If you are going to lock a Thread saying it has to be moved to Off Topic, then why not just move it then & there?!

I worked very hard upon a reply, only to have it disappeared by the system, & thus permanently lost.

I gave an explanation of the Electoral College. That America is NOT a Democracy, but a Representative Republic. Most American's do not understand how this actually works, let alone any readers here from other nations.

TWC, as a former mod on a work-related board, I can tell you, moving topics around is not easy. It takes time and you have to be careful.

western rider said he'd move the post WHEN HE HAD TIME to do it.

He does have a life outside this board! :D

It was my understanding the moving the Thread was based upon the outcome of whether or not what Rik said was going to be allowed to stand or not.

Yes, I can understand, depending upon how the Forum system for a site is set up, it could take more effort to move a Thread on some websites than others.

Whatever, I am still annoyed I lost a post I spent a lot of time & effort upon. :(

I did need time to move it I also wanted others to know where it went if they felt like posting to it.  

When I moved it there was only one comment posted to it and TWC it was not yours.  I have no idea where yours went.

Thank you Sunsilver

I guess I was still typing mine. I hit submit & it poofed into thin air. I had not (yet) read you were moving the Thread.

It is water under the bridge now. ;)

Democracy= mob rule

USA, Constitutionally, is a Representative Republic. President Trump is a Constitutionalist president.

Keeping you all fooled am I??

Jill, I always thought W.R. was male. I dunno - guess I'm not sure. But I've been around this board longer than most of you, so I MIGHT have found that out at some time in the past!

With a picture of a cat in the Avatar, I'm guessing W.R. is female.
