Has anyone else noticed that if one person decides to sabotage your discussion and someone reports it as abuse then mylot will delete the whole discussion?? I thought it was just my memory until I saw one disappear today before my eyes ... hopefully it's still here somewhere but I can't find it!! I will email mylot just to make sure but this kinda makes sense to why some of my other posts have been deleted - there was nothing wrong with them and i triple checked it against the guidelines once i realised they were gone and never found out why. Has this happened to anyone else? Do you report abuse often?

I haven't had any discussions deleted, but I have noticed a few that has been. I'm quite sure mylot can delete a certain response without deleting the whole topic, so I'm not quite sure what happened to your discussion. Someone must have found a loophole in your discussion and reported it to mylot, as I cannot think of any excuse why they would delete your discussion. Or then again maybe its just another one of those mylot glitches. Lately their system is going nuts, making our star rating bounce up and down. Maybe your discussion was affected by the system glitch. You did the right thing by asking mylot about it.

Thank you for posting this. I haven't yet seen any discussions with a missing post - well i'd assume everyone after them would move up so you wouldn't notice. Mylot do a GREAT job but it's a real pity that a handful of people destroy it for everyone else

Okay lets say that you have a new discussion (like this one) and there was a reply to it from another member. and the reply was very rude and ugly and should be deleted. and we had some other members complaining out it. so they should have that one reply deleted. not the whole discussion. if the whole discussion was deleted then it wouldn't be fair to the person who posted the discussion, and to the people who replied to it in a nice manor.

oh! that might explain why a topic I was interested in just disappeared! bummer that it disappeared, but kind of a relief to know it was not my brain disfunctioning! oy vey. Let us know what mylot responds to you with, will you? interesting. too bad they dont just remove the offending post, but I guess that would take a lot of work to go through however many posts are reported in a days time.
