I too got a notice that they deleted my post on unions and the VA. Guess it was too political. If it is a move by the govt that affects our benefits with the VA then it should be allowed. Did not realize it is up to the host to censor our forum, thought they just were here to facilitate the using of the forum.
Has anybody happened to notice the Vietnam version 2.0 going on in Afghanistan. Pulling troops out, to let home country troops take over the defense of country, leaving behind so much military equipment and arms that we know are / will fall into the hands of the taliban. Kind of hard to believe the idiots in Washington did not forsee this happening with hindsight of Vietnam!
See the reply to Howard Jacobs' post about this subject. Your post was not the problem (in fact it pointed out the problem with the prior two posts), but the original post was deleted because it started conversations down a political path. The two others who posted after Howard were automatically deleted as well, with Howard's.

Sometimes you have to refresh the screen after you post to see it....
Had you just posted the link without your added political statement (which resulted in subsequent political statement), you would have been fine... and we do not control what is posted on the internet.
As you can see by your own post here, you still have access to the Forum, but unknown to me previously, the "Scuttlebutt" has been deleted from our website. I wasn't aware of that until now, but have asked Webmaster Rick Racich what happened...
