I had a couple posts removed where I recommended a specific magazine article or book or website.

What's the policy, exactly? People recommend (or not) specific foods ... The forum is wonderful,

and I'll abide by any rules, but I don't get it. The magazine article was sent to me by a friend, I

probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise, and it was very informative.

Two of your posts have indeed been removed, but I don't know the specifics.

A common reason is that a user starts two or more essentially identical topics, usually in different forums. This is a violation of the rules, but one which we don't normally issue warnings for. We do remove all but one copy.

It is permitted to mention products, books, foods, web sites, and so forth that you are at arm's length from. Posting links to your own blog, or sites you (or your employer) operate is not permitted.

Jestgar was noting that the post is there - it has not been removed.

If you're not aware, ALL posts go to the "back of the queue" (so they're on the last page) of any particular category, until they have been reviewed and "pinned" by a moderator. Doesn't mean your post isn't there, just hard to find. You can always use the "View New Posts" link next to "My Controls" to view whatever posts have been added since you last were on the site, regardless of whether they are pinned or not.

Yes, that one .... and?

Also, if you are looking for any of your other posts, place the cursor on your name next to one of your posts and you'll see an arrow for a drop-down menu. Click on the arrow. Then click on find member's posts. It will list all of your posts starting with your most recent. You can also find your topics in the same drop-down menu.

You can also click on the options button on your profile page to get to the find member's posts option.
