Heavy handed deletions on Texas Forum.

I posted a website address to help foreign visitors get their sales tax refund..deleted! I have no connection..My 3900 postings would have shown this. It was simply info i found while answering a question

Another new poster asked how to do a review of a new restaurant ..closed topic. I posted a link to how he could do this so there was no need to close the topic and appear so unfriendly

If you want to eliminate some bad posts stop all the spam posts on the Alabama Forum. Now that would be a help!!

My guess (and it's only a guess) is that some members are "reporting inappropriate content." Maybe it's malicious, maybe the members are misinformed about forum guidelines, maybe they think this is fun. Whatever. Just ask TripAdvisor_Staff to look at your removed post and to reinstate it. Ask them to look at the "how to write a review" thread and perhaps reinstate it.

You have been on these forums long enough to know that you are not talking to TA, you are talking to other members. So, not sure who you mean by "you".

TripAdvisor staff does read this forum, or at least they used to ;-)
