I understand that gentoo is an advanced distro, more suited for advanced users. Yet, we all have to start somewhere.
I have asked some really dumb questions on this forum, got good help. Lately, any question I ask, my post just gets deleted by a mod.
I try and ask intelligent questions, am polite, have learned much about gentoo, still have a long ways to go. My questions in my opinion are becoming more advanced and quite suited for this forum.
Yet, I still have some mod with a hard on for me and deletes any thing I post.
Question for the mod is, what do you have against me?
I will not use your precious forum any more, I can find my needed info elsewhere. I am not going to stop using gentoo because of you.
Wonder if the mod has enough weblos to explain their actions before deleting this post.
I am known as carpenterguy on this forum, and genfool in irc genfool was taken and not used for 5 years on this forum.
So mod, you have an answer why you hate me so much? Or will you just delete me again?

now let's see if it gets deleted as fast as before 8O

could you elaborate more e.g. giving an example of a thread or post that got deleted ? (what it was about)

Are you talking about http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6102488-highlight-.html#6102488 and http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6155343-highlight-.html#6155343 ? They don't look very deleted to me.

My bad, The post are getting moved and not deleted.
I give every mod here a sincere apology, and will use the tip that Allenjb gave me.

Hmmm, I always wondered if members are notified when their post is moved. Guess not.

Oh well carpenterguy, just one of life's little misunderstandings. :)

As you may have noticed this thread was posted in the wrong forum and will likely be moved. :wink:

I want to add 1 more post to this thread.
Yesterday, I truly believed what I wrote. I was quickly proven wrong, and did admit I was wrong.
At this point, I expected to be be slammed and deserve it.
Instead I found just the opposite, I now have greater respect for this forum.
A special thanks to those that took it on a lighter note, real special thanks to those that chose not to reply, tell me what they really think.
This forum is professional, simply ROCKS!

I'm glad that in your case, your mistake was met with understanding instead of malice. It was an honest mistake.

you, sir, know how to use irony.

@OP: use egosearch (the view your posts link) - be glad you have it, becuase some other forums don't, and it's REALLY annoying.
