There are real reasons (more than likely), they are just too lazy to reply with their reasoning or are forgetful and forget to do so.

That sentiment has been repeated for a long time now. I forgot how long truly, but well over a decade now.

It's the same as outright hiding a thread, which doesn't really happen much anymore, but used to be a frequent occurrence.

Hi everyone, I can assure you that it is important for us to give a reason when hiding, locking, or moving a thread.

Basically, we wish to keep the thread/post creator informed by explaining any moderation actions.

We will make sure to double check that any moderation actions are explained, thank you for bringing this up to us. :)

doesn't seem productive. hide a post without reasoning and the poster may not know what rule was broken and won't be able to take corrective action later on.

I've hidden a few posts recently that were just outright spam or intentional flaming by users who definitely know what they're doing/know better so I didn't feel it necessary to "preach to the choir" so to speak, but I'll make a point of making it known exactly why, regardless, so people can stay informed.

Thanks for bringing this up! :)

I've only seen Fmods hide posts without leaving a reply when the post was made several pages or days ago, or the person who made the post knew perfectly well that he was breaking forum rules.

If it's a post from long ago, it's a good thing not to mention the post hide since it risks shifting the focus of the thread conversation onto the Fmod or the rulebreaking post.

And I don't see a need to 'preach to the choir'.
