Hi Folks,

I am new here,  been registered less than a week.  I saw someone looking for a piece of land, maybe Colorado, which is where I live.

I replied to the post describing a piece of property I know of in my area.  Then, thinking it might be of interest to many, I posted it under its own heading.

The land is currently in conventionally farmed fruit orchards, and has a house with it.  It is some farmer's dream, and to sell it would be wonderful for the 85 y o widow who owns it.  It is priced well below "market" could be someone's step towards self sufficiency, could become a model for transition away from monoculoture, but the property as is provided a living and a profit to the couple who lived there several decades.  It could slowly be converted to perma culture practices, as peach orchards do not have a long bearing life anyway ...  That's my thinking anyway.

This morning I got the email that says that there was a reply to the thread,. but it appears that instead the post has been removed. 

I don't really understand why or how it vanished and my first thought is that somehow it was deemed inappropriate.  I have no desire to post inappropriately, nor challenge an existing and productive community. I am just hoping someone can let me know what happened and why, so that I know better what is appropriate and what is unwelcome.

Thanks so much for any light that can be shed on my question.

Penelope

OK, sorry, and never mind.  I went back the email I received this morning, put my glasses on, and discovered it had been moved. 

As I said, I'm new here.  And learning how things work.  Most of all I am glad it was in the wrong place rather than not welcome.

And gosh all mighty, I see I posted THIS in the wrong place before I made it back here.

If a reply to your thread has been deleted, it was almost certainly because the reply was spam - we get a lot of it!

If something you posted (presumably not spam) has disappeared, it might have been moved to a different board which is better suited to its content, but in that case there should be a re-direction notice telling you.  Sometimes if you manage to post two almost identical posts then one of them might get deleted to keep the board tidy and less 'spammy' to readers.  

And it's always possible that I'll have a brain spasm and click 'delete' when I mean 'move', but as far as I know I haven't done that yet...

That sounds familiar.  I think I moved it to "rockies" - the regional stuff.

Hi Paul,

I am astonished that you can maintain such a level of responsiveness.  It was moved and I did eventually find it. 

Thank you

Some days are more responsive than others.
