Well, I guess that would a fine example of the difference
There's no reason to delete this thread
It's a discussion, an honest and fair question, and a link to the other site for comparison
It doesn't appear you are "spamming" for the other site
Links to other sites, even "competing" ones (DIY forums specifically), are allowed here
Though more so if it's in relation to a specific question
I mean, if your first 4 posts are "hey...look at this competing site"....you're pretty much begging for a banning
Seriously, this site is way more relaxed, with fewer rules
Not that the few aren't enforced well, but there are far, far, fewer of them
And much more moderator flexibility within this particular site
I'm sure your missing post was simply caught in a cross-fire
We don't delete for necro, but if there was spam in the thread that was raised up...(sometimes we miss them and they lie there until the thread rolls down into the depths)...or something else....
I can't speak to the specifics of the thread to which you refer, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't something like that
