I missed it completely, but based on this thread, I can see why they would remove it (but please post it on another team's thread, and let us know where it is) and that even if I didn't agree with it, I would be able to read without being offended

I didn't see your post, but received an email from a friend with the same title, so think I know what the subject was...
I have a list of pro & anti "Christmas" stores if you're interested in supporting one or the other...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

DODGEGM:
I never saw it, only because I saw the thread title, with the word "CHRISTmas" in it. I figured it'd be something religious, so I didn't bother clicking on it.

I can see why it got deleted and agree that it would probably have been better off in a religious group, but hey, if you can't guess what the thread is going to be about from the blatantly obvious title then I don't think you should complain. After all it's not like you put "My first ride on the new bike" as a thread title, eh?

Still, them's the rules, I guess.

Yeah I thought we were mature adults that could have a discussion. I am very sorry if I offended anyone. Here is why I was told it was deleted.
I deleted the post you made on the cycling team about "the month before Christmas." It's fine to post messages about religion on teams with a religious focus, but not to promote a particular religious perspective on teams with a completely different focus. Your post has generated several complaints.

Thanks for your cooperation with our community guidelines.

I hope my comment didn't add to it being removed. I thought it was an interesting start to discussion.

So did my Christmas poem offend someone? Is that why it was removed? If so I am sorry
