Testing the Forum

I have sent two tests to the forum administrators, using the box that says "Alert us." Each time, I used my real name and email address. First, I asked about gaston street's post this morning about deletions - I said that I had no problem with the post, but wanted to know why the other posts had disappeared. Then I sent one alerting them to the next posting - from the reputed stevereed. Again, I said in my message that I was just testing to see if sending the alert meant the posting were automatically deleted. It was not deleted.

Conclusion - deletions are not automatic, but occur with the intervention of someone at PennLive, for reasons unstated and unknowable except to him or her.

This is just silly. Maybe we should just start posting on another forum on pennlive to see what happens. Under different names with different emails. We'll have to be stealth like Jones123, Jones 1234, Jones 12345, Jones 123456 and Jones1234567.

This is incredible! Who does this guy think he is? He's just the wizard of oz, who is nothing once the curtain is drawn back.

He's far from the Wizard of Oz. He's a jack ass. That's who he is. And he's probably jerking off as he deletes stuff, too.

Sorry. I won't post like that again. I just had to because I CAN HERE!

LOL!

HA HA

I bet he looks like Milton from Office Space.

And I bet he farts at his desk. A lot.

I promised no censorship. Besides, that was very funny. It was how I pictured him, too. Must be a very sticky keyboard.

Ok, update.

I can use Jones1234 but none of the others.

I'm sure that will only last a few hours though, till they catch up with me.

This is amazing. I just created a new hotmail account and a new screen name at pennlive and can't log in.

Do you think that Milton blocked my effing computer?

They probably blocked your IP address or something.

How much trouble are they going to? How afraid are they of criticism? Or is this just some punk who would really rather be writing computer virus code??
