You don't like my question?

I used to contribute a lot to this forum, way back when, like before nothing happened at 1/1/0. Call me a troll, if it makes you feel better, but why not answer my question, dipstick?

jump off. Your title...

GOOD SUGGESTION ! I salute you.

SysOp has their hands full...ok? Very delicate balance; NOT an easy job. Not everyone or everything...including me or gonna be perfect 100% of the time.

Live with it...*learn from it*...deletes are great "CLUES" as to where the boundaries are if you don't know. I've had to learn here; many people have. OK? No big deal.

Sometimes "deletes" will 'save you' much embarassment...(upon later examination). Sometimes we don't see things the way others do everytime we write something.

Do you best...try to ADD something to the discussion, instead of tearing it down.

If you think SysOps job is "easy"...just try it...cause you gonna get "slammed" from people on BOTH sides of any issue:

"Take this off!!!"

"NO leave it...You are UNFAIR!"

you see? It's a paradox and no easy thing. Roll with it; there are other ways to make your point. Write your coments to a web page; and leave a "URL" to it if you need.

Use your diplomatic, and try to understand that the SysOp is trying to BALANCE EVERYONE'S NEEDS...and that's a much wider picture than how just you or I might "see" things - on any given day.

Jumpoff: Are you a troll?

My first clue is your addressing the sysops directly. The people who do that are either a) asking for a post to be deleted, or b) complaining about their own post being deleted. Item b) often indicates a trolling problem in the past.

Second clue: use of the word "dipstick". This indicates a short fuse. Also, your post does not tell us what your original question was.

As the previous responder mentioned: perhaps a name change is indicated? Good luck with your next post. At least this one is still up (for now).

I saw one of your messages today before it got deleted -- the one about asteroids. It was flame bait. A civil discussion about the topic of asteroids is NOT what your intention was.
