The Shambles BS: The wisdom of Mudcat's 'silent deletion' (39) RE: BS: The wisdom of Mudcat's 'silent deletion' 20 Apr 07

None of the examples you have provided show the deletion of an entire thread as you wrongly claim, Shambles.

The thread linked to here was 'silently deleted' by persons unknown when a link to a published local newspaper article was posted to it.

The article was a factual account (with all sides having their say) of a court hearing which explained that the cancellation was due to concerns expressed by the police about the event's organiser.

That thread was later replaced, less a few posts which were deleted from it. It was then closed - with the following editing comment inserted.

Miskin 2007 has been cancelled. I'm closing this thread because history has shown that there is no way to discuss a topic like this at Mudcat in a peaceable manner. I have deleted the discussions of this matter that have taken place, and I will not permit further Forum discussion of the Cancellation of Miskin 2007. Nonetheless, I think it is important that the full story be told. This source tells the story.
Please note that I have some question about the credibility of the story because I found essentially the same story with two different bylines, purporting to come from two different newspapers. However, it does appear that the stories are at least partially true. I have invited Miskin Man to respond if he wishes, but I do not intend to allow Forum discussion of the matter. Thanks. -Joe Offer-
