Why members having a discussion deleted are posting it again ?
December 2, 2017 11:14am CST
Not long ago we had members starting a discussion to ask why their discussion was deleted. Now they start the same discussion again... and again... and again, until myLot decides to not delete it. It looks like a wear strategy is born. What makes you think that the deletion was an error ? You cannot be wrong because you joined here when GoAskAlice was bottle fed ? You cannot be wrong 1) because you are never wrong, and 2) if eventually you were wrong GAA should apply 1)? (Remove your mask, Donald, I have recognized you). I think it is time to remember you the administrative advisement issued on April 17th 2017 : if you want to know why your discussion was removed, send a PM to @GoAskAlice. But maybe you do not want to know ?
I just want to take a moment to remind everyone that if you have a discussion removed and you would like to know why, please send me a private message rather...

@cahaya1983 Some old members come back after a very long time and don't remember that myLot's rules may be a little different from another site they may have been using or haven't realised that myLot's Guidelines have changed since May 2013. I have also seen people who have been here (and active) for nearly a year who have clearly NEVER bothered to read the Guidelines!
Some did that because they were curious I think. Sometimes it seems easier re-submitting than go find the answer from the admin. (I know I would if it that had happened to me, especially if the topic was completely OK according to mylot standard. However, if 3rd try still didn't work, that would be when I go asking the admin.)
@topffer Ah, got it! . A member just 'sort of' asked (in a discussion) of why her post was deleted over and over, and she did some experiments to see what was the reason. She found out the question she used in the title was the culprit (survey form), not the quote from the bible. I thought you might have read that discussion.
A member was questioning why a discussion was removed twice, she mentioned she copied from a Blog site and mentioned it Finally she reposted without mentioning it was from a Blog and she was happy to see that it was not deleted. What to do with people like that?

Two old members did it today. One told that she joined in 2006 and never had a discussion deleted before yesterday, so she was posting again (she comes here every 2 or 3 years) and the other that she posted for the third time a removed discussion, because she was thinking the subject was interesting...
@topffer I need to look at the one that posted for the third time to make a judgement call. Some members immediately strike out at others with comments like, "oh those people are stupid and never will learn" or something similar but you know I just can't bring myself to do that without seeing what they are writing. but I believe you of course just wondering if the person by making a re-post is changing anything to make it legal?

@topffer I understand, thanks for the clarification. I just wanted to ask you, obviously if it's not a problem for you, if you could (obviously in PM), send me a picture of your face. BUT If you do not think it's appropriate, please note that I've never asked you this. Thanks in advance Alessandro

Kinda sounds to me like a bad lab rat experiment - and they are failing to see the cause and effect . They don't understand, but they don't even bother to seek a solution . . . instead they keep doing the same mistake over and over again .
