My Post has disappearedI posted a short item today at 8am CDT about "Minnesota's North Shore" along with urls to photographs and park information. I had two responses. Including one that said my post sounded like an advertisement. The post has now disappeared. Does anyone have any ideas why?

3Odds are good that if someone thought it was spam, that person also flagged the post. It takes more than one flag before they'll pull a post (I'm not sure how many more), so someone else must have thought so too.
On that note, though, if more than one person thought it was spam, you probably didn't do a very good job of posting something that seemed helpful and neutral.

4Yah, this happens to all of us, I don't think it has anything to do with advertisement or flagging, it seems quite random to me. I have probably 1 out of every 5 threads disappear on me on average. And yeah, I've emailed the moderators to alert them of the issue, but so far have heard nothing back!

5Max, a serial abuser of this site, May be the most redacted "member" yet allowed to post here...It seems the mods while deleting the most offensive attempts, continue to enable this identities continuing abuse if the site. Perhaps, finding him a entertaining counterpoint to laboring at the keyboard all day doing whack-a-mole on spammers... carracar

6Mrpenney, it doesn't necessarily take more than one flag for a post to be pulled. It's just a question of how long it takes for a mod to look at it. If a mod notices a post that violates the terms of service (e.g. Max advocating illegal activity), it gets pulled, whether no one has flagged it, or one person, or many people.
Mods coming on duty may check posts with multiple flags first. I don't know, but it would make sense.
