Sometimes posts are deleted as "junk" if they have no value or not seen as humerous

The idea is to help people
The people that are asking for assistance usually get an e-mail that a new post has been made on their thread
So they come to the thread & find...a joke..something humerous...that has
no value & wastes their time
Many other people also subscribe to threads they are interested in
So while it may seem harmless to post such things, it does waste peoples time

Sometimes multiple people then post additonal "junk" posts...and all are deleted as the thread gets off-topic & harder to read for information
