mrbol,

You wrote, Well - I went back here to delete my response to this post and found that someone had beat me to it. Thanks. :)

Actually, you can't edit posts on these boards. Don't ask me why; but TMF doesn't seem to want you to change what you say after people have already read it.

Unfortunately, that post you mentioned included an offensive and rude personal attack on the previous poster. As such it was probably reported to TMF and pulled. Unfortunately, it probably also violated your agreement with TMF, so you'll probably recieve a warning email tomorrow after a human has had a chance to review the post. Too many in quick succession and your account may be suspended or eventually revoked. This is one of the mechanisms TMF uses to try to keep posts civil and to remove offensive posters that enjoy flaming others. Spamming -- speech with a commercial self-interest -- is also forbidden, as is direct copyright violation.

If you catch yourself doing something like that in the future, report the post yourself as quickly as possible -- that's probably the only way to get TMF to delete a post and you might be able to avoid a run-in with the "TMF police."

- Joel
