Why were 291 responses removed about Rap?


I do not care for rap.  It is not music.  I abhor unbridled censorship.  Why were 291 posts systematically removed,  then the post deleted by moderators?   I did have a serious reply, followed by two tamer ones. This is not about me.

Works for me.

In your OP, you write: "I do not care for rap. It is not music."

Later, in comments, you write: "I do not say that rap cannot be music."

Which is it?
What I don't understand is why can't members keep disruptive posts that don't answer the OPs question to themselves? For instance, millercarbon's post above basically smacks of ignorance and preconceived notions and has no relevance to the OPs post. If some members want to talk about rap/hip-hop why is that so offensive to some. There's lots of people on here that listen to music that others don't prefer but we let that go on. I find it incredibly distateful that people feel it's both appropriate and acceptable to treat our fellow members this way. 
You learn a lot about people in threads like this. Rap.......maybe a little.  Live and learn!
rmdmoore,

"...why can’t members keep disruptive posts that don’t answer the OPs question to themselves?"

This thread was, according to OP, not about rap, but about Audiogon practice and some disappearing posts.

"For instance, millercarbon's post above basically smacks of ignorance and preconceived notions and has no relevance to the OPs post."

It just happens that millercarbon’s post addressed exactly that. In his way, in an attempted sarcasm, but he actually addressed the OP.

Which you and I have failed at.
