With this thread, I do apologize to my fellow 'Fritter Critters for any part I may have contributed to gobabushka's recently deleted thread.
Short of responding to a few PMs, I have been off the 'net entrely since Thursday around 9-ish that morning. In that thread, I participated in going significantly off-topic from the intent of the thread. Once I saw where the other party in my conversation was going and developed suspicions that I was dealing with a banned member violating the AUP, I contacted some admins and refrained from further digression. To that point, I had only allowed myself to go off-topic enough to confirm my suspicions enough to warrant contacting an admin.
If my contribution to that thread's off topic digression (even though it was aimed at discovering the truth of a member's violation of the AUP) was responsible for the removal of the thread, then I do truely apologize as I not intend this outcome, nor do I wish my actions to mar the culture we have here. The AUP does instruct us to stay on topic.
I have seen a discussion thread about the closure of that post, now locked (could an admin please PM later on why that was?) As I did not read anything after my last posting late Wednesday or early Thursday, I do not know what transpired besides the off-topic examination of myself led by the aforementioned member.
If I am just babbling in the dark and there was some significant happenings that I missed that resulted in what happened, then I missed it having been off line for those few short days and would someone please send me a PM to catch me up. As I was off line, any warnings or corrections from TO or the admins in the thread, I missed. As such I do not know if I was the part of the problem.
PS: For the sake of brevity, please do not reply to this post, just take it for what it is intended to be and move on. Please PM me if you must say something.
