Dear Moderator I see that the thread "A fair exchange" that I created yesterday in section 'General Discussion' has been removed. This thread featured my discovery that someone is willing to exchange a guitar (I won't name the brand now, not PRS) for a portable telephone. I did not include a link to the sale or even name the website in case some would believe I was trying to move a guitar myself. I was not promoting the sale or the brand. My message, if it was not immediately apparent, was to imply "wow you can get a decent guitar for your used portable telephone and how sad I thought it was that someone would be willing to casually let go of a guitar for such a thing". I am not looking for an argument but an explanation as to why it has been removed would be very welcome. I have considered the possibilities. It could be related to something posted later in this thread that I have not seen. If the reason for removal might embarrass another member then I am fine with a private message. Otherwise, staying public might be helpful to others as well as myself. Thank you.
