    I have create a few post, some of which have in my opinion been totally honesty, and unbais towards, the Treo. After a few post replies etc the threads are closed and the moderator leave a comment saying the poster has dicussed his post...... Etc.

    Has anyone else noticed this on this forum. Just a question. Post links if you have them.

    I missed the posts in question. But maybe try posting in "Other Handhelds". People praise other devices against the Treo all the time there and the threads rarely get closed.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Every once in a while, I'll see a closed post that I don't think should have been closed, but I've never seen a mod close a post just because it criticizes Treos.

    No offense, but I'm having some trouble understanding what you're trying to say. I'll skip the grammatical errors, but what exactly does "... moderator leave a comment saying the poster has dicussed his post" mean?

    You ask for links to other closed posts; how about links to yours?

    Sorry, when I said the moderator closes the thread and say ..... Etc I meant I didn't remeber the exact word.


    Thank lady treo, your comments are always welcome in my camp. You alway give great unbias, and level head advise.

    Sorry I'm posting mobile so I can't cut and paste the links, But my last to thread have been closed my ronbo2000 or something.

    I will start posting my threat to other handheld thread for now own.

    My real question is why are some threads close in the first place, when there are thousand of open thread, most asking the same questions.

    I will edit my post once I get to desktop to post all links

    I've seen this a few times, don't know if they were your threads or not. But basically, it's some guy coming in saying, "This xxx is a piece of crap. I spent blah blah blah, b!tch b!tch b!tch..."

    After awhile, it just becomes, "you're a dumb ***, if you're too stooopid to figure this device out...why don't you just go get two cans and a string..."

    I think thats why they get locked.

    Well, I did some searches, and I'm not sure I would call the thread in question 'unbaised towards the Treo.' Bascially all you did was complain that the
    Treo wasn't very good, and other devices were better. And you said it over and over, without really offering any specifics. Personally, I probably wouldn't have closed the thread, as there are others here that are equally meaningless that are allowed to go on far longer. Nonetheless, letting it continue wouldn't really add anything of value.

    Some would call it *****ing, some would call it being unbias. Unbias meaning not taking anysides for any specific device "the treo", if you call this *****ing or un productive then I must be in the wrong place. No treo or any smartphone is perfect. Nothing is perfect period, and discussing it fault should express concern, and inspired improvement, not *****ing.

    What is a Unproductive thread, and who "moderatore" determine why a thread is and for what real reason. A thread on treo central talking about muslims negativly sees upto one thousand post, and last for week "basically people being racist, and facist against muslim" and that thread stays open, while someone point comparing the treo browser to a sidekick 2 and Pocket internet explorer and pointing out the treo flawes, is closed after less then 8 post.

    You should be more offended on what is actually going on by these Muslims killing people, not a thread in a cell phone off topic forum.

    Muslim thread=interesting off topic and timely conversation
    Treo topics that have been burned out a billion times=nothing of real value and definitely not interesting to the masses on this forum.

    Just and observation and MO.

    Looks like another thread hijacked by politics when that wasn't even what the OP was talking about!!

    Meyerweb, I think what he really did mean was "against", not "towards". I could tell by the gist of the post. That's why I mentioned to post in "Other Handhelds".

    being a MOd on several big name sites, i understand why thread and posts can be deleted. and there is always a member upset about it. sometimes the members dont understand why a thread/post had to be removed. members arent fully aware of some of the rules or things that for whatever reason cant be posted and discussed. its no big deal. move on and accept it.
