I didn't see his first post, but I did see the deleted remains, hence my reply. And it still stands for being so immature and inconsiderate.

Inconsiderate to delete. But if it's true, he can't use the net and if it's not it's not. 89 might be the year he got married.

This is why we usually quote the first post so when we get a arse like this one, we don't lose the entire thread. As it stands at the moment, the casual reader as absolutely no idea what generated the responses the OP received due to his inconsideration.

So I post a question that appears to upset people so I delete my post to avoid further offence & apologize. Then get more abuse from the Moderators. Mind you who doesn't like an argument in forumland....cue more pontification from the Mods...

I wasn't upset. I was amused. You've just got a cob on because you feel silly for asking and sillier for deleting. Get over it, man.

I agree they should get over it, seems to be an overreaction.

Not an overreaction. Moderators are the ones who have to clean up the mess that inconsiderate posters leave behind. You are not alone. There are plenty of jerks out there. We get 'em all the time and they get the same treatment. In your case though, it's a little bit different as you have stuck around, making your actions all the more pathetic.

I'd call that a pontificating overreaction.

Yes very subtle. But since one of the mods has called me an arse (twice), a jerk, pathetic, immature, inconsiderate (twice) and said he hopes my visa is rejected you should probably look a bit closer to home for the troll. I made a mistake then acknowledged it and apologized - his reaction seems a little unhinged to be honest.

I didn't see any attempt at reinstating your initial post. Did you? :-|

Where is that kicking the dead horsey 'con?.....

Back to the topic - Is there much mining work in Singapore? I thought Australia was the place to be for that, even now.

Ah I see, mining company, not mining per se, I know there's a BHP Billiton office downtown.
