If you believe that any of your posts have been improperly moderated, then would you care to share the details of what you posted that was deleted despite not violating CGN's rules?

Sure, I would love to. This is the thread. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=303729 There are 71 post on that thread. It is about a bunch of people whining about how much a gun store charges. I have no love for that gun store. In fact, I was not happy with the last purchase I made there. One member had posted repeatedly(half dozen times) about how he was taking his business elsewhere and trying to direct people to other FFL dealers. I made mention of his lack of customer service skills in my post and it was removed by a moderator. I doubt that my post was the most offensive post in that thread. Out of 71 posts, mine was the only one edited. Here is my post before and after.

I don't know you and I'm not looking to pick a fight, but if you have anyone to complain about, start with yourself. I have read your thread about your 80% lowers and find your attitude and customer service skills about as crappy as they come. Your signature line shows that you are proud of your behavior. If you don't believe me, read your own threads.

I am not going to defend Bullseye because I have my own issues with them regarding a purchase I made. I didn't get raped by them, but I had to call ATF myself to prove that they were wrong about requirements they said were law. One thing I've never had a problem with was bad attitude. Never has anyone at the San Rafael store been rude to me and I have been in there at least a dozen times. Due to finances, I am not as big of a spender as I used to be. They have never blown me off when asking questions.

There prices are not the cheapest. That's their choice. If they have a business model that they want to stick with, good for them. Bad for me I guess. I will choose what I can afford. I'm not going to beat them up over it.

When I saw this, I sent a PM to the mod asking why it had been edited. This was the reply.

No post of yours in the "new member, HORRIBLE STORY" thread was deleted prior to today; however, your most recent post has been deleted in an effort to clean up the thread.

I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I didn't catch the part about breaking rules, being immoral, posting porn, swearing or anything else. The other post didn't say anything offensive. Was I being spanked just so someone could show me that they could? You tell me what my crime was.
