Strange how these threads keep disappearing!

Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

There has always been this issue with what are essentially privately held message boards when it comes to freedom of speech. Which is to say, it doesn't exist. It depends on the intent of the owner as to whether posts or threads are removed. The moderators on KVR probably have consulted with Ben (who exactly is he anyway?) and it was decided that threads about developers cannot be too critical because the purpose of KVR is about commerce. Not saying it's the smart thing to do, but he's within his rights.

Hey, so that means if some-one wrote a great threat about some synth, and after a while nobody post any more to the thread, it get's deleted ?!

Maybe that explains why new people at kvr keep asking the same questions (like: which monitors to use...), they don't find the answer with a search becouse it was automatically deleted...

I know he started it, but who is he? Different question...I think. :)

But it was kinda weird that the thread just totally disappeared - makes me wonder what's happening. Maybe someone slipped in and started a mess and I missed it. :?

It was started about 2 weeks ago or less. Latest post would have been within the past week.

I see, you'd rather just play post tag. Never mind.

No, you dont see. If you want an explanation for who Ben 'is', as though that was relevant to something in particular, then I think you should be prepared to do the same. Otherwise you're just a hypocrite.

perhaps you should get familiar with the basics before you make an ass out of yourself by making an entirely failing attempt to critize something.
