repost missing post?

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by Jo-Anne, Mar 9, 2010.

    Today I responded to four people who had answered my question about
    desktop.ini files. Three of my responses made it to the newsgroup. One (the
    first one, sent an hour ago) didn't. I don't see it in OE or at the
    Microsoft newsgroup website.

    At what point should one repost a missing post?

    Thank you!

    I see only three responses from you in that thread, so the missing one
    has gone off to Never-Never Land, apparently. You should feel free to
    post it again. The worst thing that could happen is duplicate posts,
    which is not a capital offense.

    An hour is plenty of time. Just repost it. So what if they both show up?
    Might want to check, using Google Groups, to see if it made into mainstream
    circulation:
    http://www.google.com/url?url=http:...groups&usg=AFQjCNGCvcPwy8PFh9s0lqDga4PUGLGRFg

    Or use this one:
    http://tinyurl.com/y9uzadz

    I also suggest rewriting the post as much as you can, to evade any
    possibility of (ridiculous) censorship.

    This happens to many of us. Microsoft has filters that sometimes remove
    posts for no discernible reason. Because MS seems determined to phase
    out NNTP newsgroups in favor of web-based forums, it's not likely that
    it'll do anything about the filters.

    Eventually, you should be able to find your post using Advanced Search
    in Google Groups, but Google doesn't seem to have crawled
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.general yet today.

    Thank you, Lem! I did repost, and that one made it through. The first one
    didn't appear anywhere.

    It is MVPs who have been made moderators by M$ are deleting messages
    from newsgroups. Most of my messages gets deleted and I suspect it is
    either Pig-Bear, Ken Blake, Bruce Pig-Hagan or Sheehan Stanley. I
    strongly suspect Sheehan deleting my messages. However, I feel
    gratified that my messages are being read and that are effective enough
    to get at them at the heart of their nervous system where it hurts
    most. What more can I ask?.

    Calling MVPs as Microsoft Valuable Pig is a serious offense;
    Calling MVPs as scum-sucking Pigs is an offense;
    Calling yourself as Pig-MVP is also an offense;
    Calling Bruce Pig-Hagan as Dirty Old B@st@rd is an offense;
    Questioning an MVP is an offense;
    Questioning MVPs definition of a computer is a serious offense
    especially in connection with OEM software;

    So there are many instances why posts are deleted.

    Jo-Anne's messages got deleted because she tried to give credits or to
    thank somebody who wasn't an MVP. This is even a very very serious
    offense punishable by public floggings.

    I hope you get the idea.

    Idiot! There are no moderators in the newsgroups and MVP's can't delete
    messages on the newsgroup servers. Your posts are being deleted because
    you're an ignorant moron.

    of the other idiots?

    It seems all these lying trolls knows only two words: "idiot" and
    "moron".

    Do you guys know anything else? How about scum-sucking pig?

    The idea of my original post was to provoke a response from Microsoft
    Valuable Pigs but it seems they are all asleep at the moment. There
    time zone is not in sync with the rest of the working population on this
    planet mainly due to the fact that they are octogenarians and scrounging
    on taxpayers to finance their hobby!

    Yet another in a very long series of newsgroup server synchronization

    Hi, Jim,

    If you see only one post addressed to Alan from me, then the first one is
    still missing, since I reposted. (By this time there are lots more posts
    than four.)
