Hi, DT!

FA = Fool Alert, or "reporting a post," required to get any post pulled. If TMF agrees (always did for me when I asked my own to be pulled) then the post goes < POOF > as if never existed. That is why you can't get to the post linked by the OP in this thread, and from perusing that thread it is obvious he stooped to calling people filthy names. Shame, shame.

Since we're on this kick, I'll tell you something else. When I did FA that post by the Ghost Poster, I came back in another thread the next day and told the world I did so, and why. If you have access to HG, it may still be there on the Short-term trading board. If not, I probably FA's my own post and had it pulled. It was entitled something like "On Lies, Cowardice and Censorship" or something like that.

The only thing worse than mean people is censorship. Sometimes the latter is required to get rid of the former because as humans, we are sometimes stupid. :)

If you're gonna FA someone, at least have the guts to stand up and tell them, and tell them why. That's Raptor's policy. Are you in good hands?

Good to "see" you, DT.

Dan
