Yeah. I'm not a conspiracy nut, but I'd like to be notified if I commented in a thread that was deleted, and why it was deleted.
Otherwise it's shady. I did comment on that thread and now I'm questioning the actions of the moderators and the content of the thread that was enough to DELETE and not just lock it. I mean, what could be that bad that we couldn't see messages?
... maybe George dubya's administration had something to do with it.
