  • In a topic when I needed help, I was discreet and used the tinyurl as a link. But the moderator added my code when trying to help me. Adding the code really wasn’t necessary. In that code, the links revealed the url. Could my code from the moderator’s posts be removed for professional reasons?

  • By policy, rules here, these requests are usually not done…that said – add ‘modlook’ as a tag ===>

    A mod may do this for you, please link to the exact post…

    Also, it will take a while (a long while sometimes) before Google removes the link from their index…(and many other search engines may have listed it now also)

    There is also a validator link that hints at the url too.

    I thought by being discreet in my first post, [s]he would follow my lead.

    What is the reason you want your link removed?

    I don’t want my tiny url link to be removed as that is discreet enough.

    I want the moderator’s link to the validator removed which wasn’t necessary to give that. It hints at the url. And then I would like the code that the moderator included in his responses removed as that also gives the url, many times. Why did he have include my code in his responses? He could have used the pastebin, like he suggested for me to do.

    I would like my code with the url visible removed for professional reasons. It just doesn’t look good on a publicity and professional reasons.

    Only for extreme reasons are links removed, please state your extreme reasons.

    kannued: Generally speaking, we don’t edit people’s posts or remove links like that unless there is some specific threat or abuse of some sort. Simply not wanting your site’s URL in a post isn’t a valid reason. People can post links anywhere, no site on the public internet is “private” and URLs are public information.

    Everybody posts links and asks questions. There’s nothing “unprofessional” about that.
