Echo & Alexa User Discussions and Support Forums

When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Renegade600, your message has been deleted since you stated that you are no longer looking for an email app.  Where your message should be is no longer an issue.

I suggest that you do not irk the moderators for such a trivial issue.

OK, I'm honestly not looking for an argument, just clarity.  I didn't see the post in question, but, why would someone's message be deleted because the issue or question was resolved?  I've never known that to be the case with other resolved cases.

the moderators are supposed to be there to support the members of this forum and to answer questions.  If being asked questions irks them, then they should NOT be a moderator.   I had a valid question about the thread and why it was moved and then why it was deleted. 

 It was still a discussion thread where others could have made comments about what they use and if there were issues with what I was looking it.  It should be treated like any other post.

I think irk was the wrong word choice.
I certainly wasn't irritated or annoyed.
The forum has the ability to private message users including moderators.
Multi posting the same question/post is considered spam on many forums and I will delete spam!
Being a long time member will save some from being banned as well.

so how was it a multi post and how was it spam when I only had one thread about it at the time it was moved and deleted????     IT WAS NEVER A DUPLICATE THREAD!!!!   It was NEVER POSTED in another forum!!!

Your original message was posted in the main Echo discussion forum. Your message asked for suggestions on an email app that works on Windows and Linux. You made no mention of an Alexa skill. You are a technical guy and you know the difference between an Alexa skill and an app. For that reason your original message was moved here to this sub-forum where you can talk about whatever you want, including email apps. Over the next two days you began to report about a dozen messages from other people stating that those messages did not belong where they were posted. You reported messages asking about Prime Music on the Echo or WiFi issues among others. Shortly after that, you modified your original message to include having Alexa read the email.

Perhaps moving your original message here was an error. You were not clear that you're looking for an Alexa skill. You specifically asked for a recommendation on an app that works with Windows and Linux.

You became irksome after making a dozen reports on other users. I deleted your message so that we can just move on instead of still arguing about why your message was moved in the first place. After all, you stated that you already found the email app that you needed. Therefore, no message = no moved message = nothing to talk about. The end.

I would like to ask you to refrain from making demands on how to run this forum, what should happen here, and what shouldn't happen here. I don't think it's your place to be making such demands.

The moved post was not spam however this post (http://www.echotalk.org/index.php/topic,2408.0.html) is!
Why? You asked this question in the moved thread and I deleted a duplicate of it which you reposted.
You threatening to continue to post this question is also threat to spam the board although I'm sure you don't see it as such.

duh - it was posted in the echo discussion forum.  should not have to mention it in my post.  it should have been obvious.   You are right, maybe I should have been clearer for those who are not that familiar with how forums work.   If you did not understand the post, ever consider asking for clarification

At the risk of pissing anyone off, I request that this thread be closed for addl. comments, and everyone COOL it!  It's just not worth it.  I'd like to think we are all friends here, and everyone is trying to be helpful.
