    I received this alert this AM, and I'm having a bit of a problem figuring it out. Please explain if you grasp it.
    Thanks!!

    "Your post in the thread PHOTO: Man Refuses to Tip Bartender, Leaves This Note Instead was deleted. Reason: Quoteing Deleted Post"

    The problem is, how can one quote from a deleted post. Now I'll admit that I lack a lot in totally grasping all this "puter" stuff, but if a post is deleted ( not available to see -- right??), then how is it possible to QUOTE IT???

    I would imagine it was deleted after you quoted it. (I'm staff on another forum and have deleted posts for this reason.)

    Correct questdriven. JWP quoted the photo that was later deleted. As such his post was removed for the same reason that the original was.Thumbsup

    It's a roundabout way of showing how the corrective action progressed.

    Not neccessarily for the same reason. He could have disagreed with the deleted post. But, the post he referred to was deleted so, the follow on was deleted.
