    There seems to be a rash of threads disappearing lately. Some I saw before they vanished, and didn't seem to be a violation of ToS, just possibly an embarrassment to a few.

    What gives?

    Unannounced cleanup?

    Wonder if my post count will be cut in half again... ;)

    Has this phenomenon started since the new season of Lost?

    I swear, I saw a thread posted by AlteredEgo an hour ago . A sensibly, logically argued thread that was, strangely, disappeared.

    "Disappeared" is the word usually given to political dissidents of authoritarian regimes. Usually used as an adjective (as in: the protester was disappeared after the junta took power.")

    Does it now? Hmmmm.....:33::biggrin1:

    Yes, I saw that post as well. I don't know why it was disappeared either unless it was disposed of for being inflammatory or some such thing though the poster was directing comments directly to the mods, not the member.

    I am disappointed.

    That was one of them, yes. As I said before, to the best of my knowledge, there was nothing in her thread that merited banning (she was not, of course), warning (I don't know about that), censoring editing or deleting.

    This is the third one that fits that category, so far this week, that I'm aware of.

    I guess that within a month, the only topics that will be approved for posting are described here.

    I seriously doubt it was inflammatory, though I cannot verify that, because I cannot go back and read it again.

    Inflammatory, no. Embarrassing, perhaps. Let's see if this thread disappears, too.

    I heard a phrase once, "your actions followed the letter of the law, but your actions were politically inconvenient."

    Must be the case here. No violations, just "inconvenient."

    What happens when you plug in a NewYork/NewJersey style to the Frankie/Annette California formula.

    I've had a thread deleted that I didn't think was very controversial. I think it got a few responses before it was axed.

    I'm always expecting to be Rickrolled whenever I click links in these kinds of threads :tongue:

    you could tell it was nearing the end with Beach Blanket Bingo, because they had Annette let the 'girls' go a bit more free/open in that one (also, time and ease of censorship).
