    I am curious about the thread removed on sunday.
    The thread started out as a question about handling on a 08 Heritage and evolved into a criticism of a common practice of deleting posts by a member here.
    The posts are often adversarial in nature and sometimes involves posting short-lived, brief, aggressive and derogatory comments about another member, a pissweak and gutless practice, or they are more expansive, meandering opinion pieces which are later removed.
    When a response to these comments was forthcoming, a 'Quote Source Removed' box appears and otherwise there is a hole in the continuity of the thread, and the readability is destroyed. It devalues every other contribution.
    A few members here posted comments disapproving of this practice.
    The comments were not a criticism of forum rules but questions about accommodating this practice.
    The practice is weak, selfish, ignorant and anti-forum.

    I noticed it had gone as well,

    I agree it had gone off track especially given the OP had also deleted their posts, but certainly no worse than other threads on here (spokes for example) and there were certainly no personal attacks on any other members unlike some other threads that still exist.

    Similar comments regarding deleted posts were also made in the Whistleblower/Christian Porter thread and it's still around, complete with quote source removed posts.

    I fully understand admin doesn't have to justify their actions to members and if we don't like it here we can leave, the terms and conditions are very clear. I'm certainly not in that category and hope it's not that drastic, I'm just a bit confused by maybe some inconsistency in this case, thanks.

    The thread in question went off track on the first post. 
    It was a bullshit question from speedy. He gets off on any arguments he can start. 
    He will be sitting in front of his computer with a stiffy .  He started another bullshit  thread the other day which hasnt been deleted.
