I should have mentioned this before, but I was utterly shocked and offended when the poll that I made--which I asked you if I could make, and was not even remotely out of line in any conceivable way--was summarily locked by a mod. No message, no explanation, just a "No thanks", which was more confusing than if the mod had said nothing at all. I don't think I am peculiar in feeling that a post locked or deleted without explanation is hurtful and offensive.
I am not really experienced with the whole forum scene, so I don't know if this kind of thing is common, but as I said, I was shocked, as I know there was nothing at all wrong with my post. Further, I felt fearful that if I contacted the mod to ask for an explanation, not matter how politely, that I might be punished in some way, so I didn't.
Does anyone know if this kind of thing happens often on this forum? Or on forums in general?
Because those reading this can not know what to think unless they have seen the poll for themselves, the link is:
