Did a mod REALLY just delete my thread?

I posted a couple days ago that anytime a thread is posted here that TRULY starts to dig down and get straight to the point of how to make money online, that it will get DELETED.

I just had a freaking EPIC thread going with tons of great info and solid advice that will actually help people make money, and now it's GONE??

WTF???????????????????????

Im done with this garbage forum and Im going to spread the word to some a-list bloggers with massive e-mail lists.

    Yeah it's unfortunate threads get deleted, days to weeks of great info is lost all in a instance with no way to get it back. You can google the thread and maybe try and save the cache, if any. I personally wish forum moderation was more a community thing or very least there was a page with thread id and deletion reason listed, something, anything. Don't leave the forum though, just some delete threads doesn't make the forum itself bad, it's a great forum in fact.

      My threads are full of premium content that only authorities such as myself could create. And Im in these forums giving it away for free. So are other authority figures who respond to my threads with more premium content.

      This does not go well for the warrior members who are trying to SELL the same exact info in their WSO's.

      Point is, Im killing their sales.

      The end.

        [chuckle] Hopefully he'll take that sense of humor and apply it to something social over the weekend.

        If he considers "This that and the other are BS. Tell me how to do [basic thing]" to be premium content, he's lost. If he's trolling, it's just lame.

          Joseph,
          Do you really believe that your thread was deleted because you were harming other members WSO'S.
          Of course he doesn't. It's part of the "same old lame old" toolkit. When someone does something online that you don't like, you go on the offensive. Accuse them of all sorts of Bad Things, while painting yourself as the hero.

        Well if your thread is "full of premium content" and you are an "authority" why have you only posted here 55 times in 2 years? And out of those 55 posts of "premium content" you have only received 1 Thanks? :rolleyes:

        Perhaps because your premium content is in fact just garbage?? Just saying...

      It was probably an "I am brilliant and great, and you should watch me" thread.

    Yes, your thread just got deleted. This should not surprise you much.

    When you start out by blasting anyone and everyone who says things you disagree with as "hogwash," "BS," and the other nonsense with which you often pack your posts, you can count on the thing getting nuked. That's no secret.

    If you want to take this startling revelation, and the conspiracy theories you build from it, to your blogger friends... Have fun with that.

    Buh-bye. Have a nice weekend.

          The REAL question is why this thread isn't deleted. I mean after all it's nothing but bashing the op, the bashing isn't even the preamble as someone called it earlier, but the main focus of this thread. I also see no value to the main internet marketing forum being added here. Unless this subforum was fusioned with the offtopic subforum and I haven't realized yet. See any parallels to the op's thread that got deleted? Hush, where did those come from ?!

          So, please be consequent enough to either move this thread to the off-topic forum where it provides value in form of a fun-thread or delete it. Practise what you preach!

            Because the guy will almost certainly be back, and it's useful to have the immediate example of his narcissism to point folks to when he does.

            That leaves out the whole "The boy needed tuh be spanked" thing... And he really did.

        I didn't specify the mods.

        Just the forum seems to jump on people very quickly who complain.

        In some cases this is deserved as a lot of people post a lot of stupid complaints and there is a lot of whining. And I am not one to shy away from cynical barbs myself.

        But in many cases the people throwing the barbs aren't even aware of the circumstances behind the complaint.

        And I'm not talking specifically about the OP who could have been more diplomatic in his approach.

        But threads slagging someone for a bad thread often go on longer than the original bad thread...

      Mahlon,
      I didn't see any reason the thread would be expected to be deleted. I don't know why this forum belittles people who get upset.
      If you post in a consistently abusive tone, you really should expect threads to go away. And simply deleting a thread hardly constitutes "belittling" the poster.

      The first rant from this gent about a deleted thread focused on accusing the moderators and owner of trying to squash useful info, to keep the members uninformed so they'd keep buying stuff. His whole approach to things he doesn't like seems to be to create villains and paste them into some generic conspiracy theme.

      Remind me again, please, which part of the rules or conventions for online discussion fora suggest that the maintainers of said fora are obligated to retain posts which are abusive?

    It was probably an "I am brilliant and great, and you should watch me" thread.
    Nope. It was a generic "Gurus are all morons and they lie" post, followed up with a request for advice on finding niches that are actually profitable. If he'd posed the question civilly, without the ridiculous (and typically negative) preamble, there'd have been nothing wrong with it.

    its pretty hilarious.. even with gaming forums, man.. im sure u can imagine what we let slide over there. and when we dont allow something, its a conspiracy.. not realizing what other kind of 'shenanigans' we let the users get away with.

    oh well

    i mean i'll sit there and trash talk all day and still rip you apart in the game while im doing it - LOL but some people take things too far on forums. doesnt matter what kind of niche its based on.

        plus im in the process of installing a pool, by hand i might add :|

        i bought 600 pounds of sand yesterday (the all purpose sand, not just the play sand.. not sure what the difference is, other than a few bux.. but whatever.. lol)

        i loaded the 600 pounds onto the cart. on to the truck. off the truck. then moved it again today for a 4th time, when the people came to cut the grass (we have 5 acres so it definitely had to be done)

        i know, i shouldnt have put it there to begin with. but whatever. i'm just gonna be moving it all again for a 5th time tomrrow when i level the ground & install the pool.. lol

        so forgive me for being a little 'lax' with my "comebacks" or "insults" or any type of wit for tonight.

        and ive had a few drinks so if my jokes arent top notch, whatever.. im not paid to be a forum comedian. lol

      How come he gets to use this forum to voice his negative opinion of us Texans.

      See rule #1. If you have a problem with ...god or Texans....take it up with us. It's probably a good idea to bring a gun or two a long as well..lol

      This forum is so corrupt. They even let members bash Texans for no reason at all... come on paul. playing favorites again.

      please don't take this post seriously


      Rule #1

      If you have a problem with another Warrior, a Guru, or God, take it up with them directly. Not here. No exceptions.

            Robin,
            OK, is that belittling?
            Wasn't intended as such, but I'd be okay with that characterization of the comment. It's not as though he didn't deserve it.

            Theo,

Hopefully he finds a forum that suites his needs, though I suspect he'll come back here eventually, warriorforum definitely a unique gem.

    Well, not from that account, anyway.

    Not only did he say he was done here, he immediately went and posted another thread, claiming the only purpose for the existence of the forum is to sell WSOs. (He was less polite in his phrasing, but that was the gist of it.) Personally, I wouldn't much care if Allen shut that whole section of the forum down.

    His time is better spent somewhere that he finds a good fit for his needs. This was clearly not it.

      We have a lot of members who say what they think, without holding back, who manage to do it in a civil way. You don't get banned for that. You get thanked for it.

      I don't think he was angry. I don't even think he was serious. I suspect he was just entertaining himself at the expense of folks who didn't get the gag.

        Not me. Personally, I'd be glad if Allen shut that section down. Sure, there are a lot of good offers there, but some...not so much. What really bugs me about it is the mindset people have about the WSO sefction. Rather than focusing on providing a valuable product at a exclusive discount for Warriors, complete newbies are starting WSOs with dollar signs in their eyes.

        Not really healthy for the community, IMHO. And it attracts a lot of people who have that "get rich quick" mindset.

        Granted, I don't make money with the WSO section, so that's easy for me to say.

          Well, I wouldn't be glad about it, but I wouldn't be all that disappointed, either. Wouldn't make any difference to me personally except to save time dealing with lots of prima donnas, a few impatient twits, and the occasional sleazeball.

          Anyone who'd panic over the possibility needs to reconsider their business model. I long ago lost count of the number of times I've said: Don't let your business become too dependent on ANY site or resource you don't own. Including this forum.

      Probably wouldn't have been, if he'd left it at that. He kept pushing in a way that indicated that was the desired outcome, so I gave him what he wanted.

      Assuming it wasn't just an overplayed gag, he can now parade cheerfully and righteously about, telling folks how the Evil Mods here have oppressed him. "Help, help, I'm being oppressed!"

      Personally, I tend to think it was a schtick he got bored with and decided to end. Hard to tell for sure, though. He could just be weirding out in his spare time.

    I know that it doesn't feel well because you put in a lot of effort and time to write something helpful and valuable. But that's the past and you cannot change that in any regard. If you post the same thread again, odds are that it'll get deleted the second time.

      And I really couldn't understand why any of y'all were trying to help him with his p*** poor attitude. He's overly pessimistic, and if I'm not mistaken he mentioned he had a problem with drinking and smoking...? Maybe he drank or smoked something that caused him to go off, not once but twice on here. But anyway...

    Yeah, otherwise once you start filling it up, the pressure is gonna make whichever side is lower start leaning, and eventually just collapse the entire pool.

    We went thru this last year with a smaller one, so since were doing a bigger, more permanent one I figure we should do things right. No point havin to do it a 2nd time, lol.

    Just didnt last year, since we already planned on upgrading to a bigger one. To drain it I just ran a razor blade around the bottom of the liner. LOL

    Here is an idea. Why don't you write a series of articles or an ebook to explain what was said? Surely people would be filled with gratitude for your creative efforts. After all, with your a-list blogger contacts and their massive email lists, you could make a large sum of money. You would then be able to outsource your warrior forum posting to someone else.

    In case you were actually wondering (not pretending to be trying to understand so you could pile on and add your 2 cents) the reason some of the members feel the staff belittles dissenting voices is because whenever a thread like this is created, a bunch of older users, who think they are important because they have had an account on an internet forum for a long time, quickly jump in to belittle the user and the staff allows it to go on and on.

    TL ; DR Perhaps just reply if you're gonna reply then close these types of threads? A lot of bullies like to call what they do "just having a little fun" at someone's expense. "They deserved it" often being a popular excuse as well.

      Oh puhlease what is the deal with newbies always getting angry with old members?

      Forget the aged accounts conspiracy the WHOLE POINT is the guy acted like a jackass. How are you missing this one very essential point? Anything after that fact means very little to me.

      Forums are not suppose to be run perfectly, thats what makes them fun imho. There NEEDS to be leeway, or leniancy, favoritism, why? Because its HUMAN NATURE. You find it in politics, in big business, people get their friends involved... its how the world turns so get use to it.

      Paul Myers was extremely professional how he handled this thread imo I just can't tell you what I've seen on other forums run by meatheads or arrogant musicians or worse gamers. Marketers tend to have far more taste and respect EVEN IN situations like this. Don't think of it as "belittling" think of it as making a fair observation.

      Finally, if people are jumping on the OP, maybe thats what he deserved? In the law system after people get sentenced, they ALSO get belittled in the jail system. CO's rip on inmates, intimidate them, threaten them, even beat them at times. This happens A LOT in America (as much as people live under a rock here) so if you want cry about people belittling others, do it in a place that matters imo.

      Some judges order people to walk around society wearing signs on their bodies, how is THAT any different than belittling someone?

      Its NOT. Belittling HAPPENS, so GET USE TO IT. If you really have that big a problem with people belitting others, then you really just have an issue with reality imo.

      My very last point. You've been on this forum a few months, so how can YOU even say what really goes on here on a daily basis unless you've been a member here before your current account?

      So your 3 short months here give you credibility to talk about how "old members always act like this?"

      I don't think so.

      In case you were actually wondering (not pretending to be trying to understand so you could pile on and add your 2 cents) the reason some of the members feel the staff belittles dissenting voices is because whenever a thread like this is created, a bunch of older users, who think they are important because they have had an account on an internet forum for a long time, quickly jump in to belittle the user and the staff allows it to go on and on.

      TL ; DR Perhaps just reply if you're gonna reply then close these types of threads? A lot of bullies like to call what they do "just having a little fun" at someone's expense. "They deserved it" often being a popular excuse as well.
      Well...this and the subsequent responses have sure sucked the fun out of this thread.

        You're not exactly adding to the fun.

        Maybe another story about potato peelers and parole?

        :rolleyes:

    I'm so intrigued to see what this xTrav self-proclaimed "Guru" posted on the deleted thread. Hahaha, my guess is that he's probably just another guy making $1 per day (if it's that much).

    It is always darkest before dawn says me. Perhaps mods should move questionable posts to a common area. That way we can vote on what gets deleted - just saying.

      This isn't a democracy where you vote on what is allowed. The OP was rude time and again (I'm wondering if those defending him saw that second post) - threw a tantrum and deserved to be laughed at.

      Actions have consequences. When people realize that, they often modify their actions.
