Male to Female, however you choose to say it

Hi everyone.

Recently there was a post by harutake in this comm. Now there is not, which means it got deleted.

This is not transgender with its epic dramas and equally epic list of community rules, we're kinda smaller and more sleepy here, and the rules we do have are shorter in number, more informal and hopefully easier to navigate around.

...which is why it's disappointing when one of the few very clear rules we have, "Don't delete stuff" is casually ignored, because it's not that hard a concept.

So to reiterate:

Don't. Delete. Stuff.

Ever.

Thank you for your attention,

GrumpySarah

That's the point. If you make a post, don't delete it.

Posts may be edited to correct spelling and grammar mistakes. Replies may be edited/deleted and a corrected version reposted for the same reason, as long as nobody has followed up to them.

Even though I'm not the one who deleted whatever in the first place, and I'm just standing up against a rule that, as far as I'm concerned, is just plain fucked up, I'm going to save you all the trouble of reading my posts. I'm gone.

By the way, Sarah Brown, your userpic for this little thread says it all.

My posts are mine, and mine alone. I reserve the right to modify and/or delete them at my discretion.

In your own journal, that's absolutely fine. If you're going to participate in a community, however, it's a communal activity and as such there are rules. If you can't stick to the community rules, don't post here.

pretty much what Sarah said... if you want to post in the community, you abide by the community rules... if you don't want to abide by the rules, then you are welcome to go post elsewhere, or even create your own community to run how you see fit.

Whatever. Nobody is going to win, nothing is going to change, so either leave, quit, or shut up and move on.

this post is drama.

not to be rude or anything, but couldn't you have just messaged the person who deleted the post in the first place and explained the rule?

see the resulting flame war and drama for "why."
