I realize that the Macrumors moderators will remove posts that are inappropriate (which is fine) but I'm sort of curious about the specifics of how this is done. Earlier today, I responded to someone in a discussion and my post is now gone. I don't think it was particularly inappropriate. The original poster made some disparaging comments about Apple and their products and how they were going down--sort of the doom-n-gloom stuff from the 90s. My response was a tongue-in-cheek "You forgot the part where the sky falls." That post is now gone. I realize that it could be taken, in a very roundabout way, as a personal attack, although I think it's pretty clear that I'm just responding to the over-the-top negativity. Then it occurred to me that the OP might have been a troll and his post being removed may have triggered the removal of all responses to it. I searched the thread for his post and it appears to be gone now too. Any mods want to clarify this for me? Is that how it works? Did my post go away with his or did I cross the line somehow with a Chicken Little reference?
