That may well be true, but someone still has to implement and test it. And, if you had not noticed, there has been a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes recently; the hamsters may be wearying.
I represent a software company, Devart, and we have previously posted many our products in the Codeproject catalog, but later Devart account has been deactivated. Now we are not able to update the products and some information about product versions and features is very outdated.
Is there a way to get the account back? Or may be is there a possibility of creating a new account and transferring all of the existing products to it?
And is there a way to do something to cancel the account deactivation or is that permanent? The thing is that lately we haven't been posting any content, just updating the existing one, and all we need is at least an ability to update the products already listed in the catalog.
It wasn't offensive in any way (Nish has provided the text I posted in that thread), but I am posting it thinking if the system is somehow being abused. The post was removed with just 1 vote, and I wonder if that's even possible. Also, another post I made in the same thread is rated a 1 (saw that by visiting my messages[^]).
I don't care about the 1 vote if that's one, but since down voting is disabled for general discussion forums, I wonder if the system is being abused by someone (or perhaps that post is marked as abusive, and in that case the 1 vote registered should be fine).
A more pressing concern is, how was one of my posts removed with just 1 vote? Do we not require more votes for deeming a post as abusive?

It is if it's a top member. With the spammers in place we lessened the requirements to quickly get rid of poor messages. A platinum level member has decided your post was offensive and it's been removed.
I disagree with this and have reinstated the message.
Just a thought: Messages could be reported spam/abusive and removed in a jiffy only if it's a new member's post. For instance, one "top" member's vote shouldn't be sufficient to remove another top member's post as abusive.
If the post being reported is made by a good old member, then several votes must be required before it can be removed (with no respect to "who" is reporting it).
Also, I'm not sure if it's just me, I can't see the reinstated message.
