Okay, I see the "purple-faced guy" thread has been deleted.
Honestly, once again this is an example of the moderators having much too thin of skin on this forum. Understand I appreciate the work that moderators do, but this has been an ongoing problem. Threads and comments are allowed to go on for pages and pages and then suddenly, someone decides they don't like the way it ends up, so it gets deleted.
For the record, the OP was an idiot, we all know that. He was taking some sort of perverse jollies out of playing a trolling game that only made him look like a fool. And, yes, his final post should have been deleted for his racist language (that is a legitimate reason to delete any post, although it seems to get applied arbitrarily at times).
But, we are all big boys and girls and we participate in these threads willingly. After two days of discussion, it's kind of silly and, frankly, plays right into the hand of the OP when the entire thread is deleted.
I'm sure I will get attacked for saying this, but I have been participating in this forum for years and I've found this to be annoying and counterproductive. The problem is that it can never be applied uniformly or fairly. Some frequent posters are allowed great latitude to be sarcastic and insulting at times, but others are not.
Just my opinion.
