I am reasonably sure that if your post had been actually deleted you would have received a private message about why the deletion had occurred.

In thinking over what you experienced, I may have an explanation. I am not privy to exactly how the board mechanics work, but I have observed the following; when a first time poster creates a post with a html link the board software will relatively quickly (I don't know how often this process runs... once an hour ... once every 5 minutes?) place that post in moderation (this is a spam prevention feature). Once the post has been placed awaiting moderation the post will not be available to the public for viewing until a Board level moderator reviews the post and takes it out of moderation.

Looking at your first post a board level moderator removed a link

Approximately 17 hours after you posted. For all or most of the 17 hours your post may have been in an auto moderation state awaiting moderator action. This would explain everything including why no one responded to your post for so long.

This "auto moderation" state is only for folks with very limited posts (less then 10 posts is my SWAG) with a html link in the post.

I see (but can't act on) posts in a moderation state as a forum level moderator in the calibre forum, but most folks would never see these posts until cleared by a board level moderator or deleted as spam.

I hope this clears up your mystery.
