Has this not been sorted yet Henry?

I can think of no good reason to delete a good spirited quiz on classic boxing trivia.

especially two years running! Both times deleting your questions about it!

It's baffling.

It happened last year, one of the moderators knows it annoys you, and thus did it again.

It was in the wrong forum. Such correspondences should be put in the Suggestions and requests forum.

YES, this is the 2nd year in a row someone deleted the Quiz and me asking why the Quiz was deleted. I 1st thought it was an honest mistake deleting the last years quiz, But when they deleted my asking asking why, I no longer thought it was a mistake. Now the same thing happened this year and all I am asking is WHY?

PhillyPhan69 I thank you so much for your comments, it means a lot to me!

Last year a few posters stated that they were going to get to the bottom of this, But nothing happened.

Just a side note, I am recognized as one of the most respected people in all of boxing and a lot of boxing people ask me why do I bother going on sites like this, and things like this, prove them right. I have been asked and done Eulogy's for some of the Great names in all of boxing when they pass away and I give them a "9" count. You can google my name to find out more.
