There was a thread i was looking at

It was like 5 minutes old very unpopular

Im not mentioning the name but

it was deleted from the forums. Do the devs have the power to completly delete a thread

WHy did you delete it instead of shutting it down?

Im jsut 100 percent curious, i dont mind it being deleted.

I just want a dev to comment on this plz nobody else, also lock this topic afterwards

These forums are not a public space, freedom of speech does not exist here.

 

They definitely have the power to censor/delete anything you say, and they're 100% within their rights to do so.

 

It's no different than if you went into a McDonalds and started screaming obscenities and/or bad-mouthing the establishment -- they'd be totally within their rights to throw you out of the building.
