deleted thread

I had made a thread named "tear down Guantanamo" which was deleted without further explanation from the moderators which seems very wierd to me. I see this as an unjustified act since i cannot recall having violated any forum rules. I would be thankful for an explanation since im going to repost that thread, so for any mistakes i would like to aviod from doing them anew.

regards

I would assume that the mod(s) thought it would be a redundant thread. Generally, you're supposed to run a search for already-existing threads related to your topic. If you don't get any results or if your thread is different enough, then you go ahead and make it. Otherwise, you're supposed to use existing an thread to make your post.

At first i posted in the Afganistan thread "Future of Afgan mission in NATO's hands" where i mentioned that my post may be slightly off topic but since Afganistan and Guantanamo are connected with the "war on terror" i thought that might be just ok. My post topic was a global online petition of Amnesty International against Guantanamo. I dont think it is an redundant topic although i admit, my post (and later my thread) was to raise awareness and not start a discussion (for which there are already appropriate threads!). However, the post got deleted and i got warning points from Konc for being off-topic which was a bit harsh from my perspective but its ok I suppose since it was kinda off-topic. So i started a thread with the same topic since thats the way to go and checking the violations list i dont see a rule against starting new threads as long as you dont post an inappropriate link or content.

Therefore i see deleting my thread without giving me a notice of the offence i have commited and without subsequently giving me warning point as a rather disturbing act.

So, either tell me what wrong i did or acknowledge that deleting my thread was an unjust action.

Im waiting for a respond from Konc as he has assured me to look into this matter. Im hoping to repost the thread soon.

peace

The thread was temporarily moved out of sight by a moderator, and has now been moved back to RGD.
