I posted a driveline question in the Interior Forum, and some snot-nosed, whipper-snapping moderator deleted it!
He did not move it to the Driveline Forum. No. He just axed me.
Anyone know anything about this guy?
PM me so we can work out a "plan"...

I have some old friends in St. Louis that can, lets just say, "take care of this problem".
They owe me some favors.

"Whipper-snapper is derived from the habit of young layabouts who hung around snapping whips to pass the time."

Hmmm . . . sounds like almost any Moderator? (not)

Carl's post/jab/joke is well-taken (and harmless). However, I think the new software/system is not as flexible (and, not as well understood by moderators) as was the former system (and, maybe, some newer moderators)?

I can relate almost NOTHING about happenings in the shop and have to post no comment pictures with only my fingers and not my thoughts crossing the keypad. Whether it is race, religion, sex, body shape, ethnicity, degree of intelligence, ambition, work speed, ability, production, politics (especially politics)---each is expressed, usually loudly and with much profanity, in the very most politically INCORRECT manner. In such a den of everything contrary to what is preached as the "right" way there has been almost zero employee turnover in the last 40 years.

That's odd, in a single day I've come across "jimcrackery" and now "whippersnapper" . Have I fallen into a worm hole back to 1895?
