Why was this post deleted?

I usually don't know if my posts are deleted, but someone pointed this deletion out to me.

2. Obviously, I thought I'd copied the link to my deleted post, but my computer disagreed.

My deepest apologies for wasting time with the wrong link.

I believe the post that was the subject of my original inquiry was Reply 14 on this thread. http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Again, sorry about the error.

3. Pretty much the entire post is going after the person rather than the issues. (nt)

4. No, not the person, the content of MANY of the person's posts and OPs.

And, if you notice which post of his to which I was replying, his belief that leftie posters at DU are actually Republicans was the issue he had raised in a post to some DUer who had criticized Obama.

That is supposed to be against DU rules, but I don't recall his post getting deleted, though, only my response to it.

It's been a while now, but, as I recall, the post of mine that was deleted never made a personal comment about him, like calling him a liar or a right winger or dumb or ugly or anything of the kind. I do not recally remarking on any of his personal characteristics or lack thereof, only what he has said over and over in his posts.

If someone posted to me "Many of your posts are critical of individual Democrats," that would be a fairly accurate statement about my posts, not an insult to me personally, as in "You're a .

By the way, that comment on my posts has been posted about my posts perhaps hundreds of times, often with thinly disguised comments about my alleged right leaning--which someone would have to be brain dead to actually believe, given the totality of my posts--and has never been deleted, nor would I expect it to be deleted. And I saw what my post to him as an accurate comment on many of that person's posts, including some of them in ATA.

But, thanks for the response. I do appreciate your time, especially at a busy time in your life.
