I've noticed a couple of posts have mysteriously disappeared, no locking, no lobo rant, just sneakily gone - does this happen a lot on the forum?

Have a strange habit to write what I think so I'm avoiding non neutral forums , not even reading anymore because if
something relevant happens Im more than sure someone will throw it here in short terms :)

Yes, as noted above.
Did you notice what they were about?

personally i have never understood the 'forum junkies' who have this incredible desire to reply/post their opinions daily/hourly about everything and anything. then their are the constant complainers who need to do pretty much the above and find the negative in everything and anything.

seriously, would you rant on in such a manner in front of the water machine in your office about your boss/manager/ceo/etc. and do so openly in person? chances are they would more than delete your post, they'd fire it.

for some reason 'keyboarding' give people the courage that if 'spoken' in person would be called 'stupidity'.

there is an adult constructive way to bring up a pitfall of a company, and a childish negative way to do the same thing. frankly, i am glad to see the crackdown on the bu!!sh!t on the IS forums.

if i want negative, speculative, and childish rants, i come here where they don't edit such drivel.

i look at so much of what is posted here and makes me wonder the average age of some of these people, cause they use big words like adults do, but the overall conveyance of the message is sand box level.

Personally I have never understood why 'forum half-wits' don't use proper punctuation when posting. Does anyone bother to read or attempt to interpret such drivel?

Just because posts disappear, it doesn't necessarily mean IS or moderators have removed them, I have fairly often posted things and gone back and removed them, perhaps realising that ranting in forums is not always a wise thing.

Yes, it's called "Freedom of speech"

If it does not work and the ambient temperature is 40C with 95% of humidity, yes.
I would even make a scandal!

You're right, I'd forgotten about that.
On the iS forum, you can delete a post, and so long as it's not the first in a thread, no sign of the post remains. If it's the first in a thread, I think there's an empty post with your name on it.

Generally, if I remember well, in forums where you can delete your own posts you can do it only if the post is the last of the thread.

Does iStock not use this behavior?

Also, they remove spam. There's one which appeared a few minutes back. It's gone, but the title remains.

They weren't whole threads, just 2 posts I made (and yes, in similar circumstances in a work environment I would voice negative opinion where relevant).

The first, in response to some comments from exclusives around PP taking sales from IS and the fact PP is closed to exclusives, I made a point about how the nature of PP sales seems to have changed in September, the RPD is better and wouldn't be surprised if exclusives get the option to have main collection files over there.  Considerably less aggressive than the guy who offered to fly to calgary so that he could be rogered by each staff member individually (although maybe that didn't last either).

The 2nd was some guy talking about waiting 4 weeks for scout, there was some BS about research needed and I just pointed out that I cancelled a no research needed ticket after 6 weeks and that scout probably only looks at non-exclusive when there are no exclusive tickets.

All very harmless...

Absolutely, I certainly voiced negative opinion at work where relevant; 'full and frank exchange of opinion' was generally encouraged.
I'm sorry if others work in a totalitarian regime where this is not encouraged. In fact, the only person I ever heard having an 'issue' was when, instead of making his grievances known in the workplace, he took them to an internet forum.
