    Why was my thread deleted?

    I posted a thread last night about gay players in the NFL and it was either deleted or moved somewhere that I can't find it. I did not use the term gay in a derogatory or demeaning way, I was trying to spark a serious, mature discussion. I have never had a problem with the admins as long as I've been frequenting this site but this is an example of not only a flaw with this website, but a flaw with society. Why is a discussion about whether NFL players are gay and whether or not that would be accepted (posted in the correct forum) worthy of deletion while one of one million threads about Randy Moss or how the Dolphins suck or Chad Johnson's antics are left alone? I posted an interesting and different thread that followed the TOS. I am upset and disgusted by the actions of your administrators and I would really love to hear an explanation.

    Who cares if a player is gay?

    Your thread was deleted because it served no real purpose.

    Is that against the terms of service?

    What purpose do these threads serve?

    For that matter what purpose do any threads serve other then to spark discussion, like mine? This is a discussion board, no? Perhaps the mod that deleted this is a little trigger happy...

    Another FYI, I can read the reason you put for reporting a post.

    I'm not the Admin who deleted your thread but, I can tell you why it was deleted. Because there are too many people on this MB who are not mature enough to handle discussing a subject like that and I shudder to think what that thread would turn into.
    At a television studio in Hollywood on Monday night, Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor was doing the fox trot. He probably was wearing makeup, too.
    About an hour south down Interstate 5, quarterback John Beck was on the verge of lining up his chicken nuggets in a shotgun formation.

    ...what it was already turning into....

    BTW... I'm the Admin that moved it.
    Why? because it really doesn't matter if they're gay or not does it?
    any more than it matters whether they're black or white.
