Thread Deleted?
« on: April 05, 2012, 05:34:58 PM »
Hi...I started a fun thread about something that has been in the news a lot over the pats few days, and noticed it has been locked. Would anyone be able to shed any light on this, as people seemed to find it interesting?

It either got eaten by the same monster that eats socks in the dryer, or the topic was deemed inappropriate for the forums. Or it got moved... I have no idea, those are just the usual culprits.

What is the pats? 
If the topic was political in any way in any country, it will be locked/deleted.  If it's religious, or selling something, also locked/deleted.


I believe there is a more detailed list somewhere in the stickies in the administration posts.  I didn't see your thread so I have no idea what it was and I don't know what pats is.

Ooh you probably meant Sam not Pat. 


I can see that thread getting derailed pretty badly.  Plain jane complaining that women hate her because she is beautiful?  Yeah very badly.

   I really don't know if this was your thread but someone recently posted a UK news story that was political.

I think pats was just a typo of "past".

What does Sam refer to? And why Sam and not Pat? (I know the original was a typo but it seems like you can relate it to something)

When I read the posted link of the found thread, it was a news story about Sam. Sam/Pat nicknames of popular names.  I didn't realize I was wrong on both counts and it was past. lol

that makes sense. I was thinking there is some group out there called the Sam and was wondering how they are related to Pats.
