Default Disappearing threads or posts

From time to time a spammer will spoof his way onto the forums and make posts that seem reasonable and get replys from members. If an entire thread disappears it is because a spammers work has been deleted. The information is still on the forums, just not visible to members. It is kept as a record for future reference. Individual posts by a spammer are dealt with the same way. On occasion a member accidentally makes a duplicate post. When the information is identical one of the moderators will delete the duplicate. Threads and posts are sometimes moved to the correct forum related to the subject matter. If you ever have a question about a thread or post that has disappeared contact any moderator and they will check on the reason.
