    Question Disappearing Threads

    When I saw Sams post on the Impossible Burger I thought Id look up a similar thread to refresh my memory on what was said. Surprisingly I am unable to find it, the whole thread.

    Is this common? Was there a reason for its removal? I cant remember anything in the thread that may warrant its removal so is it a technical glitch?

    Just curious.

    My recent post about JK Rowling was moved from Lounge to Non-mgtow related.
    Sometimes it happens, sometime it's glitch. I guess Unboxxed would have to reply on this one as I can only imagine what the possible scenarios are.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    I remember the occasional message, or messages getting the chop without an explanation, but never a whole thread.

    Same here, that's why I thought I would ask.

    Maybe he came up with a plot to estrogenize men on the planet. The perpetratiors then covertly qwashed the thread?

    I've removed entire threads started by trolls who sneaked in, but usually it's just the one post in it, maybe two, can't recall. There's been a number of real lulus in the Opposing Views that I've removed as being so stupid or irrelevant to MGTOW that it's not worth comment, but you'd never see those to miss them. I'll let in the marginal ones, often just to show our members the kind of stuff that comes in.

    I've removed threads started by members when containing Principles violations and therefore no need to bait fellow members into joining in the violation.

    Are you certain you are searching correctly? I am able to see posts and threads that were removed but I usually stumble onto them if I was not the mod who removed them. To find the one you mean, I gotta start somewhere as it's a large database. What unique word(s) or phrase were in the Subject line or in the body of any post in that thread that I could use to search for it myself? And, if possible, what username said it? Then, once we confirm the thread I find is the one, I can answer your question (if I was the one who removed it), or probably determine what happened using any offline notes left by another mod or, lacking that, take a stab at what happened based on any other database clues.

    Once again, ain't me. But you might want to hook up with the fellow in the Impossible Burger thread who was talking about lactation and "moobs". He might be up to something.

    Oh, wait, that was you!

    What covert activity are YOU up to? LOL.

    I started the thread myself within the last few weeks. I can't remember the title but the text did contain references to the impossible burger and there was also a quote from the Burger King ad about meat eaters liking vegetables too, although I didn't mention Burger King directly.

    I've searched using the following words / phrases to no avail:

    impossible
    burger
    impossible burger
    vegetables

    Hope this helps.

    It got easy. I simply searched for every thread you've ever started in any sub-forum. None are marked as removed. I even tested it by temporarily removing one of your threads, performed the search again, and that thread showed up on your list to me as removed. (I have restored that thread.)

    So, if you perform the Advanced Search that I performed, using the same site tool available to all members, you should pull up a total of 45 threads by you as of this writing. I, too, saw 45 threads that are visible to members, no additional ones that were marked as removed.

    There's two ways to remove visibly from the site. The way that leaves it visible only to mods, available to restore visibly, and the way that leaves it visible to no one, not even mods. In the latter case, there would be no residue that the removal ever occurred. It would flat be gone, unable to resurrect. I haven't removed any thread started by you, this I know. No mod here would have any motivation to remove an innocent thread, let alone permanently. That would be extreme and unwarranted. I don't recall an earlier Impossible Burger thread prior to sam's but that doesn't prove anything. If anyone had posted in your thread, maybe they will remember it.

    No, that's Sam's thread, the one that made me notice.

    I performed the search as you suggested and it is showing only 43 threads, not the 45 you mention. Have 2 more disappeared since?




    I know there were at least a few replies to the thread so if anyone else remembers it if they could post a reply here I would be grateful.

    It was more about Impossible Foods than Burger King.
    I began by saying I had been tempted to give it a taste test, then showed a little research about what apparently goes into them, and ended with something like "Do you still want to try one of these monstrosities?"

    I still pull up 45. Are you searching identically to this? :

    Re: Disappearing Threads

    Yes, that's the screen and criteria I used. I repeated it a few times since your latest post and it comes back 43.

    Here's something though, I tried it one more time and it came back 45, but when I went to the second page it said 43? I then went back to the first page and it said 43 too? Hmmm.

    Two of the times I tried it, I got 0 hits. It was weird.
