I recently started a thread in the R1b General subforum on the paper, The Dogma of the Iberian Origin of Bell Beaker: Attempting its Deconstruction (http://www.academia.edu/11325848/The_dogma_of_the_Iberian_origin_of_the_Bell_Beaker _attempting_its_deconstruction), by Christian Jeunesse. I was hoping to stir some discussion of the paper relative to R1b. Now the thread is gone.

Wouldn't common courtesy dictate that if you are going to delete someone's thread, you would at least send him a message explaining why?

Otherwise, your actions appear arbitrary and unjust and hardly contribute to free and open discussion. Why would any serious person consider starting a thread or even participating here, if his efforts are subject to the whims of this or that moderator?

[ADMIN] rms2,

Minor snafu. Some confusion appeared to be generated after you stated "please delete" in one post; looks like this was misconstrued as the entire thread and not just that particular post. This appears to have been the only grounds for its' deletion.

I've just fully revived the thread in question:

Thanks for letting us know about this!

Oh, thanks. That's a relief. So, really, the source of the snafu was me. I'm monkeying with a brand new computer, so I'm blaming it on Hewlett Packard.

As you wish; from this side it just looked like an intention mismatch. The team does their best to support the community but human error is unavoidable. None of us are built from HP parts. :)
