Over the last couple of days/weeks I have noticed that threads and/or posts just disappear with no warning or explanation. Now I realise that this forum is someone elses train set and we all post 'cos they give up their time and I for one am grateful. The problem is if the mods (I assume it was you PtP) just remove threads and posts with no explanation of why then they are just making more work for themselves in the long run as no one realises why they were removed and will probably start a new thread on the same subject. Surely it would be better if the thread heading/first post was kept with a Modly edit explaining why the subject matter was removed and the thread locked? Not only that but it would save me thinking I am going insane because I read something one minute, think up a reply and come back to find a big black hole.
