My Frenzy Sushi post on Chowhound was removed without explanation. When I did a search to try to find their guidelines so I could make a correction and repost, and to avoid similar mistakes in the future, I found a brusque and very unhelpful post from the moderators that essentially read "We do what we think is right and have no time to explain. Just get used to being deleted and move on." Two other topics started by users to discuss Chowhound posting rules and post deletion had been, you guessed it, removed without explanation.
This sort of facist attitude towards its users by a discussion board that is fueled by its users infuriates me. I mean, it's just downright rude. They don't even have the rules posted anywhere, so it really feels like they're just making them up.
I'm not sure what to do now. I'm thinking of reposting my original post, reposting a briefer version of my original post, attempting to contact the moderators, or building a bridge and getting over it. You all have more experience with this board than I do. What do you think I should do?
Addendum: This may have been stupid, but I just went ahead and made this post on Chowhound. We'll see what happens. My guess it that it won't go well. (Nope. It got removed within 20 minutes.)
This post by Sam from Becks & Posh really covers it all.
