    What's up with "This post has been removed." ?

    This post has been removed.

    So why do they say that?   Why not just delete it?

    Anybody know what these were?

    Are users being abusive, get reported and the post is replaced with 

    This post has been removed.

    Or is it null desperately trying to post?

    BH, I know a few of them are remnants of a few non-vulgar, non-abusive replies I made to a particular poster who's feelings were obviously hurt. I can't tell you much about any others.

    It is when people like me, that have called Stanley a troll, and been reported via the "report abuse" function, try to post anything.

    If this goes through, it will be the first one in a couple of weeks. There does not seem to be any way of knowing you are on "the list". Anything you try to post, simply do not appear.

    The opposite of "This post has been removed" is having the trolls here like we had two years ago and before....No thank you! Very thankful mulitiple miggs has been cleaned up by BDC.

    I know I got one that was non-abusive to the poster in question, but that disparaged Blake Wheeler, in a non-vulgar fashion. I think those happen when you're either banned or someone reports the post, regardless of the merit of the report.

    Dissing the Big Wheel is a no no around here, it will lead to an attack from the "Wheeler Posse" !

    Mentioning Wheeler around here should be a violation..

    Do you think YOUR BUDDY is still trying to make his way back into the forum ? 

    I think he's still posting even though it's showing "post has been removed" to say " Badhab, I'm still here " just to get you thinking about him.

    And another post bites the dust on the propsects thread. Something about a poster having urination problems while sleeping. Uggggh ! Weak !

    The mods decision making of what stays and what goes is comparable to Shanahan and his head scratchers.

    It's bizarre.  I think maybe it's just automatic if someone complains.

    Remember that JustinassSoccer posted and I used pretty strong language and that wasn't removed?

    You're correct sir. All it takes is for someone to report you claiming you've made a personal attack. Post is then deleted.

    Debate, but don't attack. In a community full of opinions and preferences, people always disagree. Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com encourage active discussions and welcomes heated debate in our Forums and on our Articles.

    And that bed wetting comment that was deleted was mine.  Probably reported by the same person that was reporting your posts.  It wasn't me on either occasion.

    And it sucks, because that was one of my better posts.

    I'd say some were Stanley sending complaints, but definetly most of them are Null. Seems there is 2 to 3 a day. If I'm right, and that nut is still posting even though people can't see it, tells you how sick of an individual he is...I'm guessing therye still empty posts about O'Hallaron, Walkom etc..

    I'm not pointing any fingers. I'm just answering a question regarding why so many posts are disappearing. I know they aren't all mine.

    What is needed is for Badhab to do some Sherlock Holmes type of investigating on the missing posts. A kind of "who done it " thread .

    He went to great lengths looking for info on Null. Whether it was correct or not is a story in itself.

    They either censor a post or delete the account.  I'd love to know the age and education level of the people who are scanning the threads making these decisions. It's so arbitrary.




    That's what we're saying. There's nobody scanning the forums looking for problems. It's a matter of receive a complaint-delete the post. It's much easier than trying to deal with the countless complaints they receive on a case by case basis. They'd probably need to hire multiple people just to deal with the complaints on the Sox forum, let alone all of the rest of them.
