Topic: Root password suddenly refused
Post: post 6293597
Reason: Topic improperly (in my opinion) moved to OTW. OP is running Gentoo and is having an issue that clearly (to me) belongs in "Networking & Security". Also, it's a really new install on which he's still working out the kinks. Am I wrong? If so, what's the rationale?

He's using funtoo, I've double checked our rules and have moved the topic to US and explained my reasoning a bit better.

Tom,

Okay, I missed that nuance. If I hadn't, I wouldn't've complained. Thanks for the clarification.

I did the report, Reason was "funtoo releated", i suppose mod should leave a bit the report so others users can have a chance to see why at first.
Some kind of updating the report with a "done" for 1 or 2 days before the cleaning.

We tend to remove posts from the report topic as soon as we deal with them otherwise it would grow quite large and other moderators may waste time looking at issues that have already been resolved. I should have just been clearer in my original response as to why the topic was moved which would have prevented any confusion.
