Looks like.  I guess that means the ebola is cured now? 

Hoooray for science!  Thank you ebola czar!

Surprised it wasn't just moved to R&P, which would have served the same purpose.

Aww, I was really looking forward to bumping it in 2 months time when Ebola in the US is completely gone and asking Eco-Logic if he still thinks it would have been a good idea to SHUT IT ALL DOWN.

who started the Ebola thread?

Because that is bad form to delete a thread.  It's one thing to delete when there was a mistake/ or duplicate thread, but to delete a whole thread because maybe you didn't agree with something is something that is discouraged.

When attempting to access it via google results, there is an error:

Quote
An Error Has Occurred!

The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function FFCopyright() in /home/gtroot/public_html/forums/Sources/Load.php(1742) : eval()'d code on line 417

We did recently have a database hiccup that might have caused an issue.  So before you pick up the torches and pitchforks, there might be a technical explanation.

Of course, it was an Eco-Logic thread, and I do see a Remove button on the first posts of threads that I've started...

I didn't realize the thread creator could remove it at any time.

Wait, what? You shouldn't be able to delete a thread once other people have posted in it. I thought it wasn't even possible to delete a post once it's been read by other people.

Well let's continue on. How many people in the US have contracted Ebola since Eco Logic had his latest meltdown?  50? 10,000? Inquiring minds want to know.

There is in fact a remove button!

IF, however, Eco removed his own thread, I think he should be temp banned as it's just pure bad form (and I've gamed with him in the past and like him from those experiences).

Speaking of Eco-Logic, I'm curious how people feel about the increasingly provocative line of signatures he's been using these last several weeks. 

The first one I noticed was a broadcast that anyone who wanted Governor Rick Perry to resign was "part of the problem."  Just after the first report of an Ebola outbreak, he changed it to a warning that President Obama is acting against our best interests.  That apparently didn't get the reaction he wanted, so the updated and current version reads:

Quote from: Eco-Logic
This signature is not personal, at all.  If you're not awake enough to realize our country is being taken down by an organized effort from a puppet chimp being controlled by a movement older than me.  Wake the freaking fack up.


I cannot think of anyone else on the forum who would be so classless as to spam every single post they make -- again -- with their shrill political agenda.  However, if someone did, other people would at least have the option to open a thread in Politics & Religion where a frank exchange of ideas would not derail the 'What Are You Buying This Week?' thread.  We don't have that option with Eco-Logic since he was banned from the P&R board for repeatedly telling everyone to fuck off every time he left GamingTrend forever.

Outside of his signature, I have not seen any examples of Eco-Logic trying to key people up.  He's clearly capable of contributing to the community in positive ways, yet occasionally, randomly, chooses not to do so. That's why I'm not calling for any specific action here, as I have no idea what to even recommend, but I'm interested to hear what others think.

He did that another time and was told to cut it out.

"Puppet chimp" alone should warrant some kind of discussion.
