If it got intentionally disappeared that's cool.  And if you want to disappear this thread too, that's cool -- just PM me so I know the thread deletion wasn't in error/a bug.

And apparently deleted, cause I can't find it anywhere.

Are we supposed to keep mum about Calvin/Rage, or was it locked for another reason?

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. ninja

It was locked and apparently deleted by Ron.  I think he locked it because it was quickly turning into a "Hey Rage/Calvin also said he'd do this and he didn't do it..." pile-on.  The direction it was going meant I would have probably locked it too if he hadn't.

Why was it deleted?  Dunno - you'll have to ask the big guy.  No big conspiracy going on - I suspect he just didn't want to leave the thread filled with people airing their gripes about Calvin around in case he decided to visit again.

I think Ron let off a little steam about the situation out of frustration and decided to nuke the thread.

My comment about Calvin not leaving feedback was facetious; I didn't mean anything by it. Clearly he's had other priorities. frown

Calvin, come BACK!! biggrin

It was hard to resist the urge just now to create a "Where's the "Where's the "Where's Calvin/Rage?" thread?" thread?" thread.

Sorry guys.  Working overnights means I have to sleep half the damned day to recover.  

To answer the question, yea, I nuked the thread.  I locked it and really left Adam no place to defend himself.  I wasn't about to unlock it again just for that purpose, and I wasn't going to leave all that vitrol out there without his reply.  It was a catch 22.  Sorry I didn't post about it sooner, but I just woke up. smile
