Re: Removed threads

There is nothing to stop you starting another thread about it - but it wouldn't be allowed to follow the same path as the other one.
Whilst it may have attracted a 'record' quantity of replies, the quality was lacking.
It's a balancing act to do what is best for this forum and whom you think deserves a ban and who may have received one had we gone that route could be very different.
As above this way everyone gets another chance.

Re: Removed threads

And yet the most contentious, argumentative, and now nasty Brexit thread remains?

Hmm. :sad:

Good call, poor cull?

Re: Removed threads

It wasn't the thread but a small number of posters that were the problem. I hope the mods will keep an eye on them to prevent further trouble.

I notice you've posted in it, however.

My mistake, thought it was still in place. Sorry.

Oops. :embarrassed:

I.e. we must rule out a no-deal Brexit. :wink:

Re: Removed threads

There was a thread started here today, from someone who had newly registered today, entitled something like "Forums - why do you use them?" and which until a few minutes ago (time now 20:46) was unanswered.

I answered it and it seemed to immediately disappear.

Would that be the forum spam filter kicking in?  Or some other reason?

That wolf in sheep's clothing?

It must have crossed all our minds surely, even though I myself 'thanked' the post.

What crossed my mind when the thread disappeared was a long-range super-powered ignore filter in action!  :wink:

Re: Removed threads

@RobPN @shutter  Strange goings on. Maybe a mod can explain.

Also yesterday there was a new thread 'Chunky Peanut Butter' started by Anonymous. The poster's history was not available but it appeared to be Infinity who posted. All previous posts from him have been deleted from the forums. What is going on?

@artmo 

Slight correction there, it was started by 'Infinity' (I saw his Username and 'Barbados' avatar, which later changed to the 'Image not found' picture, then the anonymous head image) who later became 'Anonymous', most likely when his account was closed.

Not so.  Check this one out for example.

 


What is going on?

Infinity has left the building.

 

PS  I guess you missed his 'Goodbye' thread?

Yes I missed it but won't lose any sleep over it. Thanks for the update.

My guess is that he will be back under some new username.
