Topic's /Posts getting deleted ?

Sometimes I am a day or two behind a post, I get email confirmation and a copy of a post but when I click on it , it's gone. 

Has anybody else noticed this, what warrants a deletion ?

It is sort of an odd situation, partners using a forum but moderated by the company we discuss so technically we don't have free speech which I suppose you can't expect on a forum run the company.

I was reading Joey's post about the 2 single beds and I wanted to reply to it but its gone, maybe it does not happen much, but just wanted to see if others noticed it.

It seems to me, while you were writing your post, it took some time and Booking logged you out from the system.

In such case you should:
1) use third party service to write your replies so you will not loose your text (autosave). Use Word or Shrib (online notepad)

2) just relogin

Hey cassid ,

There are guidelines to posting on the forum : community guidelines, I know he who in question did not abide by them. So that is probably why you were unable to reply to him.

Also if you check this thread: Guest Payments and Finance FAQ you will see a section where Laura explains a bit more about deleted posts.

I semi agree with you on the "free speech" thing, considering Booking.com likes controversy so much that they won't change the fact that we can't delete bad reviews, but I get why they have these guidelines. The guidelines are very wide, so you still have freedom there.
