      I am just wondering why a short thread asking questions about a new Darkside blog was deleted. When I looked at it, all it contained was a brief discussion about how to sign out of it, who was hosting it, etc. I Then the next time I looked it was gone.

      Why is that? There is still some discussion of it left in BG's Christmas thing, but if I remember correctly, there was a link to the new site in that thread. Also gone now, unless I am not finding it.

          I also was wondering the same thing…the Christmas thread is still there, but all posts pertaining to the new DS have been removed. Why is that?

                  Maybe the powers that be want everybody to stay.  They secretly love the darksiders and are afraid that people might leave.

                        Then again, may be this board is run by the Obama administration and people shouldn't complain.  People should trust the ones making decisions for others and hand a little bit of their hard work , cash, and independent thinking over to them with confidence that they will make the right decisions.  I find it very comfortable to have people in control of this board, it is  a good thing, everybody feels very safe, and in the long run, will be much better off.   I am in favor of more regulation to be honest.  People like Bill, BG, Rox, and Yawn, need to be kept in line.

                            when you say kept in line, do you mean clothes lines?  or like in toe the line, or in a chorus line? or front line, or line up? or maybe a bank line Oh I am soooo confused.  maybe I need a dark side too in my life. 

                            I am sure I would be put straight in line. or towed in line? maybe even taken to a line dancing class.

                                                Hi, Cyn. I am ok you? I have been watching  a lot of football. Was secretly happy to see the Patriots lose, but can't let anyone know. My nephew is a big Pats fan but lives in NY, so we walks on eggshells cheering them on.

                                                Maybe someone will alert FH; I don't think he comes here anymore. Maybe they think it is obvious why they deleted it, but hardly obvious to me. I have visited the site, but I didn't sign in or post. Unlike the brave Fudd, I AM afraid to participate in a blog when I have no idea where it came from. Wish whoever created it would come out of the closet!
