It was not me also. Having followed your posts I too am bit puzzled why you have been posted out of the class room. Am also currently given time off from another forum.

I never follow any posts minute by minute to keep up with the same posters in a thread.

Is it possible that an offending post can be deleted so quickly that there is no visible record of it?

My guess would be, only if a computer is doing it.

G*d only knows. I have been banned after a poster complained about me complaining about them and then he/she came back crowing. They are still here. Let the mods do their job.

That doesn't count, because it was finished before he was 16.

Let me test that. However, how would I tell you if I had?

I wrote something so memorable on R & N that I've forgotten what it was.

The post vanished! Gasp. All that work. But I wasn't given a rest, though probably worthy of it, but suspect that I have now reached the Douglas Adams status of 'Mostly Harmless' and ordered back into my basket in the kindest of tones.

Same here, though my suggestion (that was immediately removed) was later repeated by a professional aviator - and it was allowed to remain.

Sort of 'do' a Patrick Moore?

He said that after his death he had arranged for a group of his friends to meet for dinner at a certain time on a certain day and that they should lay unlit candles on the table in suitable holders. He said that if he were in the afterlife he would light the candles at the agreed time.

I don't know how it went, but I don't recall hearing anything about it so maybe he's not in the afterlife, or forgot to take his matches.

You could do a variation on that - posting in a certain thread at a certain time?

Why should they explain their actions to those they wish to silence?
