Dear Campbell Ritchie & programmers in general, I started a thread yesterday November 17th on Javaranch, only to log in later today to have found it got lifted. I was wondering why, if I may make so bold, as it would've just begun to get interesting (unless that was the problem - ie: it not being hypothetical enough for those concerned (enough to've lifted it)). Actually, upon reflection, It has now occurred to me that you might be suspicious that my post - having given the address of another site, may be trying to advertise another site, well I was kept being asked for evidence as to what I claimed was true, as you just wouldn't accept what I said, so that is why I gave the site address for past results, anyway that address isn't the site of the subscriber's system, it is just a site of past results of the game organisers, that the system uses. I am sorry if my post sounded if it was promoting the system but as I did not give the address of the system using site, and will not be anyway, I think you must be misconstruing my intention, which is merely to find out the system's method, for my own greedy ends, and those of who want to assist. With that matter hopefully cleared up, would it a) be possible for you to put the thread back or b) Do I start again from scratch or c) Is this thread banished forthwith never again to darken the portals of Javaranch? Yours, Hoping to hear, Simon.
This is *not* a revision of a topic. This is a duplicate topic. The other topic has been moved to a forum for this type of discussion. I recommend that you reply to that topic, instead of starting new topics here.
