But Ulf,
I just realized that the post was somewhat old and had alot of posts like 26 or so. Why delete it so late. There were a good numbers of posts from bartenders as well. I don't feel so bad for myself, But for others who I feel I had provided a forum to say stuff and you took that all away in one swoop. Why Ulf, Why not?

I'm not sure Ulf actually deleted it, but it's possible that the 27th comment was out of line: or it was starting to head that way. If it's any consolation, I had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago.

I understand where you're coming from, as do most of the moderators.

Really, we do get it.

But at the end of the day, if we feel that a discussion is starting to turn ugly, we reserve the right to remove it.

I'm sure you'd feel the same way if you gave party and people started to argue loudly. It's not personal at all: we enjoy your posts, and hope you continue to make more. But it's the way these sorts of issues are handled. We even say so right in the MD forum.

Ok. I guess if it was in our collective interest I'll be okay with the decision and not blame Ulf for it anymore.
