People cannot find/access them again to read the replies! - and in my case I suspect that some of those replies explained why the post was expired/spammed which would have prevented me (and others?) trying to post again.
With regard to this thread: http://hotukdeals.com/item/253657/why-is-my-post-deleted
It was very nice of people to reply, but again what is the point if I cannot access the thread again to read it because someone has expired and locked it?
It was full of valid responses that I needed to see - and perhaps others.
If I search for the thread, I cannot find it. And I cannot see reference to it in my user settings page.
(Thanks for the replies BTW - I can now see where I went wrong with my original deal and I should have re-checked my e-mails. Apologies. )
Unfortunately the only reason I saw these replies was because I used the back button then refresh on my browser to check my sanity (again) to ensure that I had indeed posted.
If this is happening to other users I can see frustration happening for both users and Mods.
Can something be done about this please? There is little point offering advice or comments then making the post unreadable/unfindable.
Hope this helps as I love the site.
