in thread Where did my post go?

I haven't read the full story yet but that's part of my problem that I haven't read the FAQS which I will do shortly. However I'm not that ignorant as to not hit the submit button. I didn't know that the posts must be ok'd first. Suppose the FAQ comes in handy there. This -points $%$ is irrelevant atleast to me because how can I lose points (Whatever the $#&*# they are, and I'll get to that in the FAQ) when I submitted a question to find out where the hell my post went. Anywho thanks - But these point things piss me off. I hate losing points in anything. Just because I use expressives in this post I'll prob lose points again...It's worth it then.

    how can I lose points... when I submitted a question to find out where the hell my post went.

    Because you did it in a very vague manner. If you had made a post which simply said "My program doesn't work, why doesn't it work?" you would have lost points because nobody knows what you are talking about. Sentences have a subject and a verb, your subject was "my post", how are people supposed to know what "my post" is? Are you referring to the post which contains the "where did my post go" comment? If so, it's right here. A better way to phrase it would have been "I just made a post to the Section _____ concerning _____ but it is not there, does anyone know if this is normal behavior?"
      OK you make a very good point. Basically the equivalent to what I said back there was finding the correct tree in a forest when you are told to only find the right tree. Okay....Sorry....Won't happen again!
