Who deleted the topic?
You fuckhead.  I had just replied.



Just move it if you your feelings are butthurt.  But don't delete.  Or move to your private secret forums.

Asshole

Of course I already did.  If it had been moved there I would never have started this topic.

The irony is that this topic will get memory holed as well.

How can I tell what's been deleted without a thread title?  Your screen capture doesn't even contain the url address box.

TR policy is to not delete stuff, so I want to track down what happened.

We don't even delete threads by spambots.  We move them and edit the links.

AFAIK, NO topics have been or are being deleted. There is a limited number of people who are authorised to delete topics, and I can't think of any of us who would lightly do that. So, before you start slinging accusations:

What was the topic title and where was it?

It was a Socrates thread about evolution. He had just started it.  Several of the regulars here had replied as well.  I don't know the title.

I guess it could be an accident/software glitch, but if so, that is even more disturbing.

It looks like it was merged with this thread: http://talkrational.org/index.php/topic,1886.msg160773.html#msg160773

I don't know who merged it. Typically we'd state it was merged. I didn't do it, raven didn't merge it, and I don't see any other mods online right now.

But merging socrates threads has been done before, because he often starts threads on the same topic in Science after the original has been moved.

Isn't it ironic

When I tried to post that I got an error message (which I have never experienced before)

No, I did not screen grab it

I may have been feeling a little short-tempered when you posted.

Do not taunt elderly Canadian TR admin in goddamn February.

It was in the mid-80s here today if that makes you feel any better.
