Ha! so, i might not need those online pharmacies (yet!).

Btw, there was another update yesterday (yup, must be about 5 updates in 2 weeks) and it did not create an extra reco partition.

Isn't this similar to the Windows (Z) drive thing that happened a year or so ago after an update? I seem to remember it showing up on my desktop, not sure if was 'Z' but think it was.

I think it was a reco partition that should have been hidden but instead it kept showing up on Win10 PC's? .... something like that anyway. But if I remember correctly it would disappear after a re-boot. Dunno if what danielson's experiencing is similar? .... who knows - or maybe the drugs are just not working for me and Windows 10 has finally blown my mind

Okay.
It's just of late (at least for me) that more than one word was making it hard to post.
A bit frustrating to know which one it is after composing a paragraph...
Maybe a sticky with a list of nasty words for users to check before posting could be handy?

Sure, a useful sticky so the spammers know what to avoid to get their time/money-wasting garbage published

I was already considering whether to ask MC to delete both my reply and his quote of it once others have had a chance to read them.

Sure, not a problem.
At least now we know why.
What a bummer though!

Have now hidden those posts.

I'll be happy to communicate with (regular ) members in private if there are any other queries related to this topic.

It might be polite to inform the posters what you did and allow them to access what they wrote.
I spent quite some time composing my post and to have it just disappear without explanation does not reflect well on the forum.

Yes, the email I sent regarding a censored word was ignored.

No email was received by myself otherwise it would have been replied to.

It's always best to use the forum PM facility as occasionally our email contact system filters out content in error.
