    Removal of post

    My two posts entitled Fear of Flying ( 1 & 2 ) were removed by Leif "because Death & Destruction were not appropriate for the Lounge" particularly on Friday the 13th?????

    Where was there mention of Death & Destruction?
    There were photos of aircraft that were having apparent problems but NO mention of D&D.
    Perhaps reading something into something that was not intended to have that meaning at all, Leif.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob, posts from another Lounger that were added to your thread caused the concern. A number of the Admins and Moderators are out, so you may not get a further explanation for a couple of days.

    Re: Removal of post

    Bob - my apologies. I was a bit over-zealous with the removal which was prompted (as John said) by the addition of links to some videos which were about D & D and which had caused some concern to a fellow lounger.
    My timing wasn't particularly good either as I had to rush off immediately after and omitted to do the trimming and returning to Scuttlebutt before leaving. In hindsight, the removal of the replies was all that was necessary and your original posts have been returned to Scuttlebutt.

    Re: Removal of post

    Bob,
    My fault - I posted some links to youtube videos of plane crashes (mostly military, but some may have included death and destruction). My (obviously too subtle) point being that flying is actually the safest mode of transport.

    I see you have reposted your pictures and I believe it is correct to observe that not one of those incidents resulted in a fatality. I'll abstain from re-posting the videos, but anyone can find them on youtube.

    Re: Removal of post

    Leif,
    Apologies are gratefully accepted. I thank you for the further details provided. Indeed, there was no intent on my part to upset or cause concern to the fellow Lounger, whom ever it was.

    I suppose it was just the sudden removal of the thread for reasons that I could not discern, that upset ME. I did not see any of the following posts to that thread.
    I will have to be more selective in making my posts but it could be difficult to determine what may be thought provoking, amusing and unusual versus what may be painful or of concern to others?

    Perhaps in the future, if a particular thread or post causes concern to another Lounger, he or she should reply to the thread in the open forum , so that there would be less doubt as to the reason for that concern and also give the original poster an opportunity to either reply in kind or delete the thread on their own?

    At any rate, thanks for the reply. I think my blood pressure has return to normal now. <img src=/S/doctor.gif border=0 alt=doctor width=25 height=33> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
