I dunno.  Whole thread didn't make sense to me.  When I come across really old posts that don't make sense I assume they are from back when this place used to be a hippy commune.
I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

The OP was clear enough. Deleted posts aren't deleted, but are simply moved to a hidden forum only admins can see. Still true now.

I've never seen a post deleted here.

Only the admins can see them.

I've never seen a post deleted here.

I have had my massive, harsh temper flare up a few times at various members and after a few minutes of going from hard boil to slow simmer, I have deleted a few posts, knowing full well, even before this thread was created that my posts were not actually deleted, only restricted from public view after my deletion.

This is the degree of absolute trust I have shown the administration of this site.  My fuck ups remain mine.
Confucius: A man who has mosquito land upon testicles finds a way to solve problems without violence. (Surely, a modern bastardization of TeH Master)

Ghandi: Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

The end result of life's daily pain and suffering, trials and failures, tears and laughter, readings and listenings is an accumulation of wisdom in its purest form. (from My heart to You! Never stop learning!)

There's no need for trust. As stated in the OP of this thread, editing the post before deleting it prevents it from being read.

I don't ever even look at the deleted posts. I don't really see the point--if they were deleted, there was a reason and so I'd rather spend my time with the posts that people thought would be worth my while.

In fact, that thread should be deleted. :orly:
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

Wouldn't that create a logical loop?

It would mean the end of the board as we know it.

I've deleted a few of my posts for reasons, 1) that they were a waste of my time or 2) of no value to anyone else!  My posts, my call! 
I don't hold grudges, you just become irrelevant.
