    Hey, I thought you guys were gonna at least give common courtesy to us minions and tell us when you were deleting posts?

    example
    Maybe pulling heads out of fourth points of contact would be advisable. If you can't keep your own mods on a leash, how do you expect to keep the rest of us on a leash?

    It is standard policy to send a PM about a thread or post that has been deleted. But the problems relating to the "bankruptcy" thread have not yet been resolved, so it has not yet been decided what stays and what goes.

    The CPAC thread was locked after violations of rule #1.

    It was later reopened after any posts related to issues from the bankruptcy thread removed.

    The "deleted" posts are not gone, they just merely aren't visible to the public until we decide what to do about the subject.

    But PG is good people.

    I'm curious about this myself, especially the bankruptcy thread that disappeared.

    The bankruptcy thread disappeared because the original poster cleared everything in his original post, so the thread was no longer valid, or on any sort of topic.

    I bet he regrets ever even opening that can. Especially since he couldn't "delete" the parts that other posters "quoted" him on.

    Hopefully he learned a lesson from the experience but... I have my doubts. :(
