Why is it that some of the most serious repercussions of posting on this board, namely having comments deleted or being banned, can happen without notice or explanation, while even the most benign photo uploaded gets a system notification? Seems like a serious omission to me.
Let me explain; for the second time in as many months I’ve had a comment deleted. In this case, others have responded and even supported the comment, which I found to be fully within the bounds of decorum (admittedly unlike some of my other comments). But the deleting isn’t the issue, it’s the lack of notification that I find most troubling; in a previous instance, I had posted something that was deleted but because I wasn’t notified I thought I had a post failure so I reposted the same comment and was then suspended for a month for reposting.
Point is, in a comment system that seems so sophisticated as to track and notify about so many things, why is a person who is judged out of bounds not even notified when a comment is deleted by a mod, if not given a warning or a reason?
