Did you remove the posts in the 6 links as well, apart from your own post?

P.S: No offence, I want to make a point here. Moderators, when they know that they have made a mistake, have the power to edit/delete their post. Even I wish I could edit/delete some of my earlier posts. Can Mods do something in this regard? Like say, we request the Mods to edit/delete some posts by providing the link to that post, the Mods discuss among themselves if its OK and then try to effect the change. In this very thread (and others as well), there have been many instances of repeat posts and the members have been notified by fellow-members and warned by moderators. I know the Moderators have their hands full with moderating the site, in between their busy schedules of personal and professional life. But then

No, I haven't. You can ask Sam about those.

We don't discuss all the time. Unless it warrants for discussion.

It's a huge thread running for years. A strict tracking is an issue especially when moderators don't follow this thread on a day to day basis.

Why I mentioned this is because of this

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post800558 (The Official Joke thread)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post800728 (The Official Joke thread)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post800754 (The Official Joke thread)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post800900 (The Official Joke thread)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post800908 (The Official Joke thread)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...tml#post801361 (The Official Joke thread)

Now, one interesting conflicting thing

Just for the sake of posting a Joke or anyother matter, if you need to check whether it has been posted before, it'll take a lot of time. In the case of popular threads, it will take hours (ok ok, minutes). But having said that, I wouldn't want to read the same post again and again.

My point is simple: In some cases, its really hard to search and find out whether it has been posted before!

Arif_t01,

There is a reason that moderators do not infract members when they re-post a joke, but simply suggest (or "warn") that they use the search feature within this thread before posting.

Also, most repeat jokes are pointed out to moderators via "Report post" - and we delete the post. This is exactly the action that Rudra has taken on his own post.

I'm not sure i see the point you are trying to make, but this is not the place to discuss it. Please PM me (CC:Rudra) if you wish to discuss this further.
cya
R

PS - for some reason, all the links you have provided point to the same page.

I'll give you 2 words - advanced search. Takes 15 seconds tops. Copy a few words from a joke you intend to post and try it.

Sinner, when everyone told me about they spotting a car with an exhaust i got wild on them & they also added that it was a custom exhaust & i was like, why the hell you guys did not wake me up for that drive. I missed that note. And when i got to hear what they has to show me i was like W.T.F?? Crazy & had a hearty laugh too..
