A little while ago I posted a question, with some cross-posting, about TMP'ers experiences with Stone Mountain's Color Paints. I was trying to figure out if I should spend any money on them. It posted for a little while then POOF, it disappeared, zapped I suspect by the Powers That Be. My question is Why? I wasn't advertising anything nor was there any objectionable language included…

So what gives? Technical glitch, or did I cross some line? I'd appreciate some enlightening by the zapper.

p.s. I didn't bother cross-posting this one in case it gets zapped too.

I can still see it on the front page – it appears to have had all the cross-postings deleted.
Here's a similar post on SM paints

I'd say! Apparently it went back in time 50 years (before coming back… ;-)

Bobgnar…Yep that's the one.

Huscarle…Thanks. It's not visible to me on the home page. Just both of my "what happened" posts. The first of which immediately got zapped. The second was it's replacement.

Zephyr…Wish I would have seen that, at least I could have had a laugh.grin

So I guess posting about paints isn't appropriate for "painting guides" boards. Who knew?

Oh, I can get to the OP via Bobgnar's link but not from the "Painting" board where it still seems to exist(at least via link). It appears the EiC removed all the cross-posts but not the OP according to the notes, buuut when I go to the "Painting" board it's nowhere to be found.

Well I must say 2021 is off to an inauspicious start.

We have an interesting 2021 bug. grin

When I corrected the spelling, the server backdated your post to 1970! I was able to correct this, but only to 2020.

I will need to take a look at the code at a future date. A very soon future date.

Or a past date…

If I can post a message to 1970, there are some things I'd like to say to myself. Of course, getting me to read them would be another matter. Does Amazon deliver to 1970?
