100 Years of Magic Posters

Postby Edwin Corrie » November 11th, 2004, 7:14 am

What happened to the thread about foreign editions of this and other books that was started a couple of days ago? It seems to have disappeared.

The person who started the thread could have possibly deleted it. If you start the thread, you have the option to delete the whole thread. Capish? ;)

Edwin: I did delete the post and have asked the moderators to forward my reason to you by e-mail (alas, can't contact you directly since your e-mail address is not available on GF). Clay

As a reader of the deleted thread, I can't help but be curious as to why it was deleted. I found it an interesting topic!

I thought it was a fun thread as well. Sorry to be so mysterious, but I replied privately to Edwin because I did not want to invite a potentially negative series of posts re this deleted thread. Basically, two GF readers wrote to me and objected to my use of the term foreign books, inferring that I was somehow looking down on foreigners. Im really at a loss to understand this interpretation, because (IMHO) my post, if anything, demonstrated my genuine interest in magic titles published in other languages. I would think that making such a post would indicate respect for such titles, not a lack of respect. Be that as it may, to avoid discussions in GF on what is politically correct, etc., I just pulled the plug. So there you have it, and hopefully now Oliver Stone will have nothing to make a movie about Clay

No, Clay deleted it himself for the reasons he stated above. In fact, I'm locking this thread now, since it's done.
