I too have been experiencing what I see as unnecessary moderating which seems to me to be driven more by opinions of my posts than by forum rules. Mostly I ignore it, but taking time to write a careful post just to see it disappear immediately can get wearing.

Can you see the original if a post is edited rather than deleted?

Not only deletions. I got points as well. No explanation as to why, even when I requested an explanation.

In a spirit of openness. moderators should be required to disclose why they delete certain things, so that, if necessary, they can be challenged. If they don't like that then they shouldn't be moderators
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.

Totally agree with that.

agree fully,

Also why are you accused of arguing, when you are just expressing your opinion, that someone doesn't like.

There seems to have been a lot of posts deleted recently. In fact a whole thread had many posts deleted and was subsequently locked in the early hours of this morning. I completely understand and agree that the thread should have been stopped, but I think I lost valid posts when it was pruned before being locked.
