Thanks for the kind words! They are appreciated.

It almost makes it sound like I was fishing for compliments! Really the reason I posted it was because sometimes we see posts from new members that are suspicious and since we want to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, we check into the background. Often during the time it takes to check into it, good members have posted helpful replies to what turn out to be scam artists, people looking to gather email addresses, sell something, or play their silly mind games. After we've nailed the baddie and sent them packing, we usually we remove the thread. I'm sure it leaves members scratching their heads wondering why we deleted a perfectly innocent thread. I think in the most recent case it was so blatant that some members smelled a rat even before we had the proof we needed to give that member the boot.
