    Mods,
    With all due respect, I do not see the point of deleting the threads that were deleted tonight...I thought this was supposed to be an open forum. I started two threads today, one of which was moved (with over 8,000 views and almost 150 replies, and EVERYONE was having a good time), and the other one which was just a funny post in general, which got all good replies as well.
    Only threads that are derogatory or inflammatory or get that way through replies should be removed IMHO.
    A lot of us come here during these times of updates looking for a little release and a good time, and most of the time we get it. But when the "Mod Police" start busting down doors, it is bad business. Once again IMO.
    I was reading a thread on another forum about how rude people can get here at Pre Central when they have differing opinions from a fellow poster. That is definitely true sometimes, but once again, every thread can't just be torn away for something that someone doesn't agree with.
    It would seem that maybe the mods need to be modded themselves sometimes, and not let the power go to their keyboards......

    Cheers!
    Robert

    Of course they are. He posted a thread not related to this forum. Keep this kind of stuff in the general forum. Its just a little more scrolling down. People will see the moved notice and still follow it if they want to waste any more of their time posting in it.

    geez, the mod is like 2 guys and you're just being a pain the *** by putting this thread here. It's bad enough they have to moderate 500 crybaby "Where's my 1.4 I was rumored to be promised?" threads.

    Being a mod... I would like to send thanks to the mods for
    consolidating the 1.4 threads.

    While I can appreciate the fun
    that was had, the extra threads
    are taking up space. They also
    clutter the forums.

    Most aren't being deleted, they're being merged because there are all about the 1.4 update. I agree it kills a good thread tho, because when they merge it then you have to filter through tons of replies that tho the threads are 1.4 related, really have their own subject twist. On the other hand, I've been a mod before, and all this stuff tends to clutter up the board, so I understand both sides.
    The value of knowledge is not in its possession, but in its use.

    If I'm not mistaken, the main thread that was deleted was an official, stickied thread that was seriously hijacked. I see nothing wrong with deleting a thread in this particular situation. At the same time, and more generally, I respect the site's owners' (and their appointed moderators') right to delete whatever threads they like. "Open forum" is not equal to public property.

    I like the mods, and haven't really seen any reason to complain, except that I still haven't gotten a bunny.

    Moving topics to the correct board is fair game. This is the PRE board. Posts related to WebOS Belong in the WebOS board. That is why they calll it "WebOS".
    The moderators here are amazingly tolerant. I've seen more than one thread here that seem to have tested the patience of the moderators yet they were very conservative about hittin the lock button.
