    thanks thread police. I deleted it because its my choice too - it was fairly outing and I'd rather it not be seen by someone who could identify and link it back to me in real life.


    For those saying its rude - I have repeatedly thanked those who gave advice and individually thanked their posts.


    well done on those detective skills undervalued to be honest it was my further updates that I felt were more outing so my repeating my OP isn't a huge deal.

    A note for the future - if you're not prepared to stand in the middle of the high street & shout it out, don't post it on the internet

    Well if you aren't prepared to have your information on show, got either shouldn't say it or shouldn't post at all. Whether you like it or not, it is rude.

    It really is about time this forum adopted the same rules as others and only allowed a short time for drafting amendments, and then stopped posts being deleted. This is not a free personal advice service.

    Dont see the point in deleting posts. Others might be interested in the situation and the posts might prove insightful. Confidential stuff shouldnt be posted in the 1st place on any public forum if that was an issue.

    I'd be interested to know how undervalued used google to find the deleted original post. I just did it, and only found a link to the thread as it now stands, with all the OP's posts deleted.

    I don't think it IS your choice, TBH. Do you think you are so special that people will take the opportunity to help just you, without benefiting anyone who comes after you? And do you think people have the time to do this? This forum SHOULD provide an invaluable resource where people can search to see if their problem, or one similar, has already been answered.

    You have CHOSEN to post on a public forum. If you reveal too much about yourself, that is your choice. (I do have sympathy with people who might reveal a couple of things too much when distressed. I don't think your post was one of those).

    These are my opinions, BTW, not (necessarily) those of MSE, although I know some other board guides who are just as fed up as I am with people who delete their questions without realising that this can be seen as selfish!
    I'm the Board Guide on the Matched Betting; Referrers and Jobseeking & Training boards. I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move and merge posts there. Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this). Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com.

    The good folk of the matched betting board are now (I hope!) supporting Macmillan, in memory of Fifigrace. Visit

    I agree. On other boards the guides have a role in helping people to edit out information they shouldn't have posted. Where someone has inadvertently given out too much information about themselves, there are better ways of dealing with this than giving them the right to entirely delete their posts.
