Do some of the threads get deleted sometimes? I was following a few and it seems that they are no longer on here anymore, they were recent ones. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am fairly new and have not learned all the "forum ways"
Threads are never deleted, however at times the conversations will become very heated and angry words can destroy the meaningfulness of the thread. In those cases the thread can either be locked or removed. Once it has been removed it is no longer available for public access.
We will also on occassion remove a single post or a stream of posts in an effort to save the thread. We will normally PM the persons that are affected when that happens. I believe I missed you on a stream that I just removed. I apoligize for that.
