Reasons for deletion of "Sharapova reads mean tweets" thread

People on that thread told me videos from the Youtube account I was linking to always got deleted. I read that and finally understood why I stopped finding those "text to speech" satirical Youtube videos here.

Since I can't be arsed to find out the reasons why this has been done in the past, I'm asking why you did this just now.

Not contesting your decision. For now. Just asking why.

These videos are the creation of a banned poster hence why they are removed from any posts or new threads.

I know alfonso is probably a former user.. but I don't think hollygolighty is a banned user?

Hey,

I couldn't find any member by the username hollygolighty in the backend. John, do you recall if hollygolighty was going under a different name here?

I don't get this.

Satirical/humorous material posted here should be judged by its contents rather than its source/author.

It's not like whatever banned poster was behind those videos was using them to send messages from the grave so to speak or to remotely keep trolling TF.

very surprised to see this absurdity linked to in GM main page. it's content violates, oh, most of the commandments you/Mods try to maintain. in short...you got played.

And that you could not ascertain the true author, and how they are playing you? The only time I have ever looked for a TF member in the RealWorld, the pseudonym HollyGoLighty was easily found for said person. Plus their real identity, address, occupation...and I have no true skills to do so, it was that simple.

I know this is probably a bullshit and unsatisfying topic for you. Do what you like. I appreciate the job all the mods do here, it's thankless work, but good job.
