Why did my post "URGENT - Michigan Learning Scool - Japan, Gifu" end up in the Japan Forum when I posted on the General Discussion Forum????

Simple housekeeping.

As you noted in your original post, it should have been in the Japan forum. It was allowed to stay on the General Discussion forum at your request because of the urgency involved.

When the thread deteriorated to the lonely hearts club banter, the urgency appeared to have diminished so it was moved to the appropriate forum.

Your response shocked, dismayed and then appalled me to such an extent that I have been loathe to reply for fear of further "censorship".

Now that I have the information I needed to assist me make my decision re employment with the Michigan English School - Japan, I have decided to risk further "censorship" and question your response.

"When the thread deteriorated to the lonely hearts club banter, the urgency appeared to have diminished so it was moved to the appropriate forum."

Since when did urgency preclude the use of satire? Since when did the use of satire cancel out urgency?

What is the appropriate forum for lonely hearts club banter if not the General Discussion forum?

If the appropriate forum for lonely hearts club banter is not the General Discussion forum, why then has the post "Where are all the good women?" been allowed to flourish ad nauseum on the General Discussion forum?

Can you please assure me that your response to my satirical comment referring to the "Where are all the good women?" post is not a form of censorship or at the very least "punishment" for deriding male pomposity?
