Works in theory! Practice? That's something else

Nope, eliminating the "YOU" word from a post tends to keep the conversation focused on the topic rather than the person which helps to avoid misunderstandings. I'm not here to talk about people, I'm here to talk about issues and possibly help people along the way.So in summary, avoiding the "YOU" allows an individual to escape from being held to "account"
It was on me, 100%. I broke the T&Cs and they did what they had to. (BTW, I did have a backup that I started with, but deleted it after successfully posting.)...well that's on "YOU"... oops sorry......
But I didn't lose value, they did.
The point was, had they edited and deleted the offense (a URL) they could still have had the value of the post (lots of first-hand data/experience nowhere else to be found which is why I posted it). It doesn't hurt me to lose a post, I wrote it to benefit others and that's the real value that was lost. They also lost all future posts. I even find myself doing that here now.
Posts were never edited to change someone's intent, rather it was to remove the T&C violations while leaving the value of the post intact. If posts were edited "to change someone's intent" they could easily have had the moderator removed if it wasn't tangled up in some hideous T&C violation. If that didn't happen, that's on them.Changing someone's words ...
