    A few days ago I listed a post which I am unable to locate now. I assume someone took offense to it, but I was never informed that it was (or why it was) being removed. Is this normal procedure?

    I found this quote on the board rules, but I don't think it applies to my post:

    "Now, new policy. Mods are only deleting the absolute utter CRAP that goes on in these boards... I am talking the Porn, the hateful stuff, so on... if it's just mean, or ill intentioned, or perhaps you meant something, but it's being taken wrong, the abiguous stuff... that will recieve an edit. The post itself will remain, and the moderator will put something to the effect of:

    EDITED BY A MODERATOR: YOU WILL BE CONTACTED VIA PM FOR REASONS... BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH...."

    You should have been notified that your post was deleted. Maybe it was an oversite by the mod that deleted it.
    Anyway, your post was deleted because it was a matter that should be handled privately. I will ask that the person in charge of the auction contact you.

    Ozzy, just so you will know...I had attempted several times to rectify this privately.

    Is this posted rule no longer in effect?

    He asked Tre to send the plants and he said that he tried ot send him PM's several times but it did nothing, the plant wasnt sent.

    Hortman, I agree withy ou for choosing to do it like this if it didnt work privatley.

    And Tre......just send the plant and save us all the trouble.

    Gosh, you're right. The whole thread is gone. My post in that thread was deleted too and all I did was give Hortman information to the site where Tre sold his CPs so he might have another means by which to contact him. That's extremely odd as I most certainly do not recall anything hatefull, mean, "ill intentioned", or pornographic in that thread.

    Suggestion Hortman, call it a day and chalk it up to experience. I'll replace the plant with something comparable given you were bidding on them for a children's educational program. I got caught with my pants down this spring too. Long story but somebody (not the person you are dealing with) sent me a list that I could select plants from and I sat down with the teacher at the school with the list and we picked plants to order for the kids to grow in the classroom as well as in newly created outdoor bogs. I forwarded the list to the person who basically said no problem but a few weren't available and he'd get back to me. Numerous e-mails back and forth with the seller assuring me he would get back to me every time with one excuse or another. Many months later, I realized school was going to be out for summer break and I still didn't have the plants so I basically stated I needed the plants via both a phone call and one last e-mail. Both my phone call and last e-mail were ignored- real professional. I had counted on purchasing plants to donate from that person for educational programming and let me tell you it was no fun trying to purchase them elsewhere at that time of year when stock was low because other orders were being filled. Hortman, plants shipped now might fry due to the heat so give me until this fall to get something out to you but next spring would probably be best. Send me your full name and a mailing address again in a PM. What was it you bid on anyway and I will try to give you something similar? By the way, how is the auction plant and all the "extras" I sent you for your educational programming doing?

    Hortman, that's great that you tried to take care of it yourself. But if that doesn't work the next step is to notify a mod (as it has been said) and we will help you come to a solution. The next step is NEVER to post publicly. That's why your post was deleted. Sorry you didn't get a PM from whichever mod took care of it. As most people here know, there are some glitches with the PMing system. Ozzy has already told you that he will have the head person of the auction contact you to help solve this.... The edditing part of that rule goes for if parts of your post need to be eddited. If the whole post is unappropriate then it will be removed from the visable forums, as this one was.
    Thanks for understanding. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
