Deleting a moved post?

How does one delete a post moved into a thread I do not wish to be part of?

The now post, which had been a new thread, is now in the thread: Another Tamil ship on its way to our shores.

It's heading: Author Goran Simic watches the news of the migrants and recalls his own struggle to call Canada home.

It contains a small quote from the news article in The Globe & Mail with a link to the article.

The new thread I had started with this as the OP was: Lessons from Sarajevo for Tamil refugees

It has nothing to do with the debate about what to do about the alleged Tamil ship or ships supposedly headed for Canada and, IMHO, has been inappropriately placed.

I have no idea why it was moved and to where, but I don't want it there. As it has been deemed not appropriate for a thread of its own for whatever reasons which I am not questioning, that's up to those who run this forum, IMO it should have just been deleted.

So... How do I delete what has been changed into a post - there is no 'edit' button available?

TIA

First off, you send a PM so you're not publicly ragging on Mods and Admin

hey BCool.... I'm on and checking posts and stuff right now, but I will admit my dog tired brain is not up to untangling what all is and isn't covered in the Tamil thread, and how your post links in.... I don't know who you sent a PM to, but, chances are they're not 'on shift' right now either. If you don't mind, I'll take a closer look in the morning, k?

It's merely a case of deleting a post. I didn't write it with the intent of posting it there, so simply deleting it would be the best solution under the circ's, no? If it had an 'edit' button available I would have taken care of it myself.

I was just amazed at the hissy fit that was thrown, over where your thread on the topic of Tamils ended up. Which in my opinion, was the appropriate place.

I can just picture the distress it caused you...

I'm not sure how "Wow" plays into your idea of courteous, but I imagine anything I say, upsets you. Hence why you refuse to answer direct questions, when I pose them to you.

I'm absolutely sure this smilie represents your present feelings quite well. At least your honest about that.

If that was your opinion then that adds even further weight to my objections to its inappropriate placement. I am amazed at your amazement.

Relished the idea of it causing me distress you mean.
Sorry to disappoint you. All it caused was disdain for the lack of even the courtesy of advising me that the thread was being trashed and why.
And don't go to all that bother of uploading videos for me, with a mind like yours I definitely would not watch anything you found entertaining.

merely an adynaton observation.

It's what you crave, all who read your nonsensical attempts at bullying and harrassing recognize your
behaviour for what it is: a common Usenet and forum phenomena, and pop you into Ignore mode within hours of their arrival as newbies, as I did.
I wonder how many hundreds of those who view this forum as guests & wish to
subscribe turn away and search for a better place where you & your ilk aren't
permitted to harrass using their blustering false IT persona's. Don't bother,
hypothetical....

You never asked me a reasonably, courteously phrased question, or
any question, before I decided you were beyond the pale and put you into Ignore
mode.

Now that's such a woosy, pathetic attempt. Besides, what would you know about honesty. That's hypothetical too, the answer is patently obvious.

Your IT persona is slipping:

Of course it would.

Of course you are, hissy fits are likely common in your world.

The fact that you don't understand the correlation between disdain and distress, makes this even funnier.

Undoubtedly true.

Ya, I can see how your observations would be considered extreme hyperbole.

Yes, I can see I'm on your iggy list, at least when the hard questions come out.

You mean don't don't bother, lest yours gets questioned Bcowl. How's the Timmies this morning?

Yes, I see that.

Yes, that is exactly what that was, a woosy attempt.
Quote:

It sure is, you have nothing, so the best way to attack, is on a level, where to squash you, I would have to endanger my privacy.

Go figure.

Thankfully I've met people off the net, from this forum and others, in real life, I have had long phone conversations with a couple of others. The funny the thing is, the common comment is, you're just the same in real life as you are on the net. But if it makes you feel better about your facade, feel free to run with it. You'll only embarrass yourself.

Yours was seen though almost instantly.




I eagerly await your next lame attempt at shutting me.

Does this fall under the heading of "making a mountain out of a molehill"?

Hence my "Wow". Which of course was another "Mountain out of a molehill" in the making apparently. Who knew?

Good to see I'm not the only one that saw that.

The fact that you just made it publicly obvious that you don't would be amusing, but this is all so predictably tedious.

Back into the Ignore bucket with you.... PLOP!

Yes I would imagine having your *** handed back to you would become tedious.

How do you think I feel, having to hand it to you all the time?

Yes, back into hiding. Good call after allowing me to thoroughly embarrass you, so terribly.

Thanx for coming out though. I now look forward to many flame bait ridden troll posts from the safety of your "Happy place". Bookmark this post, so when you see me mention this prediction in the future, you won't have to look so hard.

No it doesn't. Deleting portions of posts, entire posts or moving posts can alter perceptions and apparent meanings. It has been done to me and is one of the reasons that I don't come here much anymore.

I'm not complaining. The mods can do whatever they like and we as posters can like it or lump it. Obviously, Bcool cares about it which is his/her prerogative.

Just a question, do you fancy constantly filling the forum with threads on the same subject?

I don't mind the umpteen threads you've created on aboriginal issues....but fancy?? That's too strong of a word. I really don't care either way. People are free to create threads on whatever they choose.

Why do you ask. Does it cause you distress and/or disdain?

Ya but I was politely asked not, as it was messy and redundant. Hence why I asked that the thread linked to in the present thread of mine on that subject, be unlocked. It was given the green light to start that thread as it is, because the original couldn't be unlocked without great difficulty.

True enough.

Curiousity.

I think you are confusing me with somebody that cares. Obviously I'm not nearly as interested as you as to what threads people start and why. If it intrigues you so much perhaps you can be a mod.

I'm sorry to hear it has been done to you also.
What I cared about and wanted corrected was the placement of my OP thread post into a mostly racially charged, biased and hate filled thread.
That I was not and have not been notified as to why my thread was trashed I'll lump, but take note of future behaviour to be expected and visit here accordingly, as you say. It is the second thread of mine that has disappeared BTW, no explanation for that either. Hmmm.... And I haven't even reached a 100 posts yet since joining! A bit harsh on newbies...

Ya, I can see you don't care at all.

Except that I asked the question BEFORE Cannuck's comment.

You asked twice: 1 hour ago before Cannuck replied.

You asked the question again: I was just asking a question?" 48

Now drop it!

Just so you don't waste your time trolling here you two, you'll have to find another newbie to try and harrass off CC. Logging out and going to play on the beach now.
