lot of my posts? I’m not asking WHY, only IF. If the answer is no, I think maybe there is something wrong with the computer that I use (I definitely typed it out and clicked send, but maybe it doesn’t transmit?).January 20, 2009 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #676098syriansephardiMember
Squeak- ditto!!!!January 20, 2009 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #676099
squeak: did three! I’m wondering what’s going on.Maybe they’re still mad cuz of joseph.January 20, 2009 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #676100
yeah a few of mine are missing in action but i learned not to comment.
btw squeak i’m in shock that i’m worthy of you answering my posts. what’s gotten into you?January 20, 2009 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #676101
moish – why shouldn’t you be worthy?January 20, 2009 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #676102
ditto to the above. Who do we blame, Joseph or the moderstors?January 20, 2009 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #676103
i dunno – i get the feeling you don’t like me. and generally people don’t talk to people they don’t like.January 20, 2009 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #676104oomisParticipant

Squeak, I have also seen one or two posts not make it to print. They may not be perceived to be as innocuous as we think they are. Maybe they could potentially offend someone, unintentionally.January 20, 2009 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #676105
I’m surprised that so many are having the same problem. I never had this before. My other thought was that it was the presence of an ad that requires Flash player, and I do not have the most current version. Every time I load CR I am prompted to update, and I say no. Does anyone else who said Ditto have the same situation?January 20, 2009 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #676106
It wasn’t just Joseph. Recently, a lot of posters were trying to pry personal information out of other posters so we started cracking down. The basic rule is, don’t try to pry out personal information. Any questions or comments directed towards trying to “figure out” a blogger’s identity will not be approved. Posts that ask others to meet them at “Plonis” will not be approved. We understand that sometimes it is not done intentionally. Joseph asked another poster about their profession in response to another post which may or may not have given it away. Although others may be able to figure it out on their own based on the original post(s), we felt that asking directly “do you work in such and such” is not acceptable so we deleted the post and closed the thread to make the point that this was happening too often.January 20, 2009 7:52 pm at 7:52 pm #676107
ok, so ditto ditto ditto for me too. But I think that was only yesterday. I was convinced i was transmitting my bad mood to the Mods through my sarcastic comments or there’s a Mod that really can’t stand my guts- no matter what I type. But alls well that ends well- now we’re back in business
d’you think they’re picking on Charlie Brown’s posts today? Charlie if you’re reading this, we sympathize and want you to know that this too shall pass. We’re rooting for you buddyJanuary 20, 2009 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #676108
42, Understood. But my question was about undisputably innocuous posts, like saying thank you to ames for a compliment. I thought that maybe my posts were being automatically deleted, but I can see today that that was not true. So I’m guessing it has to do with my computer.January 20, 2009 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #676109
everyone can either blame Joseph or the original that sent off the warning- ME
Last week a CR member revealed her route home from work after i asked “…”. I couldn’t believe her response was put through the screening board and advised the Mods to be very careful bout revealing personal info. Although i very often ask/tease about personal info, i do not expect you to answer truthfully or seriously. (perhaps the mods didn’t heed my warning then, but i pride myself on detecting the danger early on ;))
Please take care of yourselves- there are too many tragic stories already

mod-42 as you can see we fully understood your point as is stated in the opening post of this thread.We greatly appreciate your work!January 20, 2009 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #676111
squeak, I just searched and found only 2 of your posts deleted in the past day, is that too rough for you?January 20, 2009 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #676112
just out of curiosity: how many of mine were deleted. (don’t worry you could post it even if it’s a high number…)January 20, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #676113
Not by a long shot :o) TY for checking.
You’ve just confirmed that there is something wrong with my computer (because more than 2 of my posts are missing – the rest disappearing must have been due to something else)January 20, 2009 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #676114cherrybimParticipant
Moderator: I was wondering about that myself.
I had a post removed the other day about the virtues of some camps (Help in choosing a Camp); a very positive post about Camp Sternberg and Camp Tubby. I also had a post that added a couple of singers to cantoresq’s list; which didn’t make it.January 20, 2009 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #676115
mod-42 how many of mine were deleted?January 20, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #676116
Mod42- you really fell into that trap, but good. You need to add another “best poster” rule/criteriaJanuary 20, 2009 10:31 pm at 10:31 pm #676117
squeak – then I guess something would be wrong with my computer too. Don’t be so quick to accept blame (and don’t allow your computer to carry the blame) for missing posts.January 20, 2009 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #676118January 20, 2009 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #676119
notice how squeak avoids answering that. it’s ok, dude. i forgive easily.January 20, 2009 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #676120
so YW is getting old and feeble, can’t handle the onslaught the way it used to. It happens to the best of us- how sadJanuary 20, 2009 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #676121
I don’t have time to go searching for everyone’s deleted comments. The moderating is going slow enough as it is, do you want it to go slower?January 20, 2009 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #676122
NO!January 20, 2009 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #676123
at least you admit to being slow 🙂January 20, 2009 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #676124JosephParticipant
I’ve been eating a lot of posts lately; so blame me.January 20, 2009 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #676125
Joseph the post eater, Charlie the neshama and ego booster, moish the ghost, arevim the shadchan, curious the artistJanuary 20, 2009 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #676126
moish01 – I’m truly sorry that I came across as not liking you. That is simply not the case. I am now enacting an “answer every future post by moish01” vendetta to counter that impression.
Mods, sorry that everyone else is now bugging you for their deleted post info. You can completely ignore them and continue to give up-to-the-minute information on the status of all of my posts only. Thanks again.January 21, 2009 12:40 am at 12:40 am #676127
areivim: You left me out sniff sniff:-( mod-42 why is the CR slower sometimes than others?January 21, 2009 1:30 am at 1:30 am #676128

Joseph, what do squeak’s posts’ taste like? Are they crunchy? Do you eat them with ketchup?January 21, 2009 1:59 am at 1:59 am #676132
mod-42 why are you asking if you’re the one that really ate them?;-)January 21, 2009 2:22 am at 2:22 am #676133
RoshYeshivah: i like the sound of Operation-personal-post-cleanup!!! mine were not even personal ones!!! maybe they count moish commenting about me no longer in ireland, as personal from the weather thread!!! thnx my condolences to ya as well for being left out as well!!!January 21, 2009 2:24 am at 2:24 am #676134JosephParticipant
ywmod42, lots of ketchup, to kill the taste (as Arnold Fine’s brother would do to his soup.) Btw 42, why does 42 take a particular liking to squeak, eh?January 21, 2009 2:49 am at 2:49 am #676135
asdf: gotta be careful these days no longer in ireland may be personal so don’t be suprised if they take it downJanuary 21, 2009 3:22 am at 3:22 am #676136
