First amendment specifically covers what the government cant do not a non governmental entity. Its protection from the government, not TRF.

What a hilarious thread.

Joan of Arc died so that someone who went mental at the end of his "I'm leaving TRF" gets the right to have his thread remain.

At least we think it may have been that member. It might be this other member who's just joined.

Think along the lines of Joan of Arc, Schindler, Ghandi or Mother Terasa. I’m certainly not that pious a person, but I do like to stand up for others when I can. However in this situation, I do not know if the op needed standing up for or not. Indeed he may have been a very naughty boy,
That means when i’ve been part of a thread that showed no signs of being innocuous, that is deleted, I want to know why.
However, I am in no doubt that the modulators deleted the thread for the good of the forum, but still.

Okay, I'm now convinced that our boy SamP from London is right and all the moderators and regulars are wrong.

Joan of Arc, Ghandi, Mother Theresa, and SamP. Holy cow, folks. Seriously. We need to listen to what SamP is saying.

Mods, I demand that you hand over the golden key to TRF archives and reveal all about the mystery man and deleted mystery thread for the good of all mankind.

I am with SamP in battling FOR OUR RIGHTS and AGAINST INJUSTICE that is forced upon us by private internet forums run in Australia.

Deleted thread

Well if my is of any value - this might be a good time to say that new members often eschew the sticky’s with the rules.

I’m sure the member who left us, and his thread, ran askew of those very rules.

And if a new rule is needed after a brilliant exposition was deleted, you’d see it in an update
