I don't often wander into this minefield(the forums) of your thoughts.
I was interested in should I enter the third knock-out,so I asked that simple question.I wished I had not bothered now.
Let me get to the point ...[text shortened]... start of the thread.
I wiil just use feedback in future.
There, it should be gone now. Alerting a post does not automatically remove it.
When you 'alert' it, all that happens is it shows up in the moderator area, but nothing else happens to it until a moderator looks at it and decides to hide it or accept it.
It still remains where it was originally posted until a moderator 'hides' it, at which time it is removed from the forum.
If a moderator doesn't happen to be around to look at it right when you 'alert' it, nothing happens until one shows up and tries to figure out what to do with it. It isn't always obvious.
