That's just sad honestly, in my opinion.
Sure I've got my moments where I treat people like dirt, but I do so accordingly; but if you're a member of staff it's my professional opinion that you should read the ENTIRE topic before you base your opinions on it's subject at hand. It's truly disconcerting to see that a member of MPGH's staff, especially someone that has been staff for a while now has done something so shamefully assumptive. He should have read the thread thoroughly, and then attempted to assist said individual, and instead of being helpful, as staff is required to do so he simply deleted the thread.
Honestly, it wouldn't even have hurt to move it to the appropriate section. I'm not sure if he was having an "off day" or not, but whatever the reason it's inexcusable to perform moderation actions without necessary reason, and if such is the case then that's just wrong, no if's and's or but's about it.
I agree with @DanK, I think that the thread should be restored so that we can continue to assist said member, and show them the warm welcoming side of our section that a lot of "leechers" don't get to see because they really ARE begging.
By the by, this is not a personal attack on the staff member that took disciplinary action on the thread, but more an argument of general purpose. It's the first thread that actually HAD relativity that has been deleted, and I don't perceive that as a fair action.
