So apparently a forum glitch deleted posts here, which Im kinda half pleased in this case as I thought they were deleting my thread about oscillator comparisons due to what I said about the P12 vs the Rev 2 vs the Virus Ti.

Apologies to them.

That didn't happen because of your post. It seems like everything was lost on this forum that was posted after March 9/10 (depending on the time zone you're living in) as of yesterday. It's a technical issue, nothing personal.

I understand and share the concern that DSI would patrol this forum, looking for and deleting any and all critical remarks about their instruments.  But this just isn't the way they operate.  Regarding your comments on another thread about the quality of Prophet 12 oscillators: in the past, I've posted comments that were quite critical of the instrument.  By comparison, your comments were mild.  Not once did DSI warn me or delete any of my comments.  They allowed free discussion of the instrument and all the various opinions that it brought to the forum. 

What DSI will not tolerate is an unnecessarily rude remark, and especially, whining and wailing about some aspect of an instrument that an individual simply does not like, and the pig pile of wise-guy ranting and joking that often follows.  But even then, DSI's first response is only a polite warning.  Forum threads can quickly degenerate into ugly exchanges by characters who thrive on this sort of behavior, but who wants to read it?  And that's another aspect.  People get sick of such forums because they're overly negative.

Do not fear to post on this forum serious comments on an instrument - whether complimentary or critical - as long as they're made in a decent and courteous way.

Would love to hear what DSI have to say on the reason for the deleted posts and if changes will be made to avoid this in the future. Fun fact is that the old forum at some point lost weeks of posts and later all the attached files were gone too. Site maintenance is hard work even when outsourced!

"Recent Unread posts" now works for me now, never did before. Maybe they updated some software on the forum?

Edit: actually it still isn't working :(
