Just a minute ago, I moved from Around the Campfire to Longterm Preparedness. The first topic was something like "Sheep, sheepdogs and wolves".

I clicked on it, but the next screen said there was a problem, and to use my Back button, which I did. Clicked on it again, with same response. Hit my Back button, and the topic had disappeared.

So I did a search in each of those sections for a year, 0 results.

The topic may have been posted by BillyM, but I'm not sure.

Was I imagining things?

You aren't dreaming. I read it an hour or so ago and wanted to come back to it, and it had gone.

Too political?

All we can do is all we can do.

You were NOT dreaming. I second Frank's comments!!! I didn't think it was that political,,,but maybe I don't use the same score cards as others....
The best luck is what you make yourself!

You're not dreaming. I only saw the first two posts, which were not over the top, but I could imagine that that there was a potential to go downhill quickly.

My guess is that one of the moderators sent it down the Memory Hole.

Now I just need you to look right here [flash]

Not my post. But I was wondering if the post was drifting into dangerous sh**ple territory.
I recall that word/phrase is not welcome here.
Maybe the Mods got to it?

The same thing happened to a thread about a week ago whose subject line was something about "Hiroshima". When it happens with no explanation it can get kind of frustrating.

Ghosts in the electrons. I added some political comments to a thread a while ago and the entire thread went bye bye.

It wasn't me, but from the title it would have been. Once more, Doug has his rules. When you set up a website you get to do that.We try not to be humourless and sometimes Doug himself and the Mods can slip over the line. The website has an enviable reputation online and a worldwide audience. Some catchphrases or subjects, even if we personaly embrace their sentiments are by nature alienating. So they go away ASAP like my dirty laundry into the dishwasher when company drops in.
