In the other forum, there was a thread about RV Movies. Someone mentioned Nationals Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, which I forgot to mention. I posted," Hey, that's how I learned to dump my septic in the sewer. J/K!!"
I would never do that of course and J/K I thought meant just kidding. Guess the moderator didn't think it was funny. The next day, the reply was gone. Would it have been deleted here???

For those of you who don't remember or haven't seen the movie, I'm referring to the seen when "cousin Eddie" is dumping his septic tank from his run down RV into a sewer grate. And he's making it look like the hose is part of his body.

Some of the moderation over there is rather sporadic. I have seen the most innocent remarks like yours get deleted, and other times I have seen out right name calling and cussing left for all to read.

Some moderators over there do a very good job, others not so good. However it is definately a thankless job with numerous posts each day to inspect I'm sure.

Well, from my perspective, as a moderator here, I doubt that I would have deleted that, especially as you put j/k, which I would have interpreted as you intended.

I would have, however, watched the topic to make sure that you didn't get flamed, and to explain to any flamer why they didn't see the humour!

So long as the "just kidding" was clear, I'd see no problem with it - a little humor in any thread is a good thing.

It certainly wouldn't be deleted by ME whether it had the "JK" after it or not. Sometimes a moderator can take themselves a little bit too seriously and believe that THEIR ideas are the ONLY ideas that are acceptable. I'd jump in and argue with ANYONE who advocated that the practice was an acceptable means of handling waste tanks but would leave the post so intelligent folks would KNOW who they're dealing with on future posts from that individual (provided they were seriously advocating the practice). I doubt if ANYONE is dumb enough to take a post like that in a serious manner though. Well...maybe someone with a seriously LACKING sense of humor :D
