Deleted discussions without notification

I see complaints about this often. Yes, I will agree it can be a pain in the butt to 'lose' a discussion and not know why...although many times I see a discussion that I am fairly sure will 'get the ax' and then I see the person later complaining it got deleted but they don't know why. Unfortunately, every one of us agreed to this particular thing when we joined: "We also reserve the right to delete any discussion, response, comment, or photo without notification to any myLot member." Remember when you had to tick a box saying you agreed to the Terms to make your account? That is mentioned in the terms at least three times. Yes, it can be annoying. I find it annoying at times. However, @GoAskAlice has stated in one of his discussions: "if you have a discussion removed and you would like to know why, please send me a private message". Of course Alice (Alex) is NOT the only person that can delete discussions here, so they may have never seen it, and therefore may not be able to tell you why it was deleted. So I would suggest that you save a copy of every discussion you make here. Then if it gets deleted, and you are not sure why, you can send them a PM with a copy of the deleted discussion asking why it was deleted. Then Alex can look at it and tell you why it got deleted. Or you can just keep complaining you don't know why your discussion got deleted.

So is Alice or Alex a boy or a girl? hehehe but yes, I read that in the guidelines (which I did because someone replied on my comment in one discussion mentioning about the guidelines and that I commented a discussion that will be deleted. That person could at least tell me nicely and not be as rude as can be. And that person blocked me, by the way, for reasons I do not know because that was the only time I interacted with that person) . Anyways, yeah if we have questions, better go to the admin instead of whining or complaining.
I always tell people to save their discussions on their hard disk before to publish. It seems that they "are lazy and they do not want to lose their time". Where is the difference if you type in a textile and save or directly int he discussion box? This is something I will never understand.
I don't ever complain as I don't feel any injustice in that. it's already a privilege to be a member of this site and to get a few dollars every month. So what's to complain if I get one of my discussions deleted? I could make another one and make sure it doesn't.
