Why do my posts keep disappearing. "The political tide is turning" disappeared then "Brexit has not a clue what it wants."  disappeared.

I have started both again.

I will record every-time this happens and see what the pattern is.

That might be the case dom888, or there could be another two explanations why the one you posted here has been removed.

Your last post is along the same lines as the one which was removed. Yet you seem pretty confident to post similar stuff again, despite claiming you were reported for it.

If I'd just had a post removed, I certainly wouldn't stick my neck out like that so soon, unless I was sure of my ground for some reason.

He's calling me a name after his post was deleted for the same thing.

If that's not suspicious then what is?

A regular poster in his position would be backing off instead of trying to provoke me.

That's not quite true dom888, certain people on here can write what they choose to write  and with little fear of a ban.
Although they have toned it down lately, so as not to stand out too much from the rest.

Obscenity court ruling[edit]
Perhaps the best-known use of the term is in the title of the 1977 punk rock album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. Testimony in a resulting prosecution over the term demonstrated that in Old English, the word referred to a priest, and could also be used to mean "nonsense". Defence barrister John Mortimer QC and Virgin Records won the case: the court ruled that the word was not obscene.[48] It just means "put aside all of that other rubbish and pay attention to this."[1] In a summary for the defence, Mortimer asked,

“    What sort of country are we living in if a politician comes to Nottingham and speaks here to a group of people in the city centre and during his speech a heckler replies ‘bollocks’. Are we to expect this person to be incarcerated, or do we live in a country where we are proud of our Anglo-Saxon language? Do we wish our language to be virile and strong or watered down and weak?[49]    ”

From the same judgement.

The chairman of the hearing was forced to conclude:

Much as my colleagues and I wholeheartedly deplore the vulgar exploitation of the worst instincts of human nature for the purchases of commercial profits by both you and your company, we must reluctantly find you not guilty of each of the four charges.


So you see edy baby, vulgar covers it along with offensive.

You have to understand what you are reading before you jump in. Not just twist everything simply to suit your own poor standards.
Report Dr Crippen December 21, 2017 1:29 PM GMT
edy baby,
Vulgar or offensive seems to cover the use of the word as you used it there.

Countless posts have been removed for far less than that.

So if everything that can be reported is being reported, or stuff can be removed on request, why is your post still there?

I don't recognise that description edy, especially after another poster had to slap you down for your condescending manner.
Which you were even bragging about in a later post.

That makes you one of the least liked amongst posters, and a prime target for this report brigade there is so much talk about.

So if that is true, why is your offensive post still up?
Report edy December 21, 2017 1:46 PM GMT
I wasn't particularly bragging about it. More bemoaning and regretting that tendency of mine in response to that particular poster because he's actually very nice and decent lad.

As for additional reasons apart from my stellar positive reputation around these parts. Maybe the forum's internal search feature returning more than 6000 posts containing the term you fake enragement about for no other reason than to wee-wee on my leg (was that choice of words innocent enough for you?) could be a clue.

With regard to the edy I imagine, me standing in front of you and farting in your face would be more likely.

That would be humourous, kind of arousing even, but my knees are kind of in bad shape and I'm over 6ft tall. Hence from a logistics perspective that could lead to problems if we can't find a ladder for our kinky farting games.

I have to say I'm blushing a bit here. I didn't expect you to roll like that too..
Report Dr Crippen December 21, 2017 2:28 PM GMT
The posts that melv is referring to here wouldn't be offensive to anyone.

Yet melv's posts are being removed the same as many others are removed for no apparent reason that anyone can see. While eddy's post would be a sitting duck for removal, if a game of tit-for-tat of reporting were going on between different political camps.

So there has to be another reason why melv's stuff keeps going missing.

And a further reason still why edy seems to operate on here with impunity if the tit-for-tat idea is valid.
Report edy December 21, 2017 2:35 PM GMT
Please, the two of us have even had our usually fantastic conversations centre around various of perfectly innocent posts of mine having been removed. Something we both agreed is incredibly regrettable because future readers lose context when reading our splendid, well worth reading exchanges at a later point in time.
Report Dr Crippen December 21, 2017 2:44 PM GMT
Not that I readily recall.  Yet that adds more fuel to the fire if it is true.

The answer then, if it is not other posters responsible for getting posts removed, must be that the moderators are removing posts for their own reasons.

And targeting certain posters.
Report edy December 21, 2017 2:46 PM GMT
So my various posts that we talked about were removed because moderators are specifically targeting me (among others) but are leaving my sitting duck for removal posts alone and generally let me operate in impunity? Are you sure you thought that through?
Report Dr Crippen December 21, 2017 2:53 PM GMT
They might remove them randomly or simply to disrupt conversations.
Or someone else might be monitoring the forum  during that session.

Surely even people like yourself have got their own opinions on stuff occasionally.

People report posts, often out of vengeance or because they're plain silly. Sometimes you get forum staff that deletes things without reading, sometimes the reports are processed by forum staff that actually reads the posts.

At last a post from edy at 15:30 where he addresses the point. How long did that take?

His answer might cover the odd post. Although he says the Betfair staff remove stuff without reading them. How could he know that?
He wrote that sentence like he's very familiar with how the Betfair staff operate.

So if they only read some of the stuff, then what do they base their bans on?
You're saying in effect that posters will only pick up a ban if the Betfair moderator reads the post.
And other posts they don't read can contain all kinds of obnoxious stuff, and they simply get removed.
Or not removed in the case of eddy's offensive post if that was reported and read.
Report edy December 21, 2017 5:36 PM GMT
Is it just me or is it a tad weird if someone who openly fantasises about farting into other people's faces keeps banging on about a synonym for "nonsense" being offensive?

How could he know that?

Maybe I'm a secret agent. Maybe I slept my way into being on the good side of betfair staff. Maybe I'm betfair staff myself. Maybe I'm a platinum forum customer. Maybe Betfair has a secret list of forum users with special privileges and I'm on it. A list with people that have proven to be well-mannered and responsible enough to only use words like dyke to describe "A long wall or embankment built to prevent flooding from the sea" and not as a slur word towards minorities like many others on here would.

All more likely than betfair staff going randomly deleting posts for some giggles or them having a hit list of perfectly innocent posters that they target.

You're saying in effect that posters will only pick up a ban if the Betfair moderator reads the post.
And other posts they don't read can contain all kinds of obnoxious stuff, and they simply get removed.
