Default Re: Requiem for deleted threads

I want to emphasize again that I am only writing about my own emotional reactions to threads being deleted without knowing why or . being informed, not about the decisions by the mods and admins to do that, which is something we all accept as a condition to participate here.

I have been/am on several different forums as I imagine many others are as well. It also happens sometimes on these other forums that threads or individual posts might be deleted but I find it bothers me less as I am usually reasonably clear in my own mind about why that might have happened, like for example soliciting donations, whereas oftentimes I am left wondering if I participated in a deleted thread here, how and if I contributed to it being deleted.

I am also sometimes very cautious about responding to certain threads to avoid being drawn into certain types of conflict or disagreement.

After a thread i have been participating in is removed I become more cautious about my posts and edit out a lot of what i might otherwise say because of my emotional reaction.

Not sure why this thread was moved here. I am not seeking to provide feedback but to connect with the people in the bipolar forum who know me from years of posting.

I did realize one connection today. I used to post a lot on a quit smoking forum but the whole forum vanished from the web from one day to another. It was on a commercial quit smoking web site and I guess they were using the forum to drive traffic to the website but eventually the owners lost interest in supporting it. It was a big loss at the time to not only have all the threads I wrote and participated in vanish but the whole forum disappear.

Typically what I see is that threads are deleted when they address inappropriate topics. For example threads that started as an attack on particular posters or intolerant threads that bash or promote bashing of other cultures or races or religions etc I donít see other threads deleted.

If threads are too argumentative then they just get closed, not deleted.

I donít miss deleted threads as those are typically inappropriate to begin with and have no place on PC. That has been my experience

That has not been my experience. Thanks for sharing.

The only times Iíve had this is when I was s-e-v-e-r-l-y manic / psychotic a few years back and just everything was 150% inappropriate on here (but genuinely, I had no idea ... at the time)

*sigh*

As a side note I take my meds regularly. True.

Hey Crazy Hitch,

That hasn't happened to me on here because when I've been severely manic I've also been convinced I didn't have bipolar so wouldn't be posting on a forum for people with bipolar...

but I do think the issue of deleted threads is more of an issue in the bipolar forum for reasons related to the illness itself.

I also take an AP regularly since finding out about Rexulti on the bipolar forum.

I'm glad that this thread has remained respectful and thoughtful to this point. I just want to throw in that...
if a post is removed the member who started the thread is notified
if a thread is moved to another, more appropriate, forum a redirect will stay on the old forum for 5 days. Hoping that the 5 days is long enough for someone to see the post has been moved. Leaving them longer than that would just make the forums messy.
if someone posted against guidelines they are notified so you never have to worry that a thread was removed "because of something you did" but weren't told. This shouldn't happen.
Everyone who has posted in a removed thread can not be notified. We just don't have the manpower to notify that many people.

The system isn't perfect but we do what we can.

Thank TheWell for your comments. I rationally understand that these deletions have nothing to do with me. It's an emotional reaction I have been writing about since the beginning of the thread. Now I have a little more insight into my reactions.

My parents used to argue and fight in a foreign language they didnt teach to their children so I was as a child often in an emotional 'war zone' of fighting and having no idea what the fighting was about and thinking it was about me. It turns out my father was having affairs all those years, but I didn't know what was going on at the time. I think I am reacting to 'parental authority' of the site acting in a hidden way to me based on my childhood experience.

Again it was not my intent to provide feedback as I originally posted this in the bipolar forum to get support and help rather than to make any suggestions about the site.

A post vanished? Not started by me..
Or am I imagining it.


Hugs to deleted threads
