Twice this morning I have written what I thought would be interesting messages. I got "DB error" each time. Who knows what I did wrong? Then 2 or 3 minutes ago I sent a reply to TA and it was instead "deleted" by Yahoo. Who does this? Why? Nothing in the message was objectionable.
Ironically, Yahoo deleted my attempt to post this, so I will try breaking it up into smaller posts.
Guys, what is happening here is apparently happening all over the Yahoo message boards. After Yahoo destroyed yet another of my posts, I searched, in Yahoo's search for "Stocks (A to Z) category," for this string (so the search would bring up plural and past tense forms as well as these words):
yahoo delete post
Try the search yourself and see that Yahoo seems to be blitzing throughout the message boards. Possibly its software went berserk or maybe Yahoo has been under attack by hackers.
Do you know how to pinpoint exactly which posts have been deleted and the approximate time? This method does not allow one to know the deleted post's subject line or poster, but it will help you see how many posts have been deleted.
To follow this method, open up the board's page with the list of 40 posts. Open a post and look at the last two LONG numbers in the URL. For example, the URL for this thread is
I have been looking for a pattern. Like "who am I addressing", "who am I replying too", " what kind of words used", "what kind of info. in message", etc. So far no pattern. Seems random. This morning when I got "deleted" after I was posted. That was really discouraging.
