I was looking for a comment that I made in the past, so I went to my profile and clicked on the link to a "Recent Activity". it took me to the correct forum topic (which was my original intent), but then I noticed my actual comment wasn't in the thread.
Any reason why it was not there ? Do the forums have a moderator that removes content. I could understand this for certain objectionable material, but my post was not controversial (I hope not).
Posts are only deleted when spamming (and then those users are blocked).
Btw, in 99%+ the spammers don't get past the first step, "approving" their first comment/post :-)
yottadata, please remember that Developer Exchange segregates Comment activity from Forum activity. Perhaps your post was in the other category than where you searched?
For reference, here are direct links to all your posts...
Your forum activity: http://developer.teradata.com/user/yottadata/forum
Your comment activity: http://developer.teradata.com/user/yottadata/comme
OK, I posted a comment to http://developer.teradata.com/tools/reference/tera
I have gone straight to the article/topic to follow the thread, but I though I was loosing my mind when I did not see my comments.
It would be good to see all comments in the thread of a topic.
There are four comment pages and your comment is on the 2nd page :-)
Seems like the forum software only jumps to a comment when it's on the 1st page, otherwise it's simply showing the top of the page.
I noticed that before but I thought this was due to the spam posts (if you got admin rights you see all unpublished spam. There's one blog entry with 719 pages * 50 posts = almost 36,000 posts, only 7 are no spam)
So it is ! I didn't notice the page navigation at the bottom until now. Mystery solved, and sorry for the trouble.
Thank you Dieter
