I have been a bit anxious about the issue, too. Simply because it's eating into what I have always perceived to be the fundamental idea of the forum (please do correct me if I'm wrong): to give people a platform on which to ponder the proper etiquette in various situations, find out whether they - according to the feedback on the forum - acted in an acceptable manner. What I especially used to love was that people could disagree politely, and give polite, well-meant suggestions on how to handle possible similar events in the future. I guess grown-up people know everybody makes mistakes, nobody should be ranted, naturally. But not doing anything about one's mistakes once they have been pointed it out is far less adult. The removal of certain posts recently is strictly against this. Naturally, downright trolling, provocation and discrimination must be handled appropriately, but the recent action has not been all about that. I hope this will be corrected, so the forum could be used as a tool for developing oneself, and helping others do so.
