How and when to delay posting of responses on the forum threads?Normally the regular members who generally remain online pounce upon any new forum thread on its first sight. However, I have learnt through my experience that in certain cases, it is better to delay posting of responses and some cooling off period should be allowed.
The most common and typical example of such threads are the threads touching upon a controversial issue. It is better to wait for at least 3-4 responses from other authors and only after that post response to ensure that the effort is not wasted in case the thread is deleted by the editors.
Sometimes it has so happened that when I posted my response after typing the content laboriously, the thread was gone.
Sometimes the threads raised on certain gender related topics by female author survive, though there is no guarantee that the same will survive when raised by a male author.
Then there are certain most wanted type of authors whose threads are particularly watched and there remains a hazard of their threads getting deleted.
