Forum policies do not support actionsOne of my forum responses was deleted and given -10 points. The message left by the Admin directs me to read the Forum Policies on this page. There is nothing on the page that points to an error on my part. When you apply rules and penalise members should you not also provide the right link to the Forum Policies?
I know you'll remind me that I am an old member and should know the rule about not posting responses to old threads. Fair enough, but what about your role? Why are you directing me to read irrelevant guidelines?
I went through a pinned post on guidelines that has a link to this post. The latter describes situations where deduction of points and deletion of posts can happen. It mentions SPAM and irrelevant, inappropriate and misleading posts. My response did not fit into any of these categories, but I'll accept the point deduction and even the deletion of the post because it was in response to an old post.
However, I don't understand how the responses given by an editor, in this post, didn't receive a similar treatment. The answers are misleading, contradictory and confusing. If you have rules apply them to everyone.
