"I'm obviously not to going to leave factually inaccurate or misleading information included in one of my posts up without correction. "
Your whole post is a pile of disingenuous krapola. You made a ridiculous mistake, one that was so stupid as to open you up to ridicule. When I suggested you check your facts, you decided to erase all evidence of the stupid mistake, instead of doing what most people would do. Most people would just acknowledge and correct the error in a follow-up post, or a reply to their own original post.
At the very least you should have disclosed that your post was an edited version of your original post. But you chose the deceitful alternative - a completely new post with the error removed, and no mention of the previous post (and in the process had my post deleted (as well as someone else's reply to your post)).
You don't have the right to remove others' posts - and it's bad enough that you wanted to save yourself some embarrassment, but you have now shown yourself to be duplicitous, too. I wonder how many other posts you have removed. Have you similarly removed those other posts where you made the same, stupid mistake? I saw you make it a couple of times myself, before I even bothered to comment on it in this thread. I bet they're gone, too. What a piece work, lol.
No self-righteousness here. Just someone who believes in honest, truthful engagement. You fail in that regard.
