Could be just a Flook

The "deletion" problem could be just a flook. Sometimes weird things happen with posts. On ALL boards. From what I've been able to observe on other boards/forums/sites/, an offensive post usually gets you a private message from the operator/admin./owner and you'll know if you're being censored. Some sites are more "open" than others. Some sites permit profanity. Others do not. This one seems pretty straight, which if you know upfront you can deal with. By the site name, it gives the impression of being an "official" site which would for good business purposes not be able to tolerate a lot of offensive comments. I've read in the FAQ's that the system has an automatic editing (read that as "censoreship") of "certain" words (read that as being politically correct). Some direct mail forums, like the Harley e-mail Digest (HED) for example, intentionally place offensive terminology at the end of each digest to cause corporate censoreship software to reject the incoming mailing.

That being said, I'll specifically address your concern about censoreship. I've been to this site for the last several days and looked at the posts. I've seen yours. Didn't read anything that I believed was so offensive as to warrant deletion. Indeed, I posted a message complaining about a local dealership overcharging for a bike. I "censored" myself by using the cute little **** marks for the term I believe accurately described the dealer involved. Nothing happened to my post. So, for what it's worth, I think you've just experienced one of those weird things that happens. Don't be too concerned about it.

Since this thread is 8+ years old I'm sure they got it resolved.

What if I type in asterisks and one of the mods replaces them with profanity ..... is that still censorship ???? :hmmm:
I have'nt been able to figure out how the **** to do that yet. When I type in **** all I get are these ****ing asterisks. I will see if I can get one of the other ****ers who help run this ****ing place to help me figure out how the **** to do it.

Wow

I understand that this is a public site, and the need to censor for the children's sake may be needed. But............does anyone think that kids would have any interest in what is here? Realy? If I were 12 or even 17 I would be far too busy chasing girls to even bother.

At 12 years old, I had allready rebuilt my first engine. A B&S 3.5 HP minibike.
At 15 I built a 225 slant six in a '63 Dodge Dart.
At 17 I built 383 stroker with ported and polished heads, full cam, 10.5-1 compression, Holley street eliminator carb (1250CFM) hooker headers. all this in a '71 GMC suburban. If you know what a Chevy 383 stroker is, you know what it's capable of...:xhere:
For some reason I had girls coming to me.

But to keep in line with the OP...There are some adults who are offended by profanity.
I just don't understand why some people think that they are supposed to cuss because they are adults.
