Questioning a mod (will this disappear too?)

Thanks Mic for providing an example of why I find this site virtually intolerable now. If unintentionally.

The thread was moved to another location for review by the admins of the site. At this time, the admins have not moved it back into any section.

Since the original intention of the post was to provoke the mods and admins,
The intent was to have a joke with the mods, assuming them to have a sense of humor about a corner case like this. It was originally a lame joke that, IMO, became a little funnier as people contributed to it.

I'm sorry if you feel that that makes you feel your "authority" has been challenged or you've been "provoked". If so: But if you're evaluating every post (especially in Off Topic) based on whether it supports your authority or undermines it, well...

Now the OP is actually outraged that he received an infraction (after originally asking for it).

It's even hard to please people when you do exactly what they ask.
The infraction was cool (and yeah I was joking about getting it, so deserved it), it was the apparent deletion of the thread that put me off because I thought it was at least slightly intellectually funny to have the thread mutating around some narrow topic definitions. Others apparently did too. But we can't decide that anymore with the post gone, can we?

And I find your prickliness about the rules being sacrosanct to make being here a lot less fun. And I question whether that was the intent in creating those rules...is the forum about The Rules or the conversation? Was it funny when George Carlin joked about the 7 rules you can't say on the air or was he (tut-tut) undermining authority?

Apologies for wasting anyone's time. Im putting a copy of this post in my BLOG in case this one disappears as well.

    Wow! I hate to see you go on vacation from PNW Riders. You used to always contribute so much positive to this community, not sure what happened for you to make you want to change. You're always welcome here. You know my email address, if you're ever up for coffee or anything.
