why was my thread deleted?

So, my off topic thread, that I posted in the "Off Topic Discussion" was deleted.

Why?

I don't know but IMO there never should have been an 'Anything goes' OT sub forum here.
I may be wrong but I think the original intent was to have a place to put threads which were related to RPi but which did not fit any of the other sub forums.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

I agree with the no "anything goes".

But I was asking a question about gizmo's and hoping to get responses from like minded techy people (and I did), and now it is gone.

Topics that are completely unrelated to the Pi are sometimes deleted. Topics that are prone to be "edgy" are at a higher risk of being deleted. Topics that always seem to lead to arguments are at risk of being deleted. this topic has, I think, a moderately strong chance of being deleted.

We are not psychic. We have not seen your post. Apparently because it was deleted. How on Earth do you expect us to know what the issues is/was?

As far as I can tell, in my experience so far, a post has to be really off the wall to actually get deleted around here.

Looked through the moderators log, but couldn't find anything form the OP that was recently deleted, we need specific info about the subject to know why it was deleted, probably either because it had nothing to do about a RPI, or it asked specific questions about a competitors product (which should be posted in its forum, if it exists).

Indeed, we have few rules here, generally be nice to one another and keep things Pi related.

Things that get deleted get deleted for a reason. Just live with it. Life's too short to worry about it.
