I've had posts deleted and even posts I believed to be substantial deleted before -- or posts I've believed to be substantial but the thread it was in was trashed -- and it's never nice and always frustrating but it's best to just get on with it and not take it so personally. The mods have rules and their reasons for removing posts. I support people's right to complain or protest especially if the post that was removed was unjust or removed for political reasons and mods should be held accountable for that if it happens but I don't think this is a big deal and the possible reasons it may have been removed have already been suggested.

PS I would urge you stay away from self moderated threads if you don't like posts being removed. Posting in them is a minefield and people can remove your post for no good reason at all. Good luck getting an explanation about them.

Did you ask theymos for permission to put the ad? That's what most people/everyone does, even if they believe it counts as substantial.

Also, why did you intentionally remove the ad from the quoted post, and avoid my question asking if you had the ad?

Because it doesn't matter.

I thank you for your post. It's only one of the best ones I've seen posted by everyone, even including me to a point.

I guess you live and you learn. Don't trust self-moderated threads.

It completely matters.

Whine whine whine, leave out details that are a clear reason, whine some more then act like everyone else is the problem

Get over it. The forum doesn't have to bend to what you think should be allowed. Either conform your posting style to fit within the very broad acceptable posting styles or just continue to advertise through other platforms.

Or here's a thought if it's the content you really care about leave out the advertisement portions.  But you won't.

You're not staff, don't post anything, you're doing nothing to resolve the issue at hand. You're more useful as a bystander.

Your issue has been resolved. You even got answers from two staff members. Lock the thread and move on.

Read the replies. Many possibilities have been given. If the post contained a link at the bottom then the thread was possibly considered advertising spam. I don't care if you write a thesis, if you've only posted it to put your link there then it's probably an advert in my opinion.

It was in the original post. If it was irrelevant, why not snippet out the part that is irrelevant than destroy the entire thread? Totally counterproductive.

It can't have been in the original post. Staff can't snip a bit out and then delete it and you get a notification about it. In the screenshot you provided it's just the "I'm curious to see..." part that has been deleted:

I haven't snipped it out. That was the reason for why it was deleted.




Therefore, if you posted it straight after the op then it was likely either considered a bump within 24 hours or unnecessary. You don't need to write a post then immediately ask what people think about it. It's both pointless, a consecutive post and a bump*, all of which are against the rules (*if it was made within 24 hours of the last post). I'm not sure what more you want from this. Just take everybody else's advice and move on. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary here.

Speculation from non-staff users isn't a definitive staff answer.

No. It was at the bottom of the post. There were no bumps. I never saw any replies before it was posted. Maybe the staff are gaming the algorithms to manually weed out posts they dislike.

I am an alt of a staff member. See my trust. Nobody other than the person who removed it can tell you for sure why it was removed and I'm still even confused as to what the problem is here because what do you mean it was at the bottom of the post? It can't have been. Staff can't take bits of your post and remove that bit and you get a notification about it. They can remove the post and that post that is removed looks pointless or probably breaks one of the other rules, but until you clarify I can't help you.

Where was the "I'm curious to see what people think about this" posted? Are you saying that little bit was removed from a bigger post, or that post was removed from one of your threads?

Was that post removed from this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5100034.msg49337995#msg49337995

Now you're straight up lying. Your very first bump was made within ~12h and I wouldn't be surprised there were others that have been deleted. tmfp noticed another one earlier in this thread.

We're talking about another thread. Not the one you refer to. Don't call me a liar until you have your facts straight.

Good to see staff here for once.

I'm saying that sentence was apart of the original post.

So you're saying staff can't edit posts, only remove?

It was removed from an other thread I started.

It was a part of the original or apart from it and in another thread? Can you post here exactly what posts you originally made and what they were supposedly edited to because I'm still confused as to what has happened. Staff can edit posts, but are you saying that a staff member must have edited your entire post then deleted it but the only bit that remained of your original was "I'm curious to see..." (but there was much more originally). So to get this straight, you had a big post, a staff member edited it so the only bit that remained was "I'm curious to see..." and then deleted it. Are you really sure that you're just not mistaken and that "I'm curious to see..." was posted after the op and not in the same thread?

The facts show that you did "do that", i.e. bump in less than 24h.

Give us a link to the "another thread" because it's not clear what you're talking about. You have only two threads: this complaint thread, and your ANN thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5100034

Most of your deleted posts (and there are many) were in your ANN thread, except one reply in "The Failure of the Internet Economy" thread, which no longer exists: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5100691.0

Did you create the "failure" thread? Go to your drafts and reconstruct the whole history so that it makes sense.

Firstly, thank you for actively trying to understand the situation.

I made a big post a few days ago. This post was removed, with the quoted part being the "post". I recall this sentence being at the very bottom of the post.

I assume that by quoting that part, they must have taken issue with it. It wouldn't make sense to quote a part that isn't a violation of the rules! I'm trying to understand why they would delete the entire post instead of just editing that part, if that was what they took issue with.
