Here's what happened... Being curious about one of the serial posters on ARRSE, I threw "KevinB" into the ARRSE search function and started trawling through the results. After the first 30 or 40, I gave up and concluded that maybe there hadn't been a thread concerning this ... gentleman. So, somewhat surprised, I started one which enquired whether others shared my views. Less than a dozen posts later, I find the thread moved into ARRSE Hole. I then realise, as I try to reply to a poster's question, that it has also been locked. No warning post, no PM, just fast and stealthy action. As nothing had been posted to the thread by a Moderator, I don't even know which of them is responsible. Just to avoid misunderstandings, I'm not complaining and have the utmost of respect for the Mods, who do a job you couldn't pay me to take on. I'm merely bemused. As a relative newbie, I'm hoping that somebody will enlighten me. Is it common for a thread to be pulled without warning, explanation or comment?
