I read it after post one, then came back later and the OP has posted about 6-8? follow-ups intersperced with help, but had by then deleted all her posts and just left 'none-n/a' in each. I.e. the topic was therefore utterly useless and I imagine the Mods chose to put the whole thing out of it's misery.

...why would she bother to delete her posts? It is not that she has done a crime and some men with black suit will trace them back to her.

Gosh, people these days...

Because she had no concept of the sharing nature of a forum; i.e. she was a 'Taker'. Come and take time and knowledge from people, then stick two fingers up and walk away...

Hmph, if only I know how to play with cache and dig up, I'd be more than happy to offer them at the mods' feet at their disposal :P

No this was another thread the previous day... re: an airline pilot, distance learning MBA, and a refused EP.

The cache is in each browser I expect .... just it varies how simple it is to use. I'm no techie so can't advise ... :oops:

Nak, that thread is no more, that's why JR8 and I am discussing it here instead (since he brought it up) :mrgreen:

See? That's why I hate it when OPs spoil their own threads...

Although quoting in full takes up space I think there is maybe a case to use it when you see the direction of a topic. (i.e. possibility of deletion and walking away)

In this perjury thread the direction became quite apparent. The other, pilot thread ... well I only read the start of it, but the deletion seemed rather arbitrary.

Between the fourth and fifth post from OP, there were several PMs to me.
I can dare say that all PM to me remains confidential and I can understand of not wanting to spill your gut in the open but when the blunt truth hurts, OP should take stock and try to resolve the issue rather than trying to wiggle himself out of this mud pool.
I have been called all kinds of names over the years when I refused to do what they intend to do.
What really gets me is he got cold feet and start deleting the ones on public domain which really does not make sense at all.
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

Missed you, you were in my neighborhood. Let me know next time you're around, I keep missing the Eagles thing. Will try to go to the next one especially if it's at the same place, I know the owner.

That was the boss's treat for the entire office staff (20 of us) for a Tender that we just won. We have another out we are hoping for. If we win that one, he's promised the office staff a 3 day 2 night trip to Halong Bay. That'll work! :cool:
