Just a question, not a complaint -- if a post is deleted for whatever reason, is the poster usually advised as a courtesy or caution? I've noticed my own posts disappear on a couple of occasions in the past but never knew why. All the more curious as they tend to be innocuous to the point of being bland!

It depends. If you have violated one of our rules and we remove your post you'll receive an email explaining why your post was removed. However, if your post is just one of many in a thread that is removed then no you won't receive an email.
In a case like that, it's the thread that is the problem and not necessarily your post. Usually the member that started the thread will get an email in a case like that - but no one else.
It is the moderators role to decide what stays and what goes. You may see no problem, but the moderator does. So the post or thread is removed regardless of what anyone else thinks.
Ps. We removed a post after yours in this thread. "Chezdeluxe" made a "joke" in response to your post. We removed it because this is an Admin help forum, not a place for jokes. We did not email him to let him know. We just removed his post. So, you see whether or not an email is sent depends on the post and why we remove it.
