Yes I know that you lose first digital publication rights when you post your work online, I'm not a moron, I know quite a lot about the publishing world, but I also think that if the moderators are going to refuse to remove peoples work from the forum, there should be a STICKIED post/note, in the forums where people post there work, so that they know you are NOT going to delete their work once it is posted online. I don't think it is a difficult thing to do. To remove someone's poem/story, when they provide you the link to do so, I also don't think that it is hard to write up a quick note stating you are never going to allow someone to have their work removed from the boards. ANyways, something to think about. Good day.
