In other discusson forums, I would deleate the whole thing and repost. But here, you can't. So what do we do here when that happens?

    Post the thread here and let the moderators handle it.

    As deggie suggested, post the thread in here and we'll take a look at it. Thanks.

    If you are referring to the following discussion:

    ...then it seems to me that he was attempting to help.  Your response seems a bit ungracious.

    The point system is the main reason why there is excessive posting, including too much OT posting, in these forums.  If you had read the thread I referenced first before questioning me about it you would have understood that.

    It is a community forum.  Just as you cannot control the discussion or an individuals choice of words in a room full of people, you do not have any control over other forum members and their responses here.  Everyone here, within the rules and terms of use, is free to post what they choose to, just as any crowd of people can say what they wish in an open discussion.  Also keep in mind that there are people from all over the world here, and often english is not their first language, so you may be mis-interpreting what they were trying to say.

     

    Also, this is a free support forum, so you get whats ya' pays for - sometimes a great deal, sometimes, less so.

    That was the only recent topic of yours that seemed to match your description.  Both the title of this topic and your description seem to suggest you were referring to a specific incident.  If that was not the case, I apologize.

    You are free to start a new post of course.  But your time to edit an existing post is limited, and once that time pases, it is uneditable.

     

    Given the rate of new posts here, your old one will usually get buried beyond anyones line of sight in a fairly short time, so go ahead and just start your thread afresh.
