Deleting threads ?
Posted by Wirraway on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 4:43 AM

My post on the Revell Hanebau Flying Saucer seems to have disappeared.  I knew that Mods could lock a thread, but to delete it completely seems a bit over the top.  Can one of the mods confirm this is what happened ?

Yes. It was removed. The language being expressed by some of the respondents was unnecessarily aggressive. I could have picked and chosen among the thread to selectively remove the worst offenders, but I don't have time. We received complaints about how the thread was being addressed. In response to Tojo72, it's not that I have anything against the original intent of the post, but when it becomes offensive and we receive complaints, it's gone. Simple as that. You can try reposting, Wirraway. It is an interesting story.

According to some other forums, Revell is expected to release it again with revised box text.

Just checked my emails and found one from FSM stating the topic had been moved to the dungeon. Thanks for clearing that up Aaron. It seems that some folk just can't play nice !
