    I have seen many threads over the years be removed (actually probably 15 I would estimate). After the removal of these threads, there is always a follow up of "Why-did-the-thread-get-removed" thread. I truely don't think anybody has those questions, just want to keep those topics going that the moderators are obviously trying to preclude for a host of reasons. I think that we as a group should be respectful of their decision, as many other forums have been threatened with lawsuits, etc., I understand their caution.

    Thanks for your support, Han.

    A few months ago, I could count on one hand the number of threads that I made disappear (we don't delete them, just move them to a non-public forum).

    Lately, for whatever reason, we've been attacked by shills relentlessly. I've moved more threads in the last few months than I ever have.

    I guess we should take that as a compliment....the mills are trying to attack us because we've been very successful in exposing them, and therefore cutting into their bottom line. :D

    Having done what Bruce, Bill, and Chip have done (when I was a moderator here a couple years ago), I can attest to two things:

    1. Rarely was a thread permanently removed.

    2. If it was moved, a lot of careful thought went into the decision.

    It's a tough job and I'm glad the dynamic trio continue to do it. :)
