I have said nothing of squirrels though!
There is popcorn aplenty, but I put hot sauce on it.
I'm actually a somewhat likable person once you get over the fact I'm a complete a**hole!

*runs away with the new batch of hot butter popcorn laughing maniacally*

Posted:Ok a couple of things:

First, I dont think people should go back and change their original posts, as this changes the meaning of the post, and all subsequent replies. This is a mandatory agreement on many sites, for example - do not edit your post after it has already been responded to.

As to what happened?

Its pretty simple really.

The thread started out as one asking support for the poor unfortunate people of Hati, who had just experienced one of the worst earthquakes in history. Then it turned from a plea for compassion, into a justification for selfishness. In the process, the original intent of the thread was completely destroyed. So, its no wonder the thread got deleted.

Posted:Welcome back Stone wave

well here I disagree on both accounts.

As the title of this thread indicates:

- a thread seems to be the party of its creator. wink

In case I don't like the way the party is run, could I go back to the OP and abort the entire thread by deleting the OP? If the answer is "yes" (and as such not intended from the admin) it should/could be changed.

- an OP can (and in cases even 'should') be updated, as well as posts that were already responded to.

why like this? Because: maybe I didn't choose an inappropriate wording for the OP, chose the wrong title or the topic as such had already been touched but not in another context, because my later comment has been poorly worded, been off topic, included a personalized attack or offense ..... etc.

imo it's perfectly legal to edit a post (and I (thankfully) even recall that you once asked me to reconsider (and change) one).

- the Haiti thread (as I recall) started with: "guys, something terrible happened there and I donated a piece of my cake, did you also donate?", after which others said "no - and I wouldn't, because of...." (I for my part recall having said: "and even if I would have, I wouldn't post it here and if being directly asked I would lie about it, because it might prompt you to donate (more)." Other people had different reasons - and I found it perfectly within HoP posting guidelines to elaborate why.)

Threads often move away from the original intent because a topic needs to be looked at from various angles. that's perfectly alright imo.

- if THAT has been causing its deletion - imnsho - it's the wrong motif and would rightfully deserve some spank or at least smearing vegemite all over the responsible person... wink

However: from there two threads stem. - (international) and - domestic aid... that's a good thing (imo) though the title of the former would include the latter.

"Selfishness" (again imo) is not as much 'a blemish of one's own character' but 'a sign of undeveloped capacities'. To discuss their origin is perfectly valid (and even necessary).

I would invite you to participate hug

Posted:Hi Tom, thanks for the welcome blush

You disagree with me on both counts?

Well, I never would have believed that .lol. wink

We all have our opinions, and you make some good points.

Thanks for the invitation. I have new staff, got it from me mate Rick, so the plan is for more practice and less posting smile

Cheers hug
