Do Mods have to delete an entire post of mine because of one "bad" word?

As the other thread is locked. Just wondering if the mods can lighten on the moderation load a bit. A post of mine was deleted because of one "unwelcome" word. And claims that I was trolling (I feel) were very inappropriate - I was responding directly to a post.

No response required as I doubt anything will come of it. Just wanted to make a request.

Have you tried to PM the mod for an explanation on their reasoning? How about TomRFD?

I don't think having one post deleted warrants the creation of a thread asking the moderation team to lighten how they moderate. My recommendation to you would be to simply try to move on from this...but if you need some resolution, than please, do PM the mod or TomRFD.

Judging by the number of issues you seem to be having, I don't think it's out of line to suggest you take some time to review the rules and guidelines. You are a new user after all and if you want the team to engage in a little introspection, perhaps you should do the same.

If after doing so you still aren't happy, I would PM the mod in question politely and ask. If you're still unhappy then you can always PM TomRFD. This shouldn't be a constant problem though.

It's very rare that we'll delete an entire post just for 1 or even more inappropriate words assuming the content of the post otherwise is fine. In this particular case, and as you already mentioned, it was judged to be trolling (which was actually the primary reason for the delete if you review the PM notification you received). If you're unsure why it was considered trolling you can message the moderator who deleted the post or myself.
