it is pretty heavy handed - and there isn't anything to say why my post was deleted.  I wasn't even saying anything bad - just explaining the diff between corp run boards and private run boards.

Some days are more fun than others.  Maybe this time next year we will not even remember the old forums. 

They seriously need to bring back spell check, I need it bad.

I just found spell check when I hit submit on that last post.  Am I having fun yet?

Many people often refer to the fact that they miss the old version of the forum which included "Viewpoints". But, technically, doesn't "Community Chat" fulfill that same function, generally?

 

I think "Community Chat" is actually a broader category even than "Viewpoints". The former seems to imply that anyone may discuss anything they wish (within guidelines) including adding their "viewpoint" to the mix.

 

The latter (and now late-), "Viewpoints", seemed more specific in its implication that one had to have a point-of view or an opinion on something. It didn't ever seem quite the right fit for those who just wanted to discuss a myriad of topics (with their opinions included). "Viewpoints" seemed narrower in its focus as it seemed to invite more attitude or a specific opinion (as one even posed a question or wrote about a topic).

 

I don't particularly "miss" Viewpoints and Community Chat seems to fulfill that same niche only in a broader and clearer manner.

Hi, @cody2 and @biancardi!  All of my posts (except wishing all a goodnight) are gone, too.  I guess respectful disagreement and innocuous explanations aren't allowed here.  I agree, it's excessively heavy-handed in my opinion.

 

I wasn't here 10 years ago...  was it this heavily censored then, too?
