Why cant anyone else post a topic here??

Can someone please tell me why no one else can post a topic here, without Autobot removing it??
I posted about Craig Lowndes moving to Triple8 in 2005, and now Autobot has removed it, even though i posted the thread about 5 hours before he did, and my thread had 8 or so replys, as opposed to his with none.
Whats the go??

Har har, very funny.

But hey, if Autobot can't delete stuff, then why are all the threads in this section by Autobot, and all others created by other people get removed. Who knows how long this one will last...

Re: Why cant anyone else post a topic here??

autobot is not a person, it is a script that takes headers from newsfeeds on other sites that offers them and posts them to the forum, therefore autobot is not able to see a post not made by itself and delete it, another forum admin however, can move it, or merge it in with a thread on the same topic, which had already been posted before yours in a different section, which is what happened in your case, nothing sinister is going on.

As for all the posts in this section being by autobot, this is simply because people wanted autobot postings to be separated from the other forums, in this case the V8 supercar forum, so now we have a forum that is full of v8 supercar news headlines posted by the autobot, while other discussion is in the pits. Again, nothing sinister.....
