This is an example of a malformed post.
When a moderator sees a post like this, he has a choice: fix it, or delete it (often with the comment "MF" which means "malformed" or "NT" meaning "no text.").
I fixed the post, but if I was in a bigger hurry, I'd have just deleted it.
Please don't make malformed posts, or they may not last. They can't be quoted properly, so you're foisting the responsibility onto others.
P.S. Just happened to be the one I found. It may be @Hardballs first malformed post ever - I don't know. I'm not picking on you. Just an example. :)
