Brother Dave. Let it slide. I have had a few posts deleted in the past and I am certain that more will be deleted in the future.

While I find it inappropriate to have threads deleted, it is important for admin to at least state the reason why a particular post was deleted.

There are many times when they are justified as a result of posts not having links provided and ones which admin might deem provocative or racist in nature and as such, they make the final call. 

It’s best to lay low sometimes and let things slide after all, we are not paid members and as such admin reserves the right to modify or delete posts.
